I keep finding myself in the weight room less and less, because I want to train my technique more and more. Right now I am lifting 2 days a week, Tuesday and Friday. But I really feel my BJJ game is suffering by not going to BJJ on Tuesday, one of 2 days the class is offered. If I go to BJJ I will be down to lifting 1 day a week, on Friday. How important would lifting be to my development and overall game. At this point in my life I am really looking at getting myself healthy, and maybe down the road looking to compete in MMA. I just can't decide what split would be best for my development of overall strength, technique, as well as overall physique... I need to lose weight. If I decide to lift only on friday, I would be doing a full body workout. Bench, Squat, Deadlift, and then some other excercises focusing on biceps or back work, etc. My diet has been in check more-so than ever so I'm slowly losing weight and getting into better condition, but I also used my gym for cardio so less days at the gym means less running or eliptical work. Maybe I should just wake up in the mornings for cardio? That would suck but I think I could... I would end up with only about 6 hours of sleep a night. Maybe 8 if I go to bed early. I have alot on my plate, haha.
