    What is your basic workout regimine, and if you have one, what is your diet like?

    for me my workout is
    100 push ups every other day, changing style every ten reps
    200 sit ups every other day
    10 supermans a day
    10 pull ups a day
    20 minutes of practice with my main weapons per week
    30 minutes of jumping practice a week
    15 minutes of shadowboxing per day

    and while I have no main diet, I make sure to ingest a lot of chicken protein and noodles for energy

    Erm...I just eat lots, and I burn it off pretty quickly, so I actualyl ahve to eat loads. I naturally don't like eating much chocolates or sweets, so my diet is genereally healthy.

    I do 5 sets of 5 reps of 14kg dumbbells every other day.
    20 pushups on my knuckles everyday
    20 clap push ups everyday
    40 sit ups everday
    90 seconds of sitting in a toilet seat position (thighs 90 to shins) everyday

    and that's about it...I also get a lot of running in, since I paly lots of football/soccerl at school

    Just changed my training...well not just...few months ago, since my dad back and he's allowing me to use the mini gym in t3h shed =]

    Every other day:

    Bench Press - 3 sets of 10 reps - 40kg (safety...since I work by myself, and if too heavy..well you know)
    Bicep Curls - 3 sets of 10 reps - 15kg
    Wrist curl - 2 sets of 20 reps - 15 kg
    Tricep thing behind my back lifting up - 3 sets of 10 reps - 10kg
    Sit ups - 2 sets of 20 reps (purely for turning purpose only)

    The in between days:
    Leg Curls (Hamstring? - back of thighs) - 3 sets of 12 reps - 55kg
    Leg Curls (Quads? - front of thighs) - 3 sets of 12 reps - 55kg
    Calfs - 3 sets of 10 reps - 60kg

    The calf on is done by putting th weights using the bar across shoulders and tip toeing up and down.

    Don't want to sound braggish. But it's working...I'm getting bigger (thank god finally), and Ifind I can lift heavier weights. Plus...it's working on the toning aswell (few more months till full blown chick magnet XD)

    Yeah I've gotten lazy, I need to start doing super-mans and pull ups again to keep my pecs in shape, I've been doing more kicks lately to keep my abs strong, but I need to work on my arms more and lower abs. But currently my workout looks something like this:

    Jack friggin squat

    Hopefully I'll get the determination to start the old one with some arm stuff soon

    The good news is I've learned a lot of new tricks since I was regularly training so not all of the time I've been not working out hasn't been wasted

    Supermans are just another name for handstand push ups. Number of fingers depends on the day, sometimes I use 'em all, other times I use six.

    Is it a free handstand push up, or are you up against the wall?

    I'd don't have the balance/practice to even do a handstand lol

    Update, I've now confirmed that I can do push ups on just my thumbs and index fingers, although it's among the hardest tings I've ever done.

    I've found a new way to do a push up (mainly due to a knew way in which one can punch). If you wish to punch with your middle finger poking out (it hurts when the other guy has a fist, and it applies a more concentrated pressure), you can do push ups on interlocked fingers.

    Basically you interlock your fingers as you might in a prayers, and then do a push up on the back of those fingers (I will try and produce a pic). It's a lot harder than normal push ups, and it hardens the fingers.

    I got this from a program I was watching called "Mind, Body, and Kick Ass Moves" in which that episode they had gone to the Philippines I believe and were documenting one of the Escrima group. These guys are old, but they're seriously hardcore. The main guy who's head of this eight-man strong group called Black Eagle Escrima was 88, and he was still scary.

    That's true of a lot of southeast asian fighters, because for them it's still a serious matter of survival. like most of the guys in thailand who train in Muay Thai, those guys are monsters.

    It's good to see fighters who actually "fight" rather than all this organised stuff. I mean...it's not good that they have to fight for their lives and what not, but in the sense that what they do isn't debased to a commercial level.
