I'm just wondering what different workouts/diet everyone here does for general physical martial arts strength.

What BHB said, but don't post a question that generic when you do make it to the fitness forum. I suggest reasearching some routines and training principles and then look for advice from there.

As a starting point a few of us use variations of strength programs from Testosterone Nation: t-nation.com especially Waterbury's programs.

... btw, do front squats if you don't. That **** is good for grappling/throwing.

A note on the WB method. It's only one method. As such it should be used as a small part of a larger cycle of lifting schemes.

If you're doing proper training, then the grip training is a bit excessive. IE do deadlifts, heavy rows, etc. I don't think front squats specifically would be great for grappling or throwing. Any type of squat will do. Deadlifts are great for this purpose also as they both build unison and explosive strength.
