    We are so ahead of the curve

    I'm watching the Ultimate Fighter Finale and they are showing a fighter going through training and of course he's beching chains and dragging a sled. We are so cool they have to keep us underground.

    haha kinda sucked that he lost though

    Wilks was just too fast

    Oddly enough though, Lou has been working with some mma fighters for strength and conditioning.

    Crossfit can be pretty wicked but maybe Matt Hughes should try powerlifting.

    How does he modify westside for an mma fighter. I really like westside and i think its done a lot for me. So i want to keep following westside even though i will be starting mma classes in the fall.

    I saw something on tv a while back about Dwight Howard's (Orlando Magic) training; he was doing board presses and benching with chains. Cool to see from an NBA player.

    I think Matt Hughes may have powerlifted at one point. During one of the UFC shows they here talking about him before his find and they said he had a 400lb bench. I do not know if this is true or TV though

    I think you are right. That might have been back when he was winning fights.

    I have seen that UFC special several times when they followed Rich Franklin through his nasty workout. It is fun to see different disciplines train.

    Someone at your level would be best served to work on your technique rather than try and manage that sorta set up

    I thought Hughes on his forum stated that he hadn't gone heavy on bench in a long time and had never gone over 315.
