Well, hello everyone, kinda new here and I love it.
But anyway, I had a few questions if possible.
I have been interested in mma since I was about 16, never really had a chance to try out anything since no car and school. But now 3 years later I would like to try out some type of contact sport, just something to start out, though not alot of choices in my area. Here is what we have...
Many types of Karate
A mma gym, I think it was called, Nice Guy Submissions
I don't really know where to start though? Should I try a type of Karate first or something? Or should I try to jump into the mma gym in the beginning? Most fighters I see have a good background in one certain art which makes me think I should try out one thing. From what I've heard the mma gym is mostly about free training with partners, not many instructors, so I dunno about that.
Also, I would like to get into shape a bit before I start, for the past couple weeks I've been basically running about 2 miles every day, doing around 100 push-up's, as many crunches and sit-ups I can do, jump roping for about 10 minutes, a few pull-ups, and shadow boxing. I have a gym membership but I haven't been in about a month, would it be better for me to go to the gym and lift weights? Or should I just add some exercises to my home workouts so far.
I've also been trying to eat right, my diet normally consist of oats and toast for breakfast, at lunch normally a 6 inch chicken breast on wheat from subway, dinner is normally a salad. I have small snacks of like granola bars and stuff in-between, am I eating healthy?
Well, I know I've asked alot, but any input at all would be wonderful, thank-you everyone.
