Your training program can be the difference between fighting fit, and not fighting at all.
Take the guess-work out of your workout with The MMA Training Bible's Step-by-Step Guide to Peak Performance.
Creating an individualized training program is intimidating, but not anymore...
Feeling overwhelmed? Not sure where to start? We got you covered!
MMA is a tough sport that requires a unique combination of technical ability alongside flexibility, muscular endurance, strength, and power, combined with high levels of aerobic and anaerobic endurance. It’s no wonder so many fighters and trainers feel overwhelmed when they try to put all these factors together in one training program. So, what do they do? They google it. They make it up as they go along, or they follow a generic online program that isn’t tailored to their needs. This can lead to one of the biggest problems in MMA: Overtraining. And it can end a career before it starts.
The main objective of this online course is to teach you the Science of MMA and take you through a simple step-by-step process for creating your very own individualized training program that maximizes fighting fitness in 3, 4, 6 or 12-month.
This step-by-step program is ideal for any fighter, coach, or trainer that wants to build an evidence-based and individualized training program from scratch.
Dr. Jason Gillis and The MMA Training Bible will teach you how your body powers the repeated high intensity efforts that dominate MMA, and how to design an individualized training program that will peak your performance on fight day, no matter if you’re fighting in 3, 4, 6, or 12 months. With this training program you’ll develop a level of fitness that your opponent cannot cope with. You’ll be watching them gas-out right in front of you.

Module 2 to 5: Building your 3, 4, 6 OR 12-Month Training Program.
After you’ve mastered the science of MMA, start building your training program with Dr. Gillis using our 4-step approach. First, you’ll need to select the right module to watch. If you’re fighting in 3-months, watch Module 2 (5 lectures: 103 min), which teaches you how to build a 3-month training program. If you’re fighting in 4-months, you’ll need a 4-month training program, so watch Module 3 (5 lectures: 109 min, 14 sec), first. Module 4 teaches you how to build a 6-month training program, and Module 5 (5 lectures; 129 min, 39 sec) covers the 12-month training program.
In this way you only need to go through the Module that relates to when you’re fighting. And no matter if you’re an amateur or a pro you can keep coming back to this course to help you build individualized training programs for as long as you are fighting. Check out the general session descriptions below to see exactly what we’ll cover:

What makes us different
Both scientifically and practically, we understand the demands of MMA, and how to peak your performance on fight day.
Dr. Jason Gillis - Founder of The MMA Training Bible - set out to create his first MMA-specific training program when he began pursuing his Ph.D in Exercise Physiology. He was shocked when he realized how little information was available describing the physiological demands of MMA, with almost nothing written on MMA-specific program design - separate from a few websites selling generic training programs.
With so many performance factors to bring together for fight day - Muscular endurance, strength and power, flexibility, anaerobic and aerobic endurance, not to mention MMA skill development - Jason quickly felt overwhelmed and had no idea where to start.
After scouring the scientific literature with little success, he decided to start from scratch. After studying periodization theory he applied his practical experience training in MMA to create the structure of a fight plan that could be adapted to any length. This forms the backbone of the MMA Training Bible's step-by-step approach to program design.
Next, Jason reviewed the scientific literature to identify evidence-based training methods that would meet the demands of MMA. This resulted in a knowledgebase that could be used to enhance a fighters anaerobic and aerobic endurance, muscular endurance, strength, power, and flexibility.
The MMA Training Bible's programming methodology can be easily applied by any fighter, coach or trainer to maximize and peak a fighters performance on fight day.
This course will require some heavy lifting, but the master of this training methodology will have the key to designing an individualized fight plan that can hlep a figher reach his or her full potential. And it's our pleasure to share it with you.

One final note...
Our training programs apply scientific concepts in practical and innovative ways to build powerful fighters. If you apply these concepts you’ll be motivated to train all year-round, and you’ll develop a level of fitness that will allow you to perform at a high intensity over the course of a whole round, and a whole fight. You’ll be watching your opponent gas-out right in front of you. But nothing in life comes easy. If you put the work in you'll have a chance to reap the rewards. It's my goal to show you the pathway to peak performance - it's your job to walk the path.
