Proportion of workout towards Weights/Aerobics/Plyometrics/etc.?


A few questions I hope to get your expert input(s) on:

What proportion of your general workout time (not direct MMA training) is dedicated to:
- Aerobic/cardio exercises?
- Strength training with weights?
- Strength training with plyometrics?

Is it OK to combine any of these 3 in the same workout session?

For example, my leg day consists of starting with plyometrics (4 different jumping-type exercises, 3 sets each, 1 minute rest) and then continues to weight exercises (squats/leg presses, etc. 4-5 exercises, 3 sets each). I feel great results from that, it helps me with explosive power in ice hockey skating, but wonder if it is not a smart way to train...?

And what kind of upper-body plyometrics would you recommend?

I already do push-ups with a clap, for example, and a few others, but finding other upper-body plyometrics is a bit challenging.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
