i was wondering if you guys could give me a good mma cardio routine to start with that i can increase gradually on my own. i dont really have all day to train i work from 6am to 2:30pm so if you guys no a good routine let me know. the reason why i said mma cardio is cause i wanna be in fight shape and not like a tri athalon runner (all skinny and wirey)

i think that is to much time at once to be workin out honestly.

I do like an hour - 2 hours in the monrin 30 - 45 min in the after noon and 1 1/2 hours at night

are you looking to improve your game (doing mma solo excercises) and lose weight, yet still have muscle? or just lose weight and still have muscle? explain what you mean by "mma workout".

what i was meaning is a cardio routine that would help me out in mma you know so i dont get gassed easily. i dont need to lose weight at all i stay around the same weight give or take a couple pounds either way throughout times in the week.

Don't diss Tae Bo my friend...one of the posters here is a huge advocate for at least 4 Tae Bo sessions a week!

I would suggest you do a mixture of things for cardio. Some running, some swimming, definitely some skipping.
Cardio is good to do first thing in the day, before breakfast even. It will kickstart your metabolism and help you burn fat throughout the day.

DOn't forget that a lot of your best cardio though, will come from your actual MMA training. Heavy bag work or Thai Pads, just grappling at a high intensity will provide a great cardio session
