In this podcast I go into depth about Isometrics and why they are a must for grapplers. Based on my experience there are 3 reasons why you need them as part of your BJJ strength training program...
- They are more “sport specific” for the physical demands of the mat. Grappling requires more isometric strength than any other sport and so it is important in ways that other sports can’t understand.
- Gives you the biggest return on your time investment with improvements to your strength, cardio and breathing.
- They don’t leave you as sore and tired as movement based training, which lets you train harder on the mats and be better able to defend yourself in the real world.
