Cardio Workouts

I did my first submission matches last weekend and I was doing really amazing-- up until I got worn out. These matches are only 2 minute rounds, one round per fight, and the matches aren't back to back. So I need some Cardio workouts. I've already started jogging about a mile a day, any other recommendations?

Grapple more. You can run all day if you want, once you hit the mat you work in a totally different way.

Do sprints, short 2 minute matches are quick and explosive affairds. Sprints will help alot more than jogging a mile.

The jog would be a good warm up but you need like full body conditioning. Try lookin up a good Tabatas routine, or looking up a High Intensity Intrerval Training routine.

That kind of cardio work should help alot more than jogging.

Yes i'd also reccomend Sprints. Why not try doing 10x100metre Sprints/jog-back-to-start. Sprint out a good distance maybe 60-100 metres then jog back to the start and continue until 10reps completed non stop. When i'm doing this i'll usually do 3 sets of this with 1min rest between the 3 sets so i can replicate an amatuer boxing match.
you could also try the same idea but with a good hill.

I also do a circuit which really helps my fitness and conditioning which features burpee's, squat jumps, jump lunges, and 3 upper body exercises. I find that all the plyometric jumps really get you working hard.

Hope this helps and good luck for the future!

I would agree with the other 2 guys. Interval training, hill repeats, circuit training and tabata rounds are all great ways to do conditioning for combat sports. I have posted a link to a circuit I do using a punch bag that may be of some help.
