The Health Benefits of Learning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
There seems to always be some new fitness/dieting scheme that claims to help improve your health. However, all too often we see that these new methods don’t really work. In fact, it would seem that there is no substitute for clean eating and good ole fashion physical activity. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an amazing physical activity that can improve your health in many areas.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is anaerobic, which means without oxygen, and scientific research has shown that anaerobic activity is the best for maintaining muscle while burning fat. Everyone wants to lose a little fat here and there for aesthetics, if not health reasons. BJJ is also great for developing good movement patterns and flexibility. Grappling requires a lot of hip movement which most people don’t have naturally, but it is a necessity in BJJ that is developed over time. Flexibility is also developed by continually transitioning through all the positions. BJJ requires constant moving, pushing, and pulling which can prevent osteoporosis as well. There is really no limit the health benefits you can receive by training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at Lovato’s.
