    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    My cardio non-BJJ routine

    I'm no longer losing any weight doing just BJJ and Yoga. I'm 6'4" 265 pounds.
    I have quite a bit of fat left to lose (although I'm a hell of a lot thinner than when I started
    I'd like to be down to 230 lbs.

    I try to eat 4-6 small meals throughout the day, although I usually tend to eat a carb heavy/high caloric meal after working out.

    I decided that in addition to the 5 days of BJJ a week 1 day of Judo and 2 days of yoga (back to back with the BJJ) I will add this routine to my exercise regiment.

    I'd just like your thoughts on it (and it's ability to help me increase fat loss).

    I repeat this exercise 3-5 times, I just started doing this two days ago but I find it tiring. (I know most of you probably wouldn't but I'm a fat guy OK!?)

    With each exercise I try to go all out for the time, not paying attention to the # of reps of the exercise, i'm just trying to max performance.

    The cycle consists of:
    30 Seconds Jumping jacks
    30 seconds Squat Thrusts
    30 Seconds Crunch
    30 seconds push ups
    30 seconds Leg lifts (Like a reverse crunch)
    30 seconds Hindu squats

    2 minutes rest, then repeat.


    I don't know whether it'd be more beneficial anerobicly to do 30 seconds of going all out followed by 30 seconds of rest and then moving on to the next exercise, or if what i'm doing is sufficent.

    Any help/advice is appreciated.

    Judo is 1 mile from my house, BJJ/yoga is about 10 miles from my house. The Cycle work I listed I can do anywhere though, which is the beauty of it.

    I would suggest running to and from judo, but BJJ presents a little bit of an issue... definitely run though.

    I've tried running and the last time I did it I ended up screwing up my back. I don't know how I screwed up my back but I couldn't walk right for like 4-5 days. I weighed about 280 then. I do have a Stationary bike at home which I find boring (why I took up MA's in the first place).

    No I don't do any weight training at all. The only kind of lifting I do is all bodyweight (i.e. in yoga) i.e. push-ups/hindu push ups, hand stands etc.

    Is there any reason in particular you don't do it? If not, you may want to consider it. As it stands, I imagine your cardio system is already getting hit pretty hard from all the BJJ and Judo, and an extra cardio session or two won't really do too much, whereas lifting might be just the new stimulus your body needs to start making gains in weight loss again.

    Is riding a bike to your classes an option? Also, when you were running before, was that before you took up yoga and/or bjj?

    The loss of weight + the increase in core strength you had from the two might make worth giving it another (tentative) shot.

    Or you could ask a doctor first, because I really don't know what I'm talking about.

    No, no specific reason really. I just don't have access to my college gym anymore. A few years ago I used to lift, but when I do I have to admit I really don't know what i'm doing.

    I'm trying to remember what I used to do.

    To start with I think one day I'd work my lower body doing two sets of 15 with about a minute of rest in between the sets. Then the next day I'd do upper body, same thing. Rest 1 day, repeat, rest 2 days repeat.



    I think after a month I was doing 3 sets of 10, heavier weights with 1.5 to 2 minutes rest.

    I don't remember how I came up with this, but back then I did that + eliptical machines and I went from 290 to 220 in about a year.

    All I'm concerned with now though is losing fat. I'd like to maintain my strength, improving it wouldn't hurt. I'd like endurance more though. Essentially I want to be able to compete at a higher level, (i.e. being able to go longer and longer w/o gassing) and strength is the least of my concerns.

    Any advice is always appreciated.
