you wouldn’t agree with it cause your a big strong dude who happens to roll and spar a little.
but that’s cool every one is different. its cool and I bet we could learn about getting bigger or stronger more readily from someone like you.
when your rolling or what ever with beginners its easy to out muscle people move on to more serious partners and competing with people with Years of ability- strength is less of a factor
Its about getting strong where it counts- and how to apply that strength.
and how to apply it the entire match.
strong where it counts- Im not suggesting training with db’s to mock strikes or bullshit like that
Im just speaking from my experience playing judo and wrestling - with the big kids-post college.
It never mattered what people I played against lifted, I was stronger where it counts.
write your name after a heavy set of deads…
try it after rolling hard for say 9 minutes.
not so easy, .
now you might be an anomoly Mac- your a big dude that also seems to do a shit ton of running
that being said weights have a purpose- in your training
you wanted to get bigger stronger, just make that a priority as long as
your recovery isnt too impaired for the muaythai…
bah, i only meant that beershoes is fairly young (i think?), and i don’t see any negative as to why he can’t focus his time in the gym this summer to get big and strong AS WELL as continue to improve his his muay thai.
agree that the people who roll with you in the ring/mat rarely give a shit what you lift.
still feel that superior conditioning will trump perfect technique or great strength almost every time.
although i’m going to have to disagree with the deadlift/rolling. rolling for 9 straight min? i’d be puking all over the place, if i even made it that far.
however i’ve been known to go sit in the corner and cry about it for a few min after completing a deadlift or squat workout. it’s just different ways of getting there.
lol @ ‘training with db’s to mimic strikes’
edit** in anycase, OP’s last line was that he wants to gain ‘strength,power and a little extra mass.’
if that’s the case, i’d just suggest doing what works (standard bodybuilder-type split) and make sure you party hard in the kitchen to help recovery from the weights and muay thai
