    Personally, I have lifted weights on and off for years. I am 49 years old, but over the last few years, everytime I start on weights again, I end up mostly ditching them for bodyweight exercises.

  2. You can probably find what you need online...

    Most of these workouts are boot camp type, calisthenics based. For example, week 1, sets of pushups, situps, pull ups, then a run. You then increase your sets each week. Something to this effect.
  3. Remember,

    historically, boxers didn't lift weights at all! So, if it comes down to developing a more powerful punch, obviously, the secret is not pure strength.
  4. You bring up some good points...

    The gloves worn in MMA provide a protection factor that you would not have were you to use actual bare hands. In other words, if you threw some of those haymakers without very well wrapped hands,...

    I took BJJ for 4 years. What you will find in the beginning, is that you will try to out muscle people, but people that are in less shape than you will still be able to dominate you, due to...

    Enamait deadlifted almost 500 pounds at a weight of 170 lbs., and he does bodyweight workouts exclusively? Does he deadlift at all, or squat, or did he ever? Otherwise, I am quite amazed!!

    First day in prison - my observations

    The majority of the guards are not in the best of shape. In this institution, if a guy wants to work out 10 hours a day, he can.
    What is worse is that there is no workout facility for the staff,...

    First day in prison - my observations

    Hi,

    The title could be a little misleading. I started employment yesterday as a corrections officer. I've always been a little fascinated about the world behind bars. When we took our first...
  9. Is there any chest exercise that isn't potentially bad for the rotator cuffs?

    I like hindu pushups a lot, but recently they have really caused my shoulders to hurt. In the meantime, I have been looking for a decent chest exercise (yes, sometimes I target the pecs). However,...

    I'd like to know that myself......

    I had been doing hindu pushups every other day, not that high of volume, maybe 5 sets of 10. I love them, but within a couple of weeks, my rear shoulders (rotator cuffs, it seems) were killing me. ...

    kipping pull-ups (chins) questions

  13. Running is hard on the joints.....but aren't kettlebells also?

  14. question re: Heavyhands and Shoulder endurance

    Thanks for the advice. I wish I could find a long hill outdoors, since the weather is nice, but I might have to treadmill on incline some, which I know can be very effective.
  15. question re: Heavyhands and Shoulder endurance

    I've been doing what I assumed was the basic premise, walking with "bent" knees, and swing arms to overhead each step.
    Running with them sounds difficult!
  16. question re: Heavyhands and Shoulder endurance

    Thanks for the input!
    I can see by re-reading my message that it could be a little unclear.
    My primary purpose for utilizing heavyhands is for cardiovascular benefits. I want to use it for...
  17. question re: Heavyhands and Shoulder endurance

    Hi,

    I have recently thought about incorporating some heavyhands into my workouts. I would like to give my joints a break, primarily from running and heavier lifting.

    I fully agree

    Technique without great condition, or vice versa, will not serve you too well nowadays. Good fighters obviously have a great deal of both.

    However, regardless of all the bashing running gets, do the majority of higher level fighters such as boxers, mma, etc. run? Yes! So can...
