I need some help determining a set routine?
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?
i'd like to have a workout that encorporates some bag work, lifting, cardio and endurance
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.
im only 16 and ive been doing tae kwon do for 9 years which doenst really help mma that much. i've beem grappling for 2 years but the first year i didnt do it much, i still don't do it that much only on tues and thurs and occasionally other times. i'd like to take bjj or muay thai in the future
by grappling, do you mean the crappling they teach at TKD places?
no ive been taught a bit of jujitsu
hah do you still train tkd?
it took me 7 years to get to first degree ive learned a ton of stuff...it has also increased me mentally
first degree in what?
9am-Cardio (Jog a mile, jog/sprint intervals a mile, stair master for 10 minutes, 500 jumpropes, then 10 up/down stairs)
10am-Weights (Squat, Push, Pull)
7:30pm-9:00pm.- Wrestling practice.
TR: Submission wrestling from 6:30pm-9pm.
I want to throw in some boxing or kickboxing if I can on T and R.
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.
well ive just started lifting and im not that big to begin with
You mean in the gym?
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.
how tall and how much do u weigh
Gj on the cutting. Weren't you like 185 recently?
stretch every morning
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.
Thanks. Yup I've been averaging about 1.75lbs a week.
