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 do alot of biking. You can't beat more tacchi waza to get you ready for the real thing though.
Good luck man.
We have to sync up, I need to see how you are progressing!

For a REAL cardio workout try skipping (without a rope) through you local bikie bar while wearing a tutu.

You can improve your randoir fitness by playeing around with the randori time:
Fight for 7 minutes x 5
Fight 3 minutes standing-2minutes on the ground - fight 3 minutes standing without a break , repeat.
"Japanese round" - fight for ten minutes, get a fresh partner every two minutes.
Fight with heavier partners, try to be faster than them.
Fiight with lighter partners- try to be faster than them.
Uchi komi - do sets with a lot of repetitions e.g 20
Throwing practice - same here -, throw sets of 10
Do circuit training with judo exercises
30 sec exercise, 15 sec rest:
1. Uchi Komi
2. Crash mat throwing
3. Grip fighting
4. Throw out of movement
5. Fight for medicine ball
6. Uchi komi

Plyometric excercises will blow your mind. Running, swimming and the like a re good, but not sport specific. Functional Fitness exercises is the way to go. Quick burst muscle training.
Has a pretty good list in this discussion.
