    Bjj and lifting

    Hi guys

    Looking to start Jui Jitsu next week on the days when I'm not lifting and I'm just wondering if it's likely this would have any effect on muscle gains?

    I know I'll need to eat more to be in a surplus but I'd assume my muscles aren't really recovering as much as they can be when I'm doing something like BJJ on rest days?

    I do know people who do BJJ and have good muscle mass but they already had that when they started it

    Yes, exactly. Comparing it to something else will make a difference. For instance, if you used to lift weights and now you only do BJJ. Power is likely to be lost. BJJ is the perfect choice if you've never trained before. There are many benefits to this.

    In exercising, however, you use many different muscle groups, some of which are not really utilised in weight lifting, for example.

    I just started back at the gym after 10 years going 4-5 days a week. I've been doing BJJ for about 4 years. It really helps with flexibility and you will use a range of muscle groups. Be aware that it is easy to get injured, especially as a new BJJ practitioner. There are going to be people in class that are outright idiots and/or new people that can overdo a technique. It happens. It's fun. It can be frustrating but stay with it.

    it's a trade off, a significant one.

    it's not only the cardio aspect of bjj, it's the amount of damage your body sustains. anyone that has ever had hard rolls against skillful adversaries realizes there is no comparison. it's unpredictable compared to the controlled environment of lifting.

    i lost a significant IMO amount of strength when i began doing bjj4-5 days a week. my joints usually hurt going to the gym, then i hold back even further to not cause additional damage.

    jiu jitsu is great for muscular endurance. i'm sure practitioners who train in here know that when class is over it's easy to stick around another hour rolling not even having realized how fast time goes by. when you're done it's not uncommon to be 4-5 lbs lighter than you were before class.

    if you're preparing for a competition don't lift at all, use all your recovery to sharpen your game and bring up your intensity.

    not everyone is a yoel romero where they can look JACKED and have amazing endurance.

    I recently started going to the gym once again after spending 10 years going 4 to 5 days a week. For the past four years, I have been practicing BJJ. You will use several muscles at the same time, which helps with flexibility. When you are brand new to BJJ, it is easy to injure yourself. In class, there will be people who have no idea what they are doing and/or new people who overdo a technique. Occasionally, it happens. I enjoy it. You may feel frustrated, but keep going.
