Top Five Health & Fitness Benefits For Men Training Jiu-Jitsu

If you are looking for a way to improve your health or get in better shape, you
may not need to hit the gym. Instead, you should check out the fastest growing combat sport in the nation….Brazilian Jiu Jitsu!

It could be the fitness solution that you have been
searching for. 

Discover below some of the benefits of Jiu Jitsu for men’s health.

1. Improve Your Cardiovascular Health

Perhaps the greatest benefit of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is improved heart health.
Any doctor would recommend between 20 and 30 minutes of cardiovascular
exercise 3 to 5 days per week. But if you’re like a lot of men, the thought of lacing up your shows and hitting the street to run sounds torchersome.

Jiu Jitsu will get you up off the couch. With classes that are engaging and fun you will easily hit at least 20-minutes of cardio daily….usually closer to 45-60! 👊 

This gets your blood pumping and puts stress on your heart, allowing you to
increase your heart health. 

With improved heart health also comes a lower risk of heart disease and stroke.


2. A Full Body Workout for Weight Loss and Fitness

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can also provide a complete full body workout, helping with weight loss and overall fitness. You get a high-aerobic workout that targets quite a few different muscle groups.

We’ve had athletes from all different background comment on just how intense of a workout Jiu-Jitsu is.

“I’m actually really sore, but in a good way!”
Each Jiu Jitsu session can help you burn additional calories, while also
increasing your endurance. In fact, a typical hour-long session of Jiu Jitsu can burn about 500 calories. For those trying to lose weight, this could be
all that you need to finally blast the fat in trouble areas, such as your
abdominal region.


3. Improve Your Flexibility and Balance

By practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, you should be able to begin improving your
flexibility and balance. 

You gain a better sense of balance, becoming more in tune with your body.
The various movements that you will learn provide the advantage of
increasing your flexibility, keeping you limber. In a way, this is similar to the
benefits provided by yoga. You are extending your arms and legs, stretching,
and performing aerobic moves that will help with your flexibility.

4. Increase Your Self Esteem with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
As a final benefit from Jiu-Jitsu, you can increase your self-esteem. This
is achieved in multiple ways.

By getting in better shape, you will feel better about your body. By learning
self-defense techniques, you will have more confidence. This combination will
have a tremendous impact on your self-esteem.

5. Gain Improved Focus and Concentration

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is not just about self-defense. You are also learning how to
be in tune with your body. This teaches focus and concentration.
You need to be able to observe your opponent and focus on how you can use
their movement to your advantage. These are skills that carry through to
everyday life, helping you with concentration.
These same benefits that lead to improved focus and concentration can also
increase your mental clarity and leave you in a calm, relaxed mood.
Studies show that a Jiu Jitsu session can release endorphins that
make you happy and content. This lasts for several hours after your workout is complete.
