    Opportunity?

    My old friend of mine, we have the same hobby, and I dont have any job right now,
    so I dont know what to say to him. I would love to train again, well its jiu-jitsu but
    I dont know have a job right now so I dont feel like coming back to train again, if I
    dont have a job.He is a web designer working at home,And in my mind if I would train
    back again with him, would he gave me a job also?He told me to train again but Im
    busy studying web design and development.

    You need to go back to school with that incomprehensible paragraph lol and learn how to put together a comprehensible sentence.

    Facts

    1) You and your "old" friend have the same hobby
    2) You don't have a job (mentioned 3 times)
    3) Your "old" friend is a web designer who works from home
    4) Your "old"friend wants you to train??? (for what? Well its Jiu-Jitsu??)
    5) You don't feel like training again
    6) Your "old" friend thinks you should train
    7) You are to busy studying web design to train

    This would be easier to understand - if in fact I even understood what you were trying to say.

    A friend of mine thinks I should get back into train (Jiu-Jitsu) but I am torn because I do not have a job and I am currently busy spending my free time studying web design. What should I do?

    My response because I care

    Why couldn't you do both? I understand you need a job, but you probably aren't going to work out all day and night like a MMA fighter does. Can't you balance training, studying and looking for a job at the same time?

    If you want even more free time, do Tabata training instead of Jiu-Jitsu training. 20 minutes of Tabatas and you'll feel like you want to puke the first time...then you go back and do it again a week later to show everyone that you're completely out of your mind.

    (And yes, I have done Tabata training in the past.)

    Jeebus. I tried those. I did sprints 15 secs on, 30 secs off. The first 3 or 4 times I went out, I was only good for about 6 sets. I run often, 3+ days per week, and I was hurting pretty bad. I finished out the 5K trail, and collapsed on my couch. I was toast.

    I didn't even know that was a variant. The traditional Tabata that I know of is 20 seconds on as hard as you can, 10 off, repeat 7 more times. The four minutes you chew up is one Tabata. Depending on the Tabata, you're pretty gassed afterward. I can flex my quads the way juicers can flex their pecs and I was sucking wind by the end of a few of the leg variants (e.g. box jumps). Like what this guy does.



    There's also a 40/30/20 variant that I know of where you do 40 seconds at "hard", 20 rest, 30 at "harder", 15 rest, 20 at "hardest". This is more for exercises such as bicep curls where you wrap a resistance band around your foot and then you curl it from kneeling, crouched, and fully upright (which increases the tension on the resistance band as you go).

    I just wish they offered it at my "new" gym. Maybe I'll have to go find one of those Tabata timer tracks.
