Do You Have Any Questions?

As we start class, after each technique is demonstrated and after the final strength and conditioning exercises… you’ll hear that question all the time in the gym. Becoming a true martial artist requires more than blindly mimicking what you see the instructor and other students doing; sure you’ll get a great workout, and maybe that’s enough for now, but you’ll never really learn and truly understand the martial arts if you don’t critically think about what you are doing and why you’re doing it. This starts by asking questions.

In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/BJJ, Thai Kickboxing and Filipino Jiu-Jitsu, there is a reason for everything — every position, every movement, everything has a purpose.  An instructor’s job is to show you how to properly execute a technique for maximum effectiveness — a student’s job is to learn the technique and then think how to properly apply it.  Too often a student learns a new technique without truly understanding how it can be applied; they try it once, it doesn’t work and they never use it again — a few questions and a couple of minor changes could have easily made that technique work.  So, next time you are wondering how our why we do something, speak up… you never know, the answer might make a huge difference in your game.  At the very least, someone else might have the same question.

If you are one of the people who skip warming up before starting class; here are a few reasons why warming up before strenuous workouts is so important.

When you warm up for at least 10 minutes before doing any activity such as: Thai Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), Filipino Jiu-Jitsu or Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), there are at least four key benefits to a more product-full workout.

Improve Elasticity-  When you warm up your muscles, you are improving their flexibility.  It will reduce your risk of injuring or pulling a muscle if they have enough elasticity to move about during your workout.

Increase Circulation-  When you warm up, your body sends more oxygenated blood to your muscles.  This will help your blood pressure stay consistent and improves the movement of your limbs.

Reduces Fatigue During Workout-  You will get you through a workout whether you warm up or not, but you probably won’t get as far, run as fast or be able to push through that intense workout video as easily if you aren’t warming up before your workout. Indeed, you can get through a longer, more intense workout without feeling the pain if you get your body ready for it.

Gain More Muscle Control- You might find it hard to perform some kicks in Thai Kickboxing, or roll as effectively in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu(BJJ).  This could be due to muscle control, and getting your body to do what your mind tells it to do. When your muscles aren’t warmed up, they’re rusty and therefore cannot perform the tasks you are telling them to easily. This is yet another huge benefit of warming up before any physical activity.

Warm ups are meant to do exactly that-they warm up your muscles by increasing muscle temperature.  This increases the speed of muscle contraction, blood and nutrient flow to the muscles.   All of which increase the performance of your muscles giving you a much more intense and effective workout.
