I like to combine crossfit style workouts with my jiu jitsu training. I do this mostly for efficiency. Doing functional fitness/crossfit style workouts means I can get a strength and cardio training into one. I really hate long cardio sessions and a 5K is about the longest distance I will run. In the past I would run half marathons and 10ks several times a year but I wasn’t developing the type of body or strength necessary to do my job or help me excel at BJJ. So I started switching to crossfit type workouts on my non BJJ training days and I noticed an immediate improvement in my fight cardio and strength after just a few weeks.

He recently offered some advice on how to incorporate Crossfit for the BJJ athlete and it was some pretty good advice.
