Big questions about cardio days!! help me out
Hey, As an aspiring amateur fighter, I rate cardio as my number one thing to train, aside from technique. I want to be the type of fighter like clay guida, just always go go go. But i do have some big questions!
The first, anaerobic vs aerobics. My normal routine is a light jog in the morning either outside or in my house, followed by some heavy bag drills for 3x5 minute rounds, and some tae bo style stretches and shadow boxing. Totals up to about 30-50 mins before work. My goal is to keep my heart rate below 140, kind of in a fat burning zone. But, later on in the day, I do my hardcore anaerobic v02 max kinda stuff. Throwing tires, burpees, sprints, stair running, etc. My question is, is it safe to do these on the same day, or should i break it up better? I usually have 2 of these per week, and the <140 cardio most mornings combined with different stuff(pushups, abs, weight lifting)
2nd... how much is too much? is the straight up fatigue feeling your heart and lungs telling you you have had too much? I always feel like i can push it further but i dont want to die of a heart attack at 23...so any help about finding my training limits too. PS...sorry for the huge post
