Earlier this year, I connected with TRX RIP Trainer creator, Pete Holman, at EZIA Human Performance to go through a couple exercises that you can use to improve your MMA-game. To be honest, these movements can improve your coordination, stability, and power; regardless of the sport you play.
Incorporate these movements into your routine and raise your game.
Movement #1: Samurai Strike
Movement #2: Pitchfork
Movement #3: Jump Press
