"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

I practice jiu jitsu on a regular basis and I use HIT to help me.

I decided to set a goal to compete in the Master World Championships in Las Vegas.

I started my camp about 9 weeks out and trained really hard leading up to the tourney. At 55 I had a few dings, knee pain and shoulder pain but not too bad.

I did 1 HIT session per week and for the last 2 weeks I only did static holds as I was getting over trained. (I wasn't thinking correctly as the stress of competing at that level gets to me a bit, I should have taken those weeks off)

I cut weight to do so and ended up losing a refs decision in the first round but what a Blast is was to challenge myself at the level.

Here's a video clip

I'm on the right to begin. BTW, it was a war for me. My body was on fire lol.

Let me know your thoughts on training for this type of competition as I'll prolly do it again.

I trained several athletes over the years, some of whom went to world championship status. I will tell you this... as sport specific training increases in demands and fatigue, the more you need to phase out weight training. With you being active in the sport, you really don't lose much strength once you phase out strength training. Not enough to be concerned.

I think you are correct! I just love the wts so I incorporate them but the demands of training do make it difficult.

I actually modeled some training ideas you put forth in the dvd when you trained the boxer. I've reduced the amount of training and will probably move further in that area. Even cutting it out completely a month prior to competing.
I made a couple of errors in over dieting and a bit too much training but overall it was a great experience.

Yes, and when you cut it out completely, that doesn't mean you still can train... maybe on a certain day you will feel like doing some leg presses and pulldowns... something simple and straight forward (stopping short of failure in order to recovery quickly). When you incorporate sports with weight training, it's as important to go by feel, as to when you want to train or think you need it and for how much, rather than following a fixed schedule.
