Life Lessons from Jiu-Jitsu

 

It’s hard for me to believe that I have already been going to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for 4 years already.  

 

I remember the nervous, excited energy when I made that decision. 

 

I felt like a fish out of water for the first 3 months, at least!

 

I figured it would be timely to reflect on some life lessons from BJJ that I feel might benefit  you   in some way.  

 

It does not matter if you  know anything about jiu-jitsu or not, the lessons will be  applicable.

I am fortunate enough to study some pretty interesting things.  

 

Things that may have never been studied in conjunction with one another.  

 

And that means, making connections that no one has ever made, at least not through the same route.  

 

If you really stop to think about it, you do the same things or have the potential to do the same thing.  

 

We each have our own unique ‘stack’, something I’ve talked about many times before and something I open the show with.

Sometimes, seemingly intelligent people do things that make zero sense according to logic.  

 

You see that in fitness and nutrition all the time.

 

Heck, you even see it with everything going on in the world today.  

 

I know that if you listen to today’s episode of my podcast, you’ll connect some dots and become more powerful because of it.

Way back in 2003, when I was first interning with Rutgers Football strength and conditioning, I realized that what I had been taught in college regarding weight loss was completely wrong.  

 

Nearly all of it.

 

How so?

 

Well, a good percentage of the football guys were shredded and muscular, despite no long distance cardio nor watching their calories. 

 

They were in their hormonal prime, having intense workouts (remember intensity is relative to the person) and eating as much food as they could get down.  

 

And shredded.

 

Not that we have to be shredded (trust me, it’s overrated in my humble but accurate opinion).

 

In today’s episode I explain the nuances of cardio for weight loss and hopefully it will shed some light on you as to what your workouts should be doing for you.
