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.
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.
