- Understand how food is converted to energy, and all about the currency of energy in the human body.
- Understand how your body supports powerful high-intensity efforts in the cage, and the performance adaptations that can result from identifying and training the appropriate energy system.
- Identify the key characteristics of energy systems that allow you to perform at a high intensity for a prolonged period of time, like when you’re performing long combinations or trying to control your opponents body position. Understand how this energy system works and identify performance adaptations that arise from targeting this energy system appropriately.
- Identify the key characteristics of the energy system that allows you to work at a repeated high intensity over the course of a whole round, and a whole fight. Understand performance adaptations that arise from targeting this system correctly.
- Appreciate how all energy systems work together
- Understand the pros and cons of low and high intensity training
- Know how to manipulating movement pattern, work interval, rest interval and exercise intensity to train all of the energy systems that influence your performance in the cage.
- Appreciate how your body responds to training
- Explain the general adaptation syndrome
- Define over-training, super-compensation and a mal-adaptation to training
- Identify the signs and symptoms of over-training
- Understand how to lower your risk of over-training
