Breathwork for BJJ – Podcast Episode #7

In this episode of the podcast, I try to cover a huge subject – breathing and breathwork for BJJ. There is a lot of info in this episode and I know that I could have gone into more detail on a number of things I talked about. However, it will give you some things to think about when it comes to training your own breathing and using breathwork to improve how you feel and perform both on and off the mats.

Breathing is something that we take for granted but it can make or break our health and performance.
