I was wondering if anyone could kindly point me in a direction of what kind of strength/weight training is most beneficial for martial arts? also what do y think is the optimum ratio of muscle to height with regards to speed and agility in MMA?
Currently I've just been doing normal weight lifting. (Creatine/no gear)
No active formal training. just self training/practice of what I already know. (Tae Kwon Do, Arnis, BJJ, Some WC/JKD)
my other cardio consists of doing bboying/dance stuff along the lines of "You got served" cuz Im in some kind of dance competition. (yeah yeah, I know. It gets the chicas though and has improved my coordination/balance tenfold.)
I'm waver between 145 - 151 and I'm 5'6" (pretty cut)
How much more weight hould I get before it's "too much"
also, as I'm 21. I've read all the gear threads and SD threads.
Would it be best to wait until I x-ray to see if my growth plates close? or is significant height growth still possible.
