In the jiu-jitsu world, awareness of the importance of health and fitness is paramount. Professional jiu-jitsu athletes are some of the fittest you will ever find, along with MMA fighters. But even the recreationalist is constantly monitoring his diet and activities - this is the beauty of jiu-jitsu - it pulls you into a lifestyle that is so positive for you - it doesn't matter if you're a pro black belt competitor or a white belt. In this lifestyle, we try to find the most efficient ways possible to stay healthy and keep our ground game sharp.
Below is a video that we found to be very helpful and well put together. It presents us with 5 different types of smoothies that are quick and easy to make. The great thing about smoothies is that they are the perfect snack for an athlete that's in a rush - especially if you're a professional, working full time, that still makes time for his training sessions. This means you have to keep your nutrition on point in order to have energy for everything you do. So check it out - it'll also be delicious!
