If a person is larger than their opponent then any advantages are through physical conditioning or better technique or skills.

competition – lay on a bench that has a bar on it now whil e you are in this position instead of picking the bar up and l owering it for a bench press – pull yourself UP to the bar whil e keeping your body straight. This is similar to a motion where you are pulling a person into your guard or you are performing a sweep. To increase the strength of your core muscl es – PLANKING – is a good exercise – simply lay with your face to the mat prop your upper body on your elbows and lift your hips from the mat so only your elbows and toes are touching the mat – with your whol e body straight hol d for 30 seconds and repeat 2-3 times. If you want to strengthen the muscl es you will need to keep someone in your guard you will need the help of a training partner. To achieve this have your partner stand in a wid e stabl e base grip each other to help support yourself. As you are hol ding yourself up with this grip jump and wrap your l egs around your standing partners waist then cross your ankl es to l ock in that guard position. Hol d this position as l ong as you can. Repeat the exercise a few more times and then swap places with your partner. Remember to always keep your Brazilian Jiu Jitsu exercises varied and enjoyabl e.
