But the best thing you can do is 5x5's which is 5 rounds, 5 mins a round and you push your self to exhaustion every round.

That would kill me today. literally. no exaggeration. (I'm way out of shape)

I don't think our friend the OP has access to partners and coaches, he's trying to get ready for that. There are tons of workout videos out there. I had one by frank shamrock at one time that was killer, no equipment needed. Bas rutten has a good one too.

Yeah, I don't have access to sparring partners, or anything like that. But thanks, I figured out that running alone is doing little help, and I should run shorter distances.

So I guess that I should run for a while, then do pushups/sit-ups/squat jumps, and then continue running. Or the same thing without the running.

Oh, well. I'll still run on long distances sometimes, though not as often. That's because it's comfortable to run when I'm going somewhere, and also it's a great way to lose fat - in case I get some fat.

Here's samples of what I'm talking about. If either one of these full sets is still available, they're worth the money.

Randy couture has a good one too. Probably everybody in mma has one by now.







now I need to rest my click finger, maybe do some stretches to get ready for my walk to the mail box.

I've never really put much stock in distance running. The body is working in a totally different way when jogging five miles versus throwing punches, stuffing takedowns and rolling for 15-25 minutes. And the latter is far more exhausting in most cases simply because of how your body is breathing, and what its doing with the oxygen/oxygenated blood.

As said by others, the best option is sport-specific cardio development. This can be done in a bunch of different ways, these are just a couple.
1. Shadowboxing
2. 5x5 Heavy bag/Sparring (I think heavy bag is better for just cardio, since you don't have to worry about getting kicked in the face!)
3. HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)

The most important thing is trying to emulate actual competition. This way your body is used to doing internally, exactly what it needs to do when you're actually being taken down, or when you throw a combination.

What about running as a part of intensive training? Like running 200 meters (relatively fast, but not sprinting), then doing 15 quick pushups, 200 more meters, 15 quick squat jumps, 200 meters, quick 15 pushups, and so on. I tried it, and it was much harder than just doing the pushups and squat jumps. So I guess it works?

That's another good one. Circuit training. Not only does it work the muscles, but because of the high intesity, its also an effective cardiovacular workout. Most importantly, everything done within it is fight specific training, so there's no wasted energy.

Shadow boxing like the videos and running is deffinately the most effective cardio you can do. Although it might not simulate a fight it is still workiing your heart extremely hard and increasing your overall breathing efficiency when tired. If your not getting results from running your just not doing it right, use a short distance like a mile and use it as a test ground to see your cardio results...

I have done a 100-pound weighted walk, even though it is not running my body ached for several days afterwords.

Also note my pulse rates sky-rocketed. I did close to a 3 mile walk and was drenched in sweat when I got home.
