Ep. 5 - Colin Fedoriska - Strength & Conditioning for Combat Sports

May 3, 2020

In this episode, I chat with Philadelphia-based strength coach Colin Fedoriska. 

Our primary topic of discussion is strength & conditioning for combat sport athletes which includes MMA fighters, BJJ athletes, boxers, and more.

We also discuss corrective exercise strategies for this population, as well as some of Colin's favorite strength training exercises for fighters, plus his favorite conditioning tools for this population. 

Another topic is the common over-reliance on long-distance running for conditioning in the combat sports community.

Beyond its value for fighters, this episode is a great look at some of the nuances of strength and conditioning, including different training environments, in-season vs. out-of-season training, and more.
