I have been searching for a bit now, and skimmed through the 74 pages for about an hour on the conditioning thread. And it seemes like no one can really give an answer, Basically i have been MMA training for 2years now. and i just had my 4th fight. my first 3 went well and lasted under 1:30 i just had my 4th fight, and it went the distance.. i won first round, and gassed misserably in the 2nd and somehow made it out of the 3rd. it was my first loss all do to fatique:icon_sad: .i only do 9min fights. at first i couldn't understand for the life of me why i gassed. I trained 4times a week, twice daily, for 4weeks.. however i just learned about aerobic, and anerobic cardio training.. I completely left out the aerobic training, or LSD. i was always training at a high pace, getting heart rate up to 180-185 for maybe 2-4 min. 2ith 5-10 min break! reading searching this forum for a few hours i have learned about the importance of LSD.. i know it's sad 2years of MMA training, and i am a cardio noOb! haha anyway, as much as i have learned through browsing, i still would like to see a 4week break down of exactly what i should do to beable to be in top notch cardio shape for a 3rd 3min fight. the only thing i came across by browsing is one member saying, to do LSD the first 3weeks, and last week do anerobic, such as latters,burpees,sprint etc... something to get the MHR at 90% for 20-30sec with 1 min br3eak. Nobody else responded to his post, so looking for some feedback if this is a good way of training.. and is 4weeks really necessary to prepare for a 9 min fight?
