    everybody has their different goals, but you should be more specific. Do you train in mma/muay thai/grapping? Do you just want to get stronger? Maybe Fitness and Nutrition would be a better place to ask?

    but do you actually train in anything? I'm no expert, but I've found that training in whatever you do (grappling/striking) for twice as long as you spend in the weight room is a good place to start.

    It is also probably best to stick with big compound movements such as deadlifting and split up your schedule accordingly. As for bag work, I like to just carry gloves in my bag and work on some combinations after my workouts sometime, but I am not really too big on that.

    Cardio wise there are tons of things you can do. I find that springing in intervals helps, and also going on the treadmill and increasing the speed every 5 mins by 1 mph until you are too tired to continue helps.

    Just throwing these suggestions up to help you get started, if anyone else has their own way/opinion feel free to contribute.

    Doesn't sound like a McDojo, good.

    Anyway back to the question. It would be really helpful if you let us know about your weightlifting and conditioning experience. We need to know whether or not you need a basic program or one that is a little more advanced. Any information is helpful.

    You mean in the gym?

    Mon: Sprints
    Tue: Cleans/Bis/Forearms/Obliques
    Wed: Bench/Plyos/Biking
    Thu: Deadlifts/Hams/Quads/Calves
    Fri: GMs/Shoulders/Chest/Abs
    Sat: Squats/Tris/Back
    Sun: HIIT

    Everything gets hit twice a week. After the main lift I'll do 1 set of lightweight work with two compound lifts. Plus I do two exercises for the isolation work. The routine is fairly light in order for me to be able to train properly.

    stretch every morning
    push ups
    sit ups/crunches
    bag work every other day (I strap weights to my ankles and wrists sometimes)

    Thats about it. As long as I stay active, I eat whatever I want. I don't wanna build mass, just stay fit and tone.
