In last weeks newsletter I walked through how to prep for a BJJ Competition. In the guide I mentioned a strategy of selecting the best training program BJJ involves assessing your weaknesses and determine the best program that addresses those weaknesses.

I received a bunch of questions about how to go about those processes so I wanted to address it here.

List Your Areas of Performance:

I highly recommend assessing your current fitness level by listing out all the key areas of athletic performance or those that are important to you, and rank yourself on a scale of 1 to 10, then based on the 2-3 areas that need the most work, select a jiujitsu specific training program that addresses those areas, areas of performance may include:

  • 💪🏽Strength
  • ⚡Power
  • 💥Explosiveness
  • 🏃🏽‍♂️Aerobic Conditioning (endurance)
  • 💨Peak Anaerobic Conditioning (VO2 Max)
  • 🧘🏽‍♂️Mobility / Flexibility

Now what…

Once you have identified your top 2-3 areas you want to develop/choose a program that best aligns with addressing those weaknesses. For example, if you’ve identified STRENGTH as your primary focus area then I recommend follow BJJ Strong or alternatively if MOBILITY is your primary concern then you want to do BJJ Move.

This is a particularly effective strategy if you’re feeling overwhelmed and you WANT to improve your performance for BJJ but are not quite sure where to begin.
