Are you strategically pacing yourself to win fights? Armed with an understanding of how to use a heart rate monitor to determine your own unique training pace, you can not only boost your fight fitness…

But crucially, learn how to strategically pace your efforts during a fight to produce the best tactical effect. Just add your own style and technical ability!

By training at your maximum sustainable work rate, and learning when you’re either over or under this, and by how far, you can strategically time your biggest efforts for the greatest impact. And keep yourself safe and recharged when it’s needed too.
