How do the combat athletes out there balance weight training and combat practice? I mean the cardio doesn’t suffer as far as I’m concerned but I just had to drop weight for my weight class and it sucks. The easiest way to do it was to stop squatting heavy and start doing cardio. Now I’m squatting heavier again but I only do 3 reps per set so I’ll build strength and coordination w/o getting bigger.
What do you guys do?
