What Will You Learn?
Ricky Lundell is one of the world’s best strength and conditioning coaches when it comes to grappling performance. He’s spent a lifetime on the mats and in the gym, and he has worked hard to understand how one workout can help the other. Now, this 4th degree black belt (the youngest American black belt EVER under the Gracie family) shows the consistent fundamentals and workouts that build real grappling strength, mobility, and functional power. With Ricky’s brand new instructional series and ebook, learn the skills behind strength and open up your possibilities on the mat and in your day-to-day life.
Ricky’s 1% Better Every Day Movement is based in how anyone can be taking consistent steps towards their goals every day. You can be a grappler who is constantly adding to their own successes and improvements, all while building the discipline that comes with a commitment like this. Ricky Lundell is partnering with us to release his new 4-volume instructional series based around the snatch, clean, and squat, complete with a ebook that will help you track your lifting technique and make everything as simple as possible. Learn how to lift the right way, from one of the best coaches in the game.
It can be a pretty frustrating feeling to see a move that you just can’t do because your body won’t let you. Maybe it’s playing a more dynamic guard, or using your weight and pressure from top to pass, but when we are on the mat we are using our bodies to implement our game plans and techniques. This means that before you can control someone else’s body, you have to control your own! You’ll get video instruction on how to make these adjustments, and a handy ebook that offers you a visual guide you can keep referring back to while you are in the gym.
Across each of the four volumes, see the major exercises that every grappler needs to reach their highest potentials, and hear from Ricky as he explains in easy to understand detail exactly why this movement is perfect for grappling. Based around the snatch, the clean, and the squat, Lundell’s system is made to improve those major muscle controls that a lot of people ignore. Ricky doesn’t just show a lift and expect you to hit the ground running, he takes you step by step on how to start introducing these exercises to the body the right way (with stretching and specific warm-ups), then how you can load weight safely to your workout, and how to react once your muscles reach failure.
The snatch and clean are both full body movements, where you are pulling and loading the weight up your body before stabilizing and controlling it at its highest point. You add stability, explosion, coordination, and attention to technique together to create a lift that is perfect for grappling and fighting. Just like when you are on the mat, this is about teaching your body to move the right way, and you can learn it like any other technique, especially with a great coach like Ricky giving his expertise.
Even if you have never been a regular at your local gym, this series can be a great starting point! Ricky is a big believer in building a strong foundation, which includes telling you all the equipment you’ll need to get started on this journey. You can get all the inside tips on how to safely add, take off, and adjust your bars, and (maybe most importantly) how to safely fail and get the weight off of you when your muscles are too tired to continue. By keeping yourself safe, you can keep that consistency that the 1% Better Every Day Movement lives on!
What Is 1% Better?
A big, explosive movement like a power clean takes a lot of knowledge, which is why Ricky is here, to teach and share his wisdom! This is one of our most detailed exercise instructional videos ever, and that is thanks to Ricky’s unique pedigree and accomplishments, and his experience as a coach. Instead of struggling (and failing) to activate the muscles in your back and arms, find out how to lift with the legs and your core, more efficiently using your motion to create power. Something you will hear Ricky come back to a lot is the idea of symmetry: by lifting as one, you are growing stronger as one, without any major imbalances that can cause problems later on.
We are constantly in combat, breaking down our bodies, but most of us don’t take the time to build our bodies back up! Soon, injuries can start, and your overall level is moving in the wrong direction. In fact, it happened to Ricky Lundell himself! After years of grappling, he was faced with the same back pains that so many grapplers have, but instead of accepting it, he found the ways he could fix his body through better corrective movement in the gym. Instead of falling down that familiar path of injury, see some of the exercises and stretches that Ricky uses to warm up his body (and see why a steel bar may just be your best friend).
It’s really rare to get a strength and conditioning coach who is as capable on the mats as Ricky is, so take advantage today. When he talks about changing your body to move around the right way (instead of just how to do a move the right way), it can open up whole new worlds of BJJ for you to study and explore. With the ebook you receive with your instructional series, you can start getting into the movement around daily improvement that is growing throughout modern grappling.

After training, studying, and competing internationally, Ricky has found the key lifts that he feels will best help anyone who wants to improve at jiu-jitsu. Starting with Olympic-style lifts like the snatch and the clean, Ricky will walk you through exactly what makes these indispensable, and the exact details on how to lift as efficiently as possible. Don’t risk injury and serious issues by lifting with bad form, get everything you need here before you start a workout with poor form. Once you have learned what the snatch and the clean look like and what they do, you will get into the finer points of the little details that can bring big results in your body, and what bad habits you’ll bring from the mats that you have to break. All of this information is really important, so we are making sure to include Ricky’s very informative book which is a great reference guide in between sets or before you start.
The two most fundamental lifts around the 1% every day system are the front squat and the back squat, the two most important exercises for building functional power. In fact, Ricky is so all in on his own movement that he practices what he preaches and squats every single day. It takes a lot of good form to do a squat the right way, so getting this professional’s guidance before committing to a program is key. By training correctly, and keeping his body balanced, Ricky was able to clear up years of muscular issues that had plagued his back and core, and he is here to impart that same knowledge to you, to either help your ailing back or to prevent it from ever acting up. Those guys in your weight class and above will seem a lot easier to handle once you have built a balanced body that is ready to move!
