Every fighter is different but in general MMA fighters train 20-24 hours a week/5-6 days of the week when they are in fight camp (when preparing for a fight). In that period they can train 2 or sometimes even 3 times a day on certain days.
Fast arms give you that speed and snap. The speed helps you sneak that punch past your opponent's defense. The biceps are for the speed and snap of your hooks and uppercuts. Don't try to bulk up your arms for power, keep them lean and fast so you can get those fast punches and fast combinations in!Jan 30, 2011
