Best training style
 
What do you all think the best training "style" is.. Like. Focus on Cardio ? Or focus on strength ?

I think Cardio is definatly the most important because even if I can punch through someone's skull, if I dont' have the stamina to get that perfect show, I'm done for.

I don't think there's a "perfect" style, but i think the key is finding out what is practical and what isn't.

Stamina's important, so people need to do cardio.

Strength's important, so people need to do weight.

But i think the most important part of it is just applying the fighting with sparring. I feel like it improves my fighting the most if i spar alot.

I do alot of weight and some cardio too, but i really think that the key to being successful is balancing all of it to suit your needs. If you can bench 300+ then you probably want to focus on cardio and stamina. But if you have endless stamina and you can't do any real damage with a punch or a submission hold, are you really going to get anywhere?

There is no single requirement such as strength or requirement. They are all interlinking and without one other they are rendered useless.

Cardio
Strength
Technique
Confidence

etc

training "style" would vary from person to person based upon thier needs but you can be in perfect physical condition and if you are not mentally ready you are all but screwed unless your opponent is in alot worse shape then you are

a training style with little rest in between sets that builds up usuable strength and conditioning while working all of the muscle in your body.

There is one very important thing missing here: Form. Strength and cardio don't matter if you don't understand the application. There are plenty of guys that I've fought that are clearly in better shape but if you've got no form than you get caught with a rear naked choke or an armbar and it's done.

The best workout is really one where you cover everything WELL in a short period of time.

yes I agree there, and another thing you can't really train except by sparring is composure, keeping your head cool in a fight
