    I'm 5'4'' 163 pounds, probably +25% bf (just based on pics of other people [if anyone can give me a good idea based on pics i can send pics]).

    I've been doing a lot of martial arts to get into shape i've lots a lot of weight, and felt kinda gross and saggy so i started lifting weights, now i feel a lot better about myself.

    I've been taking my martial arts training seriously, but now I want to supplement a workout that can help me excel.

    Goals:
    Lose some more body fat (main goal is to lose my man boobs)
    Increase my cardio/conditioning
    Be more explosive in my movements/acts
    Be lighter on my feet (in sparring)
    To be able to run a mile in 6 minutes (this is more of a long term goal, Bruce Lee said that if you cant run a mile in 6 minutes you have no business being in martial arts)

    Muay thai class (the usual break down, slight variations on the times between different instructors)

    10 minutes of skipping/aerobic exercises
    20 minutes of pad work
    20 minutes of holding pads
    10 minutes of abs/conditioning

    JKD class - mostly technical (some times there is tons of cardio especially during

    Hill sprints (i dont know how long my hill is but it takes me roughly 12-14 seconds to run up it)

    Complex Training: Heavy weights (3 reps) -> high intensive plyometrics (10 reps) for explosiveness

    According to the readings i've been doing the heavy weights will activate the slow twitch fibers, and the plyometrics should be done with a minute of the heavy lifting to activate the fast twitch muscles.
