A little over two weeks ago, I posted about how I like to do my physically exhausting MMA rolling first, and then work technique, when possible.
It's not a unique idea to me, by any means. But I was especially happy when I was listening to a back episode of the Barbell Shrugged podcast featuring Louie Simmons of Westside Barbell.
He mentions training a professional MMA fighter, and having him do exhausting work, then mat work. Why? So he has to practice his skilled work under a state of fatigue.
I felt I was on the right track, but it's something else when Louie Simmons uses the same approach I hit on from just practice experience.
