Jason Leydon

Every MMA athlete needs a foundational base of strength to be competitive on the mat or in the cage. Our BASE program is here to do just that. BASE is designed for athletes who are at least 16 weeks out from a competition and are looking to increase their total body strength, improve their core endurance while building a bigger engine, all while continuing to train for their sport. BASE is designed to supplement your MMA training and help full in any strength and conditioning gaps. BASE is a (5) days per week program, (3) strength focused and (2) conditioning focused sessions to make sure you’re not burning yourself out and continuing to perform where it matters most.

**When to use: **

  • You’re in the off-season.
  • You’re at least 16 weeks out from a competition.
  • You haven’t been doing a strength & conditioning program to supplement your MMA training.
