Useful MMA Training Apps for Lockdown

I’ve done posts in the past about some of the freebies available during the lockdown as well as apps you can use to support your training. So with the current situation, I thought it was time to share my suggestions of apps to help your training during any COVID lockdown period.

You're spoilt for choice here as a lot of instructors are [live-streamed] classes( But you also have apps such as a down dog (which had great content but I found the narration a little annoying) as a well as Yoga for Adrianne on YouTube. Personally I’ve stuck with Yoga for BJJ simply for the balance of yoga content, bjj practicality and for Sebastian unique style of wisdom over spirituality! If you use my affiliate link then you can get a 30 day free trial (and I’ll get a bonus trial myself).

Running is also a crowded market on the apps view point. Strava is my run tracking app of choice as it simply tracks what I do really well. But zombies, run! is also great for motivation. Finally don’t dismiss the NHS couch to 5k app to give you a hand getting started and building up your mileage.

Fitness classes

I’ve not gone down the circuit route as a number of my online judo classes contain circuits in disguise. But I have consider the Nike Training App as it's not only free but appears to have a great range of content. As well as Camp Fit as who can’t love free 80s style aerobics designed for cramped living rooms!

BJJ Technical content

I blogged previously about technical resources at the moment but some mobile friendly ones include the Grapplers Guide, BJJ Fanatics, Digitsu and of course my hubby’s favourite Keenan Online!

Money Saving

A long time ago I mentioned how I used money saving apps to support by BJJ training, Well with lockdown its great time to start using apps to help with your online shopping as well as other things! TopCashback has been part of my money saving for a number of years getting cash back online shopping and takeaways that I was buying anyway! I also use OnePulse for their quick payable apps, Shoppix to earn money from my shopping receipts and even Mistplay for whilst playing games on my phone!

Other apps that deserve a mention too are My Fitness Pal) as part of the battle against the lockdown bulge. Also a tabeta timer is helpful when planning your own workouts. Marune which I’ve used to track my BJJ training now also has a fitness element that is also dead useful to keep track of anything you can do at the moment.

I hope you find some of these suggestions or apps useful. Feel free to let me know your favourite or any that I’ve missed!
