    Hi Guys,

    I've been grappling for around 4 years now and looking to add some gas to the tank for competitions .

    I lift a few times per week (5/3/1) and train grappling 4/5 , I'm in not bad shape but I feel in comps that I gas quite badly at times( although ive been in quite a few now).

    Ive been looking for a programme to follow and stumbled across ross trainings sequential fatigue programmed. Is this a bit crazy for a beginner( to real conditioning that is), ive tried swimming in the past etc but I want to make a concerted effort to becoming a better athlete .

    Thanks !

    The sequential fatigue challenge will turn you into a machine. You just need to finish the whole 10 rounds. DO NOT STOP NO MATTER WHAT

    If you have competed many time you are not a beginner.

    Thanks dudes , I guess I'm not a beginner per say . But I've never put too much of an effort outside class into conditioning , beginning to realize that it is an absolute asset in gaining an edge . More so that I'm doing sub only comps now ,thank you !!!

    Could you describe this routine? I have a couple of Ross's books but I don't think I'm familiar with this one.

    Edit - Found it online. Looks miserable. I'd line to try it, but since I train on my lunch break at work I don't really have a good area for the sprints. Maybe I can substitute jumping rope, or double up on the burpees.
