I recently started taking some Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes and as part of the warm up we do some pretty cool core training exercises that are unique to the sport. I’ve got a pretty strong core (a TGU with 106 lbs. is proof of that) but these three exercises had my core working in some new ways and producing some soreness I hadn’t felt before. Now that I have gotten stronger with them I can feel the difference in how they help me move more efficiently on the mat and on the bike.

One of the best things about these core training exercises is that they require no equipment, just your bodyweight. Bodyweight training is very popular in the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu community because of the need for supreme body control on the mat, which is something we also need on the trail. The No Gym, No Problem Bodyweight Workout Program is the best workout program in the world for the mountain biker who wants to tap into the ride changing power of bodyweight training.
