Thank you .
I have not been here in a while - used to post for years under kmcnyc
Its really true - lets say grappling and striking ( ignoring mma)
have far far different energy systems and needs
coming from child judo through college and international wrestling to BJJ
I saw some different approaches.
I did far far too much of say road work - but I cut allot of weight and this was normal for the times.
I am no trainer- just a been around a bit.
I always advocate -
in that order depending on your goals
this is a strength body building site - so its natural our training would put that first. And thats cool.
what are your goals- I dont want an answer-
you want you to apply training towards them.
you want to chase big numbers and roll or spar a few days a week great.
you want to lift on 6 days and roll spar twice a week for fun great.
you want to get in a car train or plane and compete 30 times a year in some martial art thats different
as mentioned I have had good results with good old 531 two days a week lifts made progress - I worked a physical job
and got to ‘roll’ 2-3 days a week till well im old af and broken af.
Im gonna say - do what ever program has you bust your ass
lift some basic ass lifts
do some 'slow ’ conditioning and some hard conditioning and your good to go.
for the record - people who can roll for two hours and fail at 20 burpees -
I like that.
at a wrestling camp - or clinic I took third place in " squat thrusts " which is what most people called burpees with something like 800 and change.
disgusting 90’s over training at its finest.
