Andre Galvao is one of the most dominant jiujitsu athletes in the world.
Technical, strong and powerful.
In this video, he gives us some insight into one of his strength workouts and discusses the benefits of building a strong back, arms and grip.
*While this video shows Andre using partial range of motion to simulate specific situations, we recommend using the full range of motion during the majority of your strength work.
My background includes 23 years of service in the U.S. Navy, with 18 as a Navy SEAL. I was also a Navy SEAL Instructor in the Naval Special Warfare Physical Training Center in Coronado, California and trained the men in BUD/S who would go on to become SEALs. Therefore, I understand what it means to take people to the top, challenging their physical strength, muscle endurance, aerobic and anaerobic capabilities, as well as increasing mental toughness through a winning mindset.
