Will weightlifting improve my jiu Jitsu?

    "Sport-specific" weight lifting will improve your jiu-jitsu.  You can find all kinds of instructional books and videos online about sport-specific training for jiu jitsu.  It's very important not to put on "too much muscle", because muscle robs the body of oxygen, and stamina is extremely important in jiu jitsu.  You don't want to be bulky and huge like powerlifter Mariusz Pudzianowski.  That guy got "owned" in a fight against the bloated, fat, weak, Tim Sylvia who knew how to conserve energy from years of training in jiu jitsu and MMA.

    Weight lifting will definitely help strengthen your body immensely. I know physical strength is not everything in martial arts but it is still important to have. When you lift, use compound movements: squats, bench press, deadlifts, overhead press, rows, push-ups and chin-ups.
