Okay I finally finished undergrad work so now I will be training bjj/mma 5-6 days a week. With school is was more like 3-5 depending on the week/workload while working full-time. With this schedule I had more time for lifting since I lifted on school days and I am lucky enough to have my own place with a garage and my own weights. I will not be doing any graduate work for at least a year so my focus will be on bjj/mma. My workouts during the last 3 or so years have been the big 3 and the variants in a 54321 scheme. I like this scheme, but with 5-6 mma workouts this comes to about 1 workout a week. I also cycle the workouts in a 3 day sequence. As the weights inevitably get heavier the workouts take longer and they become more dreaded. I am thinking about creating a routine doing days of 3lifts of 3sets for 3 reps, or 2lifts for 5x5 or 5,4,3,2,1. This will basicly cut my workouts in half which should enable me to lift at least 3 times per week. I also believe my workouts will be more palatable for lifting before or after bjj/mma. I guess this is similair to Pavel's Power To The People, but I think rotating lifts each workout (westside) will be more productive while keeping my mind and body fresh. Has anyone tried lifting in this abbreviated manner while combining mma? Any advice or ideas are welcome. Sorry for the length, but I believe it is important to be thorough on questions such as these. Oh and the goal as always is STRENGTH! I will keep the sport specific stuff confined to the mat/ring.
