Thread: Excessively long warm ups

    Default Excessively long warm ups

    Anyone else get a bit frustrated by this? Right now I can only really afford to do a couple of sessions of training a week, and it is sooo frustrating when the instructor decides to spend half the class doing solo exercises I could have done by myself at home. Arghh I want to do technique and sparing in that precious mat time, I already did my allotted running for this week.

    Having said that it would not be a problem if one knows in advance what the session will be in advance. If its going to be more of a cardio workout session then say so on the timetable, or tell me in advance and I can plan my week's training. Just occasionally the masochist in me does enjoy a session with a fitness nazi. Just dont change the focus of the class on a whim.

    How long is the warm-up? Maybe it's longer due to the cold weather?

    We tend to keep it to a max of 10-15mins and just vary the intensity.

    10-15 is about right for a warm up yup. I guess its when it goes beyond the half an hour mark and it stops being a warm up, and becomes more of an aerobic fitness work out. And I am not against these as such, its just irritating when I was expecting and planning for a jiujitsu class.

    Personally I don't have a problem with long warm-ups, however anything over 30 mins is too much. I think 15mins getting your heart rate up/stretching nd then another 10-15mins of drills (shrimping or active partner drills) is fine. Doing 30mins worth of burpess, press-ups, crunches, squats is not something that should be done every session but is good to do once in a while.

    That said a long warm-up can only help with your cardio( the greatest weapon of them all).

    I can't stand overly long warm ups. I see no point to them other than to pad the class out.

    Fifteen minutes max IMO.

    If he thinks someone needs to lose weight the he should make them spar for longer or at least drill throws and takedowns.
