Stronglifts and BJJ

Stronglifts is not really the ideal program to team up with BJJ. Leave the weight room to the side as a BJJ beginner and focus on technique and functional strength first. If you are competing and feel you lose your fight on being overpowered by your opponents have a look into Wendler 531 and the Juggernaut method.

Stronglifts vs ketogains

Ketogains is a good choice when you can commit more time in the gym and also focus on your diet. Usually, this is too much for beginners. I recommend building better habits one step at a time. If you find easier to eat less start there. If you want to eat the same and get stronger go with Stronglifts 5x5.

Stronglifts and Muay Thai

Stronglifts is not the ideal pairing with martial arts. If you are a beginning fighter focus on your Muay Thai instructions and listen closely to your trainer. No need for extra work in the weight room, ask your master what to do instead if you want to train more. If you are a fully qualified Muay Thai fighter who wants to step up their game in the weight room, go for programs like Wendler 531 or the Juggernaut method. These are more suited to your level of fitness and goal set than Stronglifts 5x5.

Stronglifts and climbing

 

While Stronglifts is a great program to build strength and muscle it is not very specific to the sport of climbing. Your time is better invested on the climbing wall or doing calisthenics if your main goal is to become the next speed climbing world champion.
