    2 days of strength training per week is more than enough to train your CNS efficiency. 3 days every 2 weeks is also enough, etc etc. Don't buy the Muscle and Mythness hype.

    Macho, I'm pretty sure he was referring to this:

    But maybe I shouldn't listen to him since I'm not trying to bulk up, just become stronger.

    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

    I thought you were saying Emevas' advise was bad (rather than the bodybuilder sjc was referring to), so I was giving you 48 hours to explain before sending your post to the purgatory :tongue3:

    It sounds like you don't really have a great routine for your goals. You might want to try sticking to big movements for low reps and high sets.

    Here's an example of something that'll work for yu.

    Monday:
    Squat
    Bench
    Pull-up

    Friday:
    Deadlift
    Overhead press
    Bent over row

    Pick a weight you can do for 5 reps on each weight and try to do 5 full sets of 5 reps with it, keeping the same weight on every set. Do this until you can do 5 full sets, then increase the weight 5 lbs and start over. Every 3 weeks, do only 70% of the total volume, to give your CNS a chance to rest, then start the whole process over.
    By volume do you mean weight or do fewer reps, or both?

    Fewer total reps. So if you're doing 5 full sets of 5 reps, you're doing 25 total reps, so 70% of that would be 3 sets of 5 or 5 sets of 3 (roughly), or however else you want to work it.
