  • A Question for Boxers and/or Martial Artists...

    Does eating primal hurt your wind (cardio) when you train? Just curious as I'm about to start training boxing. Thanks for any advice or tips!!

    Nope. Do sprints once a week and your cardio will be fine.
    You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

        Nope! As to your follow up question; although i know you were addressing GC, I'm taking Judo/MMA/Jits, and Muay Thai. I also do my primary art of JKD on the side

          Hurt? More like help. I don't kickbox anymore except to play around and get some exercise on a bag, but if I had known how to eat like this when I was younger... I did get a friend of mine who competes in grappling to switch to primal and he swears it's the best thing he ever did to get in shape.

            I concur!

              I used to do Krav Maga and would love to get into it again.

                Going high-carbs helps me a lot with BJJ. I recuperate faster and feel better. I'm very active though, and pretty lean. I generally eat low-carbs without thinking about it, and my performance starts to diminish a lot after 4-5 days in a row of grappling if I'm not careful.

                  What he said. You need to make sure you keep your carbs up post workout (assuming you train at a high level) and the meals afterwards to recover properly and actually have energy

                    Frank Mir just switched to a Paleo-style diet after a failed vegetarian experiment. He feels much better.

                      I think it helps my cardio. I definitely feel lighter when I am rolling and less to move means less energy

                        No issues here.

                        I do sometimes eat a piece of fruit ~ 2 hours before I train if needed, and it gives me a little energy boost. I also drink watered-down unsweetened ice tea with some lemon or lime juice as well to add a little pep to my step. :-)
