Turns Out, "Just Roll More" Isn't Good Conditioning Advice
A Conditioning Program To Dominate The Mats!
I felt great at open mat! Wasn’t tired at all after 5 rounds, made everyone else gas out and tapped them. I'm gonna be 42 next year and still keep up with the 20 year olds.
If You'd Love To Reach The Final Round Feeling Fresher Than A Daisy, Then This Will Be The Most Life-Changing Message You've Ever Read.
I used to think you could just roll more... spend more time on the mats drilling...
Do some hard interval style training (because that's what the "experts" say right?...)
And then you'll have cardio to kick ass!
I went into my first match of the day at the IBJJF Austin Open... which I won.
So far so good... however, I felt like I had to stumble off the mats.
I was shocked.
I could easily roll multiple rounds in training.
But after this first round in competition, I was gassed!
I couldn't fully recover in time for my second match, and I was at the mercy of my cardio...
Which led me to re-evaluate everything I knew about conditioning for grappling.
The Solution? Prioritizing Low Intensity Aerobic Training
It sounds counter-intuitive. Why should you spend all this time doing easy cardio when grappling is intense!

What Makes This Program Unique?
Developed By An International Level Strength & Conditioning Coach
I have been worked in three different countries at the professional and International level of elite sport. Through years of experience, trial and error, and hours of research, I have developed a winning training strategy that will transfer directly to your grappling performance.
Built So You Can Train Regardless Of The Time You Have
With the amount of training many grapplers do, some simply won't perform extra conditioning as there just isn't any time. I get that. I've solved this problem by providing conditioning programs for time poor grappler that train often and also for those that can dedicate extra sessions purely for conditioning.
Scientifically Proven Strategies To Enhance Your Cardio
Did you know that high-intensity interval training will only improve your cardio for about 4 weeks? Did you know training at high heart rates all the time is likely to cause you to gas out when competing in grappling tournaments? This program dives deep into targeting specific adaptations that will give you the biggest, baddest gas tank.

3-Days A Week Conditioning Program
The busy grappler will tack on shorter conditioning sessions after their grappling training. Those who have the time can perform dedicated conditioning sessions. Both type of athlete is catered for.
Any level of grappler can benefit from this. As you have options between specific and non-specific conditioning modalities, the beginner can top up their technical training by conditioning using specific means. While the high-level grappler may opt for some non-specific conditioning modalities to give themselves a break from the repetitive technical training.
Yes, you don't need to compete to benefit. This conditioning program will get you awesome shape for your grappling training.
This program was specifically designed for the grappling athlete. I have other conditioning programs for striking and MMA based martial arts.
100%. I've designed this knowing full well that grappling athletes have a lot to cover in their training week.
Most of the training is performed using no equipment except for your training mats. Some methods will require some cardio equipment but there are work arounds.
