Muscle Density Training
Ive started training two weeks now on this Muscle density plan my mate drew up for me. Basicly its 4 sets of circular Pull up variations doing 3 reps of under hand, overhand and wide grip per set. Then 3 sets of Max push ups. After that sandbag deadlift and throw again for 3 reps of 2 sets. Afterwards my muscles arent fatigued but they feel worked.
Anyways onto my points does anyone else have a Muscle density program? or any suggestions for that matter? cheers
i dont see this thread going well, but i gotta ask, whats the idea behind "muscle density" training? is it a fancy way of saying strength training?
so basically you're reinventing the wheel then?
there are plenty of already-established strength routines that are probably more effective than yours.
"The hero and the coward both feel the same thing, but the hero projects his fear onto his opponent while the coward runs. 'Fear'. It's the same thing, but it's what you do with it that matters". - Cus D'Amato
if you're looking for a good strength training routine, try stronglifts 5x5 beginners. i've been doing it since march, and it seems to work pretty well.
the website is www.stronglifts.com
What is muscle density?
What are 'Max push ups' ?
Where did your leg work go?
What are your goals? It's actually not a terrible conditioning/GPP routine for fighter -- you'll get you some muscular endurance and cardiovascular work, some grip work, and maybe some hypertrophy for your back.
I have no idea what "muscular density" means in this context, though.
As near as I can tell, the more work you do in a period of time, the more "dense" your workout is.

Not a lot of density there...
Who is your mate and what are his qualifications in drawing up a "muscle density" workout for you?
There's something called "escalating density training", popularized by Charles Staley. It basically focuses on continually doing more work in a set amount of time by manipulating reps and not weight over time. http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_...nsity_training

Sorry about the late reply I was talking to my mate about it the density stuff....
Yes its a fancy word for strength training its aim is to increase the size and strength of the muscle fiber not to pack on slabs of bodybuilders useless "muscle"
Secondly thank you Aaron for your advice. Goals are basically to get back to where I was doing my army training (4 years ago) and to keep up with the brutes in my Krav class lol.
