Warrior conditioning kept simple.

Warm up
Fight
Cool down
Sleep
Recover
Study
Warm up
Practice
Strengthening
Cool down
Recover

Simply stated:

Fight
Recover
Study
Practice

This is necessary for conditioning.

Fight dynamically
Recover quickly
Study intelligently
Practise diligently

A warrior conditions the body and mind for maximised effectiveness and efficiency.

A warrior leaves behind what is unnecessary and only brings what is useful.

A warrior notices strengths and weaknesses where others do not.

A warrior knows that an untrained person can kill just as easily as one that has a lifetime of training.

A warrior knows that having the right key can open any lock.

Warrior's condition themselves like warriors should, without doubt or hesitation.

Are you conditioning yourself as well as you should?

Warrior attributes:

Fortitude, cunnineess, diversity, wit, courage, adaptability, stamina, skill, resilience, agility, determination, strength, speed, accuracy, perserverance, stelthnes, tactical, sense of timing, survivalist...

When looking in to the lives of warriors the training was oftern more brutal than the fighting.

Perhaps this is why it is better to;

Sweat more when training than it is to bleed when fighting.

As ancient warriors condition were harsh when training, perhaps to learn from this.

To consider ourselves to be very lucky in comparison and not to be concered about sweating the small stuff, as those warriors in the past paved the way for you and me today.

Insights from a Spartan warrior.
https://youtu.be/IUApzPy6USU

A historian once told me that we do not learn from the past then it is similar to having amnesia.

Spartan warriors I am told were not athletes, as this way needs proper diets and rest, whereas the warriors standpoint was eating scrapes of food with hardly much sleep.

The way of the warrior is based on hardships, this is just a reminder that athletes and warriors are very different.

Alan,

You are 100% correct with the difference between warriors and athletes. Warriors are conditioned to survive through hardships and deprivation. They train themselves physically and mentally in order to survive on the battlefield. Whereas athletes, especially in the modern sense, do not.

Are you curious to see how Atheletes do against tribal warriors?

As there is something called "Last Man Standing" where athletes visit tribal warriors and try them out.
