    How is doing one push up "working hard"??? How is squatting with 20lbs for 2 hours going to increase strength???? Its not about length of time. You can make great gains with singles or short sets if you work hard. Once again, you can work hard, and lift heavy, without utilizing poor form.

    Agree to disagree perhaps. There is plenty of info in the strength forum to cover this topic.

    strenght is good.. but the problem i see.. Is alot of guys want to get "big" then you sacrifice flexibility for mass.. and you lose techincal ability..

    Keep the weights low.. Squats, deadlifts, and Cleans with no weight.. just the bar.. are great. I pair the sets with hurdle walks, or sprints.

    Also like stated before pull ups are great. Climbing rope, dragging the sled... there are alot of different options.

    Take the movements you see in the sport of Grappling and than adapt weight training that you know to it.. The most important part of weight training is no different than BJJ.. Technique.. So have someone show you if you dont know, and dont assume your a black belt in squats because you saw it on tv once.

    The most important reason to do strength/resistance training isn't to overpower your opponent. It's to ward off injury, at least at the amateur level.

    This is a very good point. Since starting strength training I get through jiu-jitsu sessions a whole lot easier.

    does anyone know or have any idea of what is the style of escaping submissions so i can work on my technique is it sambo or bjj and when you reply could you mention any good DVDs that would have escapes in it being sambo or bjj. so when im not a club i can always be practising and studyin the moves
