George St. Pierre Returns To The Octagon

For anyone interested, GSP has gotten himself healthy and will be back in the octagon to fight loud mouthed Josh Koschcek. The fight is scheduled in early December an will be in St. Pierre’s home town of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Georges St. Pierre is the personification of motivation. Through martial arts fitness training, he has disciplined his mind and body to do what he wants them to. And it drips off him for everyone to see.
If you follow the UFC you are familiar with arguably the best pound for pound fighter in the world in GSP. Especially after Chael Sonnen handed a thorough beat down to GSP’s main competitor for the spot, Anderson Silva. Even though Silva eventually won the fight, his untouchable image was forever marred just like his face, when Sonnen shocked the world just as much as he did Silva in their championship bout.
But, back to GSP, he and Koscheck will also be coaching competing ultimate fighting clubs in Dana White’s reality show build up to his headliner fights. It should be interesting to watch the two polar opposites in character work their respective stables into fighting shape both mentally and physically.

UFC’s reigning welterweight champion headlines the main event at UFC 124 on Dec. 11 at the Bell Centre vs. challenger Josh Koscheck. The two are building up their title bout by coaching opposite teams on Season 12 of The Ultimate Fighter, UFC’s reality-TV program. The new season debuts on Sept. 15 on Spike TV in the United States and Sportsnet in Canada.

Martial Arts Fitness Training – BodyWeight Workout Outside The Dojo

In the recent past Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) competition has become increasingly popular. But, it also provides a competing image to what most people thought of martial artists. 20-30 years ago the prevailing persona of a martial artist was sort of like a philosopher that lead a pretty minimalistic life. And, even though they may have looked like your average person they seemed able to perform amazing acts of physical power that appeared to go against natural laws. Today, in the 21st century, the martial artists of the UFC and Strikeforce look more like the stuff of nightmares but equally demonstrating physical abilities that seem more than humanly possible.

Martial arts fitness training and martial arts conditioning exercises have been respected by many athletes and hardcore fitness folks because of the results they produced. Even before Bruce Lee took fitness to the next level in martial arts circles, each art made an emphasis on developing mind and body through rigorous physical training.

It doesn’t really matter what your image of the martial artist is. Let’s face it, the conditioning and physical training required to master the human body takes a whole lot of effort.

Whether you’re in a dojo, or, the octogon, the preferred method of martial arts fitness training is a workout without weights. Fighters have found that by using their own bodyweight as resistance against gravity a more complete workout can be obtained in a shorter period of time.

Routines that include exercises like the ‘plank’, tabata squats, ‘mountain climbers’, and the familiar push up and pull up are easy to do at home exercises. For a greater challenge you can increase the intensity of many of these moves by simply ‘slowing down’ or changing your body position.

Doing bodyweight interval training is also a way to get your heart pounding while at the same time improving core stability and overall muscular strength.
