We do have to respect the modern training. Your thought?

Now I just read ‘Siberia’ and ‘modern training’. But as we remember Mr.Balboa was all TAB(traditional American boxing) and Drago was MRB(modern Russian Boxing)......that’s what came to my mind ....+.....In the 80’s I took a hike on the trans-siberian train. During the brief stops the train did I went outside to practice some Karate katas(forms), at one of those stops two guys on the other side of the track caught my attention by doing thumbs down and began shadow boxing as of showing the real deal stuff. The train was about to leave so I made thumbs up and waved goodbye to the boxers 8-)

Low-budget CrossFit with an obnoxious soundtrack.

But functional strength training is good GPP foundational conditioning for MMA. I didn't see a lot of specific fight-skill training in the clip though.

It's not really modern other than using a rubber car tyre or a timer but not that modern.

It is good to sweat and train the body physically. It's bad to do it in a way that Tom mentions "cross fit" style ie timed intervals, higher reps, more weight and the belief that linear growth is humanly possible.

Doing the same exercises controlled, with a spot if heavy or using guides and within tolerances is the way to go.

Otherwise we end up with

Saw an documentary years ago about Alexander Karelin. It was his birthday and one of his wrestling mates called him to come outside to share a bottle of vodka and a cake, so there they stood outside in the snowy, icy, freezing cold eating cake and drinking vodka, then it was off to the gym.

And a while ago I saw a video clip where a DaiXinYiquan teacher invited to teach some Russians. In between the working on the squatting practice the Russian students refreshed themselves and the teacher with glasses of vodka.

I’ll guess vodka belongs to the traditional part of the practice 8-)
