Completely unecessary introduction. (Scroll down to The issues if you value your time) So I'm finally able to live my childhood's martial art dream. I have found a gym that offers Kyokushin and Thaiboxing. In the aspect of Kyokushin the gym is -very- merited, its fighters having won many medals both in europe and japan. The thaiboxing is mostly offered as a complement, with a dutch thaiboxer as the main instructor. As an old Shotokankai I find the Kyokushin training to be top quality while I lack the expertise to comment upon the Thaiboxing, but the trainer seems to know what he is doing and will only focus on basics for atleast half a year. Which is completely fine by me. Outside classes you have access to the gym for bagwork/solotraining and general workouts from 09:00-21:00 which I suppose is real good. Especially that this is Sweden and I pay only ~40$ per month for all this. (For those interested, one can participate in the fight-team classes during the day for the competitive fighters. Running/pad/mitwork each day for two hours) My Schedule This is the current schedule that I have been following for the last few weeks. Monday: 19:00-20:00 Kyokushin training. (A mixed bag depending on the trainers. it might be fighting techniques, sparring or even traditional basic training.) Tuesday: 19:00-20:00 Kyokushin Kata. (Very light training since it's just forms) 20:00-21:00 Thaiboxing (Thaiboxing, Very basic, with some pad/mitswork Wednesday: 18:00-19:00 Kyokushin Fighting. (Contact sparring for one hour in 3-5 minutes rounds. Not -too- physically demanding but you get very, very bruised. I always limp after all the legkicks) Thursday: 18:30-20:00 Kyokushin training. (30 minutes of basics as warmup and then one hour of fight techniques and sparring drills) 20:00-21:00 Thaiboxing. (Same as Thuesday) Friday: I'm resting. Saturday: 12:00-13:30 Kyokushin Fighting. (One hour of rounds of Padwork/going all out against partners with bodyshields. Half an hour of sparring) Sunday: 15:00-16:30 Thaiboxing. (Same as usual but with dedicated warmups and stretches) The Issue The gym is being renovated and they have promised me a squat-rack and a barbell. But right now they just have a room full of machines, a pull-up bar, Dumbells up to 25Kg. So I will have to do with gear and calisthenics. For someone who has followed Starting Strenght and the texas method of a year (Max was just 130 Kg Squat at 85 kilo bodyweight) this is a completely mental fuckup and this is where I need help! I haven't strenght trained in over a month and the last time I squatted I just did 100kg. So I'm officially weak as a pussy again, but that's alright. I'm down at 75 kilos, so it's ten kilos less fat and muscles from the 85 kilo Bodyweight of 130 Kilo Squat. Which also is sad but I was still a beginner. I'm aware that I won't be able to do anything similiar to Starting Strenght and the texas method even if I had a barbell but I was thinking of doing the 2-Day split from the Faq but with some nessesary modifications. This is where I need help This is what I have thought of: - Two day split: Day one: Dumbell Overhead Press Weighted pullup/chinup Day two: Flat press (With Dumbells) Bent over row (With Dumbells) That should solve the pressing and pulling. But how the fuck do I substitute the squatting and deadlifting? I have thought of goodmornings with hanging dumbells, overhead dumbell squats, stepups, pistols and bulgarian squats but I don't know how to implement these. I'm also open to the idea of just strenght training once per week. Perhaps I should just buy a book from Rosstraining xD Edit: As far as cardio I'm struggling to just survive the training as it is.
