Why do you train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu? There is probably a multitude of factors involved…
And one of them, probably, is staying/getting in shape. Which is a good thing – because you’re setting yourself up for health and appearance!
Tom DeBlass, for example, is quite critical of men who have come to accept the “dad bod“, instead of working on their health.
Here is what he had to say in a recent social media post, urging men to take initiative:
One of the worst things men have done was accept dad bod.
It’s complete bull.
As we grow older, I encourage everyone to get blood work. Remember, our metabolism slows down as we get older.
Furthermore, the more excess fat we store, the more estrogenic we become, and our metabolism slows drastically.
It doesn’t even have to be “that complicated” to work, either…
Because, just by staying active a little bit, you can already be miles ahead. Even in comparison to when you were younger:
I was 213 lbs this morning. This is the lightest I have walked around since I was 24 years old.
Even when I was fighting at 185, my walk around weight was 215 lbs.
My routine consists of 5 days a week push-ups, bicycle sit-ups, and band work.
Zero weight lifting.
