    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Plyos help speed. Weights do help speed to an extent, but as far as striking is concerned, I prefer plyometrics by far. For grappling weight training can help greatly in terms of strength and sheer overpowering. And yes, my trainer IS a qualified fitness instructor.

    Once you start doing some O-lifts, you'll see that weight training for explosiveness is awesome.

    Assuming you weightlift to develop explosive power then yes it can improve your speed. If you're training under a bodybuilding program you won't necessarily get the same results regardless of the fact that you're still lifting weights.

    Here's an interesting article on MMA specific strength.

    Hey I asked my doctor when I went to get my PPD testing today, and he agreed that heavy weights at low repetitions helps your joints and tendons more than light weights at many repetitions

    Nothing to add except to relax the antagonists so they don't act as a brake when you punch. Working a heavy bag for long rounds is how I personally get at this because you must relax in order to go the distance. I often find my speed/power going up right before the end of a session (then of course, it goes to crap *at* the end).
