    Brief demo of GSP's strength workout. I thought that was pretty good that they couple a strength exercise with a plyometrics exercise. GSP is even stronger and more explosive than I thought. They also have Denis Kang and David Loiseau in the last half of the video.

    Seems pretty obvious that the session was focusing on power to me. Plyometrics and complex training.

    Upto a certain level strength training helps your power, but an elite level athlete like GSP is not going to train using a beginner routine that can be found in the FAQ.

    Compound lifts are used but working for strength and power use different methods, ie power = lower weight that you attempt to lift at high speed. Max strength = slower lifts and more weight

    They do man, it's all about how they use them. If you do a "compound lift" for 100 reps you're not gonna build strength or power, yet you're still doing a "compound lift."

    Tonight was chins night so I was thinking about how I could mimic that med ball slam without forking out fifty quid on a med ball. Found an old car tyre in the garage, picked it up by the rim, and started whacking the ground with it. worked a charm. Better grip work too.
