Ive been at this for only a few years (4 going on 5). I train in kickboxing and straight boxing 90% of the time and spice it up with mma and bjj when i get bored and need a little motivation. What i wanted to talk about with this thread was that i keep my workouts very simple and follow some basic rules that i find work for me. Monday, Wednesday, Friday i do a heavy full body workout lifting the most i can for 6-8 reps never repeating the same excercise. Granted i do work the same muscle groups just different excercises. I do this with no rest and for a full hour. Pushing the reps out with as much speed and control that i can muster. This is a workout plan losely modeled on one from Mark Hatmaker. Where he works out for 30 minutes with a dumbell. My workout incorperates some of his routine with some basics (bicep curls, bench press ect) added on. My logic is im trying to replicate a fighting situation. We spar on friday nights for an hour and a half and i want to be able to go though the whole thing at full speed all out balls to the wall. My question is, will this help with my goal of trying to go all out on friday nights sparing or should i be changing things?
