UFC fighters are some of the fittest athletes in the world. One of the main reasons for this is that they have to crosstrain and train their entire bodies. There are not just a few muscles that they need to train. They do not need huge legs, arms, chest, etc. like a power-lifter or bodybuilder; however, they do need strong explosive muscles that can work intensely for a relatively long period of time. Most people do not want a body like a power-lifter or bodybuilder. They are too big and bulky. Bulk does not benefit an MMA fighter, in fact it is a hindrance, so if you want to look trimmer, feel fitter, and actually get in much better shape MMA training can help you out.
Circuit training is certainly excellent for getting your body in the best condition possible in the least amount of time. Forget about all the other fads on the market right now, if you really want to look fantastic for the summer in the least amount of time possible you will need 3 things:
A balanced diet
A will to work
When a body builder starts out in circuit training, it is important that he or she builds up on the intensity gradually and progressively. For instance in the first one month or so, a single set for every exercise is enough to stimulate growth and build a foundation on which later intensity levels will be solidified. After that, in the consequent month, then you can advance to two sets per exercise, ensuring that you maintain the exercise form and proper dieting.
