New Year, New Training Programme.


Now that my shoulders are finally on the mend it’s time to get back into some serious training. Big competition in the Autumn and a warm up comp in May. So plenty of work to be done.

My sport (like all combat sports) requires a lot of stamina. With bout typically lasting 6 mins I need a both a highly developed aerobic and anaerobic pathway and localised muscular endurance. And with no weight categories I also need considerable strength in order to complete with opponents 15 stone plus.

Macro programme for the year looks like this.

Jan: Base cardio and strength

Feb: Base cardio and strength

March * April: 8 weeks out programme, focus on anaerobic conditioning and muscular speed and endurance.

Late April/Early May: Taper and comp

Late May: Break (light cardio & maintenance strength work)

June & July: 8 weeks out programme, focus on anaerobic conditioning and muscular speed and endurance.

Early August: Taper and comp
