    Default best of both worlds?

    so its no secret that all martial artists of all styles used body weight exercise in place of weights to increase their physical attributes and sometimes build impressive physiques, however weight training yields benefits to martial artists like all athletes. so this brings me to my question as a martial artist who lifts 4 days a week and trains in martial artists/ cardio 2-3 days on non-lifting days would doing traditional body weight strength workouts on the days i don't lift help me increase my overall physical strength and possibly help me yield size gains?

    another thought would be the same question but on lifting days throughout the day?

    Size Gains = Caloric Surplus + Adequate rest. the body grows out of the gym not in the gym. Spending 7 days in the gym will not allow for much recovery for your body. I would try to still get a full day of rest or 1-2 days of rest on top of your athletic activities.

    I agree with Lazie above, a good diet that provides all calories required for your BMR + Activies + calorie surplus with provide gains, but more training can overtax the central nervous system, rest/recovery is equally an important factor

    Any sort of martial art is very a demanding sport on its own,so a traditional bodybuilding high volume training routine is not the best thing to do in my opinion,because you will get injured over time...Too much activity will start to inflame your tendons and ligaments.
    It is better to do some sort of full body workout (2/3 times a week) in the gym,where you have on one day functional movements,and on the other some sort of muscle building training style.Search on the web for some workout programs of jacked mma/boxer athletes (Mike Tyson,Mirco Cro Cop,Tyron Woodley) and moderate it for you.
