To grade or not to grade... look at those prices

There is life beyond Jiu Jitsu, we just don't like to talk about it too much

I suspect the philosophy is much like TJF's actually; I need to be fit enough to competently see the grading through. Fitness is a technique. To be honest I completely agree. If it were just constant Martial Arts then that wouldn't phase me in the slightest. It's the prospect of quantities of press-ups and like that will form the "warm up". Press ups seem to be bane of my existence. These days I'm limited not so much by ability or dedication to training and my chronic injuries.

Thanks for that. That does help.

Happy to help if I can, CT. I have my own personal trainer now who is putting me on a strict schedule to improve on some of my cardio, flexibility and strength weaknesses. I'm sure she would be happy to discuss a possible solution to improve your fitness .. just ask Matt  :lol:

Eat well and find that 'fine line'. Once you have, you can make realistic progression. You don't have to start overloading on cardio or interval training immediately, it's all about finding realistic tartgets or you will end up overtraining.

If you need any help with anything like that i know there are some people here that know their stuff, including me.
