I get asked all the time about my bjj workout and how I get in shape. The truth is that I do it pretty much every day, although I don’t usually do it when I’m not working out. Every day I pick up my equipment and get to work doing what I love. I love the routine, I love the time to spend in the gym and I love the fact that I’m not just working out to “get in shape”.
For some people, BJJ training is one of the most boring things in life. For others though it is one of the most fun things in life. I was a member of a Jiu Jitsu club in High School and I found myself doing a lot of the same moves for a long time.
I used to train with a lot of heavy bags and I was just as much of a fan as the others of the guy who would try to fight the guy with the high hands or the guy who used to do a reverse elbow. I was really into martial arts, so when I was a teenager and I took a break from doing the BJJ stuff, I decided to just focus on the basics.
I started my first BJJ class when I was in High School and I was having a lot of problems with my leg and I felt like I couldn’t have a good time out if I couldn’t do a good job. I thought that if I was just going to kick the crap out of people, I would be better served to do the BJJ.
I didn’t realize the level of difficulty of BJJ until I started doing it. It’s really hard and the amount of work it takes to learn is staggering. For starters, you’re going to be constantly hitting yourself in the back of the leg with your own leg. I felt like I was just going to break my leg.
In fact, the “bad” part is that you actually have to really focus on it. I know that sounds like I’m joking, but its true. BJJ is such a highly skilled sport that you actually have to put a lot of energy and concentration into that part of the sport.
I’m sure most of us have heard these words. “But a lot of people say I can do it more than anyone else!” Well, not so much the “more” part but the “more” part of… Yeah, I know, it kinda sucks. I have a really bad case of “dumb luck” right now as far as getting any training done at all.
But that also means that you can’t just do it because you have to. You have to find what works for you, because you’re not going to improve your skills by doing every single move. You will improve your skills by doing small, specific steps. And if you’re not doing that, you’re not going to improve. You’re going to keep doing the same moves over and over and over and over and over.
I had a lot of training done in my life, but I have to say that the best training I ever got was when I was a kid. I had to learn how to use the gym in the backyard as far as lifting weights, but the best workout I ever got was when I was a kid. Most of the kids at my school were all into video games, and it was a great way to beat the boredom.
And the best part about this workout? Well, you dont have to be a gym rat to do it. You can actually work out in your kitchen and use your bathroom.
