    What do you guys do outside of the gym to assist with your BJJ?

    I will assume stretching and weight training are a priority.

    Do you do extra BJJ exercises?

    Drills?

    Roll at home?

    On BJJ days, My team and I start off on a couple mile run. And after the run we do alot of abdominal conditioning ie. crunches, to triangles, to medicine ball work, and last we finish up with hip rotations on a partner in guard to work on the fluidness of armbars and triangles. After that we stretch, work on technique, and then get to the good stuff.

    I drink acai and stare at chicks in thong bikinis. It makes me feel more Brazilian and makes my BJJ game rock.

    Nearing a ripe 34 years of age (and abuse), I spend my off days icing my knee, stretching my back on my BodySlant/Liberator (yes, the wife and I really have one), and working out on my elliptical machine. I do light weights and tension exercises with thera-bands,etc.

    Other than that, I have grappling matches with my wife for who does the chores. One of these days....I'm gonna win. :redface:

    When I'm on the road for work, I do whatever the hotel's gym offers me....so I switch it up a lot.

    I make a workout by rolling around on a swiss ball, do sitout drills, back bridge drills, momentum drills, etc. one day a week in addition to class. I also play pickup basketball for cardio once a week and lift weights 2-3 days a week also.
