Keep Stress at a Minimum
While there are some who use stress as a motivation to keep themselves on edge, such a strategy is precarious. On the best of days, trying to control stress and managing it within the bounds of proactive usage is akin to reining a wild stallion in order to reach your destination - often, it works to your disadvantage. This is most relevant in MMA: Fairfax gyms abound with misguided trainees who end up getting crippled (figuratively and mentally) or buckling from too much stress, but reputable training centers will ensure this does not happen. The first important thing to do, of course, is learn how to recognize or identify your stressor: where is it coming from, what is its nature? Once you can see it, try to find ways to minimize it. For instance, if your stressor is clutter at home or personal debts, try to solve these before hitting the gym. Stress has a definite physical effect: it gets in the way of your body's ability to lose fat or even gain muscle, so it's about as useful to MMA training as a piece of rock to the head.
Focus on Core Exercises
Many beginners are so eager in training they tend to spread themselves too thinly. They hit the gym and try to use as much equipment as possible, cramming it all in within a short time period. The result, of course, is not very good--you might end up not improving at all. For the best results in MMA, Fairfax trainers can help you identify and focus on the basic exercises so that you won't end up biting off more than you can chew.
Keep your Training Intensities Variable
When training for MMA, Fairfax training centers are fitted with the best equipment to help you achieve your goals, so it's sometimes easy to get carried away--you can train high for many consecutive days without feeling it too much. To derive the most advantage from training, however, it is best to keep intensity variable. This is because the body needs time to recover: you can only push it so far until something breaks. And breaking something is not what you need! Ideally, for best results, keep high intensity training to no more than two days a week, then intersperse with lower intensity training sessions - not only to give your body a chance to recover, but also to smoothly prepare it for the time when you up the intensity further.
