    #38 - Rock climbing strength training applied to BJJ. Grip Strength & so much more.

    #38 - Rock climbing strength training applied to BJJ. Grip Strength & so much more.

    Steve Bechtel is one of the leading authorities on strength & conditioning for rock climbing, with almost 30 years in the game and currently training some of the best rock climbers in the world. When it comes to grip strength for BJJ, there is no better sport to learn from than rock climbing. Although much more than that, there are many synergies between rock climbing and BJJ when it comes to balance an intense sports practice with strength & conditioning. I hope you enjoy this interview with Steve, and how it relates to BJJ, as much as I did.

    #36 - Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization for Peak BJJ Performance

    An interview with Dr Bob Newhalfen about the importance of Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and overall physical performance. We talk about how being strong in DNS positions replicates the strength & stability that could apply to a BJJ guard, why a 6 pack….or 8 pack my not be a good thing, dangers of too external hip rotation and not enough internal rotation in BJJ fighters, a DNS approach to Yoga and mobility…..plus much more.

Yeah buddy!

I’m have the good fortune of being able to train with Professor Laurence at Carlson Gracie Temecula/Murrieta, and can definitely vouch for his skills and the info he shares here. He’s an absolute MONSTER on the mats but a super nice and humble guy whose knowledge of jiu jitsu and ways to better your game has helped me immensely.
From improving your strength to proper mindsets for class or competition, there’s info here that is beneficial to all belts and skill levels. Do yourself a favor and subscribe to this podcast, your game will only get better.

Thank you Professor, see you on the mats!
