    Hi Guys and Gals

    What exercises do you do for fitness and making yourself last the extra round for a fight?

    I really struggle with running, i hate it. i really loose motivation and i find it extremely hard on my knees.

    Anything i can do without going on a 5km run everyday?

    Thanks

    Mike

    Rounds on the bag, high intensity, circuits etc. Running is my last choice.

    This morning it was raining, so I did a circuit for LISS. 15 minutes on the treadmill, 15 minutes on the airdyne, and 15 minutes on the C2 rower. HR was kept between 140-150bpm. If I didn't want to run I could have skipped, biked, gone on the crosstrainer, or anything else. I used to enjoy using the stair climber at my gym, that was always good for getting a sweat on.

    You can do anything as long as you keep moving.

    Thanks for the reply guys,

    I do KB swings weeks before I compete in BJJ, not as good as a complete routine I guess but it helps with my grip and general fitness.

    If you plan on weighing 75lbs over your weigh class, or just straight give up during a fight, then feel free to follow this advice.

    Try jumping rope. Takes a couple tries to get the groove but it has a really high burn rate and as a bonus it will help with your footwork and coordination... there's a reason all top boxers are jump rope ninjas

    The best way to train for fighting rounds is by fighting rounds. You can do some full body HIIT training for the same time frames you would fight to increase your cardio. So if you're doing 10 rounds of 2 minutes in your fights, you might consider doing that as jumping rope while increasing your rate each time. There's nothing that's going to get you as ready as actual sparring though.
