BJJ Injuries and Recovery: The “Danger Zone” of Almost Feeling 100%

There’s a “danger zone” if you will in BJJ, which I’m sure we’re all familiar with: it’s that point where you are feeling better- a whole lot better in fact. You feel like you could possibly train like you normally would and then BAM! You’ve set your recovery back a few weeks because you did something you shouldn’t have.

It’s always tricky, being in that space where you come back from an injury, you start to feel great and so then you convince yourself that it’s ok to turn up the intensity. While you may feel ok, your body/ whatever part of it you happened to have injured may not be up to the task just yet.

It’s frustrating, I know, but it really is beneficial to take your time getting back to full intensity with training. Don’t think of it as holding yourself back, but rather investing in your future: the more you allow an injury to heal now, the less you will set yourself back and prolong the injury.

That’s all for today folks- have a great day everyone!

  1. So true. Unfortunately it’s not just BJJ either! With striking arts it’s possibly even more tempting to go full force too.
