It can be hard to balance weight training and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. I know that for me, I struggled with it at a point in my life where I was getting bigger and stronger and was chasing numbers in the weight room.
But then struggled with my BJJ training because I was too big and beat up for sufficient rolling and work on the mats.
And in this video I talk about this in the hopes to assist our friend Peter who is a Powerlifter getting into Brazilian Jiujitsu.
He says that since training Jiujitsu he’s noticed that his lifts have dropped in their overall poundage.
And his question is two fold. . .
1. How to Balance BJJ training with his Powerlifting?
2. Should he readjust his expectations for training?
I also touch on the current program I follow for lifting in order to support my BJJ training.
If you’re someone who’s really big into lifting who’s also pursuing BJJ. I hope this video is useful for you and your training on the mat and in the weight room.
