Hey everyone, I already posted this in the sports section but it seems like not many people were interested in posting. Hopefully I can get a little more help here. I got one helpful comment over there but I'd still like to see a little more feedback.
So I've reached a moment of real frustration when it comes to my fitness goals. I've tried lifting weights before and I've never really went through with it. I've seen lots of improvement every time I've done it and I thought it helped my physique. Unfortunately, I never got any thrill from doing it and I found it quite boring. I've been told I'm just doing it wrong and that I didn't have my priorities straight in the gym, and that's probably true.
I'd like to get a personal trainer but I can't afford that, I also have no idea how to do many of the lifts that would help my jiu jitsu such as power cleans and any other Olympic lifts. I'm 5'10 165 pounds and I'm trying to get into lifting again for two reasons, the first is to boost my jiu jitsu game because I've found that I'm a lot weaker than many people in my weight class and I'd just like to become more athletic in general, and the second reason is the obvious, I want to get in great shape.
My workout currently looks like this (no lifting at all):
Monday: I do Muay Thai for one hour.
Tuesday: I do Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for two hours.
Wednesday: Muay Thai 1 hour.
Thursday: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for two hours
Friday: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for two hours
Saturday: Muay thai for one hour followed by jiu jitsu for two.
Sunday: I take a run for 30-40 minutes or I go indoor rock climbing.
I clearly have room to train more and I'd like to add around 3 weightlifting sessions a week to help me achieve my goals. Any proposed routines are much appreciated!
Anyway, I'd like something a little more specific like:-
Day 1 chest/back (or w/e):-
Bench press 3x10
Decline dumbell press 3x10
Some more info: I'll be doing lifting one day on and one day off and I'll try to do it the same day I would do my muay thai practice since I have a reasonable gap between my classes.
Edit:One more thing... I don't have access to tires and anything of that sort, I'll probably be doing most of my lifting routines at your typical gym. (benches/machines and anything else that usually comes with them).
This is just the combination of my posts in my other thread. Thanks in advance.
