    Doing random stuff in the gym will not get you any results. Your body needs something to adapt to. Write down a program on a piece of paper and bring it to the gym, and write down the amount of reps you get and the weight you use.

    Then, every 4-6 weeks or whenever you feel the program becomes stale or is not working anymore, change it completely, to a new phase of training. Proper periodization is key. Like starting with a general preparation phase (not needed for experienced lifters), then hypertrophy phase, strength phase, etc.

    Good luck!

    The only way you're going to find out if you can do it or not is by trying.
    Regarding what you're going to do in the gym, you don't have enough time before your next fight to play around and find out what works best for you. Have you thought about trying something like crossfit?
    You're already skinny(like me) so I don't know that you'll have much luck with cutting weight and improving strength at the same time.

    now that we know your real goals, I would recommend Core Performance, since your weight lifting to improve your athletic performance and have both flexibility and strength issues. You also said appearance comes as a factor, so Core Performance will help there as well. Remember: Abs are built in the kitchen, muscles are built in the gym.

    Fair enough. You're the one who should know.
