BJJ Training Journal - 9/15/20 - Personal Best on my Breath Hold

in #jiujitsulast month


I did four sets yesterday and was super pumped at I hit 3:30 on my final set.

My first two sets went real well so I decided to go for it.

The third set was hard as I just hit 3:00 and I felt like coughing.

In the fourth I tried to relax more and then went for it.

I am only doing 10 breathe ups prior to the hold.

I was super pumped that I was able to hit it.

I did my push ups right after and am up to 180 in four sets.


It sounds like you’re doing something similar to the Wim Hoff method. Are including cold exposure in your routine?

No I am not. The reason why is that I am trying to keep it close to something I can do in martial arts training.

Got it. I don't always do the cold showers or ice baths. But I've been experiencing with combining breath holds with isometrics. I think it translates really well to martial arts.

You will get more readers if you post in Sports Talk Social. You’ll also get curated if you meet certain quality and length requirements. I would like to see more martial arts representation there.
