The Benefits of Strength Training for BJJ

If two grapplers step onto the mat with equal technique who will win? 

This scenario is often brought up in the BJJ community because many Jiu Jitsu practitioners feel technique is all that matters.  However, when that’s equal other factors come into play, like strength & conditioning.  If you look at other professional athletes striving to reach their full potential in their sport they’re not only doing sport specific training, but also supplementing with strength training.  It shouldn’t be any different with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.  Even if your goal isn’t to be a professional BJJ athlete, strength training will help you reach your full potential and make your body more resilient to injury.

 

 

Benefits of Strength Training:

1. Reduces injury risk

2. Corrects imbalances created from training BJJ (passing/playing guard to one side)

3. Gives you an extra advantage

4. Improves BJJ training longevity

5. Helps make your body more durable

6. Improves strength-to-weight ratio

 

Even if you realize how important strength training is it can be hard to know where to start.  You don’t want to waste your time and energy on exercises that aren’t going to specifically help you improve your BJJ.  Luckily there is an answer, and it’s Electrum Performance.  Electrum Performance is run by two Jiu Jitsu practitioners who are also extremely knowledgeable and experienced Strength & Conditioning professionals.  They not only have extensive knowledge with strength training, but they know how to specifically cater a strength training program to a BJJ athlete.
