When you’re not able to get on the mat, how can you keep up with your Jiu-Jitsu training at home? If you’re willing to get creative and be flexible, there is a lot you can learn while at home.
Here are a few ideas on how to keep up with your training at home:
1. Participate in live online events and watch instructional videos.
Not every aspect of your Jiu-Jitsu training has a physical component. You can gain valuable insight and information by listening to and learning from experienced instructors. Use your school and its instructors as a resource to find quality online resources, including live events and instructional videos.
2. Reflect on your strengths and weaknesses.
Think about your training in terms of technique, physical fitness, and mental skills. Take some time and reflect on your strengths in each of these areas. Then, think about areas for improvement. What skills need some extra attention? What elements of fitness could you focus on? Are there gaps in your mental game that could use some work? Identifying the areas where you’re weaker can help you with figuring out how to adjust your training goals. Take these new goals and start addressing your weaknesses from home.
3. Spend some quality time working on flexibility, mobility, and conditioning.
Even though you’re not able to get to a mat, it doesn’t mean that all physical training must end. In addition to online classes, you can also keep training by devoting time to increasing your flexibility, improving your mobility, and getting in some aerobic conditioning (walking, running, biking).
Even though you’re not able to train with your regular partners or stick to your normal routine, don’t let this stop you. Remain focused on the things that you can still do. And keep taking care of your body by getting plenty of sleep and eating good foods throughout the day.
