I started mixed martial arts training 3 weeks ago (Mauy Thai and Brazalian Jiu Jitsu). My cardio is good since I've always run/sprinted.

What kind of weight lifting routine would you recommend? I'm thinking more powerlifting type of a routine.

Any suggestions, recommendations?

That's a loaded question.

Identify your weak areas and improve them.

Thanks, but it doesn't answer my question.

Generally, but not specifically.

i train Muay thai and BJJ aswell plus Jeet kune Do, and my advice to you is to keep doing the same thing you did BEFORE you started MMA. once you get more experienced then get your coach or whoever you train with to help you figure out your weaknesses and where you could be stronger and then rethink your training routine.

when your just starting, you really need to work on the basics (jab, blocks, hooks..etc) then you can start to link stuff together and put it all together. do some sparring at the end of every class aswell to get the feel for resistance.

so basically, get the basics first and the correct form and technique, do some sparring, figure out you workout, then fight.

You're right it doesn't help because you didn't supply enough info.:)

The easiest way to see improvments is to fix your weak links in the weightroom.

Someone else had no problem answering it.
