If we're talking about where your heart rate is for a fight, I see what you're saying in that the aerobic system dominates for most of the time, but I'm saying 50/50 in that if someone goes into a fight with amazing aerobic abilities (i.e. can run marathons) but little to no anaerobic training, I can't see them doing well, because you need to balance things and train both systems
. Would you agree with this?
Yes, I agree, I see what you mean now by 50/50. Training anaerobically helps to generate power, speed, etc. all very important skills. I thought what was meant was that the anaerobic energy system and aerobic energy system shared equal demands in terms of energy.
