    Just to see how that feels.
    That's exactly where I would start, then adjust it from there according to how you feel.

    I agree about the deadlifts too. Start light and get that form down. Remember, do not round your lower back when doing the DL. Always maintain proper spinal alignment, even if it means you stay light for a while.

    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.
    I am an idiot.

    In my last post, I didn't mean deadlifting at all (even though I wrote it twice), I was actually meaning benchpressing. What's your opinion on the benchpress?

    In my opinion, Dips are far superior. I do both, just b/c I like benching, but if I could only do one, it would be dips. Bench Press is probably the most useless of the major lifts. If were you, I would do standing Military Press though.

    That's what I'm doing right now and I've been getting pretty good gains (in body mass and strength).

    lifting

    I used to lift three days a week. One day of squats/shoulders then day two bench/dips/incline then a day of pullups/rows/deadlifts. I started bjj and my strength went to crap. NOt like I was real big or anything but I was making some progress.

    After the first week I could barely hold the steering wheel to drive home, but I think my grip/elbows are getting stronger. How many hours a week is good for a new white belt? As many as I can get or should I limit myself to 1 or 2 a day?

    Your strength was ok, but your endurance was crap, that's why. I remember after my first BJJ class, my neck felt numb and it felt like my head was about to just fall off.

    You should have gathered Chi from the ground and air first.
