    Conditioning routine (for judo)

    I'm looking for a conditioning routine, or a book on conditioning. If it matters I am looking for something to supplement my judo training.

    I've searched the forums but I can't find any threads that really help - lots of people recommending doing conditioning, or recommending a specific exercise, but not much about programs.

    What I would like ideally is something like starting strength, but for fitness/cardio/conditioning. A resource - preferably a book - that sets out a program of exercises to do in order to improve my conditioning. At the moment I run, I do sprints, I do occasional grappling drills but it's all very haphazard and I don't have the know-how to come up with any more detailed plan. What I hope to find is a plan that tells me what I need to do so I can follow it and know I am working on the right things and in a good ratio.

    If anyone can recommend a book or a program to follow that would be fantastic.

    Thanks!

    There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

    BJJ was my initial thought but there seem to be two options: very expensive or 6 month plus contract. Since I'm a student at the moment, and soon going to start work, neither is really possible for me unfortunately.

    I had overlooked crossfit. Looking into it though it looks like if I just did the WOD I would have the same problem as if I picked exercises myself: I would end up doing exercises pretty much at random. Perhaps that would be solved if I could join a crossfit gym but unfortunately there isn't one near me.

    If anyone knows of a structured conditioning program I would still love to hear about it.

    I posted this in another thread in which the TS had asked the same question:

    Pick up some kettle bells, pushups/hindu pushups, sprawls, burpess, hindu squats, sit throughs, forwards rolls, backword rolls (both from knees) sit ups, crunches, russian twists and turkish get ups.

    Pushups: 10x3
    Hindu Pushups: 10x3
    Sprawls: however many you can do in 2 minutesx 3
    Burpees: ""
    The rolls: Go around a room one or twice.(if you can't do the rolls because of carpet, forget
    it)
    Sit throughs:as many as you can do for 2 mintues x3 (a one count is both sides)
    Situps: 20x3
    Crunches 50x2
    Russian Twists: 30x3
    Hindu Squats: I do 40x3... but whatever you can do x3?
    Turkish get ups: 5x3

    Kettlebells:
    Swing: 15x3
    Snatch:15x3
    Snatch/press: 15x3

    Make sure that there is little or no rest in between sets and only allow yourself 30-60 seconds of rest between exercises.

    Answer depends on your level of Judo i.e kyu grade, dan grade, 1st kyu starting to get competitive etc...

    Also what you want to achieve from the conditioning programme- general fitness, fitness for contest, better explosiveness etc...

    Thanks for the reply. I'm pretty much a complete beginner - yellow belt. I'm looking primarily to increase my cardio and explosiveness.

    I talked to my coach who suggested running and box-jumps. I'm wondering about strength training though - I would like to develop more explosive power and from what I've read (primarily in Starting Strength) you need a good base of strength before you can effectively train for power.

    I like ^^^THIS^^^
    it's real sexy!
    with more reps/sets, varied active/rest tempos, & variations for increased leverage, that list should keep you busy for years.

    We're in the age of the home workout! P90X & Beach INSANITY are all the rage. Ross Enamait & Body By Fish are out there kicking ass.... get some bands, sandbags, & kettlebells, a GYMBOSS, & do it yourself!

    ***Was this quote "taken out of context"?***

    "The judoist has no time to allow himself a margin for error, especially in a situation upon which his or another person's very life depends...."
