Routine Ideas

I really need a more productive weights routine.
As most of you know I have dumbells, light barbells and a smith machine available.

I want to do more functional training. Bench press imo is an ego lift. I find that it doesnt tie in with my grappling as well as I would like it to.

So basicly what kind of exercises or routines should I be looking at. I have about 3-4 days available to train weights.
Im looking to really increase my strength before I go into my cardio phase.

Any suggestions?

ODonovan8 has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Grip strength and forearm endurance are something that Ive been focusing on a lot lately and the results have been savage! Grip is a big part of grappling and I found it to be a weak link in the chain that was holding a lot of other stuff back.

I did lots of towel pullups, could only do 1 first (10 regular pullups) but worked my way up,

also farmers walks with a towel wrapped around the dumbell I like because I can easily mark my progress.

If you don't know what to focus on you might give it a shot! Its often overlooked by people
