I honestly think that before I joined this forum I was wasting a lot of my time in my training by training inefficiently. Sometimes less is more.

Harlan,
Yes one must pay bills and yes there is a little thing called life...whats your point?

I understood that in your post you stated that you only have the forum on when you are at work, therefore it doesn't interfere with your training.

Well, unless I misunderstood (a chronic issue of mine )...it seems that you are stating that if one is here one is not training.... when one could be training. Most folks are here because of a lack of choice in that matter.

If I didn't have to work, if I didn't have kids, if I didn't have a good movie I wanted to see, etc....I would be training. Training is just one part of life...not a priority.

Well, basically, I would find out hints from people which my instructor didn't give me. For example, there would be advice about certain things which is phrased differently which helped me overcome my problems easily.

Also, there are lots of resources on how to strengthen yourself, improve your endurance and improve your flexibility which helps to learn techniques easier and faster.

Sure, it's no replacement for proper training but knowledge like that can help you improve more quickly.

Better to benefit from other peoples' experience than be ignorant about the wider world.

Yes Harlan that is exactly what I am saying.

There are many types of things one can do while viewing the forum

When I peruse the forum, which is rare, I try to do dynamic stretches or squats or something while I am reading.

I would hate to think that young or aspiring Martial Artists would ever get the idea that typing and reading is synonymous with training.

Just finished my second set of 25 squats

Just curious, have you heard of the concept of overtraining?

Leo,

Over training? do you mean to the point of injury?
How do you over train? is that like overstudying for an exam. "Darn I studied so much for this exam and knew all the material" so I got an A.

P.S In my opinion there are no shortcuts. Only hard work and dedication and determination make things easier.

Mike -

I'm not sure I get your point at all. If you don't like the forum, why are you here? Most folks are here because they cannot be training for one reason or another. I am also at work for 9 hours a day.

No, don't worry, I was just curious whether you were aware of the advantages of adequate rest when mental and physical development is concerned. No worries, I'm not saying you should train any less than you do.
