One should mix it up.

I train with Kettlebells as well as resistance bands, shotputs, trap bar, dumb bells, bodyweight, tension sets.

I change it up and it keeps me from getting bored or from being burnt out no things.

I agree with Dale. Anything that keeps things interesting and fun is gonna be good trainin. But the closer you get to the fight, the closer to the real situation you have to get. All the kettlebells and weights etc will help, but there's nothin better than gettin in the ring/octagon/cage and usin the muscles the way they are gonna be used in a fight.

I agree too - keep it functional for what your intended training purpose is. Personally I like of mix of strength / cardio / flex / ROM and prefer to keep things simple and basic. Also important that your training doesn't compromise your health

Over the past year or so I have been using the Starting Strength program as laid out by Coach Mark Rippetoe. The best of his books to start with is "Starting Strength: Basic Barbell Training". In terms of buying weight lifting gear I always buy from Iron Mind; I think their stuff is great (but not cheap!). There is also a "Starting Strength Wiki" that is a good free internet resource devoted to Coach Rippetoe's approach. I have really noticed a major improvement in my judo/Brazilian jiujitsu as a result of that program.

take care,
Brian

Barbell training

I agree with Brian. I was also told by a former Lei Tai fighter Tyson dewees about how Crossfit is dangerous and lifts need to be slow and exact. he told me about the "Starting Strength" Book. I blogged about it about a year ago. I def have improved and it shows when having to pick people up in San shou sparring.

Personally I believe in using weights for general strength and using ones MA for functional strength training.
I like the weight training that hits the compounds and tends to "mimic" everyday moves:
Bench press, squats, overhead presses, deadlifts, pull ups, dips, push ups, curls, those types of things.
I like to have one workout for higher reps with more body weight exercises ( weight added with a weight belt) - Dips, Pullups, handstand presses, push ups, one handed push ups, one legged squats.
And one workout with the low to mid rep range with the big core lifts - Bench, DL, Squat, OverheadPress, etc...
Build a solid core of strength and then that strength will be there for you in your MA.
