Mahamed Aly's Crazy Wrestling Drills Ahead Of ADCC

Mahamed Aly's Crazy Wrestling Drills Ahead Of ADCC
Mahamed Aly's YouTube channel is one of the best sources of training, techniques, and more on the internet -- and his latest video shows his preparation for ADCC later this month in Espoo, Finland.

It's just a shame that it's almost all in Portuguese!

In the intro of his latest video, Aly explains that athletes undergo a lot of stress before a competition: the training, the nerves, the traveling, and so on.

ADCC is known as being way more wrestling-focused than other no-gi grappling tournaments and has maybe one of the most grueling rule sets of all: a maximum possible fighting time of 40 minutes in the final (one 20-minute round, two possible 10-minute overtimes).

To prepare for this physical and mental challenge, Aly's coaches had him run through a series of training sessions designed specifically for the Sept. 23-24 tournament.

And everybody that he wrestled in the video weighs over 220lb!

The workout

Aly explains in the intro (subtitles in English, please!) that he's training seven days a week right now -- which is interesting, considering that ADCC is less than three weeks out.

Even though they've only included approximately nine minutes of the workout in the video, Aly went for a full 40 minutes against a series of fresh bodies while performing active rest on a handcycle.

You can watch the video below. The workout begins at 1:55.
