UFC Champion Zhang Weili gears up for her Strawweight title defense with Hyperarch Fascia Training

UFC fans around the world are eagerly anticipating the next title defense of the current Women’s Strawweight Champion, Zhang Weili. As she prepares for her upcoming fight, she has incorporated a new training protocol called Hyperarch Fascia Training to improve her reaction speed, strength and endurance in the octagon.

Hyperarch Fascia Training is a new training method that targets the fascia, a layer of connective tissue that surrounds the muscles, bones, and joints. The goal of this training is to improve flexibility, reduce muscle tension, and enhance overall performance. This unique approach is gaining popularity in the world of professional sports, especially in football and combat sports such as MMA.

Zhang Weili is known for her impressive record, including a historic title-winning victory over Jessica Andrade back in 2019 in Shenzen, China. Her next opponent has yet to be announced, but it’s anticipated that she may face top fighters in the division, such as ex-champion Jessica Andrade, Amanda Lemos, or Rose Namajunas.

“I have been training with Coach Chong for over 2 years now, even before I was a UFC champion,” said Zhang Weili. “I have felt the difference from muscle driven to fascia driven with more stamina.”

Zhang Weili’s team has been working closely with Hyperarch Fascia Training to develop a customized program that will enhance her strength and endurance. The team is confident that this training protocol will give Zhang Weili an edge in the octagon and help her to maintain her title reign.

With her combination of impressive skills and dedication to innovative training methods, Zhang Weili is poised to make a lasting impact on the world of MMA. Fans can’t wait to see her in action once again and witness the results of her hard work and dedication.

Coach Chong Xie is the founder of Hyperarch Fascia Training, and he is a member of the Fascia Research Society and was a sponsor at the Fascia Research Congress[1]

Fascia is a term that may not be familiar to everyone, especially those in the sports performance industry. Hyperarch Fascia Training (HFT) is a unique training that focuses on activating and strengthening the fascia system of the body to improve athletic performance, recovery and reduce the risk of injury.

The training targets the body’s fascia, which research shows affects optimal muscle contraction[2]. While muscle training focuses on strength and hypertrophy, HFT helps athletes develop proprioception, explosiveness, stamina and precision in their movements.
