Forget the work-life balance! Let’s talk about something much more important: the balance between mat time and conditioning.
I bring this up because one of the questions I get asked most frequently is about how to structure one’s training and conditioning for maximum benefit, and also how to fit that in with work, family, socializing and the rest of life. In fact today’s newsletter is partially a response to a question a BJJ purple belt asked me after I sent out a batch of newsletters dealing with conditioning routines.
Balancing mat time with conditioning time can be a very tricky problem. There are only so many discretionary hours in a week, and doing more of one thing almost always means doing less of something else. If you have, say, 6 free hours a week, and you want to be the best grappler you can be, then the question arises whether you should spend all 6 hours on the mat, or spend at least some of those hours doing conditioning.
The interesting thing is that everyone struggles with this. It’s a dilemma for the 25 year old professional fighter who has hours a day to train, as well as for the 45 year old professional accountant who likes to train a few times a week but wonders if he should also be pumping some iron.
Everybody struggles with optimizing their training time, it’s just that the constraints are different. The pro fighter worries about overtraining and getting injured, and the accountant worries that his family will forget his name if he disappears for yet another weekday evening, but nobody can do as much as they want.
Be very cautious when you read about the training schedule of a professional fighter or competitor, especially if you are looking for ideas on how to structure your training. Keep in mind that:
1. they often lie about how much they do (to intimidate their opponents)
2. there is a major difference between a pre-competition training camp schedule and regular maintenance training. Their maintenance training (when they aren’t getting ready for a competition) might be a lot less than they let on.
3. a pro competitor in hard training does nothing but eat, train and sleep, a luxury not available to the vast majority of grapplers
4. they may well be taking steroids or hormones to improve recovery time

Former UFC and Pride heavyweight champion, Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira is focused on the recovery process of his injuries and is already planning a possible return on UFC Rio. On an exclusive interview given to TATAME, the black belt talked about the importance of investing in marketing to make MMA popular, demonstrated a wish of confronting Brock Lesnar, chosen Anderson Silva as the greatest pound by pound of the world, guaranteed that he still has many work ahead of him and talked about other subjects that you can check on the chat here below.
What’s the importance of these marketing actions that you’ve been doing to enlarge MMA’s market?
It’s pretty important, there’re fans and many people who like MMA, it’s a new group of fans, it’s a sport that can be watched by people of all ages: a teenager and a 60 year old guy may be watching MMA nowadays. We have to do these things, the events, creating new MMA products and for this huge group of fans that follow MMA, also for athletes, not only the top athletes, but to all so people like it. If we create a product that the athletes use, that’s enough approval for us. If an athlete that fights in a great event uses your product, a regular person can also use it and it’ll be more than enough…
