Ok guys, first off, how y'all doing? I want to start this thread friendly just in case I get flamed. So, recently, I decided to start practicing jiu jitsu again. The new place I am going to be practicing at has sessions Monday through Thursday. I want to continue strength training in addition to these practices. Previously, I had used just the basic three day template found in the FAQ, and had dabbled in BFS. Now, I think I should switch off to 2 days a week, allowing myself to recover on Sunday. My question is: can the two day split in the FAQ be back to back? I want to really push myself in the weight room and increase my strength and maybe put on a few pounds of lean mass. So, basically, would this work? I am nervous about overtraining as well: Su-REST M- BJJ T - BJJ W- BJJ R- BJJ F - Deadlift 5X5 OHP 5x5 Pullups Neck strengthening (bridges, etc.) & Weighted abdominal work cardiovascular conditiong Sa - Clean 5 x 1 Squat 5 x 5 Bench - 5x5 BOR - 5x5 maybe some extra shrugs, and extra cardio, and grip work Additionally questions: - Has anybody out there run a similar schedule? If so, how did you structure your diet? How did your body react? - How do you pick what weight to use on a 5x5 program? Is there some sort of percentage you choose each time? STATS, to help answer questions: - 6'3", 190 lbs, fairly lean - Maxes: Squat 315, Bench 215, Dead 385, Clean 195 - Pretty good recovery time Thanks in advance for any information that can be provided. I will start a log soon if I figure out a good schedule. I want to run this through at least August.
