I lift, train combat sports, and am interested in any physical or outdoor culture.

Maybe try snatching and OHSing (lightly) with the wider grip for a while, to see if your wrists acclimate?

Where does crossfit figure into this? Does the OP do crossfit but not say so?

Thanks for noticing the tag issue! And I hear you about getting mistaken for a competitor.

Just a note, "weightlifting" (one word) is generally taken to mean Olympic weightlifting (as in, the snatch and clean-and-jerk), as opposed to powerlifting (squat, bench, deadlift) or weight lifting (just, y'know, lifting weights).

-1 for low effort and not enough details about goals.

comment Is this muscle gain?
I can't tell if you're saying "gain 5 pounds of pure muscle while not gaining any fat" or "gain 5 pounds of pure muscle while also gaining a pound or three of fat". They're not the same.

-1 for low effort. Without details about what you've been doing this is worthless.

comment Muscle mass with dumbbells only
1) that's not "progressive overload and optimal rep range", like in your answer. 2) After achieving 100kg DL with dumbbells the options are "get access a barbell so you can lift more weight", or suboptimal strategies like stiff-leg DLs, one-leg DLs, cleans, snatches, and swings. But those shouldn't take "a few years"--maxing out a pair of 50kg dumbbells for a C&J should take a year at most. For muscle mass, which the OP is after, maybe there are other options involving isolation movements.

I'm saying that it a 100kg deadlift for a set of 5 or 10 should only take maybe three months for a reasonably healthy adult male. Staying at 100kg for a year doesn't sound productive. Are we saying the same thing?

Several years to a 80kg C&J? A year to get a 100kg trap-bar-style deadlift? Those sound like reasonable timeframes for a small man or average woman, but the median adult male should he hitting those easily within a few months.

comment Lifting Iron (strength training) vs pushups ( knuckle)+ body weight squats+situps
This doesn't really address the question: which is better for martial arts, lifting or bodyweight?

@half-pass People in this position need a general strength program, which SS provides. I'm not beholden to it as a program, but there's no particular reason to change it for this purpose. I used it in this example because the OP mentioned it.
