    Go to the club, you'll spend years "getting in shape" to go. Just go now and get in shape as you train.

    I agree training first is the way to go. I stopped training for a year and a half and went back to it about 4 months ago. find it easier getting in shape doing something I enjoy, and personally It's easiest for me to train to do something by doing it.

    Just go and train, until you fight no one will care/expect you to be in good cardio shape anyway.

    this aint the heavyweight section u wontget "flamed to fuck"

    anyways, start with one basic "sport" you enjoy either running, swimming or biking, do a shit load of that for a couple months, building up your mileage, then you can move on the next one and do both of those for a couple more months. all three train different muscles, and swimming might simutaniously train the most muscles at once, more than any other exercise. Sprints are also real good.

    that will give you a good base so then u can start grappling, kickboxing ect. with decent cardio already, allowing you train longer and harder.

    Noting your asking hasn't been answered already a million times, just stick to whatever you're doing and find a conditioning routine or program you like and you'll be fine.

    find a steep hill and sprint up, not hard on your joints and it gets you in shape, plus alot of push-ups, sit-ups, pull-ups, build endurance

    Unless you are 5' and 300lbs, don't bother 'getting in shape' just train and the shape will come. Round is a shape right?

    Nope. Read the stickies then ask questions about clarification or something that wasn't covered that way we can discuss something new.

    Right but looking at the recent posts in this forum youd think the FAQs were a very well kept secret.
    I count 3 virtually identical newb threads requesting spoon fed MMA cardio routines.
