    Tonight in class I literally thought I was having a heart attack. I rolled 3 times in a row and tapped out all three people but then had to sit in order to keep from puking. Then I rolled twice with a 170lb guy and tapped him out once, but halfway through the second round I nearly passed out. I literally couldn't move. and he quickly guillotined me.

    Then getting up I had such a splitting headache and inability to even find my breath much less catch it. I was done rolling after that which is absolutely pathetic.

    I have asthma, but there's gotta be something I can do to increase my stamina. What can I do?? I figure running is obviously the first thing on my schedule..but anything else to kickstart it a bit?

    keep training, and train more intense on a regular basis. if you want stamina for grappling then grapple!

    if you dont believe in that, then i suggest swimming

    sprinting in intervals helps a lot.

    sets of intense sprints will greatly improve stamina. Pretty much try to do lots of cardio.

    I am not exactly sure of what HIIT is, but if it involves sprinting instead of long distance running then yes it will help greatly.

    I totally know where you are coming from... for me I get major pain/fatigue in my shoulders (lactic acid and all) from muay thai, then I grapple after and feel light headed by the end of class.
    A major thing for me was prepping my nights with 3 shaker cups of whey/malto combo. In between classes I pound one of these and take 5 mins off and relax... I shadow box or whatever to get the heart rate back up and then I go into the next class.
    I also started timeing my workouts at the gym. I do 40 mins at the gym. This is 5X5 of clean and jerk, bench and squat. I do weighted abs and weighted pulls ups then I am out. Ever since I have intensified my workouts out at the gym, I have felt much better rolling.
    Like Christophers said train based on the what you are training for...

    FYI, one of the main fighters at my gym does a 8 lap circuit at a track. He runs 8 laps, but every straight away he sprints, he then rests aroound the corners and back to a sprint in the straight aways. I tried this and managed 3 laps and almost died ;)

    So a 1/4 mile lap? Run the straights??

    I think a lot of it was my nutrition, Ryan helped me a bit...What do you mean Malto?

    Maltodextrin.

    It's a complex sugar you can get at bulknutrition or wherever.

    Yeah, I think a standard track is 400 metres. You run the long straights (100 metres) in a full sprint, then jog the corners, and sprint the short straights (50 metres I think). It is really good and taken precedent over running stairs which I used to do.
    After about lap 2 I get that same short of breath I do when I training hard on the ground or stand up.
    As far as malto, yes I meant maltodextrin... its a sugar that is easily digestible (water soluble so it just shakes in a shaker cup) I would substitue gatorade powder if I had the extra money, but basically I like the carbs for energy and the protein to help sustain muscle as intensive training uses so much of it.

    What protein goes good with water and tastes decent??

    I suck at running, unfortunately I smoked for a long time in my life so I'm still building up my lungs after that stupid move, along with my asthma it's hard for me to keep wind. I think sprinting the hills at my place along with wheight training would be a good balance between your suggestion and chris's

    I get this stuff: [​IMG]

    Its a really good tasting (tastes like fuzzy peach candy) and mix it with orange flavoured malto... I like fruit drinks for when I am training and chocolate stuff for meal replacements...
    I would suggest doing 2 or 3 laps of the routine I suggested and move up slowly... I bet from all the rolling you are doing your cardio is up a ton already!

    hmm, I wonder if I should grab some malto. does that also give you more energy?

    it's a complex carb right? but not prone to makin you fat like regular sugar or what?

    As far as I understand (correct me if I'm wrong):

    Complex carbs take energy to break down into simple sugars (glucose/etc) This process also takes longer and gives you a sustained energy over a longer period than eating simple carbs.

    So, yes, they are less prone to make you fat

    firstly if you are in my weight class disregard this post entirely. this is for people that DO NOT compete between 185 lbs and 205 lbs. Thank you.



    you want stamina, i'm gonna help you out and i'll catch this if any of my buddies read this so SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT IT! 1 word. are you ready for it? Airdyne made by schwinn. let me tell you mother fucker, the more you kick its ass the more it kicks yours. this and the versa climber are the mother fuckin big doggest mother fuckin machines EVA. don;t get it twisted yo ucan run sprints all day up hill in 80 feet of snow jump on this bitch and try to go over lvl 10 for more than 45 sec. and then do it again 20 sec later, um NO goodnight.

    straight balst gym put out a GREAT program for the airdyne.

    if you have access to one of these UTILIZE IT.
