    Crossfit is great, although maybe a little intimidating. Get someone with a clue to teach you to clean and snatch before you start doing crossfit workouts.

    www.trainforstrength.com is a good place to start. The free bodyweight workouts there are enough to make good progress.

    I think the point is that you should be training your entire body, which means all of the major muscle structures (hips, thighs, back, chest). Think in terms of lifts and movements, not body parts, as this is how the body is arranged. Consider the basic types of movement possible: upper body push, upper body pull, compound hip/thigh. These are addressed with the squat, deadlift, leg press, chin, dip, pulldown, pullover, bench/chest press, and overhead press. You don't have to do (nor want to do) all of those, but pick some to cover the entire body.

    Learn what good form is. Practice your form with ridiculously light weights. Do not attempt to be macho and charge right into intensity. Gradually increase the resistance from workout to workout so your form is kept solid but the training becomes more demanding. Eventually it should be very challenging.

    Train hard, go home, eat, and rest. Come back and do it again in a few days.

    Overhead presses (military press being my favorite overhead press) have the most shoulder (deltoid) recruitment of any exercise and being a compound movement makes them particularly suited to strength development as well. however they are quite taxing on the shoulders and may not be appropriat for an in-season routine (for a fighter this may be if you are training in your discipline hard 4+ times a week) because of the added stress on the tissue and joint. If this is the case I would reccomend incline presses (around 45 degrees) to avoid injuries. yes you might be able to train with overhead presses year and not get hurt, but why risk it when incline presses have good shoulder recruitment and a more sport specific bar bath and range of motion. Bear in mind that most overhead presses can be performed with a barbell or dumbells to add variation and avoid burnout.

    That all being said you would be better suited to have a good full body routine (that included heavy deads and squats some time during the week) for some time, wrather than add good exercises like overhead presses to an otherwise shitty routine. so... SQUAT!!!

    Rows will work your posterior delts, and while that is important (and should be included in his routine), I don't think that is what he's after. BTW bent over barbell rows are superior to bent over Dumbell rows. I only do the latter if my lower back is too fried for the former.

    *edited to change a term.

    I think you meant posterior deltoid fibers.
