Condicionamento físico para atletas de MMA
Fabrício Boscolo Del Vecchio and Emerson Franchini (2013) SPECIFICITY OF HIGH-INTENSITY INTERMITTENT ACTION REMAINS IMPORTANT TO MMA ATHLETES’ PHYSICAL CONDITIONING: RESPONSE TO PAILLARD (2011)1. Perceptual and Motor Skills: Volume 116, Issue , pp. 233-234.
Summary.—This response to Paillard (2011) focuses on the intermittent nature of mixed martial arts (MMA). It also emphasizes that the main goal of MMA athletes is to win by knockout or submission and that these actions normally are high-intensity actions or preceded by high-intensity actions. Additionally, there is evidence that high-intensity intermittent exercise protocols are able to improve aerobic fitness. It is important only to adjust physical training to the athletes’ techniques and tactics.
