    Hi im new

    Hello,
    Im new here and have literally no experience in martial arts. Im 23 years old, just started Starting Strength by Rippetoe (though i use to bodybuild awhile ago), and im looking to get into martial arts for possible competition and self defense.

    whattup grimace. Sounds like you stay pretty active. What martial art are you primarily interested in?

    Starting Strength is great. I was doing strong-lifts 5x5 and cross-fit for a while. Now I do a little bit more of a random work-out.

    Haha omega. Thank you all for the welcomes. I have a question. I know its stated that if you want good gains with rippetoe's starting strength then don't **** with the program. But on the same end I am itching to get into judo quickly. Anyone have any recommendations on a work out split that could pair my strength training and judo. Or am I better off just waiting another month till I have a good baseline.

    Resistant bands and foot works are your friends.
