I've been doing MMA practices 2 hours a day, 5 days a week for about a month now. I was on the Bill Starr Routine and seeing some nice noob gains to my poor squat and deadlift, but now my gains have plateaued and in some cases, (like my bench) they have dropped slightly. i usually lift a couple hours before the class on MWF. i eat as much as i can, and have been gaining some weight, but losing strength. i sleep around 8 hours a day so i don't think thats the problem. strength training and the MMA are both important to me. any advice on how i can most effectively balance the two out is greatly appreciated.
