Boxing and MMA are sports which involve high intensity explosive bursts of power, with scheduled breaks (generally 1 minute) between rounds. While most modern MMA and boxing athletes use resistance training to increase their strength, the prime focus of these athletes is generally on aerobic training – increasing their work capacity and recovery between rounds.
Many boxers and MMA athletes use ballistic training methods and bodyweight exercises to increase muscular endurance and due to weight class restrictions, many are sensitive about ensuring their body weight does not increase.
Supplementation for these athletes generally centers around recovery with products like our Whey Protein Isolate and fuelling training sessions with Maltodextrin. Also important are BCAA Recovery to protect from catabolism, Burner Combination for appetite suppression and weight control during fight prep. And finally Beta Alanine which can increase work capacity and Vo2 max.
