Weight lifting/Workout for better Jiu Jitsu?

I'm trying to find a good gym regiment that compliments my Jiu Jitsu. I find Crossfit doesn't give me the strength I'm looking for, and lifting heavy makes my muscles too tight/too tired when I roll. Does anyone have any recommendations or programs that they use off of the mat?

    Do heavy, but don't really go above say 70% max and see how that goes.

      70%RM is not heavy at all, it corresponds to about 12 reps. That's on the light/long half of the hypertrophy range. And I would rather advise to aim for 85% as the bread-and-butter, plus a bit of 90%.
