    1. Mma 4x per week weights 2x per week (15+ reps)

    2. Mma 5x per week 1
    Weights 4x per week 2 (15+ reps)
    Week 1
    Week 2
    Etc...

    3. Mma 5x per week 1-2
    Weights 4x per week 3-4 (15+ reps)
    Week 1-2
    Week 3-4
    Etc...

    4. Mma 5x per week 1-3
    Weights 4x per week 4-6 (15+ reps)
    Week 1-3
    Week 4-6
    Etc...

    5. Mma 5x per week 1-4
    Weights 4x per week 5-8 (15+ reps)
    Week 1-4
    Week 5-8
    Etc...

    How well do you recover? that's the big question, you don't want to overtrain.... got to find that fine line!

    You didnt give enough info to answer your question.

    How hard do you lift?
    How much extra cardio do you do?
    Your class schedule how much grappling, striking and how much of it is sparring?
    What is your workout schedule and what lifts?
    Whats your nutrition like?
    Do you compete? If you do at what level?
    How old are you?
    Are you on anything?

    you may be more prone to overtraining now that you're off ?
    you may not be giving yourself enough time to recover?
    just a thought

    Both, I'm hoping strength condition will produce the side effect of looking good, but I want to maintain my weight around 90kg

    If i was you i would keep weight training to a minimum , do like maybe a 2 day split 1 day - upper body higher reps fast movments low rest
    day 2 - power movments squats deadlifts abs, maybe some speed work. after this split have a rest or cardio/light day, because your striking will be rubbish then maybe initally 3 -4 days of whatever fighting style.
    don't try and fall in the pitt trap of coming from a bodybuilding background to fighting where you think weight training is the most important thing.
    just what i think .

    S.C WILL KEEP[ YOU LOOKING good but not as good as a b.b!
    a good strength conditioning programme for mma,would consist of core,plyometrics,b.w exercises, explosive moves with resistance i.e power cleans,jammer. then raw lifts like b.press,squat,rows,d/lift

    I was training for a year twice a week five hours on two differnt days at my dojo and then I was training on at least two or three other day with either weights or something at home and I found when I took a month off I realized I was over training and not letting my body have enough time to recoup. I was starting to get hurt all the time and get sick when I used to never get sick. I suppose everyone is differn't but I think we all need to let the body repair after we tear it down.

    I had a problem when training because I didn't have a specific enough goal when training. I want to train for endurence for MMA/karate and I wanted to gain muscle for looks and strength. I had too many opposing goals.

    ^^^I second this^^^

    You will get more from training if you let your body catch up and you will start to get hurt like I did.
