help me train
help me decide i have a workout on strength and muscle and one on endurance mit/pad/bag work should i do one on a day and on another or just stuff them in one day rest one day and repeat
If you do both on the same day, do the strength first and later do the endurance. Split them far apart if done on the same day.
thanks =) you should give me some tips on how to build a body like yours lol =D
Eat one small child per day for protein requirements. Work hard. Genetics probably plays a role in how you look though.
Seriously though go to
Sherdog is a good site as far as its Strength and Power forums go. The rest of the site sucks. Read that link and any info in the Strength and Power forum stickies should help out as far as routines go.
You left out the importance of drinking lots of beer to perfect those six-pac abs!
--How old are you? At a certain age recovery time becomes important . . .
t nation also has some good stuff, but take it with a grain of salt. especaly when they talk about supliments, as the site is owned by a supliment companie.
This guy's site is called "Hardgainer" and has a lot of thoughts on training for those who do not easily accrue lots of muscle mass, including guys who are skinny. He's also really into Bruce Lee and emulating his training philosophy.
I don't do all the stuff he advocates, but I've done some more weight lifting and working out in years past, and I think this guy has some good ideas. Its worth a read if you really want to research how best to work out.
I wouldn't emulate Bruce to build strength. Low Body fat yeah but not strength (although I'm sure he was strong).
That site seems a little odd. I've never seen a hardgainer type site that didn't reccommend full body workouts. Full body workouts are great for MA as it is more time efficient also.
He dosen't do any horizontal rows (bent over), workouts last 30 minutes, seems odd. Also, he is only doing 3 exercises?
I would think especially for MA weight lifting you need a major pull/press in every plane. Horizontal pull/press, vertical pull/press, and squat/deadlift or two other big leg movements. Thats what I do and then I add in other power exercises like power shrugs, push press/jerk/snatch once in a while. Always striving to increase the weight lifted or the reps. I workout in the 1-4 rep range a lot and have good results.
Training like that (low rep/high weight on big movements, info from sherdog strength section) I have a 315 rep bench, 455 dead, mid 300's squat (test tonight), 210 overhead, and low BF%.
well here is my weight workout(the other work out i had before i dont think it works for me and for some reasons i think weights work better)
Mon: Primary- Biceps, Triceps /// Secondary- Legs
Tues: Primary- Abs, Back /// Secondary- Chest
Thurs: Primary- Chest, Shoulders /// Secondary- Biceps
Frid: Primary- Legs /// Secondary- Abs, Back
Sunday: Pure Bagwork, heavy cardio
