With the Covid-19 outbreak spreading throughout the world, many Jiu Jitsu practitioners are having to self isolate at home and at the very least practice social distancing. Many governments throughout the world are putting measures in place to help 'flatten the curve' of the spread of the virus, because of this Jiu Jitsu practitioners are having to find ways to stay active from home.
At Fighters Market Europe we decided to provide you with some home workouts to help you keep active while you self isolate.
We have asked Tim Holmes a former Professional Rugby League Player and Super League Strength and Conditioning Coach to provide us with some home workouts. He now runs “Holmes From Home” a sports performance business looking at athletic movement and development. He is familiar with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and has provided different workouts to keep the practitioner active while in self isolation. Todays workout requires either a dumbbell or a kettlebell, or any house hold item substitute.
This first round is 7 Minutes, do as many as you can in the 7 minutes. Give it your all !
12 x DB/KB Thruster
8 x Burpee
Rest 2 minutes, you've earned it.
Again as many rounds as possible in 7 mins
12 x DB Walking Lunge
8 x Press Up
A 20 minute workout today which you will feel !
Try it out and hopefully it challenges you, if not you can always adjust the numbers of each exercise or take less rest between rounds and let us know how you get on ! Keep checking our Facebook and Blog Page on the Fighters Market Website as we will regularly be posting more workouts to help you get through this difficult period and before long we will be back on the mats training Jiu Jitsu !
Thank You to Tim Holmes of @holmesfromhome for the workout plan
