I have just started BJJ training and I am really interested in supplementing my training on mat with some gym work on weekend.
I train BJJ 3 days a week,the days I dont train on workdays I do light kettlebell drills/chin ups/push ups and some abs work at home.
I want to add one day of this workout - Super Squats 20 Rep Squat Routine
and perform it once a week.
What do you think?
Will it be useful?
The twenty-rep squat will help you move up a weight class. It is not a training program dedicated to the development of strength.
If you really want to improve your overall body strength
, stick with Mark Rippetoe's, Bill Starr's, or MadCow's routines.
Jujutsu is one of those things that doesn't really require extreme physical power to be effective. As long as you have a good level of strength and you can grip opponents tightly, you're good to go.
(Just make sure to prioritize any Jujutsu-specific drills ABOVE ALL ELSE.)
Telling a weightlifter that deep squats are bad for the knees is like telling a kickboxer that footwork is a bad strategy...
