Weight Training for BJJ – Beginner Tips and Splitting Up Sessions

In this video my buddy Joe and I got a lift in on a Monday morning.

Here’s Joe’s Youtube if you want to learn more: https://www.youtube.com/user/Unriavledfitness

Before the lift started I threw up a story on Instagram and asked for questions regarding weight training for BJJ.

If you have no muscle, is it better to do low reps high weight or high weight low reps in the beginning?

Do you do any grip strength training for no gi?

How should you split of weight training , BJJ and possibly muay thai training?

You’ll also notice that I am not going incredibly heavy. And honestly this is mostly the case with my lifting. I rarely go SUPER heavy in the gym.

As I’ve figured out over the years. Only so much of that is going to find it’s way to the way to the mats when I’m doing Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.

Along with all of this you’ll hear us talk about whatever we are planning to talk about. As well as a few nuggets of information about strength training in relation to BJJ.

Talk to you guys next time!
