I liked a lot of this post in theory, if not--for me--in application. There was a great logical progression to all of it, but I neglected to see anything about isometric workouts for strength building. I know for a fact that isometrics work because I've been doing them for years. I mean. I'm 202 lbs and can bench over three hundred and my day to day workout is almost excusively isometric.

That's not to say that the workouts presented within this post aren't good. They're in fact well thought out and organized as well as likely really effective, but I would have enjoyed another kind of workout mentioned a bit.

Most people dont realize that they need to work on their relative strength before they should ever touch a weight. Because if they work on their R>S they will be able to move more weight during there strength session.

Also if your relative is higher you will be able to move your own bodyweight faster, making you a better overall athlete.

I am not well versed in training, but for me circut training works great as an areobic/cardio workout. Lower the weight, 30 reps a set, one to two excercises per body part. Max rest is 30 secs (moving between excercises in gym). I also do some plyometric excercises at home to elevate heart rate. Jumping rope is great as well as power bands. I am a big boy and am down to 375, I'm 6'5" luckily. I was well over four hundred. I know that is far from a mma fighter. I will get back into shape. Muscle confusion is ideal. I am not trying to build so I am using this technique to burn fat, and build lean muscle mass. When I was in the military I was doing pyamids mostly, and that is where I got my power, but I would still mix in circut, and low weiht high rep days. I think you both have great points of view, but for arguements sake this is a power forum.

Rope training for strength and cardio training?

My gym has this machine and they recently held a contest with it. I saw this machine in the gym but didn't use it until I had the chance to win an IPOD. It was AMAZING! Check out this link - my gym put a short video of the contest online:

Does anyone know if rope training is becoming the next recommended training method for strength and cardio cross training? I know the UFC Gym also has these rope trainers.

Old thread I know. But that SgtSixPack douchebag just made me so ANGRY I had to chip in my two cents worth.

It seems that people still don't understand the difference between strength training, power training, bodybuilding, aerobic endurance, anaerobic endurance and Cardio. (I'm looking at YOU sgt Douche)

I'm a big fan of Starting Strength by Mark Rippetoe and the Stronglifts program. Google that $#!T...Both dispel many common misconceptions about STRENGTH training and provide valuable routines for maximising strenght gains in the minimum amount of time. They are also very similar to the OPs program...Coincidence? I think not, programs like this are the best way to get strong, a lot of people eventually figure this out for themselves, but the OP has already done it for you. Do your research, understand why he's right and buy some iron.

Also, Squatting isn't bad for your knees, Olympic lifters squat ATG ALL THE TIME. I think that there's a lot more research behind world level competitive teams than there is behind BBing at your local gym.

Also, the traps are a back muscle... are you retarded?

Can't believe I made u angry from 2007...

If u read again it wasn't me who said the traps were a back muscle it was the OP, I believe I just said that u train traps after shoulders.

I don't train traps I just do 210kg deadlifts. I can flip a 350kg tire too. Now go ahead and get more angry.
