    I've watched two interviews with Nick Curson about his strenght and conditioning principles. He trained guys like Dos Anjos, Werdum, Machida, boxer Ruslan Provodnikov, kickboxer Joe Schilling.

    He is pro-plyometrics and ballistic methods of training.
    He argues that lifting with heavy weights is not good for an athlete.

    Some of his exercises he promotes are really interesting.

    I do the ballwork that's in ProBodX. And I swear by it.

    The best warmup hands down for a pro athlete or serious amateur.

    But it's a decent workout for me.

    I haven't seen the vids. And I have no idea who this Curson guy is, but I'm willing to bet he doesn't think lifting heavy weights for any of us here is a bad thing. In case this was an attempt to discredit the benefits of heavy lifting so that you can continue to be weak.

    Isn't that guy at 0:46 too short for the NBA ?

    Hasn't had a great deal of success lately. In fact, he's had shocking success.
    Also, he goes against aerobic training which the majority of the best fighters seem to do and he goes against generic strength training which the majority of the best fighters also do.
    He works a lot of foot speed etc because its specific to fighting but in the JRE podcast he says that he has no idea how isometric style training relates to fighting. Even though wrestling and clinch work is predominantly isometric based.
    Generally not much of a fan.

    Taras Shelestyuk is probably the physically weakest and least explosive guy in boxing. For an Olympian, he's also known to gas hard
