Guide | 5 Must Have BJJ Supplements

Shake, rattle, then roll; The Grapple Gourmet’s guide to the best BJJ supplements.

If you drink what you should eat, then know what you drink. You often hear the protein shakers start going all at once the second class is over with. Is that the only time of the day to be using your shaker filled with mystery powders ranging from chocolate mint flavors to poison “bubblegum?” No. There is a vast world of supplements out on the market and that is because as we progress in science and technology, we create, and develop a finer tuned catalog of supplements for each purpose. Rather than just having “Protein Powder” we have blends, whey, casein, super pump up uber bulk hope cans with your bare hands powders. What I am saying is there are a million and one different products out there and without knowing which ones truly benefit our training, you are a sailor lost at sea. Well it is time to fire up the lighthouse and show you to the coast of the best supplements to take for BJJ, its pretty important, that’s for shore (see what I did there?) It is not all about getting pumped up anymore, but improving our performance, recovery and overall healthy.

Now that you have your protein powder, first off let me welcome you to the club, welcome. I drink at least two different shakes a day, every day, I wont lie to you, it gets tiring and gross some days. Then I saw articles about a revolutionary way to still get my protein intake but not in liquid form. So just like with BJJ techniques, I would like to share with you what I know with this how to guide. It was a no brainer and right up my alley, cooking with protein powder.

As an athlete of your caliber I am sure you follow some guide line when it comes to eating, what is your normal routine like, lets say meal wise for a typical day, then broader as a typical week?

Stu: I try to keep it simple (KISS principle), I don’t like strict diets. It has to be a lifestyle that you can follow for your entire life.
