CF Newbie - Question for BJJ

Hi everybody!

Are there any recommended CF routines for BJJ practitioners? Any recommendations for a future grappler would be greatly appreciated.

Re: CF Newbie - Question for BJJ

I do a lot of heavy lifting with a lot of CF WODs as well. I've been doing a lot of CF Jax's programming... Strictly for the wicked.

What I've been doing must be working... A couple Jits boys have mentioned my strength. And the longer WOD's help me with the conditioning.

Just doing CF in general will help your Rolling game anyways... Then you can find your weaknesses and work on those.

I recommend getting on the mat as much as possible though, there's no substitute for rolling.

Good luck and kick ***!

Re: CF Newbie - Question for BJJ

spend time learning all the OlY lifts properly. they are a great tool in your workouts. gradually build up the intensity of your workouts and build your overall athleticism.

in class - lose your ego and leave most of your strength at the door. in the begining it is about tapping alot. Learn from tapping and from those that are beating you. if you substitute new muscle for technique it will slow your learning curve. later, when you are paired up with a partner of equal skill - play with the CF strength and conditioning and learn how and where it is beneficial and where it is wasted on bad technique.

CF and grappling can be a win win learning thing. each sport has a ton of technique that improves your performance in the long run.
