I'm going back to weights and i need strength. I just want to open this up to three lifts. I'm thinking dead lift, over head push press and bent over dumbbell rows. (i believe that the stronger my stopping strength, the more i row... the stronger my body will allow my punching strength to grow) If the body doesn't have faith it can stop the acceleration of a punch motion it will resist power growth to prevent becoming so strong it can injure it self. Dead lift for the over all body benefit, and the ability to handle the weight of a guy much bigger then me in a clinch.
