What do you guys think?
 
ok so to start off, i am 150lb's 5'6. I would say i am pretty strong. i am training in bjj, muay thai, and have wrestled for 6 years. i plan to have my first amateur fight in about 3 months, just wondering what you thought of my workout and diet. any things i should improve on. oh and my mma weight class is 145(featherweight).

Monday-Friday

* Wake up at 6:30am (drink xyience Noxcg3)--drive to gym
* 7-9 am. workout muscle specific days(ex. monday-chest, tuesday-back)ect.
* 9am eat breakfast (egg whites-glass of milk-wheat bread and fruit)
* 9:30-6:00 work full time job (eat promax protein bar at 11:30am lunch at 3pm included: usually turkey sandwich wheat bread-fruit,fruit grain bar and at 5 promax protein bar again )
* 6:30-9:30pm (Traing at Lloyd Irvins Martial Arts Academy)(included: muay thai, bjj, mma, and wrestling)
*10:30 Late night Dinner(chicken breast, milk ect.)

Its good but i think you need to add some cardio but your schedule is tight but cardio is very important.

how much cardio should i do? i run 3 miles in the morning and while training from 6:30-9:30 we incorporate some cardio while sparring and what not...How much do i need?

Ah i forgot to read the bottom of the post.

Send a pm to Wukkad or Ironman they know what they are talking about.

ok so anyone else have an opinion?

Hell, I think you're doing great. As long as you get enough cardio into your day (that's probably the most important thing to a fighter), you're fine. :)

Your schedule looks good though I have a couple of suggestions.

As for nutrition you might want to read my post about protein:

Also are you taking a multivitamin? If you are not I have been doing quite a bit of research lately on them and have found a company that imo is top notch. I will be ordering my first bottle this week so I have no personal experience as of yet though. Here is a link to the Xtend-Life web site where you can read up on them, just be prepared when you see the price :eek:

On the subject of cardio I would recommend replacing your 3 mile run with short sprints a couple days a week. You will need that explosiveness like it happens during a fight instead of a long steady paced run.

Would it be beneficial to switch it up? Like one day, do a few miles on a steady pace, and then the second day do short sprints, and so on.

And how long would short sprints be? I run on treadmills and I'm pretty sure I can run on the max a good minute. Thanks. :)
