I need help building a training plan
I´ve already posted a thread bout leg training. And after the commetns posted there and further information I´ve got, I now feel like i know less than before. So…
In a couple f months I will retake my training. I will de doing kickboxing thrice a week and BJJ twice. I´m also going to do weitghs to build some muscle (not too much). The thing is, I´m still not sure what and how should I do to reach my goals.
These are: build some muscle, cardio improvement, fat loss strengh gain and become a killa.
At first I tought about training weights thrice a week (same days as kickboxing, that is, monday, wednesday and friday), and some kind of cardio on tuesdays and thursdays.
The reason is that BJJ classes are twice longer than kickboxing and more strengh demmanding (from my experience).
I will apreciate any advice, or comment, regardless how hasrsh it may be (promise).
Oh, and if mod com gym is reading this, I´ve already red Crossfit´s article, and i found it quite interesting. But I still lack knowledge when it comes to put that into practice. So, advice like « do x exercise, x series, x reps at x time interval with x% of your max » will be highly appreciated.
Also, any correction or further insight will be also apreciated.
I´m a very apreciative person :)
For starteres, here´s some questions.
How many different exercises should i do in a single session for a certain muscle?
Opposite muscles the same day (i. e. biceps and triceps) or not (i. e. pecs and biceps)?
I though about saving one day (friday) to do a specific work for deltoids (my weakest and very lame muscle) it wouild be only for a certain priod of time, till they improve enough. I found a workout to speciffically train these, and it said that, after 6 weeks, the results would be very nice. Is this ill-advised?
It will be too cold to go running in the open, so, bike, rope, both? How to combine them? Anything else?

If you get a really really long jump rope and attach your shoes to the pedals, you can easily combine jump roping and biking.MY NAME IS ANTAGONY I SUCK AT COMBAT SPORTS KTHX
"blahblahblah, but I don't think I'm going to train tonight."
"Well if that were true, then I'd really REALLY want to come train!"

haha, sorry, I couldn't help but think of that, mostly because of the little smiley at the end.
No idea, but I'm basically in the same boat, so I'm interested in possible suggestions you might get.

In fact, it was a joke about how many times I was using the word "apreciate".

GARH! I knew you would say that! The thing is that they got exercises I won´t be able to do (like those in the outside, my city gets VERY cold in winter) and I´ll need to susbstitute them.
Anyway, I´ll keep a close eye to CrossFit. I liked what I saw.

No, but seriously, you wouldn´t go running out there in winter afternoons. Mu ass freezed over last winter in the way to the gym, and it´s only a five minute walk from my home (yeah, i´m that lucky).
