Unique Marv Marinovich training
 
Has anyone been following this? I saw BJ Penn's video blog when he first introduced Marv, began reading up on his gyms, stopped gaining interest when one of his trainers said the 1RM bench press was an aerobic exercise & olympic weightlifting was slow. Put unique training non the less.

The super cat enhances explosiveness wfs

Accelerator leg work for eccentric/concentric exercises. wfs

I was listening to GSP's trainer Jon Chaimberg in another podcast say something like this style is good for field sports where balance is needed for large athletes but unnecessary for someone like BJ who already has outstanding balance & needs to focus more on conditioning. My thoughts are NM system responses of hundreds of repeated complicated motions of half squats are good, but why not do one solid heavy snatch in a legit squat? Or at least a weighted pistol.

Any interesting thoughts or commentary?

Since the ring or cage isn't moving, I don't see any reason for doing that on a swiss ball.

These S&C coaches or whatever you would call them are just making up stupid crap to make it seem as if they can improve athletic ability. They think that if they can call BS on legitimate exercises (squats, deads, Olympic lifts), then make something "new" and "innovative" up, slap on the name of one already really good athlete to the "exercise" it is legitimate and others will do it. Chances are because people think it is working there will be a placebo effect and some improvement will occur, as everyone has some untapped potential.

That is my 2 cents.

I watched those two videos and thought - why not just do jumps instead?

I will hold my breath waiting for the massive surge of champion athletes produced through this model. (sucks in large breath...)

Derek Weaver 07-25-2009 03:34 PM

I'm trying to think of a world where those would be good positions to put an athlete in....

They have him do this with weights
"BJ doing some abs"
