    for example I have seen mentioned on here that it's good to "run like you fight" speeding up and slowing down changing paces throughout, when in reality that is an excuse to take it easy, if you reach a point where you absolutely have to slow down or walk for a while you need to make sure on the next run to make it farther before you slow down and to slow down for a lesser distance, always push yourself beyond what you think you are capable of

    it's also good to train in heat with sweatpants on, something I picked up in wrestling they would crank it up to 80-90 degrees and we would be in sweatpants and sometimes even sweatshirts, what this translates to in running is if it's 96 degrees out and you run 3 miles in 27 minutes, when it's only 80 degrees out and you're in shorts you can run it in more like 20 minutes, so if you train for a match in those conditions and then you go to an event in a temperature controlled arena it feels like you have all kinds of extra energy and speed

    You don't understand what you are talking about.
    What you are trying to do is adapt your heart rate. When you fight- during the course of a round- there are periods when you are moving around and feinting for positions and so on. That is when you run.
    There are times when you are exchanging punches- that is when you sprint. There is one minute between rounds and that is when you jog.
    Live and learn stud.

    Lol. Okay.

    You sound pretty clueless to me.

    Training to failure like this is just dumb. Interval training is done by boxers because it somewhat mirrors the stresses on the cardiac system of a boxing match. Your idea of just run as hard as possible until you can't run anymore is ridiculous and potentially dangerous. Haven't you ever heard the phrase train smarter not harder?

    Also, attempting to force yourself to run as hard as possible further and further every time you run is a nice way to **** yourself up, negatively impact performance and progression and massively increases the risk of injury. You carry on with this silly idea if you feel it works for you, you'll end up regretting it, though.

    Any time I see "I picked up in wrestling" I know it's going to be utter bull****.

    You'll have to explain how forcing yourself to sweat more in training = better performance in the ring. To most people it sounds idiotic since while sweating you're losing water, which in turn downgrades performance. So by your logic, decreasing your ability to train equates to "all kinds of extra energy and speed"? As I said you'll have to explain this rubbish.

    Here's an idea, set the air con to the temperature of the place you'll fight at and train at that. It sounds crazy I know, but maybe by training at that temperature your body will adapt and become more efficient at that temperature. Hmmmm.

    To this last point, there’s something to be said for training not only for the conditions you will be fighting under, but the time (especially if you’re fighting more than one time zone away).

    If you’re fighting in an amateur tournament where your fight is going to be in the afternoon, train in the afternoon. Likewise if it’s at night, or if time zones away the actual fight time will be at 3 a.m. your time, train to that time.

    Basically condition your body clock as best you can so that it’s ready to go when it’s time to go (fight) — if your body is used to sleeping at a time when you have an important fight, it’s going to take something to kickstart that engine.

    3 miles of interval running. 9 minutes of intense heavybag training (20 seconds rest after 3 minutes) make sure you give it your all on the bag, don't half-arse it!

    HIIT training may improve your insulin sensitivity, blood pressure, and help you lose abdominal fat

    ya it is. I'll never understand how anyone can still promote something to lose "belly fat" or whatever. No offense at the guy above, just reading some **** on Youtube every day i open it. It's ridiculous. Of course you can tighten some parts of your body with certain exercises but losing fat in a specific region of your body is just impossible. One guy loses belly fat first, some other people lose it first at the legs......

    If running is your main form of exercise, consider cross-training one to two times a week with cycling, swimming, yoga, or Pilates

    Ah the bleep test, that brings back memories. I remember completing it in high school and then went on to do cross country running. Got my name put forward to run for the school at roger banister sports ground I came 28th out of 80 against the top cross country runners in the Harrow and Brent area in the 15-18 age group . Not the worst I guess.
    Do police still have to be able to complete the bleep test to join the force?
