Newcomer here..

Well, this is my first day on this website, first day on a forum as a matter of fact..

I'm about 150 pounds and I'm 6'2" give or take.

I've been weight training and following Stronglifts 5x5 program to the best of my ability.

Living at home with only a 343 Competition Series weight bench, a single dumbell, a curling bar, and approximately 150 pounds of weight, it's a bit difficult to train properly.

I can't really squat too much weight in fear that I might be trying to lift too much and fall backwards and injur myself or break something.

It would really help if someone could give me just a full blown nutrition and training guide to follow.

I don't currently fight in any competitions, nor do I have the technique to, but I would be very interested in learning.

So if someone could help me out I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks..

If you have one foot in the past and the other in the future, all you're really doing is pissing on the present.

Here is a circuit that we do occasionally at our gym that uses NO weight but is a killer work out involving squats. The kicker is that you MUST use good form for the workout to achieve its goal.

The workout is 1 minute sets for 15-20 minutes.

*10 left lunges - back straight, no bending at the waist, right knee 1/2"-1" above floor.

*10 right lunges - back straight, no bending at the waist, left knee 1/2"-1" above floor.

*10 squats - back straight, no bending at the waist, squat til legs are at a 90+ degree angle.

Do each of these 1 after the other as fast as you can in one minute and rest the remainder of the minute. By the 9th set or so you should really be feeling the workout.

The goal of this workout is to build explosiveness and increase muscle recovery time..

Hope this is the type of stuff you're looking for.
Good Luck

Thanks a lot, I'm definitely going to incorporate this into my routine.

You absolutely have to incorporate squats and deadlifts into your workouts. Those are the only two lifts that are proven to release testoreone. Also get on the protein and if your looking for a good pre workout try Betancourt's BullNOX the stuff is viscious and you will be the only one you know taking it cuz it just got released

Everyone wants to be a fighter

If your worrying about safety with the squats you could do zercher squats, hack squats or 15-20 rep squats with a lighter weight. Can't say enough good things about the zerchers, I added weight too my squat and deadlift by incorporating it.
