if you think its easy stop now
no one achieved anything by doing nothing
never argue with a fool
if fighting is a pursuit rooted in pain, you will find the best teachers have often absorbed the most punishment themselves......and remained standing
I reckon Lance Armstrong has dug deeper than most
Lanca amstrong is GOD. no one comes even close to this man.
Out of all sports above. Competition free styile/collegite wrestling. Competition there is a very fast stall call. You cant make it slow unless you want to lose.
its pretty well known that wrestlers are most well rounded on the fitness side of things.

They are complete odds to each other. Wrestling is almost totally anaerobic, boxing is mainly aerobic

Sorry i meant on lower level then that. As in average joe training at your local MMA gym digs deeper then your local football player etc.

I would think every professional athletic digs deep or why the hell are they getting paid for it lol

Aye Marc, thats why I put a few caveats in! Both tend to each other...I just played on the strengths...
But true, boxing can be very anerobic too for sure, especially in later rounds.
Lance Armstrong - he's got balls that fella! Oooops....
I like the 400m description from Roger Black...'first 100m is getting up to speed, second and third is sustaining that speed and keeping form, fourth 100m is just hanging on in there and fighting the pain!'
All sports dig deep in some way or another.
Actually, when I box the mental intensity I need is at its highest. The concentration level is incredible, I really find it incredibly mentally tiring. I actually find the fitness no sweat at all, even going flat out I can keep going more than most of the army fellas, and they train like top pros should....
I think the mental demand comes from just having two weapons to worry about. In kickboxing, there's four, Thai there's eight, MMA is endless...you have to have a more 'open mind', I think I go into a more 'zoned out state' in MMA to be receptive.
Just some thoughts!
do you think boxers moving into MMA have a better advantage than wrestlers moving accross ?

Oh, a further thought - anyone seen the GB rowers doing their ergo tests on the concept 2?
2000m and they are seriously in need of medical attention - totally wasted.
Wonder how many of us have been like that lately in training lol?
ooooo had to hurt
This is hard to comment on. There are so many aspects to fitness. Strength, flexibility, endurance, co-ordination. How do we really define fitness? It can be so sport specific at times?
Over many elements surely it would have to be MMA overall?, but I imagine that there are certain elements that are trained to a much higher level in certain sports whereas they might be lacking in another area. Surely this is very hard to call?
