Ilias Vyshutin, the Ukrainian team captain and the coach of “Knyaz” club, shared his experience:
“Speed directly depends on your endurance. For this, you need to do intensive training and systematically work on the key insights.
Do reps, using the explosive power. For example, you do some reps in the normal course for 45 seconds and then you “exploding” for 15 seconds – do it as fast as you can. After this you can split 1 minute into 2-3 intervals working with “explode”. This method can be practiced in pairs with soft armor and on a punch bag with steel weapons.
Aside from that, trainings should be various and include warming up, wrestling, hitting practice in pairs with soft armor. At the end – general physical buildup for keeping general “tonus”.
The “Iron Phoenix” club from the USA has shown a considerable progress and professional growing-up in 2017. We asked about secrets of training its captain and the USA team captain Harvey Palmer (well-known as “Aveloc Twiceborn”):
“I believe fortitude and endurance are critical factors in a buhurt combat. Training them takes years of effort, and everybody knows that the mental condition is as important as physical one. Regular intense interval workouts combined with all manner of work in harness is my main method. You should be as comfortable in your armor as you are in your casual clothes”.
