I seriously need

strength!
I am doing jiu jitsu and have done it for 2 months and im absolutely loving it.
However the problem is that i am not as strong as many of the other I train with.

I am 18 years old and I only weigh 145 pounds and many of the guys i train with weigh 180 pounds+... So do you have any advice on what exercises to do in order to achieve more strength?

If you're smaller than your training partners, then I will encourage you to train to refine your technique over amassing physical strength. I'm not saying to stay away from gym outside of rolling on the mat, but let's be realistic: You could be a champion power lifter and if you're barely 2 months into Jiu-Jitsu training, I'd bet dollars to doughnuts that you'd get taken to school and tapped.

On that thought, concentrate on technique and cardio instead. Even the strong guys wilt when they run out of gas.

In jiu-jitsu you should be focussing alot on your core strangth. I suggest doing alot of pushups and situps. I actually train abdominal and leg strength by traingle-choking a heavy bag. I even triangle a pillow when I'm bored or watching TV. If you do this regularly your abs will start to feel alot stronger.

Doing the pushups will build pectoral strength and eventually make it easier to control your opponent while in guard (on either side) or in mount.

My real focus would be on technique. Jiu-jitsu is a small man's martial art and if you are doing it right you should be able to control a much larger opponent without doing very much physical conditioning.

If your training for competition and you plan on fighting around 145, I say it's good to roll with stronger guy's. I train with a much stronger partner in ju jitsu and it makes me feel much more comfartable going into a fight knowing my opponent most likeky could'nt "over power" my training partner. But that's just the power aspect, not the technique.

two types of strength
weight lifting strength
and fighting strength
work out with the weigths but the fighting stregnth will quickly improve...plus technique beats power

get a stability ball and focus on your abs and lower back. that alone will help you by, as mentioned above, strengthening your core. alot of BJJ requires movements at the waist, such as turning the hips to set up subs and sweeps. Jeff Monson uses a Stability ball and he says its helped him immensely.

I recommend sticking to the basics.

Compound movements + Heavy Weights + Food = strength gains.

There is as much technique involved in lifting as in BJJ.
