    youre going to move up a weight class. accept it, read the stickies, and start lifting.

    What do you weigh? how old are you? The long and the short of it is, if you're new to lifting, increasing your peak strength on key compound movements with heavy lifting is your best bet.

    125? lbs? how tall are you? 4'5"? SOMEBODY GET THIS MAN A SANDWICH!

    In answer to your question: heavy lifting will make you more explosive. Stick with compound movements like squats, deadlifts, rows, pullups, and overhead presses.

    Masatsu Oyama said power comes from repitition of technique. So get strong with basic compound lifts but maybe take a few days a week and drill ONE technique for two hours straight. I never saw as much progress in the explosion of my kicks as when i just threw roundkicks for 2 hours a day 5 days a week. I went from a kid who couldnt kick for shit to throwing pretty mean kicks. Now if i only had that time to train anymore...

    Don't lift until then.

    Focus on your wrestling for now.

    You ever think that maybe if you didn't keep yourself in such a malnourished state you'd have gotten taller than 5'8"?
