    I can't do 2, or 3, but I'm willing to learn. Does that mean I get to hang out across the street from the cool kids? Sorta close, but not "in"

    The strengthy folks at EliteFTS have an article on strength standards:

    http://articles.elitefts.com/trainin...-martial-arts/

    Their reasoning is sound:

    Let’s say that it takes 15 percent of your maximum effort to perform a double leg takedown. If you can then increase your maximum effort (or maximal strength) from 100 percent to say 120 percent, that 15 percent required effort is then actually reduced to around 10 percent, meaning you can then perform the movement using far less energy and you haven’t even considered conditioning. This makes you a more explosive and more efficient athlete. It’s a no brainer! The same applies to all movements in the sport—clinching, kicking, and general movement around the cage. So giving yourself a solid base of strength will add to your game in many ways.

    The short version is that they want you to have a +50% BW chin-up, deadlift and squat 2 to 2.5xBW, bench 1.5-1.8xBW. Solid stuff.

    Interesting numbers. I am getting close-ish to those though with my knee injury I am sure my deadlift and squat have dropped. I haven't don't those lifts for several months.

    I don't bench and my squat sucks, but I don't think their numbers are crazy. I'd say they're a little on the high side for recreational martial artists, but these are within reason for someone whose primary goal isn't strength.

    I do think it's telling that they include only the strength lifts and not the Oly.

    I've always chuckled at nxBW measurements. I'm tipping the scales at 308lbs. Granted, I'm overweight, but if I can squat my bodyweight for reps, that's significantly more than if my 120lb gym mate can squat his bodyweight for the same number of reps.
