    Those are all good goals, though not necessarily achievable by focusing on running a lot. I used to be of the opinion that running almost everyday makes you fast and gives you good endurance. It is true, but not really the most effective. I would suggest having a look at the Cardio Trim Run program, it is structured in a way to build cardiovascular ability as well as speed.

    From what I understand stamina is mostly transferable between muscle groups, as it uses your CV system as a base. You would still need to develop strength in different parts of your body though, as running will only boost your CV system and not so much durability in your arms if you are looking for stamina in punching or grappling. Getting stamina there depends on either building overall strength or simply repeating the exercises.

    Training for explosiveness means training for power. That is separate from stamina and even pretty different from speed. Power breaks down into plyometric, ballistic and dynamic. Plyometric for easiness sake, can be explained as leaving the ground in some fashion. You would for instance see that on Darebee from clapping pushups or jumping squats. Ballistic means to throw something, generally something heavy. If you have access to a medicine ball then there are lots of drills that you can do. If not grabbing a decent sized rock and doing some shot putting works too. Dynamic is more like taking regular exercises and making them more dynamic. You will see this on Darebee sometimes as well as with exercises being done quickly or slowly.

    There is nothing wrong with training inspired by vigilantes (as long as you don't have any rooftop battles with supervillains in your training plan). Whatever gets you motivated and healthy is better than what doesn't. A bit of internet research will give you some themed workouts for both Daredevil and Nightwing (though be warned, Nightwing is considered the best acrobat in all of comics, those inspired workouts therefore tend to be very tough). At the same time whatever you find elsewhere is not going to be very different from what you find here, just with a different name.

    CaptainCanuck My goal is to be able to run fast, have stamina for martial arts and occasionally do explosive moves... I also want to tone my muscles, because I realised I am scrawny AF... Don't laugh at it, but I train imagining what would I have to do to be a vigilante(!)... Kinda like Nightwing or Dredevil... Stupid goal, I know, but keeps me going...

    It depends on what you are trying to achieve. Hebert's attitude to fitness is that we have three basic forms of fitness - pursuit, combat and escape. Probably rightfully so he made the point that to varying degrees that humans are designed biologically to do one of those three things at any given time. However our knowledge of how our bodies work has evolved from our basic needs. So the question shouldn't be if it is possible but rather what benefit you are looking for. Running every day will tax your body and increase your chances of injury. That said in the past I have run almost every day and not had significant injury. It might help to first of all define your goals and try to build towards those. Choosing a plan is better than just choosing exercises.

    Can I do speed training every day

    Hello again..!
    so, can I do 10-20' of jogging, then 10 segments of 30" fast/60-90" recovery every day as cardio, then 100 push ups-100 squats-100 abs, on top of kick boxing/muay Thai three evenings a week? And the weekends 10-12 km as long steady run???
    TIA
Working...
