You can have the great technique, but if your conditioning is not there you are going to have trouble winning.

I am amazed at how many athletes on the Ultimate Fighter, tank out in the second and sometimes first rounds!

Now I know you're giving it your all but come on! Get conditioned or the fight is boring to watch.

So how do you get conditioned for MMA where you need power strength and speed?

Being flexible keeps you from injuries and allow you to use more agile moves.

Stretching is integral for martial arts. While much of the stretching can be done from ROM (range of motion) drills, using a stretching machine can take you to the next level.

There are some varying types of machine. For a smaller more compact machine try the KWON strteching machine.

If you want some advice on stretches, we have some right here on our site. If you want some free articles on stretching for jiu jitsu see Flexibility for MMA.

Jiu Jitsu Training

Ok let's say Jeff is too simple for you or you want more techniques. You see Jeff is more about conditioning and Ari Bolden is more about Jiu Jitsu.
That is not to say Ari is better. Jeff is the more established fighter. I am strictly speaking of the videos.

He has series that teach you techniques that is very well done, from a video standpoint.

We write about Ari and Sumbissions 101 in this unbiased report.
