Lifting decreasing agility...?
I find that after a heavy lifting session my agility from stretching and other drills where I train seems to vanish as my muscles tighten up in response to the amount of work they're doing. I can recognize this as strength gains, yet I don't want to see my agility take a step back because of it. Any recommendations?

1. Use the f*king search function. This topic has already been discussed ad nauseum.
2. Read the stickies. We have threads on those topics, specially on stretching and agility.
3. Do what I suggested you to do on the link below. Every question you have asked so far is answered by those steps.

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
