    The following is a two day split, alongside my I've embarked on for my upcoming shoot fighting match in August. Any suggestions are welcome.(Note: I'm doing a two day split to concentrate more on my striking and groundwork)

    Day 1:

    Kettle bell swings
    Hang Cleans
    Deadlift
    Front/Zercher Squat
    Kettle bell clean and press
    Hanging Leg Rises

    Day 2:
    Kettle bell swings
    Barbell Snatch
    Pullups/Lat-Pulldowns
    Back Squat
    Bent Over Rows
    Hanging Leg Rises

    Looks like you've got a lot of good exercises. Might be a bit much for only two days. Perhaps add some overhead pressing as well. Don't bother with lat pulldowns.

    The KB swings, KB clean and press, Hang cleans, and barbell snatch all focus on explosive extension of the hips and knees. There's no need to have this type of movement 5 times in 2 workouts. Maybe just the Barbell snatch, and KB clean and press.

    I think you'd be better served with something more along the lines of the 2 day split from the FAQ. Add barbell snatches, and KB clean and press, and finish with some core work.

    MAA, welcome to S&P+C. If you provide some mention of your goals, past training experience and current shape people will be able to give you better suggestions.

    My honest opinion.

    Squat
    Bench
    Deadlift

    2x per week, low volume and high intensity with long rest periods.

    I would have included some overhead pressing but when you are getting close to a fight and doing along of sparring the punching, wrestling and all that is alot on your shoulders.

    I'm not sure what you're training for.
