    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Running.

    I have committed to running twice a week on top of my MA training.
    Basically, I am looking for an increase in fitness, and explosivity (almost a word), in order to compete in an amature Muay Thai card.
    I went out today for the first time, eager to get going and whilst jogging along I noticed I didn't have a clue what the hell I was doing, so I kept moving and ran for about a mile, occasionally bursting into a sprint and then back to a jog, telling myself that this was very good and explosive and I should be proud of myself.
    When I got back I logged onto bullshido and searched for some tips on running.
    I discovered a thread discussing this article:
    http://www.myodynamics.com/articles/kicks.html
    And suddenly I was pretty worried that I might actually be harming myself.

    So good people of bullshido, could you provide me with any running tips or how to structure my run to get the best out of it?

    It's not that you shouldn't do aerobic activity like running, it is just that people can over train that, and it has less carryover to combat sports and self-defense.

    Search 'HIIT' on these forums or on the net.


    Also look into proper running form.

    In the magical land where I actually do anything outside of class, HIIT is the running program I use.

    so basically as you stick to 2-3 K only 3 times a week it should be fine. I wonder how much of an effect on your speed that Mitochondria build up really has. I'm sure as long as you train your fast twitch muscles 50% and cardio 50%. There should be no loss in speed.

    If you're training for amateur MT competition..... **** that running ****. You're better off doing an hour on the heavy bag.

    Do you skip? With a rope?

    I use a very heavy skipping rope, its actually plastic hose, about the weight of a garden hose of equivalent length.

    This allows you to skip faster, makes you tried more quickly and works your arms much more than a typical rope.

    Give it a try and quit the running.

    Running make you a better runner.
    It well help your general fitness.
    It will not make you more "explosive".
    It will not improve your MT skills.

    When I was training to fight and I teach my students to do interval training. If your running then jog with intermittent burstt of speed (sprinting) for say 30 secs then jog for 30 secs then sprint ect. What you are doing is training for the quick explosive combonations that you use in fighting. remeber fight is a rythem of fast slow, slow moving around the ring jabbing ect then quick explosive combos mixed in.

    To just jog for distence well to quote a bud of mine who almost made the olympic boxing team "we're not training for a marathon" also incorportate the same interval type trainig in hitting the bag and jumping rope.

    What's the general consensus on jumping rope? Is it better than running, better at building up "wind"? Does it burn more calories? etc. Basically I'm a fat bastard trying to lose weight. Yes I'm dieting.
