    how is it the exact opposite?

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Basically the author is saying that long distance running builds the wrong kind of muscle endurance for a fighter. Long distance running builds "slow twitch" muscle fibers. These fibers are great for slow steady power over a long period of time. However, as a fighter, you want quick explosive power. This quick power comes from "fast twitch" muscle fibers.

    Also, I'm pretty sure he isn't knocking on running, he's just saying that you shouldn't run so far for so long: 2-3 miles tops.

    P.S. Thanks for introducing me to this workout. It looks like it's just the kind of program I've been looking for and I can't wait to start it. If you'd like, I can keep you posted on my progress (if any).

    truepwrz, kid, I think we mentioned to you that 6-mile runs don't really help you. Sprints (which are in the same category as the exercises suggested by the author) would help you a lot better.

    I disagree a bit about his claims that deadlifts won't help. Muscle is muscle, strenght is strenght. Anything that helps you build a strong, powerfull posterior chain (what runs on you from your back down to your ankles) will help you in being explosive.

    Actually Macho, In another article: http://www.t-nation.com/readArticle.do?id=1034530 (which is another great article btw) the same author calls the deadlift the ultimate strength training excercise. I think, in the article above, that he's just saying that deadlifts aren't the best for endurance training.

    Yeah 6 miles is pointless, it doesn't really relate to anything you'd do in competition.

    Intervals, sprints, circuits etc are all your friend.

    I don't do any long slow distance now. Longest runs i do is 4 x 800m intervals with a minutes rest (walking) in between, aiming to complete each as fast as possible. Follow that by 50m sprints then jog back to the start and repeat x 4. That's still over 2 miles in total.

    I know i quote this one a lot but it is teh awesome:

    Distance running can help you in keeping your weight down. Other than that, sprints and high intensity training will serve you better for a fight.

    High intensity will actually help better with weight management too.

    I keep my runs to a mile for time, then I brake and do a walk/sprint for a mile. Running is not my main conditioning tool, lots of other stuff at the gym are. Hell I would rather do 100's of burpees than run 6 miles! They would do more and are less boring.
