You train hard, but do you train as hard as 2016 Judo Olympic silver medalist and BJJ Black Belt Travis Stevens?

Travis Stevens is probably the hardest working judoka around…

Travis Stevens aka ‘The Judo Silencer’ is a judoka from the United States who competed in 2008 Olympics. He participated in the 2012 Summer Olympics, losing against the previous winner of the 2008 Summer Olympics, Ole Bischof, in the semi-finals by judges’ decision and was then beaten in the bronze medal match by Canada’s Antoine Valois-Fortier. Travis has defeated Judo legend and Ne Waza king Flavio Canto. Travis also holds a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under John Danaher. Danaher rewarded Stevens his black belt on November 19, 2013.

Stevens has been vocal in the past about his views on Crossfit. Check out this article “I’m an Olympian and I will Never Do Crossft” where he says exactly why he felt that it was a waste of time for him.

In his interview with Jiu-Jitsu Style Magazine, Stevens details his typical training week. You won’t believe how much he trains!

 

“JJS: Could you talk us through a typical week of training? How many sessions, any strength and conditioning and rehabilitation work?

TRAVIS: I guess the easiest way to do this is to make a timetable of my training week:

Monday:
7:15-8:15 nogi BJJ

10:30-12 judo

12:30-1:45 running and sprints

2-3:30 lifting

The Friday options depend on my schedule. When I was getting ready for Copa Podio I used option two. If John (Danaher) asks me to help out in the city to get one of the fighters ready I use option two as well. Otherwise I stick to option one and drive to NYC right after BJJ at 9.”
