Stretching for BJJ Practitioners

Here are some of my favorite stretches for BJJ training.  I’m no “yogi”, but these are the stretches that I have found that work best for me.  I like to base my stretching routine on three components:  1.  My BJJ game (preferences), 2.  Body size, 3.  Injuries or limitations.  For me being a smaller practitioner (155 lbs) I tend to get stacked on my neck quite a bit (especially because I prefer triangle chokes).  Therefore when I stretch I like to do a lot of neck and spine stretches.  I also like my stretching movements to mimic my game (triangles / omoplatas / explosive movements).  I tend to favor stretches that look and feel close to these submissions.  Give them a try and as always -Happy Training Ninjas!
