Well I don't have a 45 pound bar at the moment, and I have so many random weights I just mix up plates in kilos and plates in pounds. I imagine when I buy a new bar that all the even numbers, such as 200 or something, will be 205.

You should look into Infinite Intensity by Ross Enamait, or Starting Strength by Mark Rippetoe, they are both good for athletic/combat sports movements and workouts.
yeah...i can tell you know whats good for fighters....seeing as muscular endurance is bad...oh and so is size...and what none sense do you speak of?

yeah listen umm, ill stick to what i know as a fighter, because its what i do. feel free to make suggestions, but before saying something retarded like muscular endurance is bad, please know what your talking about from a fighters perspective. also go watch wand train, you might notice some similarity's.

ross training is good...but impractical. i do some similar things as him just not everything.

He said hypertrophy is bad for fighters.. not muscular endurance.

ill give him the benefit of the doubt on this one. but it really grinds my gears when people tell me that oh your work out sucks you donno what your talking about blah blah. its fairly rude.

also he should compare it to the wanderlei and gsp work outs.

I typed out a very good response, but my browser lost connection and my post disappeared.

The gist of it was:

Muscular endurance is great for fighers, but it shouldn't be mixed in with strength builders, or cluster****s in general.

I don't follow Wand's workouts because he's a workhorse who's training capacity rivals that of the Energizer bunny, and what he does 6 weeks out from a fight is never what someone should do when they're X amount of time away from a fight.

The whole workout is nonsensical, and done in a weird manner, and focusing on fatiguing one movement of muscles, and then neglecting others. Blanket weights are a good way for the exercise to not achieve specific goals. For example if you can only press 45x8, and the workout calls for 50x10, you are going to have to rest long enough for the exercise to not work on strength, endurance OR cardio.

Just out of curiosity wukka, about how long do you wait between sets? I see you doing a whole bunch of one rep sets with the same weight like with barbell snatch and was just curious. I really enjoyed looking through your log though as I really want to implement a push, pull, leg type of workout.
