What should the beginners focus on?
How about advanced students?
Check out a short interview I have conducted with my Master of strength, Pavel Tsatsouline, StrongFirst Chief instructor.
Listen carefully to his answers, and apply them not only to your strength training, but martial arts training as well.
Meeting Pavel was definitely one of my turning points – not only in my martial arts career, but life as well. Pavel is not only very skilled and knowledgable, but first and foremost kind and humble gentleman, a role-model for all of his students, and true Master in the traditional martial arts sense. So are the Masters, Senior Instructors and Team Leaders we had the privilege to learn from in various countries in Europe.
If you are looking for minimalistic strength and conditioning protocol, don’t look further and check out his excellent book Simple & Sinister. Follow the program to the letter and you will get stronger, move better and get cardio from hell! Your sparring partners will notice, trust me.
I currently take care of strength and conditioning prep of Czech elite MMA fighters from Penta Gym, including currently the only Czech UFC fighter, Viktor Pesta.
What do you think the guys do? Simple and Sinister protocol, of course, and have some excellent results. One of my strength students, Michal Horejsi, actually just won 3 MMA fights in one day last Saturday.
Simple & Sinister delivers – as the Chief says: Repeat untill strong!
