    i love clean and press, snatch, 20 rep squat routine, chin ups, dips,rubber band pull to work the core in a rotational way, thick bar lifts to work the grip as well as heavy dumbell with a leg of old pair of jeans, neck bridges and a lot more.

    I love dips and squats, I hate fancy exercises like "serratus pulldowns" and the like .If I could only do two exercises it would be those two.

    I think the meat and tatties is definitely in dips, pull-ups (as opposed to chin-ups) with extended legs for the abs and squats. I place such exercises as third in my hierarchy of training under functional fitness. If time is short then these are fellas. If time is really short then its press and cleans all the way. If I have the time, space etc. unbalanced/asymetrical weights are great for working the type of resistance needed for self defence/martial arts.

    These days I also do a lot of babyweight exercises Wink C'mon! there isn't a daddy martial artist who hasn't tried it. That papous thingy might make you feel like a dorky type of marsupial, but it is wicked for weighted squats, lunges, bridges etc.

    Then there is all the resistance band work, which is great for specific training as you can train the major strikes, throws and positions using these. Mind you all this, along with triangle choke sit-ups, arm bar hip twists, sit-throughs, shrimping/snaking, low line takedown entries for the legs etc. I think go under solo specific training as does bag work, shadow work etc. which is specific training and first on my hierarchy of trianing.
