OntheMat.com proudly presents the FightWorks Podcast! The top Jiu-Jitsu, Submission Grappling, and MMA Podcast on the Net!
So I get a message on our MySpace page from Christian, a member of the Mighty 600,000 from Arizona, wondering if we had any gym routines for Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioners. So I says to myself, “I don’t, but I know who does”.
Martin Rooney is a professional strength and conditioning coach for athletes of all sports, a purple belt in jiu-jitsu under Ricardo Almeida, and a black belt in judo. Earlier this year Rooney published Training for Warriors: The Ultimate Mixed Martial Arts Workout, a book on ways to improve our strength, conditioning, and flexibility when we are not actually training combat sports. The book currently has received 4.5 out of 5 stars from customer reviews!
In this episode of The FightWorks Podcast, Rooney will cover specific ways folks can complement and improve their jiu-jitsu game with some cardio and strength exercises. We will also cover training when injured (who hasn’t been there?), common mistakes BJJ folks make in the gym, and more!
Thank you Christian for the idea for this show!
