Kron Gracie is one of the rare Jiu-Jitsu players that has a potential for crossover mainstream success.
On this episode of FUEL (Vice) Kron Gracie talks about how he’s been meat-free for more than a year.
Kron relies on light, natural snacks and lots of liquids to power himself through daily mini-triathlons, followed by hours of leading his students through jiu-jitsu training—all before eating his first solid meal.
In a recent article in Details Magazine, intitled ‘How I Got My Body’, Kron details his training regimen and his diet:
“I teach two hours every day, Monday through Friday, at my academy, Kron Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in Los Angeles. After the lessons, I do an hour of jujitsu sparring, then MMA training, which is more self- defense—I must be ready for any kind of punch. I like to get outside, be in nature, jump in the ocean, so I do an hour run, a two-hour bike ride, or a 40-minute swim. I warm up with 100 pull-ups and 100 dips. Two days a week, instead of cardio I have a second two-hour jujitsu session. I do less weight training than people think. In the past year, I’ve lifted weights maybe three times. It’s all push-ups, pull-ups, jiujitsu.”
