    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.

    1) run some stairs 2) run a hill 3) go for a swim. 4) roll until you hate it...that is my advice for getting back into training.

    All good picks. Personally, though, I would add more variety. No need for rows if ur deadlifting(no functional benifit comes from row u cant get from dl). I would probly go with clean and press, deadlift, and squat. Or snatch, power clean, and front squat. Basically, just pick three multi-joint, free-weight moves that bring as many muscles into play as possible and move heavier amounts of weight.

    Deadlifts and squats should almost always be in any routine.

    But why only 3 lifts?
