The Batman

After a much needed vacation last week, I decided to shoot back into work and train Kenny Florian on Friday. This week Kurt Pellegrino came into town to help Kenny Florian prepare for this fight on August 9th against Roger Huerta. Kurt is also a client and I put him through the paces of the Burn with the Kearns' Gas in the Tank workout. He has a fight coming up in 7 weeks. It was a new type of training fort Kurt and he loved it. He said " this really makes sense to me before a fight to train this way."

Climbing Out

Some days even trainers don't want to train.

Yesterday, for the life of me I could not get out of bed at 5am to workout. So I decided I would train later in the day between a corporate consulting project in the am and in the afternoon training Kenny. I considered it my penance for not getting up in the am. Here's what I did
Climbed 246 stairs for 30 minutes with a 30 lb vest on. This was a killer in the heat, but I had to finish. Then I did 8 circuit station with a 40 lb medicine ball with a 10 vest on.

1. Snatches
2. Squat toss
3. Bent over rows
4. 3 way lunges with grappling grip
5. Shoulder toss
6. Across toss
7. Zercher get ups
8. Overhead 4 flght stair carries.

I was glad when I was done! You can see this workout on the bonus section my Basement Tape 1 for MMA Conditioning Strength and Hypertrophy Laying the Foundation
. I used a medicine ball for more grip strength.

Till next time "Cry in Training Laugh in Battle"

This has been a very interesting week for me. I have continued to get Kenny Florian ready for UFC 87 which is 4 weeks away. (man does time fly). Kurt Pellegrino came in town and after Ultimate Fight Night 13 and decided he want me to train him and work with Team Florian. It is a honor to have such a top notch fighter in my stable as well as Team Florian.

A Great Response

The sales of my Martial Arts Conditioning DVDs have been unreal - they continue to run off the shelf. We have been making partnerships with great companies. Thank you all for believing in me and my products. They are literally selling around the globe. We are also in talks with and Sherdog to carry the titles as well.

Dale Hartt makes his UFC debut on 7/19 at Ultimate Fight Night 14. For the past 2 weeks I helped him get ready. Good luck Dale, come back with a win!
