    *these are the moves i use. they can be changed to suit personal preference (STICK TO COMPOUNDS)*

    As for cardio
    Tuesday and Friday
    Fighting Practise 30 mins (using bags or pads)

    Example of Practise for BOXING:
    3 mins of Quick Jabs and Strikes
    1 min rest
    3 mins of Heavy Strikes
    1 min rest
    3 min freestyle combo's
    Repeat as many times as possible and push it!

    Followed by 30 min jog

    Wednesday and Saturday
    Fighting Practise 45 mins

    Example for Martial Artists
    Loosen Up by moving through the combinations of your prefered style (Karate = Kata)
    30 second rest
    3 mins Quick strikes on bag
    1 min rest
    3 mins of heavier strikes
    1 min rest
    3 mins freestyle combo's
    Repeat as many times as possible and push it!

    Followed by 100-200M Sprints

    Most people would be traning in proper classes so the day of that class would account for
    the cardio day on this routine. This routine I'm using to really focus on increased fitness levels.

    Just write what you think and i'll keep changing it till i get it right.

    Ok, then we need to modify your workout routine. Your reps are too low. You are right now lifting in the hypertrophy range. Decrease your weight and increase your reps to between 15-20 per set.

    i'm gonna reduce the reps and go for strength when my body develops a bit more.

    High reps makes it feel like such a long routine!

    Did it for a while last year and it just dragged out.

    Concentrate on the purpose mate. If you don't build endurance your opponent will outlast you. Its my entire strategy in the ring and its been VERY successful over the years. Just my advice.

    Makes total sense I figured as much. Would the cardio not help the endurance? Or does the muscular endurance really help?

    Unfortunately they are completely different animals. You need cardio endurance built from doing interval training and you need muscular endurance. Cardio builds the heart and lungs to provide adequate oxygen supply to sustain work over time. Muscular endurance increases lactic acid tolerance and glycogen storage so your muscles can do work over extended periods before tiring. You need both and one does not build the other.

    A boxer needs speed correct but it isnt vital george forman when he made his comeback was one slow ass fatty but could still bang harder than most the heavyweights why?? cos he could throw a punch not because he jumped on a box

    and im doing my boxing coaching badges now and i havnt been told to get people to jump on boxes to gain strength

    If I may I would include some more plyometrics i.e: box pushups, jump squats, box jumps, etc. This will not only increase vo2 max but also explosive power.

    I agree with plyometrics.
    Especially when a martial art is your goal.
    You need to be EXPLOSIVE, strong and fast.

    NOT slow and strong.

    And for what goes, i have been practicting wide in Martial arts through the years, and notning solves the case more than an explosive kick, to the the neck or knee
