Hello guys, some advice needed

Hello mates iam 19 and i have been doing ninjutsu for a while now, and your not required to have a super fit body or anything i take it mostly as a hobbie. But lately i have been having these ideas and searching for workouts and stuff, i checked the 300, ninja assassin workouts (i know they trained for huge amounts of time each day).
I was wandering if theres anyone with experience on martials arts workouts here, i am mostly interested in a lean body with high defenition, but quickness and strength above all( i train at home with dumbells, fitball, got a bench chair and alot of space).

Any tips/comments appreciated

I really dont know if real ninjas were out in their gardens doing thrusters, pullups and deadlifts.

Met-con with some strength training mixed in might do the trick for you.

Re: Hello guys, some advice needed

Umm . . . do CrossFit?

You can check out the CrossPit area of this message board (dedicated to fighting and martial arts) but my quick thoughts are the following:

1) CrossFit without much pure strength work integrated can certainly make you lean and ripped.

2) CrossFit as general physical preparedness will both improve your ability at your martial art as well as build up a conditioning base to allow you to practice your martial art for longer periods of time. It may also build your mental toughness.

3) CrossFit will highlight your weaknesses and give you numeric data from which to assess your goals and training plan in the future

4) Speed will be primarily neurological. If you want that, you have to earn it through effective practice.

5) CrossFit will NOT be ideal for whatever it is that you want, but it's really good so predictably (it's the CF message boards, what do you expect?) I say give it a shot!
