    Those two most recent links posted are blocked here at my work, but I'll check them out when I get home.

    What exactly is interval training?

    According to those sites, absofuckinglotely amazing.

    It's training hard for shorter periods. For example, sprinting for twenty seconds, walking for 10 for a total of 4 minutes. After 6 months, this is a absolutely HUGE difference from static cardio, says the report.

    Pretty amazing, and easier and faster than the other choices.

    %28 percent over a 6 week period in trained athletes. Yes, it's nuts.

    Wow. So, in fighting, does distance running (what I'm assuming you meant by static cardio) benefit you very much? Does it fill a separate role?

    It is at this point that this thread could probably be moved to the physical training forum.

    Thread moved at OP's request. It has become a HIIT topic.

    Many boxing proponents still reccomend roadwork(distance running with various excercises at certain distance intervals), and it probably helps maximize high-altitude training, but for the most part everything i've read indicates that if you're already at a base level of athletic performance, distance running won't make you better at anything other than distance running.

    Think about it. Have you ever seen a competitive distance runner that looked muscular? Does Lance Armstrong look like he could kick anyone's ass? My understanding is that 1) you should always train for specificity(combat sports are shorts bursts of explosive activity, with short recovery times) and 2) LSD cardio is catabolic, which means it will consume not just fat, but muscle as well.

    A lot of people misunderstand this and forget that a prerequisite for this philosophy is a base level of fitness. If you are a couch potato you will still see benefits from just running.

    Tabata is the only cardio program that everyone I know who has tried it has thrown up.

    yeah ditch the long runs and take up interval training. wind sprints etc. roadwork is outdated and ineffective for the most part.

    what is your lifting regime like? also, you could probably do more sparring. couple times a week.
