what good exercises and drills can i do if i do start doing mixed martial arts?
I'm a 17 year old brown belt karateka who wants to try mixed martial arts. I like the look of the fighting system in mma and would like to give it ago. I have found a local mma gym which is like a 15 minute walk from my house and i have checked there website out and looks interesting. Cause i'm already studying karate and do a little bit of boxing, i was hoping to do mma once a week... till i get the money (gonna get a weekend job) then i would go more... but i can get the money but only would do it once a week cause of paying for karate lessons. So i do know some mma exercises and what kind of exercises to do... but i just want some more advise on what other stuff i can do. I have most equipment at home (from where i would train outside the dojo)... so inconclusion, i don't want to make you read to much... i want someone to give me a sample routine that i can do for mma by myself on a tuesday morning... or any other day if possible which can get me mma fit (don't get me wrong... i think my fitness level is good but of course mma is different to traditional karate)... so a good drill to do hopefully 2x a week in the morning... i'm going to go and start mma next week on a saturday... in the afternoon... 1st session is free so like yeah... (they do classes everyday but i want to go saturday cause of my busy schedule during the week). but please someone just give me a good routine that i can do like twice a week :) for mma... (not so much strength cause i have days when i do strength exercises... more around stamina conditioning, power, speed, movement etc... and some strength)... thanks if i get answers And my mum is paying for my karate classes by the way... i want a weekend job to be more independent and pay lessons for myself... there's things i'm selling so that's how i'm gonna get the money... for now till i get the job... plus i'm at college.

Don't take my answer for it fully, Running is a good routine to do every day, just run a lap or park to increase cardio/stamina, push ups- increases the biceps/ depending on how strong you are/start with at least 3 sets of 10 daily same with sit ups. Bit of weights might help. Good luck!
