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.

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.

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.
