Maintaining A Healthy Workout Routine Though BJJ

Workout is a word that is surely going to catch the attention of most of us. If you want to become the heart and soul of friends get together, start sharing with them your daily workout routine, and how you dress up in yourworkout shirts to go to the gym and be in the right shape! And while weight loss might be one of the hottest topics out there, the chance is that one of your friends hates going to the gym. For them and even for an expert like you, perhaps, the best bet is BJJ. Believe me or not but even the top athletes undergo BJJ training to partake in the MMA. Moreover, when I tell you this, believe me, that BJJ is ideal for for those who want to maintain a healthy shape. In just a few months, you will start observing obvious results.

What Makes BJJ Stand Out

When you ride out your home with your gym bag gear all tidied up for a full day of activity; if you take in the right type of food substances at home for dinner and other meals, you will be bound to have a great day at the gym. BJJ stands out in that it will push you out from your comfort zone, unlike other martial arts. Spreadeagled on the ground your opponent will try to limit the movements of your limbs and you will struggle with all might to break loose from the grasp! The involvement of all muscles in the strenuous activities will allow your entire body to gradually evolve into a better version of yourself.

The following aspects of BJJ come in very handy in terms of weight loss.


BJJ warm-ups will fire you up. They are quite intense. The cardio will drive you to your limits. Jumping jacks, running around mats and other gymnastics that follow will test your endurance. These exercises will take a toll on your fats for the better. Yes, you will burn a lot of calories even during the warm-up. If you have difficulty, however, it is best to opt for a mild warm-up since this will allow your body to remain in the best form. Remember, that you have the complete class ahead of this warm-up and it’s advisable to keep the better part of your energy reserved for it. 


Now comes the really fun part. The part where you get to know what your assignment for the day will be. Your instructor will ask you to gather around and share the technique that you would be practicing for the day. This demonstration is done very carefully outlining the importance of every action involved in the technique. The methodology to counter it is also shared. Afterward, the instructor will ask you to get ready for an intense action time!


The beautiful thing about this part of BJJ is that here you get to do all the talking with your skills. Dressed in your athletic gear, now is the time to dive headfirst into live-action. All the students will be able to find a partner to practice the technique with. In this phase, the intensity is way too high. You will be able to burn a ton of calories in this phase as you struggle to get out of the hold of your partner or to hold them down!

Only one day spent in a BJJ training center is enough to make anyone understand the positive health and weight loss benefits of it. Being active and in shape all the time is never an easy job. But thanks to BJJ! With the added advantage of not having to lift any weight that weighs down heavily on your mental faculties as well!
