day 1
power squats
good mornings
calf raises (15- 20 reps)
one arm dumbell rows
incline dumbbell press
upright rows
bicep curls
tricep pushdowns
situps
---------------------------
day 2
stiff legged deadlifts
lunges
barbell pullovers
reverse flys
one arm cable hammer hands
one arm cable chop-pulls
dumbbell shrugs
russian twists
calf raises

4 - 6 reps , 5 sets

trying to keep it sport specific , thats why there are hammer hands and 'chop-pulls'. doing those chop-pulls kinda like a pec fly , but lying on my side on a bench and pulling from the ground up to focus on developing strength when your opponent is holding you down from inside his guard and u can only use bicep and chest strength to strike.

is there anythin iv left out , any muscle imbalances etc etc? thanks
 
I'd like to see overhead press in there. You could put them in in place of upright rows.
 
thanks bro , good idea. can i use em to replace dumbell shrugs instead? i fjkuin hate dumbell shrugs

Bro, that routine scares me and should be dropped for any number of solid routines that have been posted here. Carnal recently posted a solid routine that you can adjust based on your needs.

For a proper answer to your question, there are simply too many unanswered variables such as the following:



* Height / weight?

* Years spent lifting?

* Current knowledge level of strength training methodology?

* Sports specific goals?

* Strength goals?

* Are there other sports you train in, if so what?

* Why two days a week?

* Etc, etc..
 
* Height / weight? 5'6 , 75 kgs / 165lbs (15% bf)

* Years spent lifting? bout 5 on and off , bin out sick 4 the last 2 months

* Current knowledge level of strength training methodology? currently doin a ba in it at university

* Sports specific goals? mma. is that what ur askin?

* Strength goals? as strong as possible without goin over 170 .

* Are there other sports you train in, if so what? no. joggin 3 days , mma at least once a day 6 days a week.

* Why two days a week? gonna hit 3 days a week alternating

* diet is pretty good , plannin on takin a protein supplement.
wat else u wanna know ?

there is no way im goin to hit carnal's plan with the reps and sets he is talkin about for another month or so , i want to get myself relatively conditioned first.

2 months? Something is wrong with that picture!

Why have you been sick?

Entropy is da man. Listen up... you don't get advice of this value for free very often.
 
I know! Between CarnalSalvation and ENTROPY, I often feel like I'm stealing a seat in a GFH seminar. What's even better is that they're so different.

EDIT: Oh yeah! And, ENTROPY, I have to take issue with your preposition usage. You can't say 8 reps of 3 sets; you have to say 8 reps for 3 sets. You got some other minor usage problems, but I'll let them slide.

I think this forum should give me mod powers to correct grammar and diction. We would have the most cleanly punctuated discussion on the internet.

You HAVE some minor useage problems.

Let's not make grammar an issue.
 
That's not grammar; it's word choice. And "got" is perfectly acceptable IMHO!

I are not impressed.

Just meant we want to focus on the S&P, Hulky. Rock on.
 
Haha, I know. Really, it was just a joke. If you check that "OMG T-nation got something right!" thread, you'll see how I first got started trying to edit ENTROPY's posts.

But I'm not entirely serious about the mod thing.

Not entirely... ;)
 
thanks bro , much obliged. got acid reflux & chronic sinusitus that kept gettin misdiagnosed as throat or chest infections. fuckin gps. gonna copy paste and print that . shot!
 
I'd add a hip extension exercise to what entropy made for you.
 
Entropy said it very good. Not that complex. Very basic actually. good job!!!
