Can Building Muscle Actually Hurt Your Jiu-Jitsu Game?

Strength, one of the attributes that most BJJ athletes are actively trying to improve upon. An attribute that is required to be at decent levels at least when we’re talking about competitions and, generally, the more you have, the better your chances in competitions and sparring. However, is it always a good thing to have it? Is it always a good thing to use it to its maximum?

There are several ways to build strength without putting on muscle:
1. Lift for strength, Lift heavy and with lower reps

2. Lift Explosively and use Olympic lifts

3. Eat lean, eat well

4. Train a lot of Jiu-Jitsu and train with heavyweights

5. Sprint
