Lose Fat w/o Getting Weak | Exercises for Judo | More LBP [ASK ERIC]

In today’s QnA video, I answer the following questions:

1. I’m a judo/bjj athlete. What are some effective ways and principles for developing speed for throws and takedowns?

– Matt Hammond, UK [00:44]

2. I suffer from lower back spasms from time to time.  As I write this my back decided to have an episode as I was getting ready for work.

Do you recommend any exercises to help strengthen the back?

I’m starting to think I won’t be able to practice BJJ or kickboxing anymore at my young age of 40 🙂 – Ryan Mangila, US [06:28]

3. I’ve read that using an elliptical machine for cardio hinders flexibility due to not using full range of motion.

Do you agree with that? – James Theros, USA [10:19]

4. I want to lose fat so I am doing alot of circuit training, and some of your cage cardio circuits but I don’t want to get weak while I am doing it. What do you recommend? – Mike M, Canada [13:12]

5. Can I add this the new CAGE Cardio workouts to the MMA Strength and Conditioning workout? – Derek Ng [14:33]

If you’ve got a question about training for MMA or martial arts, nutrition, injuries or anything else that you’d like me to answer in a future QnA video, submit it here.

I recently started Judo and plan on working the seio nage throw drill that you showed with the band and medicine ball into my gym routine.

I do Hip Flexibility Solution since a fiew weeks and I have back pain, so its not working.
HFS didn’t help me ,still I even cannot do a fiew exescises with very proper technique, because of tight back and hips . Cage cardio also does not look serious, level like for pocket fighters, sorry, if it sounds malicious, I’m just disappointed.
