Cardio Is King
Last post, I talked about strenghth and technique. Today, let's look at cardio. Without cardio, you strength won't last and your technique will get sloppy. If two tough fighters go at it, after a round or two, the one with better cardio usually wins. You can fight someone that's weaker and at first their blows don't phase you. Later on during the match, you start to feel those blows that felt like nothing at first and the accumulation of those blows take affect. It's best to develop your cardio doing your sport. Sparring is most important. After that you have, running, rope, etc. Training must be specific to the activity.
