View Full Version : Martial Artists
11-03-2005, 03:57 PM
Just joined the forum and i'm curious as to whethere there are martial artists here. If so, what do you train in.
I know this may not be the ideal topic for this area of the forum, but, I would also like to hear what other martial artists do for their workout/fitness.
Mine is more of a simple training as i've no real experience in weightlifting etc but i feel i would benefit from it if i know what would be the more ideal aspects to look at in terms of wieght lifting as a martial artist.
I'm not looking to increase my bulk, but more to fine tune it.
any tips advice is much appreciated

I doubt boxing is a martial art but Ima post anyways. I box m/w/f for atleast 2hours each session. I lift weights 3-4x/week with no routine set in stone but it's usually
Push: 6sets chest/ 3sets shoulders/ 3sets triceps
Pull: 6sets back/ 3sets rear delts/ 3sets traps/ 3sets biceps/ 3 sets forearms
(I don't do trap/forearm work if I deadlift that week)
Legs: alternate deadlift/leg press and squats/romanian deadlift
Often I have a second leg day for speed squats and mostly ab calf work

Idealy, i'd probably be looking to do some work on my legs as i mainly participate in Tae Kwon Do which is the korean Kicking martial art.
What would be a good set to do to tighten up the hip muscles?

Chris masons routine would be a good place to start for functional strength
You could also look up WBB#1 or 5x5
By the way, people who practice kicking martial arts like muay thai(spelling?) scare me. Kicking for the knees is no fair =(
I do BJJ three times a week.
I'm considering starting BJJ - should be fun
Checck out Anthony's journal. He's got a MA comp tomorrow.

HA. A-town just THINKS he can grapple lol, damn judo guys. Nah, check out Anthony's or my journal. Anthony does Judo and I'm taking BJJ.
On another note. BODY, I didn't realize you trained BJJ. How long you been taking? Stop by the journal sometime to discuss **** if ya feel like it.
being doing BJJ for about 2 years now. 1-3 times a week. mainly twice.
