training help

ok sooo i just starting training, trying to get my weight up and get stronger. I do 5sets of max push ups 5 sets of max dips 5 sets bicepts (lol)max 5 sets of squats also i do some shrugs maybe once a week 5 sets. So i was just browsing internet and read alot of people complaining about being big but not being as strong as some stronny guys...was wondering what this workout will accomplish? i want to get bigger, but i dont want to sacrifice strength i want a balance.
Also if you think ne thing of my work out should be changed lemme know, i do it about 3 times a week. also i was wondering about doing overhead presses sitting because i dont have the height in my basement to do them... thankkkss in advanceee

the difference in strength you mentioned usually occurs as a result of the difference in training methods. someone who lifts weights alone will be bigger than a guy who wrestles, does BJJ or Judo- but the guy that does the grappling will have what appears to be more strength because his muscles (and support muscles) are more developed and trained to respond to the dynamics of a moving weight such as a person.

weight lifting will work support muscles, but not to the extent that grappling will. you also tend to have better balance and stability with grappling training than you do with weight training alone.

if you want some workouts that will help you get the grappler strength without the grappling you'll need a friend and a Gi. if you can get those, post here again and i'll tell you about some of the workouts.
