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

by Caleb on May 15, 2010

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!

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…….

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.

We have a rotating warm up ciriculm where I train that is great because it changes up the routine and keeps it from being dull while definitely getting your ready for the class.
