Today I’m going to answer one of those frequently asked questions as well as one that is ‘less’ frequently asked – but darn good.
Many people write to ask me whether or not they can do the exercises in Combat Conditioning on a daily basis. My answer is the same today as it was 10 years ago, when the first edition came out.
‘But in weight training they say ….’
Yes, I understand what they say in weight training. We’re not talking about that. We’re talking about Combat Conditioning, and … just like gymnastics, it can be done daily.
You can choose to do it two or three times a week if you’d like. Or you can do it everyday. I believe you get optimum results when you do something everyday. Some days you do a hard workout. Other days you go light – but you do something everyday.
Now, with that in mind, let’s look at an email from a man who lives in the ‘Windy City.’
My name is Richard and I have a couple of questions for you. First I purchased your Combat Conditioning package and I love it. My question is can I do the Royal Court more than once per day? Or can I do Hindu squats throughout the day before or after the Royal Court? I am currently up to 50 Hindu Squats and 15 hindu push ups and I wall walk for three times almost touching my chest to the wall. Do you think that this will slow me down because I train the same exercise throughout the day?
M.F.: Richard, the answer is ‘yes.’ Here’s the deal: When first starting out with the Royal Court, your maximum repetitions are not very high on any of the main exercises. So one of the ways to build up strength and endurance is doing a set of Hindu Pushups or Hindu squats – or both – several times a day. It does not have to be a maximum rep set. In fact, tis better if it’s just a good push. If every hour on the hour you do 10 Hindu pushups and 25 Hindu squats – and you do this eight times during the day, you’ve increased the overall workload and you will improve. This is one of those secrets Karl Gotch taught me when I started. Key thing is that you don’t max out each day. Just train and enjoy the journey and go for a maximum goal a couple times a month. You’ll find this method quickly accelerates your progress.
Well, my friend, that’s all for now.
