I just started MMA and I want to get faster. My trainer told me not to do any weight training because it will develop slow twitch muscle fibers, but I don't think that sounds right. Everything I've researched says the opposite:
Aerobic activity and high rep lifting builds slow twitch fibers
Plyometrics and Lifting heavy (2-5 reps) builds fast twitch fibers
Sprinting builds "super-fast" twitch fibers
So, should I keep doing only the plyometrics with my trainer and sprinting? Or can I throw in some heavy lifting along side.
Keep in mind I'm only going for speed right now.
