looks good :thumbsup:
Couple of points from me, try to keep your chest and shoulder workout a couple of days apart. Both muscle groups help press and push so its better to separate and isolate. Another thing is your regimen looks very packed and you mite get over trained. You may have to tweak it a little every week before your totally comfortable with it. I also suggest that you totally revamp your regimen every three months to prevent your muscles from getting used to the work out. Hope this helps.

yeah I just ripped off the weight routine from tito ortiz. Its not supposed to be heavy weights its more about muscle endurance. Im also thinking about making it so the first half of the week I train muscle indurance and the secound half of the week I make the weight training faster paced like cirquit training so I can develop more explosive streghnth and twitchy muscle fiber.

The whole routine is more about muscle stamina than anything so im not going to be lifting heavy weights. The rest of it is just to improve my indurance.

Im going to be doing bag work as my cardio conditioning and set up various combinations that I can use in fights and then working each combination continuously for 10 5 minute rounds. This will also get my body used to the mma application and give me an overabundance of stamina.

I do weights for muscle endurance, using a method that I devised myself. I'd like to share it with you, and if you ever wanted to give it a try, I'd really like to hear how you get along.

Any exercise you do, set the weight to about 60% what you would do if you were doing 3 sets of 8-10. Now you 'staircase' them: do 1 rep (easy, I know), then without replacing the weight/resting, take 5 breaths and then do 2 reps, another 5 breaths without rest, then 3 reps. You will do this all the way up to 10.

You will find this is very, very easy until you get to around 8, and then it is really, really hard. And that is the golden bit- the last 8, 9 and 10 when your muscles are already very tired. In total you'll do 55 reps, but for some reason it is much more tiring than doing 5 sets of 10 and then 1 set of 5. Weird.

As I mentioned, one of the key things is not to give yourself real rest. When I do situps, I do them with elevated knees so that my shins are parallel to the floor, and I don't bring my knees down between sets. That makes it stupidly harder. When I bench press I keep the weight pressed up between reps, I don't replace the bar (stupidly harder, again). For bicep curls, I don't put the dumbells down, and keep my grip tight on them (works the forearms more, but still much harder as a result). You get the idea.

A nice bonus about this method: you go on one piece of equipment once. If other people are in your gym, they can't use your equipment before you've finished a set. :)
