In the PM article talking about training the fighter, Robb said for strength they did the ring dip, pullup, deadlift circuit and I know on here he said he does it with other clients as well. It is done after a warmup or sometimes even after everything else.

3-5 sets of each exercise, 2-3 reps per set, 1 minute rest between each exercise. For the fighter, Robb did the first 2 weeks with the ring dips and pullups with no weight but then added weight after that. I started with bodyweight on the deadlift and am ramping up the weight slowly as I'm trying to fix one of my deadlift issues (hyperextending rather than hip extension). He also changes the stuff around so one day maybe 5 sets of 2 and the next time 3 sets of 9. I've been doing just the ring dips and pullups for a few weeks and only recently added the deadlifts in.

Sidenote: I think you were suppose to be coming into DC area in July?

I am. I haven't booked my flight yet but I plan on flying in Sunday middle of the day. I have to be in Baltimore for a meeting Monday morning.

I will keep you posted as I book the flights.

I read that article and it went in through the eyes, rattled around then went elsewhere. I will open the article and re-read.

I went to website and was wondering if you can still get the e-version of Afterburn? It looks like you can only get the book now. Does anyone know?
