OK I've been lifting for about 2 and a half years. I have been involved in MMA for a while now and am trying to figure out a good schedule for lifting.

I train brazilian jiu jitsu, striking, and submission grappling on Mon, Wed, Fri, and Sunday.

Could I get away with doing Rippetoe's routine on Tuesday and Thursday? Its only two days a week but any more than that seems like over training. My priority isn't lifting like it originally was but I don't want to lose all of the size I gained.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

why not go monday/thursday? Thats gives you an equal amount of time (or as close to it as possible) to recover from each workout.

Mondays I am training from 530-9. I work out at school for free and the gym closes at 8. Also, there are no gyms in the area that allow chalk or deadlifting, so joining a gym is really not an option.
