    When do you do MA ?

    I do BJJ or Crossfit 4 or 5 days a week. The combination depends on how much mat time I can get which depends on how busy work is.

    I did not realize this. So the "set of 5" twice a week should cover my grappling and striking strength training needs quite nicely then?

    It would be nice to get an additional morning off.

    You have to figure out what works for you, but I'd recommend trying to work your whole body 2x per week. Lifting whole body 2x per week, judo 2x per week, and boxing 2 or 3 times per week always worked great for me. I was also runing and swimming without overtraining.

    Ideally, I'd think ST 2x per week, and MA 2-3x per week would be a good routine for most people.

    Pretty much, especially if they have the last ST workout on the day where they will be resting after.

    Squats, weighted pull-ups, weighted dips, deadlifts, weighted sit-ups for the abs (on the possibly vain hope that it will help me with kicks/hits to the stomach and sternum).

    Good choices.

    You can try them twice a week ( monday and friday for example) and see how it goes.
    Maybe a Light ( 8-10 rep) and heavy ( 3-5 rep) day.
    Just to see how that feels.

    Thanks for the advice, which I shall take.

    Any argument to be made for deadlifts? I'm of the mind that the motion of deadlifting is really only replicating an invitation to be armbarred, but maybe that additional pec strength can be employed elsewhere?

    Deadlfiting is THE exercise.

    When you lift anythign heavy, what do you do?

    Take it slow, light weight to learn HOW to do it.
    Strong lower back is NEVER a bad thing.
