Above we have discussed some basic points that needs clarification before starting of conditioning plan. Now lets come to our main point of discussion i.e conditioning plan. Here-under we have discussed a conditioning plan and how to increase the intensity of conditioning.
First day is most important day of this whole conditioning plan. Everybody runs for shortcuts, but a true success never have any shortcut. So just focus on basics. Never put extra effort in starting. Start with a 2 km walk and than 2 km running and it is enough for first day. Remeber to give 1 km walk after running, this will help the dog to relax his muscles. Running should be as slow as possible. I suggest speed of 15 km per hour.
Now the second day has arrived and start with a warm-up walk of 2 kms, than give a 3 kms running. Speed should be same as for first day. If we start to give excessive pressure on muscles and lungs that can adversly effect your dog. Give 1 km walk after running.
3rd & 4th Day
On 3rd & 4th day start with same 2 km walk but give 4 km of running with 1.5 km walk after running. Speed should be same as for first two days. Never try for shortcut and put extra pressure I always suggest let his body to adopt this conditioning plan for better results.
5th & 6th Day
Start everyday with same style i.e 2 km walk. This walk gives time to warm up your dog and let his body ready for running. Today running should be 5 km and speed should be same as for previous days. These first 6 days are for just making your dog prepare for upcoming hard-work.
Many people suggest for rest on this day, but I am not agry with them. You can reduce the practice time and distance but never give a break untill it is very urgent. Keep this day for sprints. Give your dog some sprints in just playing mood. Through stone to here and there or let him plag wkth other dogs so he can be relax and should get some physical workout. Pitbulls normally runs 5 km even on their first day, but if you are looking for a long time conditioning plan than start slowly.
8th & 9th Day
Always start the day with a warm-up walk of 2 kms. After that give a 5 km running on 8th & 9th day, but with slight increase in speed keeping under 20 km. After that give a 1 km walk and 200 metre sprint and than 2 km walk.
