Advice needed for a BJJ'er on complimentary exercise for Squats and Deadlifts.
I'm just starting BJJ, I can only train at long intervals but intensive at those times but I will have access to a weights gym when I'm not training BJJ.
My plan is to just do deadlifts and squats.(I feel like there should be one more exercise as well but I'm not sure)
My goal is to get an iron hard core and tree trunk legs. And let my bjj training take care of the rest of my conditioning.
I used to do weights when I was younger and I lost a lot of flexibility, from my understanding, and reading, that these exercise will not take away my flexibility, and if done correctly will give me explosive power and work cardio as well.
I will be working 12 hour days, so I want a very short workout, that I can do after work.
Id appreciate any thoughts on this idea, and possible things i need to make sure of before lifting, ie stretches warmups, etc.
