    What lifting routine is best for MMA (wrestling/jiujitsu and boxing), there are so many on Sherdog S&P, and Im a newbie so I have no idea which to pick. Im looking to be stronger,bigger and faster/more explosive. If you think you know the best one for me, please link it. And Im sure this thread has been done a million times, but I DID use search and nothing useful came up.

    You didn't read the FAQ.

    Chase is trying to help. I started with a program that's almost the same as the rippetoe 5x5. Also, be sure to read the training logs (NOT statiscools.) See what other MMAs routines look like, and try to follow in their steps,

    Definitely go with teh Rippetoe starting strength.

    You can go to other routines after when your foundation has been built solid

    If you don't have experience lifting I would suggest reading the FAQ and doing one of the 2 day full body splits. Make sure to focus on training technique though, that's the most important part.

    Wtf you should be thankful chaset is even helping you since you are too lazy to run an easy search on this subject... which has been addressed countless times.

    I recommend SS. Oh wait, Starting Strength or SuperSlow? ;)

    Rippetoe's stuff is good, yes.

    FAQ is a good place to start. Strength is strength, whether you use that strength to beat someone senseless or to do farmwork...

    How you go about building that strength is tough to tell you but compound exercises with barbells is probably the single greatest way to do it, assuming you know proper exercise mechanics or put forth the effort to learn. However you should also dedicate extra time to build competency in balance, agility, speed, flexibility, as these areas are also very important for a fighter but probably should be addressed separately. Other things like sandbags, DBs, KBs, Kegs, humans (firemans carry up stairs,etc) can all be very useful in building strength.

    Chase your new identity has been uncovered and banned....perhaps next time you will be a bit more deceptive with another SN....Cha-seT? CH_SE_T?...I am only joking bro but hope you find a way back to participate on this forum, you're a strong dude and it's good to ahve you a part of this forum.

    Yes also look up the Josh Barnett thread, and theres a couple decent articles on T-Nation about the subject although read those with a critical mind some of the stuff is crap some of the stuff is good.
