Pandemic Training Ideas

Hi guys – Ive come up with an idea to help keep motivation and training up, certainly helping me.

Since the minutes silence to remember fallen NHS/Frontline staff I decided to do kettle bell swings with my heavy kettle bell, one for each person every day. I chose these to help recuperate my back and help to strengthen it after injury. The total is over a hundred and I am finding it very inspirational, needing to push to do the set, I have to dig deep. Also as a result I am doing a quick warm up and warm down (essential but an extra bit of exercise) plus often feel in the mood to do a few other exercises once I have got the engine going! Why not pick something, try it! Pick something achievable and safe, you can always add to it or modify your chosen offering..

Some other ideas – how about take the opportunity to practice moves on your family, they can learn too – safe and gentle mind!

Use the warm up drills on my sheet and get family members to pick numbers and watch you suffer their choices, giggles all round!

I found a really good way to use a deck of playing cards to randomly pick drills/exercises – either you or a family member could be in charge… more giggles – details to follow

Have a browse of the IBJJF rules and brush up on knowledge so you are set to go as soon as lockdown ends – link to follow..

The UKBJJA is offering some online material, may tickle your fancy – link to follow

Break down your game, watch some youtube videos of top guys rolling – see if you can make a list of things to explore, now or when training resumes.

Anyone who is trying to remember a move/technique, especially the warm up drills that we do, feel free to contact me and i will try to explain/assist 🙂

Also if anyone else has any ideas, drop me a text etc…

Keep safe oss….
