The Power Of Specialized Conditioning For Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Resuming Brazilian Jiu Jitsu After Double Total Knee Replacements.

Does a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu athlete ever quit, take time off, change academies and change their entire lives? Yes to all the above and no judgements because we only live in our own shoes. I just resumed my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training after a 3 year rehab for my knees. Now that I am back, it felt like I never left.

The only difference is I will be augmenting my training to:

*Reflect any decrease in mobility because of the titanium hardware that my knee and knee joint is now made of. Knees don’t bend much and can hurt if bent too much.

*Lost timing because of no drilling or training for 3 years.

*Decrease in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu conditioning. This will be the focus of this post, which might turn into more than just a post.

This blog post that will take me several days to complete, will serve as documentation that by practicing Spinnex Vitality, a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) athlete can maintain a high percentage of conditioning while not training in BJJ. All that is required is to take the same amount of time, the same time of day and practice Spinnex Vitality on your own in the comfort of your own home.

Drill, train round 1, train round 2, train round 3, rest round, train round 4, train round 5
