Hi all, I'm new here. Anyone here ever use or know Matt Furey's stretching method? If so, did it work well for you?

Thanks!

And you have evidence to prove this? I hope you have a good lawyer... this sounds like libel to me.

Matt Furey's credentials are very much suspect IMO as well. Whether his system works is a different question that I do not know the answer to.

Believe me, Furey's conditioning stuff is solid, I don't know about his stretching but his conditioning is awsome!
here is a link to the royal court from "Combat Conditioning" which is an awsome bodyweight workout!

www.bodybuilding.com/fun/mahler19.htm

the handstand push ups are not part of the Royal Court but are great if you want a challenge.

I also do the magnificent seven which are featured in "Combat Abs"

Re-phrase: Matt Furey's "System" is not his system, but rather a bunch of different body weight conditioning methods that he stole from other athletes as well as compiled a bunch of gymnastics conditioning, then he puts his name on it and charges $500+ for it. He's not a martial artist, he's a scam artist. I can go to wrestling practice and do the exercises that he claims he invented, but if you want to pay half a grand just to learn stuff you can learn at your local gymnastics club for a quarter that price, then go right ahead. No one's stopping you.

Hmmm... it's getting from bad to worse. Now you're accusing him of "stealing"....

Have you actually purchased and evaluated his material or are you simply passing on "hearsay"?

Dude, I've read alot of his stuff including his "combat conditioning." He didn't invent that stuff, or dig up any "ancient conditioning secrets." Those are alot of conditioning exercises used to train gymnasts, wrestlers, and the military. Believe me, they didn't get it from Matt Furey.

Mr. mma if you actually took time to read the books you'd realise that Matt Furey is not claiming to have inveted any of this, he states it as a compilation of different exercises that he has used. Some of these he learned from Karl Gotch.

I am not here to profess that Matt Furey is the be all and end all, however from the exercises I have used, I must say they work.

Ah...yet another post dedicated to the ever controversial Matt Furey...Since Combat Conditioning is the mainstay of my conditioning routine I'll throw in my 2 cents...

Are Mr. Fureys credentials suspect?...
I don't know and I don't care because Combat Conditioning has done wonders for me.

Is Mr. Furey an evil self promoting capitalist pig snake oil salesman?..
Once again...I don't know and I don't care because Combat Conditioning has done wonders for me.

Was spending $30 just to learn 3 exercises that I basically already knew worth it?.. Yep...because...you guessed it...Combat Conditioning has done wonders for me.

Humanity is full of all kinds of presidents, preachers, teachers, leaders, etc., that were morally bankrupt in some form or another yet they still did very good things for society. Consequently, because I like the product of Combat Conditoning I will continue to use it and recommend it to other people.

As far as Mr. Fureys character...I just don't care. Combat Conditioning has done wonders for me.

Peace
