With all the recent reports on how chronic cardio is bad for the heart and overall longevity, is Jiu Jitsu considered this? Its definitely a cardio intense sport but its not like running a marathon per se. All the reports ive read focus on... (more)

I'd argue no. The issues with Chronic Cardio tend to stem largely from two things: hypertrophy of the heart (not a good thing in excess) and long-term structural damage. The hypertrophy of the heart comes from when you push past "the wall" in... (more)

Depends on what your training and recovery looks like. Some foam rolling, epsom salt baths, and ice baths will definitely help you keep it up for longer. I wrestle 4 days a week and have found that if I don't eat enough, I start to feel like dog... (more)

I know this isn't an answer as such but, it depends on what you do well on. What do you usually eat for training? if you put in good work when 'rolling' then base it around what you eat on training day. Maybe add a little more starch than usual... (more)

While adapting a full on paleo lifestyle (sleep,food,training,etc) I admit I like to drink alcohol. Craft beer being my guilty pleasure. Usually 5-7 beers a week and a glass of red wine or margarita here and there. I'm a active BJJ competitor and... (more)

Ideally i would say dont drink as drinking (beer especially) has been shown to elevate estrogen levels and lower testosterone levels. Seems like you've answered your own question too since the effect of drinking just 2 makes you feel crappy... (more)

Hey guys, since turning paleo I have been really interested in changing my s&c days into bodyweight splits. I like the idea of having a more functional strength and since turning paleo I have taken it upon myself to look into how else I can... (more)

I don't pretend to be an expert, but I also do BJJ and my favorite bodyweight workout is: Round A (each exercise 1 minute): leg lifts, dips, squat jumps, planks, lunges Round B (each exercise 1 minute): leg lifts, push-ups, burpees, supermans,... (more)

I am currently attempting a diet designed to keep me in nutritional ketosis. Today I had a 1 hour class of BJJ, which I attended while fasting, since it was in the morning. My AM ketone level was 1.0 mmol upon waking. I decided to run a... (more)

If you have glycogen stored in muscle and liver then exercise would have triggered glycogenolysis resulting in glucose+ and ketones- the interesting thing would be if you have depleted glycogen.. likely your liver would still be producing some... (more)

Hello All, I have my first BJJ tournament coming up in November. Without going through my paleo/primal history or my day to day, I just wanted to hear what some fighters and/or bjj players have done for weight cuts. Pre-roll i'm between 204-207... (more)

204 to 202? Dude skip breakfast & take a dump. You're overthinking it. You can always wear a sauna suit while you drive to the event.

I've been really getting into BJJ and want to get as good as possible, so I need to bump my BJJ training up from 2 days a week to at least 4. Right now I do 1.5 hour class (1 hour of technique and 30 minutes of rolling) on an empty stomach in the... (more)

We almost always did BJJ on an empty-stomach, else we'd end up nearly vomiting during each session. If very hungry, we occasionally snacked an hour or so before, but never ate a full meal.

You probably need more calories than most. It may difficult to stuff down all those calories in just two meals. I wouldn't worry about it too much if you eat more meals. The amount of meals is a guideline for the average person. It doesn't... (more)
