Monster Conditioning – Heavy Bag

MCAttention: MMA Athletes, Boxers, Kick-Boxers or Other Martial Artists and Trainers

Imagine Your Opponent Becomes Gassed and His Strength Fades Away
While You’re Breathing as Easy
as When You Walk Down the Street

Famous Wrestler Karl Gotch said “Conditioning is Your Greatest Hold”

Dear Friend,

You may have all the technique in the world, but what happens when you’re so tired you can’t lift your arms up? What Gotch said applies to any martial sport. How many boxing matches have been decided because one person became tired and couldn’t properly attack or defend himself?

Many people don’t know this but I fought professionally a few times early in my career. 

I was Real Dangerous…for the First Two Minutes.

After that…well, I think you can imagine what happened. But that was long ago. Now I’m well-recognized the world over not just for my strength, but for my endurance as well. 

What if you wore them down and you felt like you were only warming up? It is possible and I want to show you how.

The Monster Conditioning series is all about building all-around strength and endurance. When it comes to fighting you need exactly those things. 

I’m tired of watching excellent fighters do well in the ring, but their strength and conditioning program is nothing more then a bodybuilding split routine thrown on top of doing sparring exercises and a couple bag drills. That’s a good idea…if you want to get beat down and hurt.

Strength & Conditioning that
Will Transfer Over to Your Fighting Directly

This DVD set is not about teaching you to be a fighter or boxer. If you’re looking for martial arts or boxing technique you’ll have to go some place else…

What this is about is showing you how to build phenomenal conditioning for your fighting, centered around using the heavy bag. It’s about using the heavy bag itself for conditioning. It’s about using the heavy bag with a variety of other training tools for much more.

Heaby Bag Guest Instructors



“Hey Bud- just got the Heavy Bag DVD set – great stuff. I hit the bag, I like it, but I suck at it. This is very helpful. I am 58 and train alone and some days even train hard. I use kettlebells, dumbbells, trap bar, etc and heavy bag. Improvement takes effort, but it is fun when you are rocking away and smacking that thing. Anyway, this is the kind of stuff I like, thanks very much.”
– Lou Vascek, Littleton, Colorado

All of this is delivered over the course of 3 roughly 50 minute DVD’s. 

This is hardcore training information. It was shot mostly in my backyard where I actually train, not in some Hollywood studio. The lighting is not perfect. And there’s dogs barking and trains rolling by. So if you’re looking for computer graphics you won’t find it here and you can go back to lifting pink dumbbells. But if you want to see real work being done and how you can become stronger, faster and better conditioned then this set will deliver.

Now I’ve got two offers for you. You can grab the Heavy Bag DVD set by itself, or you can get the digital version and save. The choice is yours.
