Hello Fellow Mellow Pillow!
How y'all doin?
2021 started with many wishes for bright future for many of us and it's been already almost a month!
Unbelievable, isn't it?
And who has been a couch potato out there training Martial Arts or doing any exercise inside of your brain only so that you feel like doing some training/exercise at least?
Well, I am here to share my thoughts and I thought it would be nice and helpful to share what I do at home for Judo training which probably many of you have not yet tried YET will find it super useful, I hope.
I believe simple is the best and more importantly consistency/habit makes who you are, so ONLY 3 to share.
burpee consist of 3 positions where you start on foot to jump --> squat --> plank(and push ups for advanced ones) and come back on foot as one. You can simply try for 10 times and see how much you can do, and then increase the number or multiply the set to your own level.
How I do is when I jump (yeah I start at 6, 7 to 1), I clap my hands, and then squat all the way down to touch the ground and then stretch out both legs to get the plank position (if I fee like energy level is higher, then I do push ups(4) at least once), from there, jump back your feet close to palms then get up to standing position. then Keep going for 50 times.

This one is particularly great for those who want to practice any techniques you are working on usually major front techniques such as Seoi-nage, Uchimata etc for 1.pulling (kuzushi), 2.setting (tsukuri) and of course 3.execution (kake).

The more you practice, Better you get at. HOW SIMPLE IS THAT!
This simple trick is applicable to pretty much anything you would like to be good at. All you need to do is repetition.
Also it is a great way to get muscle memory that you could get the precise form every single time like a robot for perfection.
Especially useful under this circumstance where you cannot get close to others (social distancing?)
And last but not least, pull ups using actual gi (judo gi, jiujitsu gi etc).
Pulling muscle is especially useful in judo or for Judo techniques so any pull ups helps you build the muscle you need to throw people :)
And what's more? by using gi, you get to build grip strength including actual feeling associated with it. Which means it feels much closer to what it really feels like when you are tied up with your opponent or uke. (practice partner)
So it is more efficient comparing to normal pull ups (again any form of pull ups are good tho)
Just be careful not to hit your head when you are up. There's a bar above you. So I would suggest to go up left and right.

Now You know these amazing 3 simple training moves. combine them all to make your own training set.
Here is some sample that you can do.
. Make sure your surroundings are safe and clear.
. Set rubber band and gi hanging on a bar within 6 feet. (6 feet from each move, so 12 feet if there’s enough space)
. Have a timer which you can set some interval so that you can set some rest time between.
Go from burpee x 10 ---> jog to get uchikomi area, Uchikomi x 10 ---> jog to get the pull up area, Pull ups x 6 (3 each side)
(1 min break)
That's it! Mission accomplished 😎
If you think you could go even further, you can simply multiply the set by 2, 3 and 5 as well as increase the numbers of each exercise.
And if you are doing more than 2 sets, you could set the timer for 1~2 mins between the set so you have a chance to catch your breath and do not need to push yourself too hard.
Alright, you would have great amount of exercise by doing just this and keep in shape!
By the way, that's what I do inside of my brain thinking that I'm doing enough training ;)
If you find it helpful, give me a thumbs up👍🏻
