Do you do all your exercises in 1 set?

Me? No, not at all. I do 10 sets back to back. So 1000 sit-ups is done in 10 sets of 100 reps. No WAY I could do 1000 sit-ups straight!

At night, Start 1-2 AM, finish 2-5 AM, Sleep @ 6AM.

If I eat before it's @ least 6 hours before, I can't W/O on a full stomach, After if I'm hungry, I'll eat .5-1lb since I can't eat more than that before bed or I have indigestion.

Savage, I'm interested in stepping up my training and I wanted to ask you something. Once you adjust to training around 9 hrs a week, do you find that you have energy the rest of the time to do other things like reading, using your brain. When I used to train a lot I was tired a lot of the time.

I've got time to train, but not to lose the rest of my time resting.

I should've been clearer, it's around 2.5-9 hours for most, sometimes it can be more than 9 hours.

You should always adapt your training towards what you want to accomplish, you must also listen to your body, if you're not recovered, then you have these three to work with: Intensity of W/O, Duration & frequency.

I like cutting back on frequency first, keep duration higher and Intensity ALWAYS the highest, the more advanced you are, the less frequency you will need, duration will change depending on your sport and intensity will always be higher.

But then again, I don't know what your goals are, list them if more than one and I can guide you towards the best way to achieve them.

About having energy to do other things, I like to use calorie cycling around my training, the highest amount of food after my W/O, gradually lowering over the days until my next training session.

Thanks Savage.

Well I'm planning now to seriously get into strength training and become very strong...so thinking once or  twice a week deadlifts +/or squats, weighted dips (I don't like bench).

I also want to become as fit as possible as I believe that's healthy..so maybe mix up some long runs and some high intensity stuff.

My main interest is in fighting skills and combat sports, so want to practise skills, do bagwork etc.

At the moment I don't train that much...just go for a jog 3-4 times a week, do some dips and jump squats and one session of combat training.

If you have any thoughts on how to increase the training and make a routine I'd appreciate them. Like I said, I have time to fit in training, but don't want to be too tired as I have work etc.

No problem, that's doable.

I'll reply to this later tonight after training via pm, unless you start a thread, let's keep this thread about posting recent workouts.

I've been doing training for CrossFit lately, its a bit different than what I've used to so I've been neglecting my regular workouts on days off.

you do all kinds of exercises and 'warmups' prior to the actual 'workout' so by then it already feels like time to go home... but here was yesterday's

it consisted of:

50 Thrusters (squats) [ with only 60-70? lbs of weight - http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/CrossFit_BBThrusters.wmv]
50 Knees to Elbows [ http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/CrossFit_Knees2Elbows.wmv]
50 Wall Ball [throwing a 14 lb medicine ball while squatting - http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/CrossFit_Wallball.wmv]
50 sit-ups (I really like the cf sit-up, they use a special pad and you go through the full range of motion with fingers touching behind you to touching the floor in front of you, in other words, not super easy]

so this in any combination and until you finish.

The K2E exercise is just insanely hard especially when you are totally out of breath. and the other exercises just sap you because you are using a great deal of exertion and motion just to move the comparative light weight. super intense....

2-I had sex twice in the 2 hours before my W/O  ;D

3- And the main reason why my W/O sucked, I did not smoke any weed like I usually do  :'(, usually I smoke 1 joint/blunt before, 1-2 during and 1 after.

I'm gonna stop all smoking till Friday (my next W/O) but keep one rolled up, if I'm feeling like today, I'll smoke it.

45 minutes ago and after 48 hour fast:

Military press: 157 X 2 X 5

Deadlift: 375lbs X 1 X 5 !!!!

Weighted Dips: 135lbs X 3 X 5 !!!!!!

Snatch: 135lbs X 2 X 5!!!

Total sets: 20 , Total time: 1hr 50mins, Rest: 4.5 mins, Reps: 1-3, Tempo Up/down: Fast as possible

I felt extremely weak and unmotivated up to 15 minutes before this W/O, but once I "woke up" (after the Military P.) I was jumping up and down between sets....the most significant improvements were the Weighted Dips, from 115lbs X 4, to 135lbs X 3, full deep reps till my toes were touching the ground and the Snatch to 135lbs X 2 from 115lbs X 2 (which was always a weak spot) with excellent form, the 375lbs deadlift felt quite easy too, but my grip was barely keeping up.

No weed since Jun 21st, 4-7 hours of sleep since then and no appetite (hence the fasting). I had no appetite thinking about beef but I bought some Pork and I'm about done with 3.5lbs, I'm only gonna eat every other day from now on and no more beef for a good while.

It's the iron content that's turning me off, I am very good at retaining iron, pigs are much lower in iron compared to the same cut of beef, If I remember correctly, at least they don't have that "beef" taste that's turning me off right now.

Also, no Circuit training tonight, still not 100% recovered and I've been VERY active in the last few days.

Yesterday, no internet access, after 30 hour fast:

Bench Press (Flat&Inc) 275lbs X 1-2 X5

Squat (Back only) 365lbs X 2 X 5

Weighted Chinups/Pullups 100lbs X 1 X 5

Clean & Jerkk 177lbs X 2 X 5

I'm being and more and more convinced that there's no reason to vary your routine (power/olympic lifting only) there are only X amount of exercises that work best and as long as remain constant you will get stronger and this will translate into improved performance in other sports/movements too.

I agree with that, those are solid compound exercises,  deads squats bench and rows will continue to improve strength, so long as you increase weight
