My thread notification must have been messed up. Sorry to leave questions hanging for so long.

Jim answered this, but here's the thing. You can do a lot, A LOT of work if you manage this thing properly. The key to weight training to support a sport or conditioning routine is to do low volume, high intensity work. I don't do much in the way of assistance. I get 6-8 hours a week of assistance work on the mat. That's plenty.
