If my math is right your like 158-159 pounds. Your height at 155 would be a great advantage even if you aren't the best striker. Also you wouldn't have to worry about cutting to much weight. I will try and get one of the strenght guru's in here to help you with strength workouts.

Alright I will see if I can get a mod to move this thread to the training section where more of our strength guys will see it. It may be tomorrow when you get an answer but trust me, they will help you out greatly.

That would be great if they can i didnt know where to put this thread lol quick qestion tho any tips on the best pain rellef my friend put me in an arm bar and it went wrong

Ice and heat and keep it as still as possible.

I will try and help you out until a mod gets online and they can move the thread. I have played soccer since I was 4 and have done some type of combat sports since I was six and I haven't been lifting weights that much. I have but most of the excercises that my coaches/trainers have had me do were more bodyweight excercises like, pushups, pullups, carrying another fighter, some crazy stuff like that. It seems to be more of a functional type of strength instead of raw strength. I also shadow box with weights to get my arm conditioned to throwing a lot of punches, just stuff like that. But the other guys will be able to help you.

ice and heat why didnt i think of that..
i used to play rugby at school when i was 15 because i loved the idea of being able to lift and drop people then, started doing kick boxing but gave up after a year because it wasnt full contact. started doing back yard wrestling then my dad surgested mma to me last year but its taken me awhile to goto a place to do it been doing it for a month now but kinda need to gain a bit more weight and get some musels lol. I still rember my first fight lol

To build strength bro do alot of compound muscle movements. Excerises like squats, bench press, front shoulder press, dead lift and power cleans. This will help you build your strength and also help you build muscle. Now stength is one thing, but to fight you need muscle endurance. The difference is with strength training your sets are high and reps low like, 5x3-6 for every excercise. Endurance your sets are low with your reps high like, 3x12-25. Me I train for endurance like this. I pick either upperbody or lower body to do and then I pick 5 different excerises to do and each excerise for 1min then move right into the next and so on until the last excerise without not rest then take 1min rest period then do it again for 5 sets. So it is like a fight with 5 5min rounds. Also run for 3 days a week and jump rope for 2 days a week. with running start out with running for 15mins then work up to 45 mins, don't worry about distance to start with you will worry about that when you can run for 45mins.
