Re: Best SS + CF hybrid?

I am also a bit interested in training skills like the muscle-up, which I have been doing every now and then. HSPU and stuff like that is fun too, but if I want to do HSPU's I might want to do that instead of shoulder press one day I guess? So much stuff to think about..
Honestly it doesn't sound like you've accrued enough conditioning to handle "all of it". I recommend you do 3 days of SS, 2 days of 1 fight class each, and 2 days of rest, until your strength base is at a competitive level. This is generally 2xBW Deadlift, 1.5xBW Squat, BW Bench Press, BW Power Clean, and .75 BW Press. And eat like you're getting paid by the calorie.
