Just an update as I am changing stuff around, don't want to do the same thing over and over again.

I'm using the 5/3/1 program (again) with the body weight exercises. So it would go like this.

Monday:
(Bar)
Squat

(Bodyweight)
One leg squat or lunge: 5x15
Sit ups: 5x15

Tuesday:
(Bar)
Bench

(Bodyweight)
Chinups: 5x15
Pushups: 5x15

Thursday:
(Bar)
Deadlift

(Bodyweight)
GHR (Glute ham raise): 5x15
Hanging Knee Lifts: 5x15

Friday:
(Bar)
Shoulder Press

(Bodyweight)
Chinups: 5x15
Dips: 5x15

Usual martial arts training stays as is, I'll get some jogging in there too if I am not too exhausted.

Well I'm currently working off Christmas, or I will be as soon as I get over the flu my other half gave me. So this is what I'll be doing.

Up hill walking on a treadmill. I will be putting 14k in the distance and see how far I can make it each day (I can't really run at the moment as my lungs are recovering and my legs are healing though they aren't badly damaged at all, I just can't "pound the track" with them so uphill fast walking is the best option).

Twice a week I will be lifting hard and heavy on a 5x5 compound only lifts. That means squats, deads, shoulder press, chest press.

I'm also thinking of trying intermittent fasting but I'm 50/50 on the information presented so I'll give it a try and if it isn't doing anything or if it's having an adverse effect I'll stop.
