I am currently lifting 3 days a week inbetween my MMA/Kickboxing practices. MMA is 2 hours on Tues, Fri and Saturday.
I have been lifting on my own program designed as sort of a post rehab kind of thing, doing the 8 weeks to Monster shoulders program, along with a lot of pulling and work tagetting my VMO. Before that I was in rehab for tendonitis in my left shoulder (ext. rotator) and a hyperextended kneed from a Knee bar.
Now that my shoulders and knee feel 100% (though I would still like to correct my imbalances and improve shoulder ROM. more on that later) it seems a maximum strength and hypertrophy program is in order.
SO, would I be crazy to pick a pulling exercise like bent-over rows as my ME upper body movement? I really want to try and limit pressing to at least equal emphasis in my program.
I will post again with my planned schedule.
Thanks for reading my novel,
