Dubya's MMA training log

Im going to attempt doing one of these logs again after I got bored of my last one pretty quick because I did the same routine almost everyday. This time around I'm trying a bit more varied approach, before I would keep it simple by doing weights one day and skill the next day with almost no conditioning drills. I've recently bought a small 50lb martial arts bag which I use for a number of things besides as a normal punching bag, I incorporate it into some of my lifts as well as ground work and ground and pound drills.

----------
Today was a circuit with no break in between the different exercises and a 2 minute rest after each round, completing a total of 10 rounds.

NOTE: The numbers after the exrcise name indicates how many reps I did of that exercise for a single round.

Single leg bodyweight squat - 6 each leg
Handstand Pushups - 5
Shoulder Snatches (using bag) - 12
Burpees w. pushups - 12
Knee Rotations on swiss ball - 12
Seated dumbbell rotations - 40 (20lb dumbbell)
Overhead presses (using bag) - 12
dumbbell forearm curls (20lb) - 12 each arm
Stiff Leg deadlift (using bag) - 12
Pullups - 8
One-arm pushups - 5 each arm
Chinups - 8
Bent-over rows (using bag) - 12



Tomorrow i'm planning on doing some skill specific drills and technique drills for BJJ, Wrestling, Judo and Ground & Pound drills.

No offense but 45 minutes shadow boxing is a bit too much. Other then that, looks good.

yeah i usually have bag work in the place of shadow boxing but the bag started ripping the poor beam out of my ceiling so i had to take the bag down for now until i get the proper supports for it which i hope is soon.
for now im shadow boxing with 5 lb weights for each hand, it does leave my shoulders and arms pretty burnt out after a lenghty workout.

Thursday
20 minutes of ground & pound and ground positioning (top and bottom)
15 minutes shadow boxing kicks,knees & sprawls

Friday
50 minutes strength training:
(following exercises performed with 50 lb sandbag) note 12 pushups between every set as well...

Squats 3x12
Lunges 3x12
Stiff Leg deadlift 3x12
bent over rows 3x12
clean & press throws 3x10
Shoulder Snatch 3x12
overhead press throws 3x12
bicep curls (20lb dumbbell) 3x12 each arm
dumbbell snatch 3x12 each arm
pullups 3x8

10 minutes shadowboxing cooldown
5 minutes skipping

Nice man, how was that? Burpees are the ultimate BW conditioning exercise in my opinion

it was very effective, my heart rate was very high almost right from the start. The shadow boxing with the 5lb weights was also a very good "rest" in between the sets of burpees which also had my shoulders and arms tired as well...The ground & pound session would also help with forcing you to work through fatigue.

Today was another strength day so I performed the following:

Squats 3x12
Lunges 3x12
Stiff Leg Deadlift 3x12
Bent-Over Rows 3x12
Clean & Press 3x10
Shoulder Snatch 3x12 alternating shoulders
Military Press 3x12
dumbbell bicep curls 3x12 each arm
dumbbell snatch 3x12 each arm
Pullups 5x8
Seated dumbbell rotations 2x50

5 minute shadow boxing cooldown

Ill probably be changing my strength routine soon because I've been using this one for about a month now. Just so my body doesn't adapt to the same exercise load ill switch it up im thinking still using my 50lb sandbag ill do bodyweight exercises like weighted bench dips, pushups, situps, pullups, jumping squats, hopefully ill have my new strength routine ready by thursday.
