Intensity in MA training
Ok, so you work out, 1 hour, 2 hours , 25 hours a day 8 days a week, whatever...
BUT, how INTENSE is your workout ??
Can you breath? are you doubled over, puking your salami sandwich ( :) ), do you have a hard time talking ? can you carry on a converation about how much Yak manure accumulates in the Andes mountains? do you even sweat at all you lazy naval lint picker ?!?!?!!^$*$&@* !!
Seriously, the intensity of what we do DICTATES how LONG we can do it for.
Warm ups and cool downs and stretching your foreskin aside, how intense do you work out ?
Heck when I am done my bag routine I am ready to puke out my M&M's !!
And the next day !!! baby, I have a hard time getting out of bed !!

After a Thai pad workout, sparring, groundwork (randori at the end), or Judo workout (randori at the end) I'm exhausted. I'm usually okay after focus mitts or standing grappling work though.

I usually walk out with the last remaining individuals of the class, with a drenched gi.
One of the great things about the second half of a class being open mat is you see who is there to work and who isn't.

At my MT classes, as well as at my WC classes, it varies. When we only practice moves, I usually walk out only with a drenched shirt. When we do bag work, I can barely drag my sore self home (but then again, I am a *****).That civilisation may not sink,
Its great battle lost,
Quiet the dog, tether the pony
To a distant post;
Our master Caesar is in the tent
Where the maps are spread,
His eyes fixed upon nothing,
A hand under his head.

My karate class is about a "6" on a scale of 1-10 on intensity. We refine our punches, kicks, blocks, etc; we hit the mitts and heavybag; we spar lightly and we do calisthenics to finish up class.
My kickboxing class is much more intense. It probably rates an "8" on a scale of 1-10. My legs are usually quivering and I can barely walk. Also, my clothes are all soaked with sweat and I feel like I could pass out.
