Hey guys. Have a situation on my hands. One of my bosses at work studies martial arts ... has a belt qualifying event in about 2 weeks. Came to me (since I am a big guy who's "into working out") and asks me for some advice. He works out already, not very educated or well planned routines though (basically like every routine your average joe does). I know nothing about martial arts, the movements involved, or training that can optimize performance in this category.
He says that he wants a routine that can give him the most "bang for his buck" since he doesn't have a lot of time. I figure that it is like any other sport and multi-joint, explosive movements would be the way to go. Any martial arts guys out there? Do you know any performance specific exercises ... or any routines that you found to help you? Thanks for any help.
