    Default Increasing my cardio output

    Hey guys,

    I have bad cardio. I used to smoke in my teens and I think that may have contributed to this. I literally cannot run 1 mile in a light jog, most of the time I can only do 1/2 a mile before i have to take a break. I'm training in MMA now and it really worries me that if I'm in a self-defense situation I would gas out very quickly leaving myself really vulnerable.

    I run everyday and try to push my limits, but that's doing little. I'm not overweight, I'm 6'1 165lbs and my overall fitness is good. Is there anything else I can do? I'm not apposed to PED's like EPO, but for now I'd rather try all legal options at my disposal.

    Regards,
    J

    I would hate to have your problems bro I hope you find the answers to your cardio issues. Have you tried some cardio 30 minutes daily to see if you can build some metcon?

    I'm doing cardio everyday. The thing is, I have great anaerobic capacity. That being, I can do HIIT and recover quickly. It's my aerobic capacity (sustained endurance) that's very weak. I boxed since i was a kid, and never did any aerobic endurance sports, so that may be the problem. Also, the breathing technique might be totally different between anaerobic/aerobic cardio.

    Anywho, I'm open to suggestion on how to increase my aerobic capacity if anyone knows.

    Bigdawg I like your stile of righting utilizing the third world person perspective. By the way I agree with you on the sparkly thing plus Zumba sounds kind of they no offense to sparkles.

    Bro, I understand being young. I also was young at some point. But sometimes you have to be the chicken and sometimes you have to be the pig

    If you are going to force my hand then I choose pig. Really wish you wouldn't have forced me to this decision tonight but there it is, happy? I'm the pig. Ahhh. It kind of feels like a weight lifted off me.

    I hope it isn't some innuendo because I usually get those.

    How do you train MMA if you can only jog a half mile? Do you fight sitting down? I don't want to sound judgmental but I have HIV and even I can jog a couple miles. Maybe you just need to man up.

    Or just avoid minorities? That would help prevent unnecessary cardio stimulation due to "self-defense" situations.

    Isn't beating up minorities the point of training for MMA? That and of course wearing Tapout clothing. I know that whenever I see guys with those clothes on that they aren't to be fucked with.

    I just signed up for a 10k and I've never been serious with cardio in my entire life. You just gotta start doing it.


    Week 1 - jog 2mi twice
    Week 2 - jog 2.5 mi twice
    Week 3 - jog 3mi twice
    Week 4 - jog 3.5mi twice

    and so on. Just do that twice a week until you get to a distance you feel comfortable with. If you jog with an iPhone there are a number of apps available that can help you train for running. I just got MapMyRun+....it doesn't train me for running but it basically tracks my mileage, distance, pace, route, etc.

    My training is a little more intense than this since I am trying to run the 10k in 50-55min. However, after two weeks of training I'm able to run 3.5mi in 30min

    As a departure from my normal form, I will tell you that from my experience, cardio, particularly long distance endurance type cardio is like masturbation. You get better at it with practice.

    If you'r really serious, I have to agree with Darkhalf there. There's nothing like picking some kind of event that pushes your out of your comfort zone in a time frame that will really push you and justt make it your point to get there and do it. Once you have some kind of reasonable goal, just go check out some running sites. You can find tons of articles/forum entries to the tune of something like "5k in 6 weeks? try this routine..." or "marathon in a year, this is an ideal training and volume progression....". Find this type of info and stick with it and give it an earnest effort and you'll probably be quite surprised by the progress you will make. Seriously, I have always been one of those meatheads who is of the opinion of "if it ain't heavy I don't wanna fuck with it, so why would I bother running for distance" but after a challenge to run a 5k by a coworker, some of these programs helped take me from barely being able to run 1/4 mile to running a 5k with no problems in no more than 6 weeks. Just work up progressively and you'll get from where you're at to where you want to be.

    However, it should obviously be said that if you really only want explosive cardio for short period of time, this will have to be integrated properly but having good endurance is never a good thing in the grand scheme of life.
