    It depends on what level you are playing each sport as well as how well you individually would like to play that particular sport.

    People can probabaly come in here and logically argue their case for every sport listed and the some.

    there is no hardest sport to train for, it all depends on how much training the athlete is willing to do :dunno:

    MMA/boxing is pretty brutal.

    I'm talking about top level guys, not johnny douchebag who watched UFC once.

    it is phsically impossible to answer that question. It all about your dedication to that particular sport - you get what you put in. I know golfers that train harder then football players, NASCAR drivers that train harder then baseball players, etc. You can't chose just one

    based on my experience of 0 years in all said activites, i'm going to say they could all be equally hard to train for. except baseball.

    and i actually did play baseball. but i was only like 12, and they put me in right field; probably because i sucked. maybe it's because i didn't train at the same level as if i were to be playing something like football.

    and also what you're like when you begin training... if you're training to be a marathon runner and you're obese and can't walk a mile much less run one, then training to meet your goal will be much harder than a young fit guy training for wrestling.

    fighting is kind of different in a way because you're not just beating yourself up and pushing your limits, you're getting beat up on top of it. Still I wouldn't say it's the hardest sport to train for. MMA is worse than boxing IMO because the type of conditioning is much different when you're training to grapple and everything on top of having to jump around and strike... Boxing is a little less demanding in that area because it's kept standing. Like most people stated though, there's still no one hardest sport to train for, it's about you personally and how you train.

    I think the obvious answer is "it depends".

    That being said I would guess that strongman or cagefighting might be the hardest to train for.

    They all have there ups and downs, I mean hell Formula 1 drivers were pulling like 30g's around corners when they came out TMS. Thats more stress than most other sports put you through, but Im not going to say formula 1 driving is the hardest to train for

    All things being equal I'd say football. It require some of the toughest elements of all sports.

    I would say wrestling just because of the super-strict weight management. They have to do some extreme shit just to weight in to the right class.

    Boxing is pretty hard after actually trying it out. You gotta be in really good shape for it
