Train Like You're Going To Do It
When training for an event, you have to prepare by doing that event and exercises that directly translate to what you are going to do. For example if you are getting ready to fight a 3 round fight (of 3 minutes), it wouldn't help you to train by jogging 5 miles slow. You'd be better off running 2 to 3 miles at a fast past. If you are hitting the heavy bag and at the end of the work round you aren't winded, the next round you need to work harder. Don't just go through the motions. Move like you would in a match. Create the intensity of competition in your mind. Visualize the fight. If you are talking to your buddies and jiving around talking during the workout, time is wasted. Focus on the task at hand and rap to your buddies after you train. Fighting is not a game and those who get their hands raised at the end of the match are usually the ones training smarter.
