There are a lot of different training regimens out there. There are three components that I found to be a successful, #1 being consistent, #2 having the right diet, #3 proper rest (8 hours). Take out one of those three components and your goals will fall short. So I would tell you about my training schedule, maybe it could help someone:

Sunday is a rest day. I wish I had one more but there is no time. I have been changing my workouts over the past few years and with super setting my weight training I have found I can still lift heavy and get my work outs done quicker too. I also switch up different exercises in my routine trying to shock my body, this is good for muscle confusion and will help keep your workouts fun too. I have also been fortunate enough to have a work out partner with the same drive I have. The biggest thing to any program is being consistent. In the gym, I always get asked what do you eat? What do you do to keep your self the way you do? People always say "I train but I can’t get muscles like that". I don’t have the heart to tell them you need to be consistent! People want to look the part and by hitting the gym once or twice a week and that is not enough. I hope this will help someone out there, thanks for reading!

I trained in Keysi for a few years before getting into proper lifting. Personally speaking I think training weights two days a week is plenty if you're a serious mma, martial artist. I was hitting the gym 4 days a week, running 6 miles x3 a week & training keysi twice a week. Talk about over training...
