    What exactly is OLD?

    To improve cardio for Grappling you simply need to GRAPPLE more. Running, swimming, etc are all great but nothing beats actually getting on the mat and going at it.

    I mean grappling is great and all but i just feel like i need to improve my cardio over all. I'm starting to feel sluggish around the day and over sleeping alot.

    think i'm gonna start lifting wieghts then do cardio after wards.

    I use to follow tito ortiz work out regimen but no longer have the time too.

    My goal is to jump rope for fifteen minutes straight or be able to run two miles in fifteen minutes.. that's going to be my minimum baseline. Like I used to be able to..

    I'm very interested in Tabata intervals also...seems like a bargain to get such cardio gains in a short session...

    Make sure you're eating and sleeping enough, too. Training more could just lead to overtraining.

    If you're interested in intervals, try Mike Mahler's High Octane Cardio; you can build some very MA-specific skill training into it.

    The Tabata intervals will help.

    I just did a bunch of bagwork, lifting, and HIIT and ate whey protein afterwards, and also ate like 3 different dinners that night.... The next day my cardio was through the roof! I was a non stop Jiu Jitsu machine. Usually I am pretty dead the day after the gym, but not this time! Work hard, eat lots.

    A daily 30 min hump session with the lady in your life, make sure you follow a HIIT protocol ( 2 minutes of vigourous humping followed by 2 minutes of leisure humping followed by 1 minute of High velocity twat banging, repeat for the 30 minutes) followed by some deep stretching and a nice jasmine bubble bath.
