    Hey Chewy, you mention that you eventually hit a point of diminishing return with strength training. Obviously at the elite level where you hit that is probably very individualized, but for the more average person, do you have any rough ideas on where this is (in terms of the "big three" since that's what most people do, at the very least)? I've read for MMA competitors that a rough rule of thumb is something like 1.5x BW bench, 2x BW squat, and 2.5xBW deadlift (maybe adjusted as your BW goes up in weight, since P4P strength usually decreases with BW). What are your thoughts for BJJ?

    Using caffeine after training is one of the worst things you can do. You're tired after training for a reason.. you shouldnt fuck up your recovery like that.

    This is my current struggle. I was doing Jiu-Jitsu in my teens, then got into bodybuilding for years and years, even became competitive. Now I've started some BJJ again in my mid 30's and trying to maintain my lifting, and it's HARD man.

    Anyway to gain increased stamina for rolling that's closer to actual rolling than plain cardio?

    Been wondering about using heavy sandbags/punchbags and doing some timed improvised 'rounds' of 3-5 minutes…

    Hey Chewy I saw in you pod cast that you had patella tendinitis. I have been recently diagnosed with it in both knees and was wondering what you did to take care of it. I am 41 and have been training Jiu-Jitsu for 10 months and it causes issues with a lot of moves. Any help would be much appreciated.

    It took me ages to find a weight training program that complimented my jiu jitsu rather than hindered it. For anyone struggling this format is taken from Elliot Hulse and Chris Barnard's in season style templates.

    Lower Day
    Power clean – 5×2
    Deadlift 3×3
    Front squat 2×8 supersetted with Hyperextensions 2×8
    Plank or twists

    Upper Day
    Explosive clap press-ups 4×3
    Bench 3×3
    Incline dumbbell press 2×8 supersetted with any row or chin-ups 2×8
    Plank or twists

    These should take you less than an hour and will maintain your strength/muscle mass and prevent injuries and shouldn't tax you enough to seriously drain your energy for sport. This is definitely for someone who is already at a good strength level and isn't looking to move heavier weights each week, for me this is pure maintenance and my focus is improving in BJJ. Hope some people can take something positive away from this program. Best D

    For any absolute beginners out there to weight training – start with Stronglifts 5×5.

    i recommend a minimalistic strength training protocol, as it is meant to supplement the primary training and not exert too much. Chins for the upper body (especially with a towel) and pistol squats for the lower body is super functional and definitely enough for a bjj practitioner! (If you need a core exercise then throw in side plank)

    The Eugene comment is classic! LOL!! When I snapped the tendon in my finger a few weeks ago I asked Eugene about it and he told me to take time off, etc…I planned on following his advice for about half a day but decided not to (nothing personal Eugene if you're reading this!). I have a tournament coming up so I haven't skipped a day. I just buddy tape the finger to the next one and train. I have the finger in a splint when I am not doing bjj or lifting.

    Can you do a video on mount attacks after you walk the hand up and isolate it. I usually go for a head and arm triangle, but it’s not always available. You made a past video saying you like the position so I was hoping you could do a video on it, if so much thanks.

    Great video. Can you share the lifting plan or point me to a meniscus safe routine? I’ve had 2 surgeries on the same knee for meniscus and I’m overly cautious.
