The Chewjitsu Podcast

Mar 6, 2023

On this episode of the podcast, we are joined by strength, nutrition, and lifestyle coach Eli Coffey and introduce Eli and Chewy’s new strength and hypertrophy training program for Jiu-Jitsu athletes called “Swole & Roll.”

Eli is a WBFF Pro Muscle Model, holds state and national bench press records, and is a black belt in Japanese Jujitsu.

On this episode, Eli discusses his start in martial arts and how an injury during martial arts competition led him to strength training and body building. Eli discusses how severe arthritis in his shoulders forced him to adjust his weight-lifting, how to get the most out of training when you are injured, how to adjust your diet for weight loss, why strength training is the basis for fat loss, how much protein you should consume for your body, Eli’s first bodybuilding show, the importance of having a coach, what to eat before and after training, and the introduction of Eli and Chewy’s new “Swoll & Roll” strength training program for BJJ.
