    well...if you mean just workouts that u dont have to pay anything for...then push ups, sit ups, shooting drills just the usual regular workouts...if you want an MMA workout then go with the Bas Rutten MMA Workout

    Well if you talking about BJJ, Judo or any other grappling style mental visualisation is a good one, ie mentally practice your techniques. Also take a book with you about your style and read it.

    Masturbate daily...so by the time you get back to the mat, your mind will be perfectly clear and focused on grappling.

    Or drill what you know, hit the books/DVD's, and do cardio.
