    i know this is an old vid and we have gotten alot better since then with conditioning but dont you think this is a bit light for a top mma fighter? everyone keeps saying how insane this is that he trains this hard but to me it seems basic especially for that type of level

    Well, to be fair, everyone must look a little light to you.

    Sean Sherk is probably still to this day in better condition than 99% of this forum.

    Do you think a 20 min show really captured his entire training regimen?

    Watched it when it first came out as I was a huge fan of Sherk. Just seemed like gym action for a show.

    I used to think this was a fantastic means of conditioning a fighter, and considering Sherk had possibly the best gas tank in UFC history AND plenty of power, it is definitely adequate. But since then Ive learned more and currently I am of the opinion that when it comes to S&C the result is all that matters. A lot of gyms today, apparently yours included, still do these marathon S&C routines with a ton of volume and very high intensity, but I am seeing that more and more trainers are pushing a regimen with less volume, less ballistic type movements, but more often and with less variety. Paul McVeigh started training his guys this way years ago as an experiment and said it resulted in all time best conditioning for himself included. Ive seen the Alliance trainer in San Diego speaking of the same type of training. Nowadays I would have a fighter do a much more basic S&C routine still done at a high work rate but with much safer movements.
