Condition and stamina question.
Anyone have tips on quickly building stamina and conditioning?
Any good books?
Anything in particular? I like Matt Furey's Combat Conditioning, good basic stuff, though many people seem to hate the guy.
How about kettlebells? Try 'Power to the People' by Pavel Tsatsouline.
For quick strength, strength endurance, or busting through plateaus, I like density training. Charles Staley has some good stuff, I've also read some good articles by coach Ethan Reeves.
There's a lot of good books out there.... the only thing you can do is to focus. and have discipline...
this guy's site has a lot of videos and free info... his free workout is pretty good too. check it out:
MMA Performance Coach Eric Wong's Blog, workout articles, MMA workouts, training ideas, nutrition, strength and conditioning
I do 2 to 3 hours of running and jogging in the field and high hills to develop my stamina. Aside from that I play tennis this is also good in developing your stamina. Also try to do some 300 spartan workouts aside form stamina you can have a good body shape.

Running 2-3 hours isn't going to increase your stamina/ endurance, just prove that you have it. For example, if I drive a car at 120 mph I am NOT increasing it's mph, I am simply displaying what the car is already capable of. However, if I want to increase the mph and sustain that over a period of time (1/4 mile, Indy 500, whatever my race may be) I would have to ADD MUSCLE to the engine. Likewise, for a human you would have to make them stronger and increase their lung capacity (not even getting to what actually fuels the body- nutrition).
The training you are talking about is only focusing on the oxidative metobolic pathway. (anything outside of 3 mins). However you are neglecting the phosphagen (anything under 10 seconds) and glycolytic (usually lasts between 20 sec- not yet 3 min). The phosphagen is the highest energy source, then next is glycolytic and the lowest is going to be the oxidative- that you are talking about.
High intensity workouts are better methods for increasing lung capacity. Building muscles also helps because you are increasing the work load in which you body can move. However, long slow runs do nothing but measure current progress and tear down the body.
How about using an elliptical at different resistance every 2 mins from level 2 to level 8 for a half hour a day?
are you looking to just get in shape or get cardiovascularly fit for something particular?
Just to give you a an idea of the type of athlete I am I've always done well in Sprints but shit in Long Distance running.
I just want to be able to add stamina and cardiovascular fitness to my repertoire not to mention it's good for your heart.
