    I don't understand any of what's going on in this thread.

    1 mile- certainly sub 6 minutes if I wanted to feel like dying, but I don't enjoy that feeling very much.

    5k- I can do in 20 minutes quite readily (although very uncomfortably).

    10k- Never ran that fucking far in my life.

    Took my resting heart rate before I did my LISS at the gym today, and I got as low as 50bpm while sitting down on the couch for a few minutes.

    Best mile time is about 6:20

    Never bothered to run further than that while timed. I hate running

    TS, when posting on this forum it is important to ask: 1) Who trains in martial arts actively (i.e, 4+ days a week), 2) who trains fighters, 3) who fights. From my experience on this forum (before the merge), most posters are Powerlifters who enjoy watching the sport or dabbling in a class or two a week for fun.

    Your question would be better asked on the Grappling or Kickboxing forums.

    I asked Frankie Edgar recently if he does any long distance running and he said he does zero roadwork.

    I thought he was joking, considering he has some of the best cardio in MMA.

    I'm sure some of you have seen the circuit work Edgar does for training



    Generally I see a correlation between guys with great mma cardio and guys who bust their ass doing form of cardio whether it's high intensity circuits or triathlons.

    A better and more relevant question would have been: do you do any low-intensity steady-state conditioning work? There are other ways to develop aerobic capacity aside from roadwork.

    No offense but most S&C questions that are asked in the standup forum have horseshit responses from people who understand fighting but don't understand how the human body works.

    Have no idea. But 40-45 minutes on 10k run would be something I'd imagine they run at the very least.
    My best is just a few minutes shy of an hour :/
