    still not sold on standing on the ball stuff.

    I would like to see the video though.

    One thing I think about this is that a lot of these guys train balls to the wall all the time and end up hurt or injured. I think that doing other things (besides always lifting heavy and doing the events) helps to give their bodies a break from those movement patterns and decreases the potential for overload and tissue trauma. I think there are some good things to take away from this video.....one of them being the idea of some sort of periodization and cycling your training and having phases.

    Specificity of training showed his advantage and the techniques he used shows me something more than just throwing steel. This little post of yours P-func did more than you think. I've been looking for something a little different than what I've been doing with traditional training techniques and MMA.

    re-evaluation of your training is critical!

    I wonder what the rest of the DVD looks like and what he did for the intensive training though. I wonder if they just put this shit into a little promo video as a way to intrigue people into purchasing it.

    never been a fan of the bosu balls. My little brother's football coach had them doing like every other lift on them, overkill if you ask me.

    I don't see the point in standing on them.

    The place the foot in an overly supinated position. They make the knees go bow legged. Neither of these positions are beneficial. You can only use so much intensity on them as well.

    If you want to challenge your balance and still work intenstly try unilateral work....single leg RDL, single leg squat, lunges, 1-arm presses, 1-arm rows, etc..

    If I understand you correctly ... I saw the balancing act as training the muscles to keep his balance while he lifts as a kind of double benefit ... you see the poor posture needed to get that done as not worth it. The idea is a good one but not the method?

    I like the way the guy from ross training lifts. I know a lot of his stuff is geared towards boxers- like his band punches- but a lot of stuff he does is so bare bones- like DB snatches with unilateral DB bench presses- not to mention combos like jumps with rope pullups and the one arm standing roll outs- so awesome. I'm trying to get strong enough to do those...

    By about one half a second. He was taller and had a better roll on the last stone ball.


    ***Edit ... he did have to win other events and score well overall to position himself so he could take advantage of that .5 second though
