Pull Ups: The first “M” in MMA stands for Mixed for good reason. As you know, this is because there are mixed disciplines involved in this fight sport—as well as in combat fighting. Striking is great, but not all of MMA/combat fighting involves striking. In order to be well rounded in these disciplines, one must also be good at grappling.

Grappling requires significant grip and arm strength. This may involve joint locks, head control, and various other submissions. Being able to pull and control your opponent is crucial and pull ups are great for developing the specific fight strength needed for effective grappling.

The beauty of pull ups is that the intensity can be easily varied without the addition of equipment or other resistance. Pull ups can be done slow, fast, with assistance including a jump to the bar, or just performed with good ole fashioned strict muscular tension.

The benefit here is that grip, arm, and lat strength are significantly improved which no doubt will improve grappling skills, but will also indirectly feed your striking skills at the same time! With pull ups we’re killing two birds with one stone in regards to MMA fight strength.
