Last month I took you through 3 mobility drills to help you achieve a more efficient “knees-to-chest”. This week, we’re taking another look at 3 more mobility drills that will help you level up your guard.

Personally, I love the following drills, and they've done wonders for me:

  • 💪🏽 Deep Squat and Reach: Spend more time in a deep squat position, and work on bringing those knees to your chest!
  • 💪🏽 Squat Pulls: This exercise allows you to “pull” yourself down into a deeper squat than you may normally be able to achieve.
  • 💪🏽 Cossack Squat: This classic old-school mobility drill also doubles as a strength exercise and can be done weighted (with a kettlebell, dumbbell or even a barbell on your back).

If you want to see demonstrations on how to perform each of these movements, they’re featured in Day 3 of the 30-Day Jiujitsu Mobility Challenge which you can watch it here.
