My reasoning...(and based on generalisations, and remembering there is a cross over...)
- High maximum strength, strength endurance, elastic strength, absolute and relative strength, static strength
- High elastic strength
Each places different demands on the body and works across different energy systems. Each are hard in their own right.
Put the two together as in MMA, and you have the added stress of switching between one energy system and another constantly, on top of the demands of each.
For that reason, and from experience (including working closely with the British Army Boxing Team for over a year), I would say that MMA, as a generalisation, places the highest demands for fitness.
what he said..... ha ha
