    Why, because you require different methods to train them to their potential, that's why.
    Sorry, I was at the gym, anybody remember where that is?

    Ronin,
    To train an aspect to ones full potential, yes. I have done conventional strength training for several years with modest gains. But it seems that at my age 36, I am only going to get so strong regardless what I do. Perhaps if I spent the last 20 years training, this level would be greater than it is. However, given some of my poor lifestyle habits over this period, I must be realistic on my goals, abilities and potential. What I feel I need is a level of strength, conditioning and flexibility sufficient to allow me to train with minimal injuries. This is where I am at now and I would prefer to spend my time training in methods that seems more conducive to my goals.

    Mediocrates,
    Isnít MA training in itself a fitness-developing activity?


    On what basis do you state:

Develop your general fitness characteristics (muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardiovascular ability, flexibility, body composition) through separate procedures designed around human physiology and mechanics.
    Incidently, it was some old Japanese guy on the cover of a book with dumbbells in his hands in a low stance and block that gave me the idea.

    A tremendous amount of time? An hour a day 4-6 times a week on fitness related activities is what I spend. This is excessive?

    All movements for any activity are always performed in a manner and weight that allows proper mechanics of movement and form. I have been doing this type of exercise for about two years without injury.

    Doing MA moves with dumbells or weighted wrist /ankle weights, is controversial at best.

    Don't be hatin' just because I consider your idea to be practically worthless.

    Who is hatin' who/what?

    I don't mind if you or everybody thinks my idea is worthless. I have made gains in strength, conditioning, power and form - this is what matters to me. Perhaps I would have made these gains regardless... perhahps.

    Real strength comes from real strength training.

    What you are describing sounds like a ladies aerobics class.
