    I've trained MMA in the past and have had (unsuccessful) attempts at three fights (2 fights cancelled and 1 I got sick two days out) before walking away for almost one year now. Make no mistake that I've done the training before and been in wars in the gym and that I'm not just a home warrior (or whatever the terminology is).

    I want to try again at a fight but my gas tank stinks for obvious reasons. I ran a two mile course and was not impressed. Please know, also, that I understand the best cardio will come from training partners in the gym who want to best you to feed their egos; I just need to get back to formidable shape so I'm not just a punching bag for them.

    Can anyone direct me to a regimen be it found in a book, DVD, Youtube channel, etc. that deals with getting back into fighting shape? Bonus points for MMA striker oriented workouts?

    Joel Jamieson has books, a YouTube channel, and probably some DVDs.

    it is way to powerlifting-centric and does not embrace the different levels of each physical qualities (strength, speed/agility, mobility/flexibility, and energy systems) an individual sport/athlete needs.

    OP, I would recommend 4 books:
    1) Periodization by Tudor Bompa
    http://www.humankinetics.com/produc...h-edition:-theory-and-methodology-of-training

    2) science and practice of strength training by Vladimir Zatsiorsky
    http://www.humankinetics.com/produc...and-practice-of-strength-training-2nd-edition

    3) Olympic-style weightlifting for the beginner & intermediate lifter by Jim Schmitz
    hard to find

    4) Developing Agility and Quickness - by the NSCA
    http://www.amazon.com/Developing-Ag...erformance/dp/073608326X/ref=pd_bxgy_b_text_y

    1 and 2 are for theory (and are science heavy), 3 and 4 are for technique.

    I'm a big fan of Ross Training. You can find a ton of info on his website as well as youtube videos. Guy is a beast. His style involves lots of power / multi joint movements as well as exercises geared toward athletes.
