    Default Coach, yet again more questions...

    Coach, some more questions about your training protocals. (Side note, you articles have disrupted my fragile little mind in terms of what I thought I knew). As a reminder I am a grappler/Hopefull MMA future fighter...
    (1) With the 30 second rounds training, would it be possible to mix in bodyweight drills (push ups, then squats, then flutter kicks, then rope work, etc) or is there better ideas for employing Bodyweight drills ?
    (2) You say you train your athletes five times a week ? Does this include there actual sports practice ? Is every workout deicated to speed and explosiveness ? Or do you break the workouts down ?
    (3) Can you give me a teaser of what is involved in your BJJ conditioning program ? I am thinking about getting that.
    (4) Is it practical for a martal arts athlete to drop weights almost completely ? With the exception of odd objects and some olympic lifts ?
    Thanks once again for filling up the empty cup (my mind) ! If comrade Pavel is reading this don't worry evil one, I am going to be investing some of my tour pay in your beyond crunches and your flexibility book.

    Comrade:
    A pleasure to hear from you again. In review of your questions;
    (1) please clarify, as I am unsure if you are referring to possibly my skip rope patterns or some of the GPP work I have discussed.
    (2) all training is geared to improve the athlete on the field. Workouts are performed to enhance skills. Training sessions are used for a wide variety - such as to assist in recovery & regeneration.
    (3)I will try to address my BJJ training in a different post. It is a highly detailed training program that develops the athlete for competition
    (4)Weight training is imperitive in my opinion. I would not limit "strength training" to Olympic weights or Non-comforming ojbects. I know you presently do have have access to kbells but when you are, they will make a tremendous improvement to your sport training.

    Glad to hear you are purchase Pavels, flexibility & abdominal books - it is probably one of the best ways you could spend your money.

    I look forward to being of service.

    In faith,

    Coach Davies

    Hey Coach, thanks for answering the questions ! I am sore today (last night did hour of grappling followed by an hour of Mui Thai drills). On the rope questions (I read carefully the T-mag article, It seems i misunderstood the last idea). I have figured out how your skipping with rounds works. Anyways new question you mention you do 3 minutes of rope followed by drills for a minute (The break). Anything wrong with tweaking that to a minute of skipping and a minute of drills ? Actually come to think of it, maybe changing the rope timether drills ratio could be varied from work out to work out ?

    Comrade:

    There is a great variety of exercises you can do. I would suggest you start with the programs I wrote of and after you use those, it will be my honor to provide additional ones.

    I have to ask why are you considering dropping down to 1 minute rope work?
    If you reply you may wish to post a new message as well, so that I definately find it.

    In faith,

    Coach Davies
