    you dont have to workout everyday.

    some schedules just can't accommodate that.

    so pick 1 or 2 workdays a get more sleep the others.

    I mean it's about balance. HIT training, or better explosive and fast work, is always beneficial to an athlete. It's just not a replacement for LISS, but again, it depends on what your sport requires. I wouldn't go as far as to say that HIT is inherently dangerous or anything, just use smart programming. The whole fitness wave of "you can sit on your couch all day and then kill yourself for 10 minutes 3 times a week and be totally healthy!" is misleading as hell though.

    In regards to HIT training for speed? Are you talking work more of a plyometric nature, or power endurance, or actual HIT?

    I definitely think high intensive training is a must for fighting, but being in control of the output during a fight is what really lets you carry energy through the rounds. If we're talking something like wrestling it's a bit different.

    I get what you're saying about mimicking time and intensity of a round in your S&C work. I would probably think about the periodization they are in and what purpose the training has. I think it's a good idea to have blocks of less sport specific workouts when it makes sense. Like for ironing out weaknesses, injury prevention, rehabbing, working on aerobic capacity, working on max strength or whichever.

    Even if you do no general warm-up and zero warm-up sets, that's 18 sets plus a 10-minute circuit.

    So, since that poster said "You can get a good workout in with 15-30 minutes that will work both strength and cardio.", you are saying that you can do 18 work sets of squat/bench/deadlift in 5-20 minutes (while doing no warm-up what-so-ever).

    I thought most people would be able to tell that it was choosing between one of those lifts each day...not all of them.
