Is Training Just Two Days Per Week A Waste Of Time?


Can you get better at BJJ training only 2 days a week, or are you wasting your time?

This is a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu question I received from Instagram.

The person asking this question is training No Gi BJJ and has a ton of other interests. In general he’s just a fitness fanatic.

Because of all of these other things on his plate. He’s wondering if he’s wasting his time training 2 times a week of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.

In this video I talk about how people mimic the extremes of BJJ like high level competitors. And it’s not in alignment for their goals.

BJJ competitions and grappling competitors are fascinating. And their performances inspire us.

And in turn, we enjoy emulating this style of training. Regardless of whether or not we intend to follow that same path.

And in the the case of the person who asked the question. He has a ton of other goals and interests. So it only makes sense that he would not be as invested into BJJ.

And I try to explain why training twice a week is not a waste of time and how it can even be beneficial for your training because it can create better focus.

If you’re in this situation with you’re training. I hope this video is helpful! Thanks for watching.

And don’t let competitions and the excitement of it shame you or make you feel guilty.
