    Hey Smitty,

    Great blog!! Didn’t see much posterior chain work apart from the tyre overheads. Not much pulling to balance out the pressing. Only a snap shot though I guess?

  2. Jim Smith Says:

    Definitely a snap shot, but you are exactly right!

    Great Blog! Nice work from Diesel crew…. Didn’t see Grip training! We all see your combat core Training manual so probably will be a better option for abdominals and of course posterior chain more rows.

    Does not look like he is training for any strength or power just doing weighted cardio and he is not the only MMA Guy with that problem. He looks great but I don’t think he is getting all that he can from his lifting.

  5. Martin Says:

    Practically every fighter I’ve known has been way too biased toward the conditioning. As mentioned above this clip affirms that.
    I would like to see greater ROM on almost all of the pushes he does, and he definitely could benefit from some heavy pulls.

    SMITTY, HE IS SHORT CHANGING HIS MOVEMENTS AND NOT USING ENOUGH WEIGHT! I SAW NO SLED NO BIG TIRE AND WHAT THE HELL, NO KETTLEBELLS.IT WAS A SHORT CLIP AND I’M NOT PICKING ON HIM BUT I’VE BEEN TOLD THAT PRESSING BEHIND THE NECK IS BAD ALSO. BILL

    As already highlighted we don’t see full ROM utilised in these exercises. Possibly leading to poor flexibility affecting his ground game which is a weak point. A big emphasis in maximizing pain and possibly not enough on technique. But we only get a glimpse and its easy to criticize. He is a phenomeanl athlete.

    heavy weight, thats what he’s missing for big guy like him id like to see him move some heavy weight. i undertsand he’s doing conditioning and he’s not training for that kind of strength but so far the fighters i train, obviously not his caliber, have gotten alot better as a result of the heavy weights
