Hi, 3 quick questions

1) Is there room or use in my routine for hitting the heavy bag?

2) Is there room or use in my routine for using weighted vests, hand wraps and ankle wraps for practicing patterns or standing attacks?

3) In the triangle of strength, speed and endurance does practicing patterns or unloaded standing attacks count as both pute speed and pure endurance (aerobic, not anaerobic or ATP) training?

1. Yes, you can probably hit the heavy bag with that. If it turns out you can't, then just do something else. Accessory work should not replace stuff like bagwork.

2. There is no room anywhere for ankle og wrist weights for techniques.

3. Speed is highly specific to the activity. Doing patterns will make you quick at doing patterns but usually sparring techniques are much fewer so its not exactly "quality time" in training. Usually, these definitions are reserved for accessory work but all techniques should basically be speed with some endurance. There is no "pure speed and endurance", if its both its not pure . A martial artist has little time for direct aerobic training, it should come as a by-product of anaerobic training.

Gotcha ill follow up on those 3. i figured it couldn't be both pure speed and enduranced, but i wasn't sure cause it was unloaded and seemed aerobic.

also i should have pointed out that by "pure speed" i meant along the lines of a 40yd dash equivalent, unloaded for minimal strength and strictly atp endurance. i do understand there is at least a minimal amount of each in each

As a rule of thumb, anything that takes longer then about 10seconds is no longer ATP-system dominant (but of course you always get some of all energy systems as you know.

So a pattern would never be the equivalent of a 40yd dash, because most patterns take at least 2 minutes and never count as "maximal" anything. So training effect is very limited besides mastery of techniques.
