Hi, I was wanting to see if anyone had any suggestions for how i should balance my workouts. I used to wrestle and box, but i had to take a break in order to raise my GPA. Im going to return to my martial arts, but i know that in order to excel, i need to become more fit. I started researching methods of workouts, but became overwhelmed with all of the possibilities. I know i need to improve my explosion(Plyometric), my strength, my endurance, and my cardio. It seems like a lot, and i dont know how to go about balancing it and getting good results.

This may sound simplistic and even too low-key for the more aggressively fit posters, but you may want to resume with a modest program of calesthetics, including the traditional body-weight push ups, situps, squats, and "trunk twisters" with running/jogging.  It depends on exactly how much more physical condition "deteriorated" during your chair-bound study break.

 

5x5 Stronglifts, and they aren't time consuming

I'd start by asking your coach or whoever's most experienced at your martial arts programs, since it seems like your fitness goals relate to martial arts.

If you just want to be very healthy, ask your doctor what that would be, or look up the standards from the American Heart Association and Centers for Disease Control.

As to what strength, endurance, or cardio exercise to do, just pick some things. Overall health comes from changing things up, so don't worry about finding "the perfect workout." Just start working out, and continually push yourself to work out differently, harder, stronger, and longer.

Jim Wendlers 531 "triumvent" is a great workout to increase strength and endurance.  I would highly suggest trying it for a cycle or two.  Make sure you eat plenty of complex carbs and a lot of protein.  If you enjoy fast foods, I would try to go 30 days without it and see how you feel after those thirty days.  Also, if you drink a lot of energy drinks and soda try drinking a lot more water.  It will make you feel better and you could actually see some results.

Prayers and Ideas for struggling men.

I know this isn't your typical theological question, but I feel it can be helpful. I personally need some prayer. I am struggling with guidance. I seem go be having some relationship trouble. I firmly believe God put this woman in my life to be wife one day (when funds and scheduling allow), but I keep picking fights about stupid things. I would like some prayer for guidance and how I should act. Thanks guys. I hope this thread ends up being a way for all of us guys to ask for some prayers.
