Here’s a summary of the benefits of this conditioning template:

  • Aerobic conditioning
  • Alactic capacity
  • Lactic endurance
  • Neuromuscular adaptability (your ability to quickly change between different movement patterns)
  • Agility
  • Your ability to quickly go from standing to lying down and vice versa (think scrambles, takedowns, etc)
  • Includes 4 of the 6 fundamental movement patterns

This workout is fun and challenging and will get you in top fight shape.


Again, this is another style of training that I’ve only seen my athletes perform, because it’s very specific and I’ve been refining it since 2006 when I first started using it with my man Jeff Joslin for a title fight at a Canadian MMA promotion and his UFC debut.

Make sure you watch this video (and the past 2) to the end to soak up everything I’m sharing with you, because if you do get what I’m teaching, you literally will possess more knowledge about conditioning than most personal trainers out there.

And that makes you one smart cookie.

After you finish, leave me some feedback in the Comments or simply tap the ‘Like’ button (and a Share would be siiiiick – let’s spread the good word). 

That’s all I ask.

Well, that, and be cool.

Hello Eric! First I want to thank you for this and your previous videos that I am enjoying, I am learning a lot! I bought the HFS product that is helping me a lot and I am very interested in your upcoming new product. I am a jiu-jitsu amateur athlete and I will try to schedule your workout to try to improve my explowive power and general fitness. One question about the workout, my daughter is a 15 year old judoka who regularly participate in competitions. She trains three days a week in the dojo. When this workout could be used in the month before a competition, how many times a week considering she has the normal training and when she should stop before the competition. Thank you very much for your reply and keep your fantastic work! Franco

Buongiorno Franco! Thanks for your good words. If your daughter is 15, ensure that her movement technique is spot on before introducing high impact exercises like repeated jumps – females, especially young ones, tend to have poor Lunge and Squat movement patterns – you’ll see this as their knees cave in. If she doesn’t have that, then feel free to use this workout 2 days/week, going no higher than 4 rounds with 2 minutes of rest between, so she doesn’t get fatigued and sloppy.

Especially with kids, form is #1.

Can I run all three training programs a week? My goal is to get into top shape and focus more on bodyweight. Leaving the weights down for a while. Would you recommend that?

7 months 8 hours ago

Not so much, I recommend training in phases, not messing around too much, but what you could do if you’re dropping the weights is to do 2-3 workouts of 1 style (i.e. A+L) and 1 workout of the other style (NRG) then use that as your template for some variety while still allowing your body to FOCUS and optimally adapt.

Hello Eric! Many many thanks for your reply. So I eill observe my daughter’s knees during Lunge and squats, she is used to do squats and I remember she is doing fine. We’ll try to add your workout teice a week in the days she is not in the dojo, in our mini-dojo at home. Thank you for your valuable help and thanks for keeping us informed about your great news!

Hi… I understand and like the explanation at the end of the video but I can’t help noticing that it doesn’t quite sync with the actual video. You write on your notebook the order: cardio, upper and then lower for the first three exercises, yet the order on the video is Mtn climbers, lateral jumps and kick thru push ups… which I make cardio, lower, upper. This also happens later on. I guess it’s just a hiccup or have I totally misunderstood the explanation. Please advise. Thanks

Yep, that’s true what you pointed out.

Now, tell me, do the workout and template I present after still provide the benefits of and follow the principles I teach?

Definitely want to try this for my next fight. I want to use the slower progression first to see how my body reacts. How much time between using the slower progression should I leave before using the four week to fight progression? Does three weeks between the two sound like the right schedule, or is it to much/ not enough? Thank you.

If you can, do 6 weeks and slot in The BURN and POWER PAIRS for 3 weeks each then do the fight skeddie.

I’ve loved getting to see the new workouts you’ve been sharing. And I’m stoked to get this new product and use it with the clients I’ll be working with as a personal trainer. I want to break the conventional idea of a trainer just counting reps and sets, I want to give people something that can make an actual difference.

7 months 3 days ago

YES! I’m pumped to hear about the results you get with your clients!

You’re such a baddass! Thanks for sharing the knowledge and simplifying science! Can’t wait for your new product.
