They very much are. I have been working on that lately.
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.
Why you gotta show off, man.
I thought we were friends. :icon_sad:
Let me go see what my 1 mile time is, I'll brb.
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.
Yes, is that bad?
Faster than a tortoise. So -no, not bad.
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.
Thanks for that.
What does that mean?
He got me a glass of water to help me clear my throat.
Ah. That went right over my head.
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 :/
