I am strongly thinking of starting this routine.

Would this be suitable for a martial artist?
& would I still recover/gain muscle/get stronger if my routine was like this

Sun workout A
Mon - Kickboxing
Tue workout B
Wed - Kickboxing
Thur workout A
Friday -Rest
Sat - Kickboxing/MMA

to aid recovery I would add more calories, and do the weight training early morning, and kickboxing late in the even the next day so I would allow the maximum amount of time between the training sessions.


Perhaps I should cut out one of the mid week kickboxing sessions?

All advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I wouldn't cut any sessions. I would run it as you have ti structured, and allow for several weeks of conditioning.

I played basketball during my muscle building years. It all came down to eating enough so I could recover properly.

Great - Thanks, Ill start a log as well, going to look around and check out some of the nutrition info.
I probably wont need to add massive amount of calories, maybe about 200 or so.

Hey, I've got a few questions
1) I cannot yet do a regular pullup so until I get strong enough I'll be using this assisted pullup machine. How many reps should I set as my goal before increasing the weight on it?

2) Regarding dips - I can do well over 30 reps doing regular dips on a bench, should I just keep on increasing the reps or would it be better to do dips on a machine with adjustable weight and limit the number of reps?

Thanks in advance.

Looks great, gonna give it a go for 2-3 weeks see how it feels. Similiar question as randomguys. I can barely do 5 dips on one set and after that im toast, should i subsitute it for bench weighted dips?

With a couple dude's I've trained with, to get their dip numbers up, I'd have them do 3xamrap on traditional dips, then an allout set on a dip machine for more volume. But, I'd say with pressing 3x/week, you should be good just doing the prescribed 3xamrap sets on the second workout. Even if it is just a few each set. They'll improve with time.

do as many as you can each set, you will soon build your reps up.

i have ran this programe a few times and i am still useing a tweaked version of it, you will have to run for more then 2-3 weeks to see good gains from it, like all programes. Good luck.

The rep goal system is awesome.


As for those dips? Do more *sets* until you can do more *reps per set*, is my advice: start with 5 (or more!) sets @ max reps. Get at least 30 reps total - again, just my advice.

Your body will adapt, and grow, if you do it that way.


For pullups, you could try a resistance band. Or o a few reps, rest a while, do a few more, etc. - then follow that with a bunch of pullup negatives.

Or even do some lat pulldowns in the meantime (3 sets, with a 20 or 25 rep goal, say).
