    As I have aged I have changed my goals when it comes to conditioning and exercise. I was of the "lift bit, eat big to get big" philosophy and while I did improve my strength and did gain some size I also gained a lot of fat. Lifting heavy also was bothering my back, knees and shoulders.

    My lifting routine now is a full body circuit consisting of push/pull exercises.

    That being said:

    Monday - 60 minutes of Muay Thai followed by 60 minutes of Brazillian Jiu Jitsu

    Tuesday - 60 minutes Muay Thai/Full body circuit.

    Wed - 60 minutes Jiu Jitsu

    Thur - 60 minutes Muay Thai/Full body circuit.

    Fri - Date night with wife or 60 minutes Jiu Jitsu

    Sat - Muay Thai/open mat (could be Jiu Jitsu could be Muay Thai

    Sun- Full Body circuit.

    I also train Jiu Jitsu in Hyannis at the Daniel Gracie school.

    https://www.facebook.com/danielgraciecapecod

    All this MMA training was really my mid-life crisis. I just wanted to try something different from the usual weight lifting and hour a day on the elliptical. I'm actually in the best shape of my life (at 50) and since spring when I went Primal I am more vascular than ever with a six pack.

    I highly recommend some form of kickboxing for training if you want to get into shape. Look at the UFC fighters...they are some of the best conditioned athletes in the world. (Don't google Roy Nelson...he's an exception)

    And ladies...knowing self defense doesn't hurt either.

    Bodyweight only for several months now.

    I have been using the Madbarz.com routines, which I think are great.

    Monday - Lots of pullups, chinups, inverted rows for back and biceps.

    Wednesday - Leg workout, single leg squats, jump squats, box jumps, lunges, calf work

    Friday - For chest, shoulders and triceps, rounds of various styles of pushups and dips.

    I do the same, but never recommend cardio "kickboxing", you should have a live opponent at some point.

    I will do cardio classes for, well, cardio but also take the MMA/ Muay Thai classes in which we spar. I'm no match for these kids half my age but I do make them work.

    I notice you're from Lawrence...you ever make it down to Sityodtong to train?

    I've never been, but been thinking of cross-training at some point. Where I take Krav Maga, my instructor holds belts in multiple styles of MA, so the quality of instruction I get is quite good. We spar both stand up and ground, with people of all shapes and sizes. Tuesday and thursday night classes usually end with some sort of sparring, and I also go to the Friday fight class.

    Not trying to start an argument, but this doesn't necessarily follow logically.

    I know what your saying, but a lot of Krav instructors are just that, Krav instructors and add nothing else.

    Example: When we do ground work, my instructor having BJJ experience can add "watch out for this/that" instead of just showing us the defense/move, and leaving it at that.

    Same for clinch work, we learn knees/elbows and such, but also "dirty boxing" using shoulders and biceps to strike and make space that isn't specifically in Krav maga.
