8 Simple Ways To Make More Time for Training – Martial Arts Vancouver

8 Simple Ways To Make More Time for Training – Martial Arts Vancouver

Not all of us have the luxury of time. Whether we’re students, working professionals or stay at home moms, there’s always something that seems to get in the way of our training time. As much as we’d like to work on becoming the best versions of ourselves mentally and physically, 24 hours just doesn’t seem like enough time to fit everything in.

Don’t stress! Today, Evolve Daily shares 8 Simple Ways To Make More Time For Training:

1) Do away with idle time!

How many times have you caught yourself spending an unnecessary amount of time just scrolling through your phone? What about all those wasted hours you spent watching TV shows? Don’t you feel like you could have used this time on something more important — like training?

Take a look back at your day and make a mental note of the time you spent idling away. When you’re done, try to rearrange your schedule to replace idle time with training time. You’d be surprised at how much more training time you have!

 

2) Be more efficient at work!

If you find yourself checking Facebook every twenty minutes at work, chances are, you’re not being very time efficient. Those long lunch breaks, leisurely walks to the coffee machine, and catch up sessions with the office cleaning lady are also enough to cut into a big chunk of your workday.

Instead of finding ways to procrastinate, why not be more efficient and actually focus on work? Set aside all your distractions, concentrate, and just get the job done. By the time you’re finished with work, you’ll be able to fit in an extra Muay Thai class!

 

3) Get lots of rest!

There’s no doubt about it — the number of hours you sleep per night has a direct correlation with your performance in training, as well as your ability to train. Studies show that REM sleep gives the brain and body energy and if cut short, slows recovery. Thus, the more you rest, the more time your body has to recover, giving you more time to train.

 

5) Plan your days well!

We should never forget to stretch before and after a workout!

We should never forget to stretch before and after a workout!

Back when we were students, the importance of sticking to a schedule was always ingrained in us. A schedule allowed us ample study time to perform well in school and also gave us a few minutes of play each day. As adults with the freedom of creating our own schedule and enough smart phone apps to help us manage, following a schedule has definitely become easier.  Planning our days just like we did back in school  (and sticking to the plan) gives us the opportunity to make time for more important things —  like training.

 

6) Make your lunch hour count!

If we can’t seem to find time to train before and after our regular daily routines, why not train during lunchtime? Although it might seem a bit cumbersome to fit in exercise, a shower, a quick commute, and lunch — all it takes is careful planning and coordination on your part.

There are many ways to make training at lunch a breeze. You can pack your gym bag with lunch that is easy to eat on the go, and clothes are easy to change into after. One thing to remember is that you should never replace a meal with a workout. So always make it a point to eat after training, even if it’s just a small snack.

 

7) Just get it over with!

Training both gi and no gi Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will make you a more well-rounded student.

We understand that not everybody is a morning person. Working out first thing in the morning might take some time to get used to, but the benefits might make anyone think otherwise. It gives you less reason to procrastinate — the later in the day you work out, the more distractions potentially stand in the way of your training.

Apart from this, you’ll also feel more focused and energized for the rest of the day. Going through your workday will feel like a breeze because you’re ready to concentrate and get down to business. More importantly, you would be able to make time for other important things — like spending quality time with your family.

 

8) Involve your significant other!

Want to find more time to train? Why not ask your significant other to join you! Experts say that training together not only strengthens a relationship, it also gives you both a new and exciting way to bond. Instead of spending quality time elsewhere, you might find that training together at the gym is the perfect way to strengthen your relationship as you work together to become the best version of yourselves.

 

With enough effort, there’s no doubt that making time for training should be simple for anyone. Just like everything else in life, all we need is to weigh our priorities and balance our lives in order to meet our goals – training or otherwise.

So tell us, how will you make more time for training this week?

Here is some information on our Kids Jiu-Jitsu Vancouver program:

Vancouver’s Premier Mixed Martial Arts school for children and youths.


With special attention given to motor skill development, mental focusing attributes, and children’s inherent capabilities. Youth kickboxing Vancouver Children’s and Teen classes are designed to emphasize:

– DISCIPLINE – RESPECT – CONFIDENCE DEVELOPMENT – SCHOOL ACHIEVEMENT

The development of these qualities and principals are given extra attention because they build a strong foundation in the three battles: the Mind, the Body, and the Spirit.If developed properly, then success is assured.

We engage in a brief zazen meditation at the beginning of each class to become present, focused and prepared for what is to come in the class, and, at the end of class, we meditate briefly to lock in the experiences, center our energy, and commit to continuing making progress. As a regular practice to enhance learning, we also repeat strongly the Tenets of the School, Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self Control, and Indomitable Spirit, at the end of each class to solidify the development of these qualities for Kids Mixed Martial Arts Vancouver.

 

Our Qualification Code, which is a form to be filled out by the parent and student for advancement in rank, for Kids MMA Vancouver at Posener’s Pankration/MMA and Muay Thai, highlights that respect and school achievement, in addition to the development of combative skills in mixed martial arts, are highly valued, esteemed and developed.

 

The development of equanimity of spirit is also given special attention in order to deal with challenges well; especially in regards to winning and losing. The attributes of effort, determination, skill development and spirit are given special attention, as these qualities will lead to enduring success. The goal of truly doing one’s best, regardless of outcome, especially in regards to some combative sport applications, is given priority to help develop progress, growth and character. The consistent and continuous goal of making progress in all areas, both on the mat and off, will help develop a student’s full long term potential for Kids/Youth MMA Vancouver at Posener’s Pankration/MMA and Muay Thai.

Francis Tiapis wins Ax Fighting MMA Title: Posener’s MMA Vancouver

The New Ax Fighting MMA Champion is Francis Tiapis representing Posener’s MMA Vancouver. Francis wins the title in the second round by rear naked choke submission.  Many members of our team and Instructor team helped Francis get the belt but first, here is what happened. My interpretation is based on memory and I haven’t seen any video of the fight.

 

 

Round 1: The fight was largely on the feet with striking and wrestling. Both fighters exchanged and wrestled for position. Francis had an edge in striking and was able to defend the cage work and put Hunter against the cage. Francis also did some good ground and pound from the top half guard. Unfortunately Francis broke his hand in the first round. The break has been confirmed. It was a good round for both fighters. Francis was ready and Hunter demonstrated he was well versed in the cage and had good experience, as his 15 mma fights would indicate.

 

 

Round 2: I think Francis knew his hand was injured badly and he decided to put the fight on the ground. Hunter was able to maintain guard but Francis was able to pass to half guard, execute ground and pound and then pass guard. Hunter re guarded and the Jiu-Jitsu battle was on. I instructed Francis to pass more strongly and stabilize the north south position, which Hunter utilized his pendulum to re guard and Francis had to battle for another pass and transition to north south position again and he was successful. He then worked to mount, held mount, stabilized mount and during the transitions Francis was able to maintain top position and sink in the rear naked choke for the submission victory and claim the title. It was a very exciting match and huge congratulations to Francis on taking the title with a clean, clear victory. Thank you to Hunter and his team, as they are great competitors and a good group.

 

Special thanks to our awesome instructor team and assistants: Costa Rojas, George Kassimatis, Paul Gibbons, Minna Kim, Victor Tiapis, Gus Rodriquez for the strength and conditioning and all the other members of the school who helped out.. Thank you from Posener’s MMA Vancouver.
