In my last comp I actually entered into the sparring in was the fourth fight of the first round, got into the semis, had a 1 fight rest, had to fight again, and then had a 1-2 minute rest while the judges were swapped round, I had to do 6x3 minute rounds going all out in the space of half an hour, and the decline in my fight game was noticable after the first fight. I want to improve on this, especially if I want to move towards the cage (something i'm still contemplating if I can drop the weight class)
I was hoping to do some HIIT, but the treadmills don't seem to have a setting for it, and I'm not sure if I can make one or not, I need to speak to someone at the gym.

Since starting this thread I've been talking a lot to a friend of mine who is very nearly a fully trained personal trainer, and he certainly seems to know his stuff. He suggested something similar about instead of doing the low weight high reps, doing 2-3 sets of 10 reps at about 80% of my 1RM - suggesting that building muscle will burn more fat, something about more having more muscle itself burns more calories? I asked some questions that he hasn't got back to me on yet, but it confused me a bit . . .
I have been tempted to try the skipping rope, although it was never something I was good at as a kid . . . lol

Set Treadmill to 6% incline and to the fastest speed you can maintain for a short period of time. Do 8 "rounds" of 20secs sprinting on the treadmill with a 10second rest between each "round". The speed might have to be adjusted each round but you want to maintain as high intensity as you can each round.

I am moving toward doing a great deal more cardio than past rec center use periods, i'm set to point for no less than 30 mins cardio warm up (in addition to some an opportunity on the overwhelming sack) and afterward some cardio on warm down.

I'm not moving toward doing any substantial weights (bar discovering my one rep max) immaculately in light of the fact that I would prefer not to build up. the cases given were what i Used to do. When I wasn't worried about my weight, as i wasn't contending in any hand to hand fighting around then, so building up wasn't an issue and so forth. This time I'm attempting to make a weight class.
I usually do a 10min warm up with running, rowing or cycling.
Usually do 20x4 or something like 15 - 15 - 10 - 10 - 8 - 6 - 4 with different weights. Use the weights you know you can lift x20 times or whatever you decide is enough.
If you want to bulk up i would use heavy weights and do low reps, like 6x4.

Wait, why was he banned? What happened?
This is a huge group doing it (promotion video).
Maybe something like that or in that direction is more interesting for you than just sitting on a bike? You got to get creative if you want to enjoy your workout .
For warming up... well I think you just need to get some discpline and get through those 5-10 minutes. It's not much. We got TV screens hanging around to get your mind off of it (instead I would be watching my time constantly :P).
