    Critique my planned fitness regiment

    Primary Goals:
    1. Develop functional strength for BJJ
    2. Develop explosiveness for BJJ
    3. Develop muscular endurance for aik-, I mean, BJJ
    4. Work all major muscles of body to avoid imbalances

    Lose weight, look better, etc., too

    Fitness Plan:

    Sunday: Rest

    Wednesday: Rest and/or Grip Training
    Thursday: BJJ - 2.5 hours
    Friday: Lifting Day - Upper Body & Abs/Back

    General plan - do supersets of unrelated muscles to save time and keep heart rate up. Be in and out in under 2 hours, including shower, warmup, and cooldown.

    Unless specified, exercises are done with 4 sets of 6 reps

    10 min jump rope warmup

    You might want to switch out the squats for deadlifts every second week. They'll give you hammies, glutes and erectors to kill for which I am sure will be very useful when grappling.

    I personally do both squats and deads in the same week but I am doing very little cardio and not doing any MA training so I have more of a chance for recovery.

    Also if the back extensions get too boring, try good mornings, they are great, just don't do a Bruce Lee and **** up your spine :)

    More importantly, how's your diet?

    A lot of this looks really good - plenty of back and grip work there. You're willing to commit a great deal of time to this it seems, which speaks volumes about your motivation. You've balanced the major muscle groups as well, and your reps/sets are spot on.

    I want to second the notion for the deadlift, one of the best exercises for all around strength. The above advice is great but I would keep the squats and lose the hamstring curls and the adductor motions and the calf raises. GOOD squats and deadlifts are all you need.

    If you want to lose fat, regulate your diet. That's all for that. Have the mindset that working out will do nothing for it.

    Bearing in mind that I am a minion of Pavel Tsatsouline, I would highly recommend you investigate his work. His workouts are quick, highly effective, and tailored to military/martial arts needs. Ultimately you may want to look into kettlebell training. The workout you have listed above smacks of a bodybuilder's routine, and they are not noted for being as strong as they look.

    My stretching routine is based on Tsatsouline's methods. I really like his stuff. I do his contraction-stretching stuff.

    My gym DOES have kettleballs. I think I want to get used to actually sticking to a regular routine first before I go rampant with this. I also know Ross Enamait has good stuff with medicine balls.

    The cool part is, my work is such that I can do grip training or other "simple" exercises because I am mostly watching people or doing very little interaction with them.

    I guess I'm gonna have to learn how to deadlift. I tried learning before, but I don't know if I was doing it well.


    Regarding my diet, it's crappier now than it used to be, but I shouldn't have much problem kicking it back into high gear. I'm at 17% bodyfat, never have gotten higher than 20.

    If you have access to kettlebells, I would seriously consider learning to do a good swing with them and do so in addition to cardio or as a warm up.

    I just noticed you're in Chicago, what gym do you go to that has kettlebells? Are they pastel colored and hollow?

    Hahahahaha! My old school (POW Kickboxing) had colored kettleballs by the time I had to move away.

    My gym/school is here:

    The kettleballs are black and iron. Like cannonballs with handles.

    Agree with the "looks good" comments.

    Random:

    A good exersize for functional strength = Turkish get-up. I just started doing these and they kick ass.
    http://www.tacticalathlete.com/tguarticle.htm - decent description, but a little... entheuastic about it.

    How to deadlift = buy the book starting strength. It's worth it. Way worth it. No, better than that. Buy, borrow or steal you a copy. Best book on lifting _ever_.

    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    Don't laugh, at least not until you google "cardiobells"

    I was in Chicago last week visiting the in laws. Some of the ads I saw for gyms (where they do workouts with Bo-ken or other such BS) seemed borderline retarded. This was North Chicago, BTW. Seems like you got a good hardcore gym though. Nice.

    North Chicago is a suburb near Waukegan; north Chicago is Wrigleyville, Rogers Park, Edgewater, etc.


    And I've seen cardiobells. :(

    Ha ha ha! Functionality and explosiveness indeedy! Do your legs work seperate from your upper body in BJJ? Explosiveness! You aren't doing a single explosive exercise! Ha ha ha! Do you think explosiveness grows on trees? Overthrow your shitty workout, stop doing them like your a fucking anatomy chart, and start doing full body movements! Power Curls, Push Presses, Swings, Switch Grip Chins, Rice Bucket Gripping, Jesus, think about your goals and train accordingly!
