Hi, I’m starting Judo on september 14, I did some submission wrestling, not much something like 6 mouths, but at that time (3 years ago) I was not strength training like I am right now. Anyway, I want to put strenth training on hold for a while and really focus on judo.
I’ve been doing Jim Wendler’s 531 for about 6 mounths now with great gains (bodybuiling routine before that). I was thinking about only going to the gym once a week and only keeping bench press and deadlift as my main 531 exercises plus some assistance like unilateral work and upper back work.
Has someone here trained only once a week while focusing on a martial art for a few mounths ? What was the outcome, where you able to at least maintain strength ?
