    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Working on new program, appreciating input

    Hiho,

    So, following my own philosophy, I trying to get in the best possible shape before I again get serious with fight training. (Coming off a four month period of lackluster, badly structured training, due to exam issues.)

    Basically, aiming at a six-day routine, from Dec. 27th to February 12th, with the goal being weight loss and an increase in endurance, for proper MMA/Muay Thai training.


    Day 1:

    • Morning unit:
      • Lifting, isolated muscles, all sets to max: 5x(sets) leg press, 5x calf press, 5x core roller machine (Engrish?), 5x Butterfly Press, 5x T-Bar, 5x Neck Press.
      • 60 mins stepper

    • Evening unit: 7 sets of max. ab wheel rollouts, cold.



    Day 2:

    • Morning unit:
      • Kettlebell workout, all sets to max: 5x(sets) Tactical Lunges, 5x Swings to Wide Leg Pushups, 2x(both sides) 5x High Pulls, 2x5x Single Leg Box Squads, 2x5x Turkish Get Up Sit Ups
      • "Weighed Walking" with kettlebells, 3km.

    • Evening unit: 7 sets of max. crunches, cold.


    Day 3:

    • Morning unit:
      • Circuit, most likely Randy Couture Grappling Cricuit, six sets: Bent rows, Upright rows, Military press, Good morning, Lunges (each leg), Squat push press, Deadlift


      • 60 mins of shadow boxing

    • Evening unit: Stretching, as needed.


    Repeat routine from Day 4 to Day 6.
    Thoughts, comments, ideas? :)

    Thanks,

    Rafe

    To clarify, are you training martial arts at this time?

    Yeah, sure, though really out of a fixed rythm.

    Mostly, reviving technical stuff, and trying to understand this grappling thing...

    NO CARDIO, AND BITCHTITS, that's what we're talking about.

    To clarify, this is the context:

    Oh noes, BBC section!



    I got to push myself, and freaking hard.

    I am in my hometown from Christmas to February, and I want to use this time predominantly to get my power back. First serious pressure tests were rather discouraging, and, as my coaches put it, I still lack, simply, strength and cardio.

    You know, like, I am not a natural athlete, and, while technique is something I learn rather well, physical aspects are harder for me to obtain.

    What exactly is your martial arts training schedule going to be? Training 6 days a week on top of that can be difficult.

    Back in Germany, really, I have no clue so far.

    If I focus on the training program as described, then likely none. I will already get my ass kicked plentily when I return in February.

    So... What do you think? Is the program balanced? This has been the problem of most of my training plans, in retrospect.

    Well, again, I can't really make any comments unless I know what your additional training is going to be. If you can get a definite answer on that, then it will be helpful.
