My years in judo an jujitsu showed me they had a different kind of practical strength.
They could lift things with their bodies and move them in different planes of direction vs a lifter who just moved up and down. Grip was also usually way better too
Yes. I've been grappling 7 years so I have a good amount of this functional strength but I've also changed my physical training to things like KB swings, TGUs, suitcase and farmers carries, pullups, muscle ups, dips. I'm sort of trying to simulate manual labor. Lol
