    10 minute run a day to improve my cardio

    I used to be a wrestler but COVID shut down all of the teams. My cardio has gone down quite a bit. If I was to do a 10 minute run everyday which would be longer than a wrestling match would it help me be able to last longer in the match when it starts up again? Or should I do other forms of cardio?

    If you are currently out of shape, then starting out with 10 minutes is a good idea. You can start with jogging, then start incorporating intervals. Gradually move up to doing high-intensity intervals.

    After you get decent at that in progress slows down, you will probably want to incorporate other modalities for conditioning. For example, if you can get yourself a heavy sandbag and throw that around for 10 minutes that would probably better simulate the conditioning you need for wrestling. You can look up ideas for typical GPP work and incorporate that. If you do not have any access to any equipment, then you can do brief circuits with push-ups, burpees, etc, doing them as fast as possible.

    As a type of endurance-strength training it will supplement your main training more than condition it. It's more general training considering you don't run in wrestling, but it is pretty efficient for what it is.

    I feel like jump rope might be something to look into for that type of cardio.

    Given the approximate similarity between the two, I think it would be a better idea instead to run an individual mile and try to beat your time, holding the distance rather than the time constant. This will help circumvent stagnation as you are consistently challenging yourself under a clear criterium.

    Most people start with a goal of a 30 min walk/jog.
    Why only 10 min?

    Pushing a sled/prowler seems like ideal conditioning for wrestling and it's just great in general, but having access to that equipment could be challenging.

    For speed training yeah, but there's also pace training. 12-13 minutes was actually a nice sweet spot as a day-to-day practice and speed test. That was on a treadmill with a moderated pace but yeah.

    It's better to go for atleast 25-30 minutes run a day.
