    Cardio is a bit of a misnomer.

    My general understanding of sprints and LHT is they're suppose to condition anaerobic metabolism (Cori Cycle) which then drives aerobic metabolism (Krebs Cycle). The purpose of the slow movement is to minimize injury and because muscles can generate more force when contracting slowly.

    Sounds like perhaps your training with the grappling dummy didn't make you metabolically stronger, and those exercises turned into your skills training at the expense of your defense class skills.

So I guess my long winded question here is does anyone have any suggestions or ideas about my loss of endurance in this case.
    It helps to understand what's going on metabolically. That is, knowing the intent may be more important than following the letter. LHT to get metabolically stronger for health. Use the increased strength to improve at your functional skills for your work and fun.

    Has it been awhile since your previous entry level ground defense class? If it has maybe you just need to get re-conditioned for it. For me personally I work out 6 days a week and I run hill sprints once per week as well as interval running once per week. But when I started playing full court basketball again I was gassed relatively quick even though I felt like I would be in better basketball shape. (I haven't played full court basketball for over a year at this point) After a few more full court basketball sessions though it became easier. I follow a really strict paleo lifestyle as well not because of weight issues but because I had bad allergies which it helped me control. One thing you may consider is if you are going to teach a class maybe have a little bit more carbs pre-workout.

    People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.
