When you make the decision and begin your journey to train Jiu Jitsu in El Cajon, you also begin your journey to obtain a lifestyle of body, mind and spiritual balance. There are many aspects that go into achieving this balance to compliment your Jiu Jitsu on the mat.
Having a healthy sleep and rest pattern is essential for a well balanced state of mind. You want to have a clear head for clear decisions, and getting enough sleep is a great place to start. This also goes with you on to the mat when training BJJ, having a good rest pattern allows your body to recharge and allows muscles to build between trainings.
Eating a healthy diet is very important for your energy level, heart health, nutrition for your whole body, and your brain. Eating lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole foods, and drinking lots of water will improve your conditioning and overall well being. Jiu Jitsu in El Cajon does not support bad eating habits, avoid fried food, fats & oils, sugar filled sweets, fast food, too much dairy products and boxed or canned food. Remember the longer the shelf life, the less life it is giving you, I once heard: the outside aisles at the grocery store are the healthiest and the more you go towards the middle the less healthy the food gets (frozen, non-fresh food). Jiu Jitsu in El Cajon will be happy to guide and support you in a healthy diet supporting your BJJ lifestyle.
You cannot rely on Jiu Jitsu in El Cajon alone to get all your body needs to be well rounded. There are many things you can do at home or in a gym to compliment your work out routine for Jiu Jitsu. Swimming, pilates, and yoga are some of the ways to open up your body and become more flexible. Running, and strength training will help your cardio and energy on the mat as well. Keeping active, having a healthy diet and healthy sleep routine will greatly benefit the way your body, mind and soul reacts to training Jiu Jitsu in El Cajon.
