Starting From Scratch

Postby LPH » Nov 18, 2009 18:23

I am starting from scratch because I think I am doing it wrong. This is core routine I usually doing right now and I want to know what I could add in between these day. What I do everyday is accurately like on the routine. I go to TKD school 4 days a week. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. As, for the running is it too much? Cross Country ended just like 2-2.5 weeks ago and now I am following this routine because I wasn't the best at cross country and my stamina seem so bad (Like near the bottom of varsity team in my school). At the moment I am on Week 2 Wednesday. I don't think it may be too much for me because it is my own body and I feel fine. My goals are to get my stamina very high like those cross country people, be good at sparring and having good techniques for kicks, and least but most importantly split.

Saturday is like a mix day of everything it is one those "random" day but mostly on techniques

Things I need to know what to do on specific days
1. Isometric Stretching (3 sets of 30 seconds hold, right?)
2. What to do on Saturday
3. What are some strength exercises I should do to help with split
4. Before doing isometric stretching should I just focus on 100 reps abductor flies and hold horse stance for a long duration of time?
5. Any other additional tips you can add (If you want more details on what I do please type so I can answer)

Thank You.

I see lots of running and TKD but no strength training.
For your question no. 1: read Stretching Scientifically.
For your question no. 2: If I did what you're doing, I'd be dead by Saturday.
For your question no. 3: In general, read Article 19 on this site: http://www.stadion.com/column_stretch19.html
For your question no. 4: See Secrets of Stretching DVD for recommended progression.
For your question no. 5: read the other articles on this site. What have you read so far?
