Re: How much training per week?

I get what you're saying but the hours you put in have a lot to do with it. It just means you have to sacrifice more than the average person. I can't accurately judge that person because I don't know their complete schedule. I'm not saying they should train 4 hours a day like BJ Penn but 4 hours doesn't seem like a lot.
Put it another way - I'm not very impressed by a 20 year old doing 40 front rolls, but I'm extremely impressed by an 83 year old doing 4 (another actual example). I suppose that it depends on what you think that your goals ought to be, but I can guarantee you that the 83 year old is making a greater sacrifice, as is the person in the first example that I made.

Best,

Chris
