    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I googled it...

    Could i use those exercises with free-weights?

    I don't have the extra cash to pay the gym membership, or the time to even go...

    5x5, i assume five sets of five?

    what does the 3xf mean?

    Did you read through the program? I seem to remember it being very noob-friendly. Free weights will work as long as you have enough of them to be able to increase the amount slightly each week or so and have the tools for the important lifts. I was doing this program with a rudimentary home gym; deadlift bar, 200kg of weights, dumbell bars, bench (no rack for bench press or squat rack).

    ?
    Read the program carefully and you will find the answers to those questions.
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    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.

    t-nation - Dissecting the deadlift. Anatomy and Muscle Balancing Videos.

    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

    Nah, it all depends on the context of the program.

    Right now I'm getting ready for a fight. I lift on Mondays, a full body workout, squat, weighted dip, chin and some other work. On another day I do conditioning but power focused, so jumps, burpees, barbell complexes, ring push-ups, ring rows, treadmill sprints and more. These are all high intensity workouts. Lifting once a week is getting me stronger and helping me peak.

    It just depends on how the rest of your schedule is.

    Yeah one a week isn't as good as two a week but i've still made massive strength gains doing three sessions every 2 weeks. I pretty much follow whatever the smarter guys in the health forum say and it's worked out well, i used to max out at 15 reps of 45kg benchpress at the beggining of the year and before i injured my hand i was doing 15's of 65kg. Helps that i figured out the secret formula: heavy weights + ball busting effort + healthy diet +glutamine + fish oil = success.

    The beginners routine from SS will be better for BJJ than stronglifts.

    You will stall later and it includes an explosive lift which is a vital component for athletes. Stick to the exact program and drink a gallon of milk a day.

    You can also try West Side 4 Skinny Bastards. I use the template and its constantly variable and fits great. Its more of a template, not a set workout.
