BJJ Poll: Do Your BJJ Classes Have Organized Warm Ups Before Instruction Begins?


Another poll suggestion from Ross! This is one that I’m curious about, as Cohost Dan and I have been discussing this one for years. Let us know what it’s like where you train, and don’t be shy about leaving comments!

  1. we do a warm up 90% of the time. the highest ranking student in the class leads it. sometimes i do a 15 min ginastica routine when i do it.

    normally we just do about 15 min of running, rolls, shrimps, throws and stretching.

    more rarely we do ‘strength’ type exercises and i cant remember the last time we did sit up/crunches in the warm up…….

  2. depends on if there is a tournament coming up or if we’ve just come off one.
    Before tournies can be brutal 45 – 60 minute torture sessions.
    After tournies much more stretching, ginastica and positional repping.
    The boss keeps us guessing which is a good thing.
