Maybe someone will understand

My story may be unique to some, dull to others but hopefully someone will have the time to listen, answer, explain, relate.

Ive been in the Army for over a year now, I did martial arts under my uncle (A 5th degree master of Shao Lin Kempo) and started training MMA before my back went and that pretty much took me out of it.

Im decently in shape because of Army Physical Fitness every day.

I want to start training again, Not for anything, there is boxing tournaments here every now and then, but I have no interest in them. Just for me. Myself. I want to train and become more then what I used to be. I have access to 2 gyms whenever I need them.

What Im wanting is for someone to help me with a plan to ease back into training, Not really ease...But go about it in a legit way. What to eat, (Being as I'm not over weight, but about 20lbs above the weight class I would want to be at), Good daily workout routines after duty hours, and separate training exercises because Ive forgot most.

Thanks in advance. If this is a bother, just pass it by, if you feel like sharing some knowledge, feel free.

I would like to help. I just don't feel like anything I say would be of much help, because everything I know, i don't take my own advice. I do know a thing or two about martial arts, Kenpo, more than MMA, and if you want to listen to my advice, then I'd be more than happy to give it.

hey bro

i served 3 years with 10th mountain and did a 12 month tour in iraq....i found it difficult to train to the caliber i wanted because they always had me doing something. as i'm sure you must already know, their pt is not quite up to our standards as fighters. i scored over 300 on every pt test and what they wanted me to doing took priority over how i wanted to train... i found this extremely frustrating as i'm sure you do aswell.

OK...it sounds like you're wanting to cut? Lean protein, complex carbs. Keep doing whatever you've been doing.

If you don't have anyone who can hold the pads for you, I'd write down combinations for bag work, and do that in intervals with plyo and jump rope.

Stretch a lot, run speed intervals to build your endurance, and see if there's someone who will train you in a grappling/throwing art like BJJ or judo.

Good luck meng!

Thanks for the advice! I will definitely use every bit I can get, and granted Im in a headquarters unit, our PSG "Gets some" and we get some good PT here. I'm not the best at running, but I can outrun everyone in my platoon usually.

Keep the advice coming, and thank you for what youve already given

I'm surprised no one else in your unit/ station/ whatever can advise you.
