    Small Intro

    Hi all, I'm in Southern California, new to this forum (though not necessarily new to "bullshido", I've watched bullshido vids many many times). I'm currently looking at a BJJ dojo, though I haven't been in it so idk how good it is. (It was recommended to me by a friend).

    babalubjj. com

    I'm not sure exactly how great it is (information seems a little vague and the site looks intimidating) so if anyone has any personal experience with this place, let me know! I plan to drop by once finals end next week, if I can.

    Okay, with a little break from finals studying I have a question I've wanted to ask:

    I'm currently not using weights (will in a few months, not doing so right now because I'm a typical teenager worried about stunting my growth). What do you mma pros recommend I do for exercises? (Other than work everything.)

    What muscles are the most important? For grappling. I'm in HS Volleyball so I've basically only worked on lower body there. I do lots of running off on my own though.

    Thanks

    Really depends on the pro.
    Virtually every single one of them have a DVD to sell ya. Most of it is crap.
    Heavy in anaerobic cardio. IE Lots of wind sprints and of course actually working on the fighting.

    All of them. A very strong core, legs, and grip are all needed.
    If you have any interest in doing MMA you should be in Judo or BJJ as soon as possible.
    Stuff you can do on your own time?
    Pilates

    here is a good link for general exercise information.

    Just go to the MMA/BJJ class. Best way to be prepared for MMA/BJJ is to train for MMA/BJJ. Later, a lot later, you can add **** to your training regime. Until then, you're going to be struggling with the handful you'll be dealt.

    Haha whatta you know. Seems like I was misinformed.

    Why anaerobic? What's the benefit of that? (And what exactly would an anaerobic exercise be?) I'll work on wind sprints.

    I'm going to use that to do sprints.

    I'm checking that link out. Pilates? I've heard of it, it's like yoga correct? (Gonna google real quick). I'm joining a BJJ gym this Friday actually (if all goes well there).

    Edit: Looking at the exercises posted on exrx, they don't all use weights, but still require equipment, which I don't have access to at the moment.

    No equipment? Pushups, burpees, squats, lunges crunches... body weight workouts.

    I'm no pro fighter, but conditioning is a good place to start.

    What Is Anaerobic Fitness?

    Cardiovascular fitness is developed by engaging in aerobic activities. These are activities that you can maintain over a sustained period of time and use oxygen. Anaerobic activity works differently. It is activity that
    requires high levels of energy and is done for only a few seconds or minutes at a high level of intensity. The term anaerobic means “without oxygen.” Participation in anaerobic activities leads to anaerobic fitness, which may be defined as higher levels of muscular strength, muscular endurance, and flexibility.

    Examples of anaerobic activities include running up two flights of stairs, sprinting 40 yards, doing a fast break in basketball, or swimming 100 meters. All of these activities would require large amounts of energy, a requirement that your body cannot meet for very long. This is because your heart cannot supply enough oxygen-rich blood to your tissues and organs to meet the high demand. Therefore, your ability to work anaerobically depends on the ability of your tissues and organs to function with limited amounts of energy.

    For most healthy individuals, the key factor limiting energy production during aerobic exercise is the supply of oxygen that can be delivered to the active muscles. As long as the intensity of the exercise stays below a certain level, the individual will rely on this aerobic (with oxygen) energy system to supply the majority of the energy needed by the working muscles.

    However, the more vigorous the activity, the more energy the body and the working muscles will require. As intensity increases, the body eventually reaches a point where it is no longer able to meet its energy needs using only the aerobic energy system. At this point, the body starts to rely on anaerobic (without oxygen) energy systems to supply the majority of the energy. While the anaerobic energy systems are effective at providing energy during high-intensity activity, relying heavily on this energy system causes an individual to tire quickly and places the heart under a great deal of stress. Early fatigue can actually lower the total caloric expenditure of an exercise session and decrease the cardiovascular benefits of exercise.

    Thanks, I did Pilates yesterday and have to say, props to whoever does that. The workouts were pretty dang tiring (I did 3 of them, phew). I'll keep these workouts in mind and try them Thursday or Saturday probably. Once again, thank you for your help and advice!
