I do a bit, trying to get a routine down. Although I'm cutting right now anyways.
5 days a week.
I'm finally getting started tomorrow, going to use christophers base routine. I might have to adjust it a bit to fit with the pushups and shit we do in training, but it looks like it should work.
I lift 5 days a week.
5 days a week + MMA?
I do a 3 day split
5 days a week + 5 days of mma training. I'm young, athletic, and have been weightlifting since middleschool. I'm in college now. What's wrong with that? How is that so unbelievable?
yeah, 5 days of mma/bjj/mt and weight lifting isn't uncommon. The type of people who are into this sport are usually very passionate about it and want to train basically every waking moment of their week.
4 Days a week.
Lifting is for weeners
I understand 5 days a week of MMA/BJJ/MT, but when you're training that much, one should consolidate the number of weight training days in a week.
One can't squat to a deep level of fatigue, for instance, if they're fucking knackered from rolling for a couple hours.
I weightlift a few hours before training. It does not interfere.
Mabey you can't, but every individual if different.
This was what I was getting at, but I suspect many guys will try to follow some sort of WS routine/your routine under hard training, burning out and not understanding why.
But you know me, I'm a less-is-more guy.
If you can accomplish the same improvements/changes in 3 sessions a week, why would you do 5?
I work out only to tone my body
You buy late night ab gizmos, don't you?
I just work a bag. Or do a lot of reps.
I'm all about toning too
I'm almost certain there is a sticky in F&N saying that there is no such thing as "toning".
What would be the proper wording then?
Does my wife counts?
My routine is medium volume. It leaves me with plenty of energy for training.
