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

comment Why does Starting Strength prescribe minor resets?
Good point. Getting used to failure (or grinding through a challenging weight with worse and worse form) isn't great for long-term progress.

You need to be more specific about the exercises you can and can't do. How many air squats does it take to make you vomit?

comment Arms are too long to snatch? Advice, please!
Maybe try snatching and OHSing (lightly) with the wider grip for a while, to see if your wrists acclimate?

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 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?
