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

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.

If you post your karate class schedule it would be easier to help schedule the lifting.

comment Advice for training biceps?
@Ejay Overtraining is not a workout schedule, but a specific person's response to a workout schedule. There are people who can train hard twice a day six days a week without overtraining, and people for whom an hour is too much exercise for a week.
