When you are training for martial arts, one of the best things that you can do is increase both your endurance and your concentration. Increasing your endurance will allow you to last longer while still being strong when you are sparring or doing exercises. Having a better concentration will help you achieve better form in your fighting and also help you maintain your quickness and agility during a fight. There are obviously plenty of ways to help increase your endurance and concentration, but one great way to do it while improving your overall fitness is cardio. This can be achieved through a number of methods. Read on to find out!
This is probably the most popular and most obvious form of getting cardio. You can do this pretty much anywhere–on the road, in a park, or even on a treadmill in the comfort of your own home. Try to run without stopping. If you feel like you are going too fast to keep up the pace, just slow down to make sure that you keep going without stopping.
Biking is another great way to get your cardio going. Although you will need to purchase a bike, it is a great way to get outside and see a lot of scenery while doing your cardio. This is best done on trails or open country roads.
if you are a frequent traveller, one of the best ways to get your cardio in is to do jump roping. It’s surprisingly difficult! Try to do it for 15 minutes without stopping.
