I’ve been admittedly MIA the last few weeks from the site and obviously haven’t posted much new content lately – mostly because I always take a few weeks off of working as much during the summer – but I’ve still been behind the scenes working on various projects and thought I’d give everyone an update of what’s been going on and what’s coming soon…
BioForce Nutrition Available Next Week!
First, I’m happy to let everyone know that I’ll have all five products in the initial BioForce Nutrition supplement line available for purchase starting next week. I’ve actually had all the products in stock and all my athletes and clients in the gym have been using them for the last few weeks, but it’s generally time consuming to build all the pages and hook everything up to the shopping cart and such online.
Fortunately, most of this work has been done now and I’ll be taking care of the final steps in the process over the weekend and early next week so everything should be ready to go and you’ll be able to start ordering the BioForce supplements by the end of next week. Of course I’m going to have some great introductory prices so make sure to stay tuned for all the ordering details coming soon.
Training Camp Updates
As you can tell from this week’s article on Tim Boetsch and Bibiano Fernandes, both of them are deep in their training camp and getting ready for their fights. Demetrious Johnson has been training with us a bit as well, but he lives more than an hour away so when he comes up here to train he’s mostly focused on MMA training with Matt.
I’m looking forward to all three fights and I think there’s definitely a good chance we’ll go 3-0, but of course this is fighting so anything can happen. All of them are facing tough opponents obviously and DJ is fighting for the world championship, but all three of their training camps have gone extremely well and they’ll be ready to go. I’ll be posting some more about their training camps in the upcoming couple of weeks as they get closer to fight time.
Ultimate MMA Conditioning 2.0 Project Begins
For the last two years I’ve been selling my book, Ultimate MMA Conditioning, with great success and have received a huge amount of positive feedback and reviews. While I’m generally happy with the content that’s in the book, there’s been some material that I’ve wanted to update for awhile now and some changes I wanted to make based on feedback from the readers.
The three things people have asked most often for are: A) the ability to instantly download or get access to the book and it’s content B) sample training programs and more about how to put the methods together and C) videos of the training methods described in the book. Well, I’m going to make everyone happy because I’ve just started on the next version of the book, except I’ll first be releasing it in the form of a video based course. I’ll have 12-15 hours of multimedia presentations, a range of downloadable content and of course training videos demonstrating how to perform all the methods perfectly. I’m also going to be updating a lot of the material and adding a couple of entirely new sections that weren’t in the first edition.
I’ve already begun working on the new project and plan to have it ready to go within the next 2-3 months or so, but don’t quote me on that. These things always take longer than I expect because I want to get it perfect before I put it out there and I’m going to put everything I possibly can into this one so it may take longer than I want. Either way, it’s going to be jam packed with new cutting-edge info so stay tuned for more info coming on the project in the next couple of months.
New Contributors to the Site – Core Training Myths & Realities
I’ll be providing a lot more information about this next week, but I’ve just added several new contributors to the site that will soon be helping me get out more high quality content. One of the new people I’m most excited about is a longtime friend of mine named John Gray. While you probably aren’t familiar with him by name, you’ve probably heard of Stuart McGill and John was one of McGill’s PhD students and spent a great deal of time running McGill’s research lab several years ago. I met John more than 10 years ago through Mel Siff and John helped run the Supertraining list for awhile after Mel’s passing.
With a lot of the current trends in core training being attributed to the work of McGill, I wanted to bring John on board to help clear up a lot of confusion I still think is out there when it comes to training the core and help set the record straight. Very few people out there have both the scientific knowledge and understanding of how the spine and the core really work as well as the practical experience that comes from training people in the real world. John is one of those rare people that can bridge the clinical research-real world gap and I’m very excited that he’s agreed to start contributing to the site and being a part of the 8WeeksOut team. You can expect to see some content from John coming soon!
I’ll have more details about the other contributors I’ve added to the team next week but you can be sure they are as committed as I am to putting out great quality content and helping this site grow into the premier source for strength and conditioning information out there.
