    Weight training for MMA

    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.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    But Anthony's answer does.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    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.
