    From that perspective, you make sense

      very few people can recover from squats 3 times a week effective AND do other training unless they are beginners and still getting beginner gains, once or twice is enough.

      20 reppers for martial arts.

        And Ghost's 20 reppers aren't done with a weight that you do 20 reps with, try 8-10....

          The bag was made of concrete. When Rocky finished going 5 rounds; it was made of powder

            I will agree. The mid-week workout should be just 2 sets of 12 with maybe 80% of your max. Of course you do a set of Leg Curls, and calf raises, etc.

            eg squats: 2 x 10, 5 x 3-5, 1 x 20 to finish. Insert leg curls so you can regain your wind. Total time for leg workout < 15 minutes

              I think you misunderstand what I mean.

              He takes a weight that he can only do 8-10 reps with. Pauses in the up position with that weight after doing 8-10 reps, tired etc.....then keeps doing more reps until he's reached 20.

              Forcing his legs to do alot more work than they are used to.

                  and final modification of this method - pause after every single rep!
                  1-2 sec.

                    Push off with the feet, whip your hips into the direction of the punch and snap it with the lats and triceps. About 2/3 of your power comes from leg, hip action.

                          Tips to get a stronger punch
                          * Take a push-up position and thrust yourself up. Now, clap you hands and return to the start. Repeat. This handclap push-up will help you to build strength of your hands and improve your hand speed. Start by doing at least three sets of 10 repetitions and then slowly increase.
                          * In order to improve your arm strength, you can also try training with a bungee cord. Drape the bungee cord around your shoulders. Now, holding each handle of the cord, fling a variety of punches. Do this drill for 10 minutes everyday.

                            That is an ab training guide. There is one excersize listed there called Full-Contact Twists (Punch like a mule). As their alternate title for it suggests, it should help your punching power.
