    I've been doing LISS jogging (almost always +50 minutes) for about a month, how do I know if I should start doing glycolitic training now? (I was thinking of 400 medium paced intervals and supersets/circuits in the gym)

    You're likely complicating things. But a few days a week of roadwork, some strength training, lots and lots of MMAing, and you should be good.

    A lot of the drills and workouts in MMA are anaerobic by nature. Have you felt any improvement from the LISS workouts? What's your MMA and S&C schedule like during the week?

    Glycolytic work should be as sport specific as possible.

    If you can't do your glycolytic work via MMA-related drills/training, crossfit-type work (which combines various upper/lower/full body motor patterns) would probably be preferable to something like 400m intervals.

    What these guys said.

    Personally after a block(s) (6-12 ) weeks of pure liss I usually notice my RHR in the low 50s or below and my heart rate decreasing quick during activity and having too put in much more effort that I original had to get my heart rate up. Then and there I usually make the transition for more higher intensity stuff and keep the light days as means of active recovery.

    So, I should keep doing LISS? My RHR is nowhere near 50. And for glycolytic work, kickboxing drills? I don't do MMA currently.

    Just keep it basic and simple

    2-3x LISS
    1-2x lifting

    The rest, all specific work.
