Product Description

Over the next 3 instructional DVDs, we are going to take an in-depth look into the task-specific aspects of Combatives fitness training.


First of all, we will look at the foundation to all fitness and at the key components that need to be addressed in order to create such a foundation. Then we will look into the exact specifics of the energy systems required for combat. The core of this instructional program will focus on the ATP anaerobic system, as this is the exact mirror image of explosive violence.


Part one of this program (this DVD) deals specifically with the development of explosive useable strength. This translates to the ability to employ instantaneous force via the use of your own bodyweight, at speed and to ballistically control the bodyweight of another, in one immediate motion.


The key elements to this kind of strength are multi-joint movements, employed over resistance at speed. The fast lifts such as cleans/snatches and high pulls lend themselves to this need. In addition to this we will use plyometric movements focusing around 3 basic gross motor actions of pushing, pulling and squatting.


This is then supported by training the 3 key areas conducive to combat - the neck, core and grip. Throughout part one of this program, we will employ the use of a variety of kit. Namely barbells and dumbells where possible using thick handles to enhance the grip at every opportunity, along with sandbags, medicine balls, weight vests and good old-fashioned body weight.
