    I train a lot, but due to the nature of what I do, only three or four hours a week are what you would consider to be physically intense. I currently want to increase the amount of hard sparring/rolling that I do, but the majority of what I train will always emphasize physical relaxation (although, to be fair, it does requires every iota of my rather modest mental faculties).

    Ronin: what you said about grappling being easier I think is wrong. It depends on what your body is used too. Grappling uses alot of muscles that arent used that much in striking. Im used to striking but when I grapple once a week afterwards, I feel exhausted! Like I have the flu or something. and no matter how good your striking or grappling endurance is, when u do both together your stamina is cut in half.

    I'd agree it is what you're used to. Grappling initally was far more tiring than stand up ever had been.

    The difference is that at least in my bjj school you can take a break for a few minutes and no one cares. Whereas a boxing gym I was in for a little while you'd get bitched out for that.

    it varies obviously ....... you have to poace yourself for a long workout, i tend to fight my coach alot and as he is (obviously) a shitload better than me he can force me to do all the work by getting top position and dominating. A good comparison is weights , a 90 minute upper body workout might tire you out a lot, but it won't have the sweat pissing out of you like half an hour of power cleans will.

    i have had sugar crashes during training before, it's a bitch

    Ah! but it depends how much you throw yourself at the workout! these days i've been cranking up my workout, i say about a 8 typically...

    that's about panting with the head down and limp arms but less than puking...

    Over time, the intensity of my workout is increased through harder and faster strikes. a lot of same drills, katas, kihon, sparring, yada yada, but at the end it's how much i throw myself at it...

    Currently I'm unable to carry on for the 3rd hour of classes. Next day is always painful and stiff.

    I love it....

    Grappling is easier because you learn when you can relax and when to explode, and you also learn to breath properly. There's no way to relax much hitting the mitts or pads.
