jump rope and run for cardio, and otherwise do heavy lifting, you don't want to train like a bodybuilder to fight, stick to the basic (big three) lifts (squat, deadlift, bench).Originally Posted by PBX4Sho
if you want, i've come up with a pretty good routine at the bottom of this thread, post #22. no BS isolation movements in there.
I have 5 years of martial arts experience, 2 years with kenpo karate, and 3 years with tae kwon do. i would only perform exercises that work practical ranges of motion for strikes etc. that you will perform in real world situations. jump rope is great, you need to start hitting a heavy bag, with your hands knees, elbows and feet. in wrestling any extra strength is an advantage. good luck

go back to that page and look on the right side.. it has some article about martial art.
Personally i think any explosive movements would help.
Get bigger legs. I would fear a guy with big legs than big arms. I mean you take out your opponent's legs and it's over. Hell i took out my opponent's toes before. =).
