Im new to the forums. Been looking through for info on Grappling Endurance but havent found too much. I may not be looking hard enough.
Im after peoples opinions on how to build grappling stamina.
Ive taken up BJJ/MMA and am having a tough time with endurance. More specifically, escaping mount etc.
After a few minutes hard wrestling, I find that by the time ive managed to escape mount, ive lost the will to push for a controlling position. Both mentally and physically. Which results in me spending alot of time on my back. (a very unpleasant place to be)
Its not my cardio, as i do alot of cycling.
It seems to be muscle endurance and will power. (laziness)
Does anyone have any suggested training or routines that would benefit this. Other than just more grappling . Which i do currently.
Are high rep weight sessions a good option?
Gimmie anything. I tired of getting owned on the mat. time for some hardcore training and pay back.
