How does this look?

I am currently recovering from an injury, and in the planning stages for after my complete recovery. I am trying to develop a decent training schedule that works around my TKD training (I should say WITH my TKD training). Most of my TKD workouts have a combination of Technique and Endurance training. My plan is to have scheduled morning workouts 5-6 days/week, and have evening TKD workouts 2x/wk. All of my workouts would be following the recommended warmup and cooldown from Stretching Scientifically (including Isometric stretching when I am ready). This is what I am thinking about:

Monday: Technique
Abs/Back
Tuesday: Strength (Upper Body) AM
Abs/Back
Technique/Endurance TKD PM
Wednesday: Technique
Abs/Back
Thursday: Strength (Lower Body) AM
Abs/Back
Technique/Endurance TKD PM
Friday: Technique
Abs/Back
Saturday: Endurance
Abs/Back
Sunday: Off


Please give me your input.

Thanks :D ,

TKD is Tae Kwon Do. It is a Korean martial art.

Mailman:

That looks like an awful lot of work. Do you really need to do that much? I'm sure you *can* do it all but do you really *need* to?

There are a few places where it looks like you are violating the preferred sequence of technique first then strength then endurance work discussed in Science of Sports Training. Of course, since your TKD workouts are a mix of technique and endurance you are somewhat limited. It's too bad your coach doesn't leave endurance training up to you to do yourself instead of taking classtime to do it.

The day where you are planning on doing weights with the legs in the morning and TKD at night seems like it might be pretty rough. If you are lifting with any real intensity you will probably not be recovered to do justice to your TKD workout.

Are you going to cycle the intensity of any of these workouts? That is, are you going to be concentraing on weights for some months and technique in others? Again, I think if you are planning on going all-out at each workout you're going to have some trouble.

Thanks for the reply, Mark. I have backed way down on my expectations. I have recovered from my hamstring pull, but I haven't gotten back into my TKD workouts yet. I realized that I had bitten off more than I can chew right now. I need to get in better physical condition before I intensify my workout regiment. Right now I am running 3-4 days a week (about 2 miles each time) I would like to eventually at least triple my mileage, but I am in no shape to rush things. I am just taking it slow until my body (not my ego :wink: ) tells me it's time to step it up. I hope to get back to TKD in July. I think I will give myself a good six months before I add any workouts. Again, Thanks for the input. I appreciate it.
