Good Ways to Train

There are various ways of training for wrestling, martial arts, or whatever contact sport you do. This is something I really enjoying doing for a hobby but not for competition.

Here is what I like to do. I prefer punching a punching bag to get some strength and endurance training. Kicking is also preferred to train your legs. Practicing this helps you improve and knowing that you can do the same thing every time without messing up.

So feel free to talk about ways you train for a sport you do. Maybe I could get some advice from you too.

My friend trains on the bag as well =] He's been in martial arts for roughly 4 years. Best workouts consist of free weights ^.^ A pair of rubber shielded dumb bells (so you don't damage the bag with the edges) in your hands while punching the bag add up for a nice workout.

Wake up before dawn, cardio, strength training, stretching, balance training, healthy diet = the ways of the warrior.

Re: Good Ways to Train

I'm a complete and finished fatass >.> All I do is sit around drinking something (usually pepsi if we have any), come out of my room at some points for a snack or dinner. While I sit around I either roam the internet, program some games (currently finished Tic Tac Toe and Pong :D ), or do my summer homework for next year (I thought calculus would be fun -.- but it's bull****). It's a miracle that I'm ONLY 140 pounds.

Swimming = repetetive training. I don't do it anymore but we used to swim every day, sometimes twice a day D:
An hour of running around insanely was included beforehand.
The session is basically :
warm up
Muscles in leg conditioning (kicking)
Arm muscle conditioning (arms only)
Speed racing
cardiovascular endurance
annnd cool down.

On average we swam about 3000m in every session. But you really notice how easy it is to fall behind if you skip sessions. I remember being ill for a month, going back and being left behind in every set. -.-

But now the most excercise I do is switch on the TV. ^_^ bahaha

Re: Good Ways to Train

I got this person theory when it comes to working out and life.

Like life is hard enough on it's own.

No Pain,

Hey! No Pain!

Works good for me.

:D
Seriously.

Re: Good Ways to Train

well, you don't have to be the fittest person to do it. it's more mental strength than anything else. :)

lol? Mental strength? It's not going to help you when your muscles die after a mile of running ;). Mental strength is a way to persevere but if your body can't possibly handle it, it won't :crazyeyes:

Exactly and also consider foot work. You need to do be able to do good foot work in order to play a sport correctly. That even goes for tennis and martial arts.

Re: Good Ways to Train

After working in hospitals for just a few years, I've learned the meaning of life is to avoid injuries. So, with martial arts, you are at risk of joint pains from all that impact. I don't want to sound too preachy, but older guys I've talked to who are into kickboxing training told me of their serious feet woes (pain just from walking around). It seems you can't get away with anything in life. Look at Bruce Lee. He had a famous quote about the mind being able to supress all pain, yet he died quite young from complications after taking pain meds. I guess you can't simply block out pain with your mind after all. Everyone should avoid permanent pain and injuries.

So, in my humble opinion, I'd say weight training alone is the ideal, mixed with cardiovascular workouts. If you do everything properly (and don't show off by trying to lift too much), and don't do fast, snappy movements in poor form, then you can avoid ever injuring yourself and get in great shape. I go by what this 'scooby' guy instructs:

Edit: Even if you are not lifting, you really have to see scooby screaming into his pillow!

Re: Good Ways to Train

stillman, IIRC Master Bruce died from a brain tumor.

Later Lee complained of a headache, and Ting gave him an analgesic (painkiller), Equagesic, which contained both aspirin and a muscle relaxant. Around 7:30 p.m., he went to lie down for a nap. When Lee did not turn up for dinner, Chow came to the apartment but could not wake Lee up. A doctor was summoned, who spent ten minutes attempting to revive him before sending him by ambulance to Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Lee was dead by the time he reached the hospital.[110]
There was no visible external injury; however according to autopsy reports, his brain had swollen considerably, from 1,400 to 1,575 grams (a 13% increase). Lee was 32 years old. The only substance found during the autopsy was Equagesic. On 15 October 2005, Chow stated in an interview that Lee died from a hypersensitivity to the muscle relaxant in Equagesic, which he described as a common ingredient in painkillers. When the doctors announced Lee's death officially, it was ruled a "death by misadventure."[citation needed]

So he died from a hypersensitivity to a muscle relaxant!
