Anton reading where you are as far strength I agree I do think you have a great baseline of ME Strength. Tell Scotty what you are after and I am sure that he can throw in a little additional work for you.

Yael and I have both started threads on here about strength / conditioning training for MMA / BJJ. Mine was back in March of last year maybe? Where we discuss different training methodologies for what we were trying to accomplish.

I believe that there is sport specific strength in grappling that is more comparable with what I think gymnastics call static strength (maybe). There are a lot of times when I am grappling that I think I am an anaconda and just slowly add more and more pressure on the move I am making every time my opponent gives me room. You have to be able to be under tension for longer periods of time to finish some moves.

Great thoughts from everybody btw.
