    Judo / Brazillian Jiu Jitsu

    I apologize, as I'm new here and just might not have done my due diligence, but I can't seem to find anything for Judo / BJJ in Workouts /Programs/Running/Fitness.

    Is there anything anybody could make or recommend that would be good for building up the cardio and endurance needed n order to improve at Judo? I can say, run half a mile before having to walk a bit, but despite that... during Judo I get worn out quick, and I asked an instructor why and they said it's "Because Judo targets a lot of muscles. Just running increases your leg muscle, but you use a lot more than just your legs doing Judo, so I can recommend pushups, situps, etc"

    Could somebody make a workout or something similar that would give people a good schedule to follow in order to effectively build up cardio and endurance?

    I think you will have to go a little bit to trial, not so much for the lack of training possibilities of Darebee but for the exact opposite and above all a lot depends on your current physical level and your needs.
    Take a look at these workouts for example, my selection has been full body, cardio / high burn, difficulty normal, equipment none:

    If you see what may be of interest to you and what works for you then you can better select a 30-day program:

    and welcome

        What Fremen said. And once you have picked a program/workout, if it's too easy, you can shorten the recovery time between sets

          Skyrimkillereh , there are many programs here that work on general endurance, upper body strength (for grip, locks, submissions), reflexes, and flexibility.

          For running/endurance, you might look at Roadwork
          ​​​​​​Don't let the subtitle for boxers steer you away. Also, consider Eight Weeks to 5K.

          For upper body strength, you could look at Iron Born. You might also like Spartan Trials. That's focused on overall body strength.

          Think about them as modules to supplement your dojo sessions.

            I did Judo for seven years and other martial arts after that. What I did for my cardio endurance was I would run 5 km one day and do weight training circuits the next day. Of course I would do this on non Dojo training days. I also would do jumprope instead of running in the icy winter.

              Skyrimkillereh From a practical standpoint, there is no real best way to improve endurance. It basically is a process that delivers oxygen to your body, and if it is going to be effective for running, then it is going to be effective for any cardio exercise. That said, part of the process of delivering oxygen is through the capillary network of your circulatory system, and if your body is not used to delivering oxygen to various body parts then it will take longer for it to get used to it while it builds both muscle and the capillary network.

              I find that the best cardio exercise because of this is swimming, though I am biased because I really enjoy swimming. I used to be a pretty good long distance runner, and swimming does the same for my cardio as running did, though as swimming is a full body workout, it tends to be more effective overall.

              In terms of what you are looking for Judo, probably a lot of varied HIIT might be best as long as you can maintain the intensity over the various exercises. Or try swimming.
