why? because his body has to use SO much air to keep those muscles moving.
Now a guy like Fedor has incredibly fighting conditioning, he has a layer of chub on him.
It actually helps him stayed in amazing condition cause your body doesnt require as much air and can burn some fat and use it for energy.
Where do you get this information from?! having a layer of subcutaneous lipids (FAT) won't make you a better fighter...
Phil baroni was a bad example he just sucks, its true that larger muscles need to use more "air" *ahemm* oxygen
to be more specific, is what is being pumped through ur blood to those muscles.
Cardio is the word you are looking for which is an essential part of any fighter's conditioning, having good cardio would equal having a large gas tank, you see your heart is always pumping and working along with your lungs to bring more oxygen into ur body the rate of how much oxygen you are using up and the amount you are getting determines your endurance (proper breathing is important too btw). Also it is important to mention that once ur muscles dont get enough oxygen they produce lactic acid, which gives u that sensation of "burning" when u are at your limit, its not fat... if you want to be specific lactic acid is formed as a result of glucose being incompletely metabolized.
Fat burning doesn't work that way, its not like OH I NEED SOME ENERGY *BURRRRRN*, he would be fucking ripped after each training session, the fat you have under your skins its actually ur body's last resort energy so its harder for the body to process fat into energy than it is with carbs which are much easier to process.
In other words Fedor emelianenko has better conditioning than phil baroni not because he has a layer of fat but he has better cardio do not get them confused...
