Got some crimes you may have committed in the past? Hmmm?
Why would you not workout legs for the sake of bjj? I started working legs more specifically for that purpose. You likely have a lot more experience than me... but having powerful legs/glutes/hips is a huge benefit in my experience.
Well I'm extremely flexible in my hips and I don't want to limit that flexibility at all.
But the biggest thing is I have lots of trouble with my knees from my HS/college wrestling days. Whenever I work legs, my knees ache for weeks after and I either have to brace them tight or not train at all.
I'm not saying strong legs aren't important in BJJ. They are for sure. But for me, the benefit of leg training just doesn't outweigh what it does to my knees and even my ankles.
My FTP is now over 4 watts/kg
