5 Minute Basic Warm Up Drill for BJJ

A few weeks ago I posted a video showing you some ways to use the Foam Roller to improve your mobility. Like I pointed out in it, while some people may argue the benefits of strength training for BJJ almost no one disputes the need for mobility training. The better you move the better your flow on the mats and the fewer overuse injuries you’ll incur.

Taking things one step further I wanted to share a basic mobility routine I like to use to warm up for workouts both in the gym and on the mat. In fact, we’ve started using this sequence as part of the class warm up at my BJJ academy and I’ve gotten some great feedback from fellow students as to how it has helped them.

In this video I show you a 5 minute routine that will improve your joint mobility and get you warmed up and ready to rock.

Try this warm up routine next time you train and let me know what you think. If you have any questions or comments on it just post a comment below and if you liked this video please click one of the Like or Shore buttons to help spread the word.

Until next time…

Roll Strong,
