    randori endurance

    So I first thought that ne waza was the most physically demanding fighting I had done, that is until I got into tachi waza. In judo we are doing ne waza randori for about 20 minutes followed by tachi waza randori for 20 minutes with about 3-4 minute rounds. Needless to say I am usually spent to the point of heart attack at the end of every practice. I want to start doing some tournaments now that I have a couple months of judo under my belt. On Saturday my instructor told me and another guy that we should start running to get into cardiovascular shape to be able to do a lot of shiai at a tournament. Personally, I hate working out. I don't have the will power to do it anymore. My exercise comes solely from my martial practice. You guys got any suggestions for cardiovascular exercise that doesn't suck ass?

    I bike; my instructors have told me the best way to get fit for randori is randori.
    I would liken it to the boxing or the muay thai of internal kung fu, even though that's like calling apples the oranges of the apple world. --WalkOn

    Get a friend of yours to make you go running, generally its funner to train with someone else. Other then that, and the suggestions already posted by bran and xango, skipping rope is pretty fun (now that I somewhat know how to do it, anyways).

    randori for randori: that's what I think but unfortunately I can't find someone to do randori with every day of the week

    All I know, is that running/biking etc. is incredibly boring on your own. I'm think swimming might be good for randori because it involves the whole body. But most sorts of exercise that focuses on endurance is insanely boring on your own. At least in my opinion. I guess I'm not helping very much.. erhm...

    Buy a copy of Dance Dance Revolution and jump around like a 13 year old girl. That'll get your cardio running :P

    Am flat-footed, so hate running... echo swimming and biking. Swimming is my favorite exercise in the whole world and I think it has wonderful benefits for MA.

    I got an idea. How about you STFU YOU WHINY OUT OF SHAPE BITCH and go for a couple of Laps. :violent1: You think Kimura became badass by sitting around going, I HATE EXERCISE I'M LAZY WHINE WHINE WHINE!!!!! Get some tunes and pound the pavement. You are NOT going to get better if you don't do some pure cardio work. You don't have to start with a run a brisk walk will do fine for starters. :walk: Now MAN UP BITCH!!! :qright7:
