Thread: Conditioning for bjj

  1. #1

    Default Conditioning for bjj

    What sort of exercises can I do to enhance my game and make the most of my time outside of class ?
    I really dislike lifting weights and am more into body weight exercises that can be done any where .
    I know what can be done but what exercises are best for bjj and what muscles do i want to be working ?

    One exercise which is very specific for Judo and BJJ is chin/pull-ups with the Gi... Does wonders for your grip, arms and your back....

    Can't be done everywhere but swimming is great for BJJ! I notice a big difference after just a few weeks.

    Cross-trainer is good.

    Set it to a pretty high level so you're working on muscular endurance and cardio.
