Training Program

Anyone have any suggestions on a workout plan for a beginner martial artist (only about three years experience) thats no overly time consumming or reliant on a lot of equipment. I'd like to start suplimenting my In-School training to starting honing in on things like endurance, power, and combinations. During the week my time is limited, maybe only an hour-hour and half on days I'm not at the Gym. Weekends are much more free, but I still would prefer to take it slow and keep the time down to start. Any help would be much apreciated.

I must say I don't understand why people keep posting general messages like this. Is it that people have already read the material available, but don't know how to put it into practice? Or is it that they can't be bothered doing the reading and are wanting it explained again? Everything that could be said has all been said either in Mr Kurz books, or in his column.

Check it out. It is all there!

That's exactly what it is, not quite sure how to put it all together. I've read a bunch of information online along with a few books I own, but it all seems a bit overwhelming. I'm looking for a general workout that I can modify as I progress and be come more comfortable with everything.

start by re-reading articles 12 -23 at
http://www.stadion.com/column.html
Then take a piece of paper with the days of the week on it. first note which days you should be doing speed, endurance, strength or resting.

Once you have worked out the purpose of your training each day, list down the exercises you will be doing on those days, then order them according to Mr Kurz recommendations (its all in the articles). Don't forget to factor in what days you attend your martial arts classes or any other sporting activities as this will affect your planning.

Personally I have worked out a morning session (warm up with early morning stretch)
and then I train in the evenings.

It is important you sit down and put thought into your training. If you understand what you are doing and why you are doing it, you will reap greater rewards. Listen to your body and progress as your ability grows- don't push yourself too far too soon - train rationally. One of the good things about Mr Kurz material is that he doesn't go for the general workout (one size fits all) he teaches you to fish, rather than simply giving you a fish so to speak.

The amount of effort you put into your own planning will pay off in the rewards you reap!

All the best
