    Default Deadlift and Pull Ups for grappling style of fighting?

    Hi for profssionals who can't afford to leave many bruises or harm on their opponent for insurance like bodyguards or people not wanting to hurt drunks etc who use mainly judo type throws what do you think of pull ups and deadlifts for strength training?
    They're both pulling motions.
    How do you decide how long to spend on either practice, strength or plyometrics? In terms of ratios?

    For grappling sports, such as BJJ and I suppose Judo, towel pullups are great. You can also use your gi or your gi belt.

    But it seems like you're talking about work and I'm afraid that I don't know much about that, other than being thrown out of clubs a few times

    you should switch to chins rather than pullupps,they mimic the pulling motion you will use in judo much better(after a while you can even try towel pullupps,and such).
    What you have to be concerned is overworking yourself (grip ,CNS-judo is extremely tough on you body as is) so be careful how much additional work you do.

    heres a good short video int., with L.Simmons from WBb,it sums it up really nice.

    Here is a book on Judo which lists some strengthening exercises - deadlift is listed there as well as a modified pull-up.
