How I Used Training to Deal with Life Problems (Don’t Do This)
Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is often like a form of meditation for many of us. After a hard training session we often feel a stillness in our mind.
BJJ does this like very few things can.
I bring this up because our friend Josh used BJJ to deal with a lot of the issues that exist outside the gym. But right now, he’s injured and is not able to train Brazilian Jiujitsu.
And the problem with this is, he’s dealing with his father who is dying of cancer and his girlfriend just left him as well.
He wants to get back into the gym as soon as possible and asked about the type of training he should be engaged in.
In this video, I talk 1st about how I was in a very similar situation as Josh, and how I dealt with it (which wasn’t a good way).
Instead of dealing with with my mother’s passing I chose to numb myself with excessive amounts of training. To the point where I would be in the gym at 3am lifting just to exhaust myself so I couldn’t think.
At the end after me trying to get Josh to think about easing his BJJ and Lifting training schedule I give a few tips on how train without aggravating the injury.
I hope the video helps!
