Travis Stevens is probably the hardest working judoka around…

Stevens has said that he trains up to 6 times a day!
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.
Strength training has been a key factor to my success in grappling. I have heard that some people feel that strength doesn’t matter and it’s purely technique and you don’t need it. I would highly disagree. I do know the difference from weight lifting for muscle building, endurance, and also recovery! All of which are considered weight lifting. Even during that last part of my career I spend 7 days a week in the gym for at least 1 hr. It’s important for just a healthy lifestyle. Thats why FUJI Fit exist. To show everyone all the different things I used to help me fight through three Olympic Games. Make sure you visit the website it’s completely free!! .
