I here a lot of guys throw out that a reason that tmaís are weak is because of a lack of conditioning. I have a little problem with this. I just don't think that arguement holds up. Iím all for being healthy and active and all that, and I like to train hard and sweat, but how much stamina do you really need for most situations?
The only place I feel conditioning really comes into play is during a sport type contest, say UFC, Pride, Boxing, sparring, whatever. If your idea is to be able to beat some guy in the street in some 2 hr slugfest, youíre going way overboard and your style has some serious problems in finishing a confrontation. Do you really need to be able to go all out for more than one minute, or 3, or 5, or 10?
I know more is better, but how much do you think you really need?
