    "Running and bag work will not prepare your body for the rigors associated with a grueling fight. What a running program will do however, is enhance your ability to sustain more intense sparring sessions. If you take a boxer who goes to the gym every day but never runs, and match him against an evenly skilled fighter who performs his roadwork religiously, I'm willing to bet that at least 9 out of 10 times, the winner will be the boxer who has been running." from Rossboxing.com or something like that.

    That's the way I feel about those that say running doesn't do **** for you.

    But, I do believe that it's about interval training, though.

    So basically, he's saying, if you take two guys, and have one guy do more cardio, he'll have better cardio?

    Duh.

    The thing is, your body adapts to the type of stress you place on it. So you will gain cardio from running, but it will be geared toward a long, slow sort of work. What you want for fighting is to be able to endure a series of short, intense bursts of activity. So things like sprints and what have you are better conditioning for fighting than distance jogging.

    The more closely you model your conditioning to the activity you will be performing, the better the results will be.

    So if you take the boxers in the example above, its possible that the boxer who runs will do better than a boxer who does nothing outside of training. But, if you take a boxer that puts in his roadwork and match him or her against a boxer who does an equal amount of endurance training that more closely mimics the sort of endurance that a boxer needs in a fight, my money's one the boxer who's training is more activity specific.

    which is why nobody just gets out and jogs for an hour, they alternate between sprints and a jog. sorry i thought this was a given. i think if you take the fatass who makes excuses about his training against a guy who just goes for a run every morning (or night or whatever, i fucking hate running in the mornings) the running man will win every time. you know, if you found a pair of clones or something

    i cycled for about an hour and a half round this fair city this saturday morning. had to work off the excitement about the FUCKING HIDING that the aussies are going to get tonight in the rugby.

    what did you fatasses do? (this is my motivational technique i learnt from my dad. put people down until they finally do something then berate them for not doing it properly. then get horribly shitfaced.)

    It's all part of the conditioning plan. Soon, my stomach will be so massive that no bodyshots will harm me.
