    wrestlers, judo ka, and otherwise grapplers, what do you do to condition yourself?

    When my arm heals, Im looking to make it to the snake pit in wigan more regularly and continue with judo and bjj. Im wondering what grappling specific conditioning we all do

    Strengthening the neck, the core, and the explosive power of the legs are usually considered handy things to do for those who wrestle.

    I tend to do a lot of leg work for Judo (heavy squats, bodyweight squats/sumo shiko, box jumps etc)

    What do you do for neck? Shrugs?

    Get medically cleared, and learn how to do it from a proper trainer, but bridging routines are very common.

    We've been over this before man.

    You can do all the weight lifting and cardio and other conditioning you want outside of class but if you keep hopping around from art to art like a flea beetle in a garden full of cabbage you're never going to get good in anything but lifting weights and Cardio.

    To be clear if that's what you like to do lots of different stuff that's all cool.

    Neck - http://www.exrx.net/Lists/ExList/NeckWt.html
    I like these - http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/...headSwing.html

    But this stuff are great solo exercises for grappling




    If you have a CXT their are a ton of things you can do
    Of the single rapier fight between valiant men, having both skill, he that is the best wrestler, or if neither of them can wrestle, the strongest man most commonly kills the other, or leaves him at his mercy.
