Here follows a link to an article by a guy who is on the same page as me in regards to fight conditioning and dynamic strength training.
Anyone who really thinks that 1000 push ups and sit ups a day make you literally 'fighting fit', read on and think again.
All credit to T-nation for the link, copy and paste and get inspired people.

This is the kind of functional training I am trying to preach at my gym that I train at. The old school guys don't want to hear it but when they see my tone and definition not to mention my edurance it speaks for it self.

When people ask me how do I work out, my answer is I train for body effiency so my body can withstand high stress levels weather its my grappling or my kickboxing/karate and boxing. Functional training is the way to go and this article is great for opening eyes to this form of training.

If you think it is good information then it is good enough for me. I will certainly give it a good read later and give you my thoughts.

I enjoyed the article Cord, I wouldn't agree with everything, but there was a lot of very good info in there. I particularly liked the advice on sprinting and the sled stuff. However, I'm sure that HIT is just as effective as calisthenics in circuits for high intesity endurance. It certainly seems like a great way of doing things if you like the great outdoors, however I certainly don't have enough space for a nice big tyre in my back garden. Still I see where the chaps coming from: the irregular shapes require a far more "total body" apoproach to lifting.

Especially form the stabilizer muscles. Those objects are awkward and unbalanced. I was a granite worker for a few works and had to move some crazy big pieces and it was tough. Very hard.

If you were to find a gym in a city that trains like this, what exactly would you type in in google? Core builing?

A search for 'Core gym' would probably lead to the website in my link, as that is what the gym is called. For gyms in your area, you should look for 'functional strength training' or any gym that supports or offers 'crossfit' training. They are still few and far between sadly. Far more people doing this sort of stuff in garages and on parkland, than in gym facilites.

I found a gym called Gym Jones. www.gymjones.com

Its actually the gym that trained the men in 300 the movie.

Look at the website and their philosophy, its amazing. But, you can only join if your invited, or if they accept you and your goals.

I like the sledgehammer thing, I can see how that can get tough real fast. And I agree, jogging accomplishes very little, unles you have some great need to run away. I'm more concerned with quick bursts of speed to close the gap faster. Now I SO wish I had a huge tire to train with. ANy suggestions on alternatives?
