You can do a fully bodybuilding program with 3 days a week, then why do a program which is not a total body workout; and judging from watching youtube injury prone? Only injurys Ive had is I pulled my back twice in 8 years of training (whilst doing squats), thats a pretty good ratio if u ask me.

If u cant do at least 4 reps its not bodybuilding (max 15 reps).
Thank you I'm not doing "bodybuilding", I'm training to get STRONGER and be more POWERFUL. Bodybuilding doesn't transition into MMA very well, I'm sorry.

Injury dont translate well into MMA either, your selective reading doesnt allow full comprehension.

Must /unsubscribe.

yes sixpack.. all the crap i read from u, what ur talking about is bodybuilding, isolated movement just to show off every fiber in ur body, powerlifting is different its mostly compound movements, and the main lifts are bench, squat, and deadlifts.. all of these give u pure power.. if u dont know anything about it i suggest u google it b4 u argue with wukk.

seriously all ur talking about is bodybuilding.. and the max ur suppose to do is 6-8.. and for pro's its 1 rep of max but thats hardcore.

everything wukkabd said is right you have more chance of being injured due to bodybuilding(musle being isolated and not learning to work together)than when performing heavy compund lifts(teaching your body to work as a unit)as long as proper technique is used.i follow a program very similar to the one he recommended and have seen better power ,strength and even musular gains than my old bodybuilder split

Very well made post repped
i was actually planning on making a post asking for a routine for strength building.

Interesting post. My approach is similarish to yours, although I am focussing on muscle stamina first and strength second.

I also don't do isolated exercises. I break exercises into 'pulling towards me horizontally', 'pushing away from me horizontally', 'pulling down towards my head' and 'pushing up away from my head'. In those categories I try to take exercises that have a long motion and use as much of the body as possible. I use bars and dumbells, and I try to stand (sometimes with an unstable base).

Although stamina is my main objective I have got much, much stronger since I started organizing it like this.

For sure for sure. I put strength 1st but I still train my endurance and cardio as well
