    I guarantee I would hit that pole every time I rolled. It looks like a nice light warmup, although everyone seems to be breathing very heavy and coughing all the time.

    It looked very slow. The two guys closest to the camera had some bad shrimping at least the first time through. I don't understand why you went from movement drills/stretches into shrimp drills, then in to more static stretching.

    What I like is as follows:
    1. 5-10 minutes slow light warm up(jog, high knees, shuffle, maybe some rolls or break falls)
    2. 10-15 minutes of higher intensity conditioning type drills and exercises.
    3. 10-15 minutes of functional bjj movement drills between the intensity of 1 and 2. Slow the heart rate a bit and be prepared for technique after a short rest.

    Warm Ups are 20-25 minutes for the evening classes, cause those are 1.5 hours.

    The reason you hear heavy breathing is cause some of the guys are a little heavier and need to get into better shape.

    We switch off between different types of exercises sometimes so as not to fatigue any one muscle group.

    This was just a small excerpt. Some of our other warm ups are more intense! The worst thing that can happen is getting hurt cause your body isnt warmed up thoroughly.

    How do you guys warm up?

    I think some people are confusing "warm up" with "working out".

    Train with enough intensity for long enough, and what others consider a"work out" becomes merely a "warm up."

    Not for me though. :redface:

    Our warmup is pretty much just 5-10 mins max, light run in circle, then stretches. Pretty much exactly how the Academy in Brazil did it except some days they added very light kettle bell warms too.

    Seconded.

    A "warm up" should be exactly that. You're getting the body ready for more strenuous activity, not beating yourself into the ground.

    i agree too. and most of us realize that warmups need to be enough to really challenge the casual bjj practitioner but also truly warm up a veteran.

    our warmup destroys some newer guys but still gets me warmed up. if i really challenged myself, i bet half the people wouldn't maike it 10 minutes.

    keep this in mind.

    Our warm up is about 10-15 minutes, it's a decent little burst of cardio for us guys trying to get into shape. It's just basic calisthenics, some yoga, butterfly stretches and if there is an exercise that helps with what we're going to drill that's shown too.

    You were born in shape?

    Just because someone is not as fit as you may be does not mean they put any less effort than you.

    Someone who decides to make a change and get in shape has demonstrated that he or she is worthy of respect. The only thing you demonstrate with your statement is exactly whats wrong with Martial Arts today, and that is people who dont understand the purpose of training.
