We'll see how it goes
Thanks for the advice tho Don, and pauly...grow up.
Yea I heard that one is pretty good I have not ued it myself but I think that is designed more for size not functional strength which is what your looking for being a fighter. Let me make 2 suggestions one more tradationa the other well different...
1) a program I used and had excellent success on. Body for LIFE by Bill Phillips. I dropped 47 pounds of fat and gained about 26 pounds of muscle in 6 weeks. Minds you this is a 6 day a week program and I was pusing it to the max. Plus I had the help of a Personal trainer ( for free) and a dietician (myself) so my results were a little more extreme then average but it does give excellent results.
2) and this may sound odd. But find a gymnastics school. Talk to one of the coaches and ask if they can teach you thier body weight resistence techniques. They are not easy and you will need help but they work.
But for a fighter I would be a little leary of what you get off a body building sight as those guys are looking more for size not felxible and functional strength. And it it helps I am currently working on becomeing a personal trainer myself and as I stated I wa a dietician when I was in the Military.
