Kron Gracie is one of the rare Jiu-Jitsu players that has a potential for crossover mainstream success.
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.”
“I have light meals every three hours to keep my energy and metabolism high, all organic and non-GMO. For breakfast I’ll have sprouted-grain toast with almond butter, honey, and coffee. Later, a turkey sandwich with vegetable juice and a ginger shot. Then I might have an acai bowl and almonds. At night I consume as many calories as I can to sustain the next day’s training—pasta, brown rice, chicken—most people do it the other way around, but if I do that, I lose weight.”
“I do breathing exercises nightly, messing with my diaphragm—it’s a muscle, like the biceps. Lungs are bottle-shaped, thin up top and wider below, so with short breaths, only 20 or 30 percent fills. Those gasps are anxiety and fear manifested. My dad taught me breathing as a kid, but I didn’t care then. As I’ve encountered pressure and stress, it’s become part of my life. I can’t not do it. It gets me to a special place with my energy and spirit. That’s a huge part of my performance—the energy I put into breathing.”
