Ya know, I must be doing something wrong...I've been reading these posts on Matt Furey for the past couple of days...and I still ain't anymore flexible(?!?!?). Maybe if we complain more about Matt Furey my flexibility will finally increase.

But that's okay...all press is good press and I'm sure Mr. Furey is laughing all the way to the bank.

By the way, "Has anybody used Combat Stretching?..somebody...anybody?

To put an end to this... That letter has nothing to do with Matt Furey's stretching program, it is merely complaining about his skills and instruction in wrestling.

It has no bearing on the current discussion, so cut it out. Everybody.

Also, if you have nothing to comment on Matt Furey's stretching program, then make no comment or start a new thread.

Havn't bought into the combat stretching (129 is a bit much for me too) But even if Matt Furey is a lowlife scumbag, I still bought Combat Conditioning and Combat Abs. (incredibly smart taking out of print material and making it available again) These two books are great, and the exercises really do work.

Since i don't know about the stretching book, i did buy another book. Stretching Scientifically by Thomas Kurtz

http://www.stadion.com

He even has a free newsletter talking about the contents of his book and other studies. Well worth the $25 bucks.

MMA: So while you are at it why don't you start bashing this guy's creditability too? Can't leave him out!

Those who speak, do not know; those who know, speak when asked!

BTW: I think this Bullshido.com website is just a bunch of people that suddenly relized that the WWE or WWF really is fake, and are trying to use the UFC to hide their anguish. hehehehehehe


This guy is a trainer and i think he has a PHD is sports medicine.

Thanks for the info. At this point I think I'll bypass Combat Stretching but since you mentioned it, I've heard nothing but good about Combat Abs so I think I'll take a chance and pick up a copy of that.

Peace

Well, this probably be my first and last post here unless asked more especifics on Matt Furey. Seven months ago I sent for his Carpal tunnel exercises and they worked. within a month, I sent for his Stretching exercises and they did work. So far I also ordered the Combat Abs and Combat Conditionnining Books and videos and all of them have worked for me. Thirty pounds later and no back pain, hand/wrist pain(due to carpal tunnel syndrome), or knee pain. And more flexible than when I was 18. BTW, I am 43yo with a long history of back pain and knee pain thanks to the Army. As for credentials and such. I really do not care since those exercises have changed my physique for the best and also my health.

That is great news! Your comment about the army caught my attention. I am curious, how did the army mess up your back? I served in the Army, and must say I was in pretty good shape while I was in. And, I have Matt Furey's combat conditioning and it was funny that a lot of the stuff in there we used to do for PT. I am curious what is so different between Matt Furey and regular PT in the army?

Respectfully,

- Jason

Yep!! As I've already said Furey's methods cured an ACL tear in my knee. Was it worth 29 bucks?..Hmmm, 29 bucks to learn how to do hindu squats and cure an ACL tear vs. long hours of physical therapy, doctors visits, medical bills, etc. Ya know I just can't fault Mr. Furey for "stealing" the money from a naive fool like me. With any luck, I'll continue to be naive and gladly be giving him more money in the future.

So, can you explain the physiology behind this "cure" of an ACL tear? I was under the impression that the only thing that could cure a torn ligament was a surgeon's knife.

MikeMartial,

I stand corrected. I asked my wife about my alledged ACL tear and she just laughed at me and explained that an ACL tear is severe and curable only with surgery (my wife is a physical therapist). She stated that most likely I had something lesser such as an LCL or MCL tear. As far as hindu squats "curing" the ligament tear, most likely what happened was the surrounding ligaments got strengthened by the hindu squats thus compensating for the torn ligaments, rather than "healing" the torn ligaments. Either way, even though my understanding of physiology and anatomy may be off, after walking around several months with a bad knee that tended to pop out and get re-injured, whatever the hindu squats did for me they did it well.

Peace

PS-by the way...did I tell you how hindu squats cured my mental illness, made me a member of the mensa society, made me rich beyond my wildest dreams,gave me great musical skills...and even gave me the ability to buy the Golden Gate Bridge (I was told it should be arriving in the mail within 7-10 working days)?
