Does Your Hamstring Flexibility Suck From BJJ? Fix It With This Technique.

Are your hamstrings notoriously tight from BJJ? This stretch not only dynamically stretches the hamstring musculature but also provided a mobilization to the hip joint which means it gets the hip loosened up as well. The result is better flexibility, better hip mobility, and decreased pain in the hip joint.

How do I treat inner hip pain quickly?

I received a question on Youtube on how to address inner hip/groin pain. I didn’t get much information on the mechanism of injury, how the injury occurred, or how long the pain has been there so this video is meant to encompass just a few of the techniques that can be used. Trial and error will be something to keep in mind as some techniques may be more effective than others. I would start with gentle range of motion and movement in the area to a comfortable range. Gradual progression to stretching exercises. Also do the exercises to comfort and discontinue if pain increases. Seeing a medical professional is always a great idea if symptoms do not improve. I break down a few of the techniques that I have demonstrated throughout some of the videos on the channel and picked the ones that could get some results and improvement. Make sure to think about the body as a whole and not just look at the hip for treatment, but also address the low back as well as the knee for possible dysfunction or causes of pain at the hip.

Try this to relieve hip pain and improve guard retention for BJJ

Pain or difficulty with bringing the knee to the chest when performing guard retention or with general movement of the hip? This technique will not only improve motion but will decrease tension in the hip flexors as well as reduce pain. Use the voodoo band and perform a functional movement and strengthening exercises such as a squat to “trick” the hip into flexion without activating the hip flexor muscles so that way you will not increase your pain. The voodoo band is a great option as it can get into areas such as high into the hip joint more easily. Give it a try!

What is the most dangerous leg lock submission and should you practice it?

What is the most dangerous leg lock submission and should you practice it? Any submission can be dangerous but some can cause more damage than others. Inverted leg locks tend to be more dangerous as the consequences of being in the submission too long can cause serious injury and keep you off the mats. The unique think about inverted leg locks is that they usually are not very painful until the tissue (ligaments or tendons) ruptures causing injury, which is why grapplers feel they are fine but tend to tap when the pain ensues (which is usually too late). You should definitely practice all submissions to know where the dangers are and to also be able to safely apply and defend the techniques.
