Isn't that only true up within a narrow band of performance ? otherwise I would be able to increase the number of pushups I can do just by upping my max bench, or increase how far I can run before I gas out by doing high resistance leg exercises.

It will, but not as much as you would increase it by doing reps at a lower weight.

Don't waste time on a personal trainer unless you KNOW that they are qualified. Most have only a weekend seminar's worth of knowledge over you. If you want to build endurance and get some increased metabolic activity as a bonus, do centuries (1 set 100 reps).
Sets of 12-15 reps supposedly increase anaerobic endurance.
Now, if that translates to endurance during grappling, is beyond me.
I think its easy to to get to caught up into sets and routines and numbers. As long as what you do is challenging to your body it will adapt. Worry about changing things up when you stop making gains. I think the best way to increase your endurance for a certain activity really is just to do that activity more. Its hard so simulate the effort of grappling/striking in the weight room. I prefer to lift to increase strength and to grapple more to increase endurance.
It may since past a certain point, grapplers are basically doing their thing anaerobically. I experience grappling in the same way I would experience interval training (.ie. sprints at 90+MHR peppered with moderate jogging at 60-80MHR). Grappling is not done at a steady, regular 80+/-MHR. It's much more intense.

But the main problem is that most of them (even the really good ones) are not sport trainers. They are physical trainers with focus on getting plain vanilla people into shape or make someone a bodybuilder. They don't know squat about sport-specific training in general, much less when it comes to martial arts.
What exactly are you trying to remedy?

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
Macho, would you agree with what I said in my post? Also has anyone checked the website www.sportspecific.com?
It's my endurance in grappling. obviously the immediate answer is grapple more complain less.

Of course that's a sign of a good work out to.
I was just trying to figure out in my lifting what would work best to help my grappling.
I am a fairly strong guy who tires easily, and I don't just mean cardio but my muscle strngth so it's not necessarily strength but endurance for grappling I want to improve from my visits to the gym.
Would you mind telling us your height, weight, and body fat percentage? How long have you been grappling, and how often per week? (And how long are the practices? How long do you work on grappling drills, conditioning stuff, and rolling?)

It could be you assume a higher level of performance should be there, when it can't be done? Just an idea. I've never been so tired in my life than after 6 minutes of wrestling matches. *With no food the night before, heh.*)
There was article in local Fighter Magazine about "Svedberg Series" strength-endurance training, where you do six moves, 10 reps each, 4 rounds. Rest between moves in rounds is 10 sec between moves 1st round, 20 sec between two moves 2nd, 30 sec in 3rd 3 moves in row. And in 4th you do all six in row.
Sorry if this sounds complicated or stupid, but this is my elementary school english.
