I competed in Judo for years when i was younger and hung it up after about 4 years. I was thinking about getting back into it for something fun and competitive. How do you guys incorporate your Judo and Crossfit?

Technically I don't practice Judo. But where I train nogi grappling we have two very game Judo black belts.

Crossfit and Judo/Grappling arts mix pretty well. You will get all the strength you need from crossfit and your extra endurance will help you learn more from each session by pushing yourself harder.

Judo was my first martial sport. My dad was judoka since his HS days and beyond.
He can barely move too well anymore, but he still unleash some mean throws.

I haven't trained very much this year, but I competed in March and have another tournament in November.

I've used a bunch of different ways to incorporate my strength/conditioning/skill training, but I think when I start training again I'll just replace a metcon day with a skill day. So something like: lift/metcon/skill/off/repeat.

The single best grappling/mma conditioning program I have used is from Team Quest's Strength and Conditioning DVD. They have a classic weight circuit from wrestling programs to increase lactic threshold, but they add some pylometrics as well.

-Gi pullups and Rope Climbs for grip strength.
-Olympic Lifts and power cleans for explosive hip extension.
-Upright row and Military press for shoulder strength.
-Deadlifts for back strength

Sounds solid to me, but I'd probably drop the upright row (lots of controversy around that lift).

Also use some throw bags/wrestling dummies, I'd have a hard time not seeing it transfer over at all to Judo.

Anthony,
Where can I find the controversy, I am interested, because I have used that exercise in the past.

*I just did some searching, the upright row has little use in the Olympic lifts. I have seen alot of emphasis on the shoulder, hip, and back strength in wrestling and most programs include the upright row.

Mark, this is from Eric Cressey:

"I don't believe in contraindicated exercises, only contraindicated individuals. But if there's one exercise that'll ever push me over the line, it's going to be the upright row. This is as internally rotated as the humerus will get, and you're elevating the humerus right into the impingement zone on every rep. For that reason, I'll never write upright rows into a program. The dumbbell version is a slightly safer alternative, although I feel that there are still much safer ways to challenge the upper traps and deltoids. To summarize, if you've ever had a shoulder problem or are at risk, you'd be wise to omit upright rows altogether."

Well that is scary. Sad to hear it being so dangerous to the shoulder, it seems to be touted as a functional exercise in most wrestling programs.

Thanks alot Anthony.
