Christian to gain his MMA Strength and Conditioning Certification- this Friday!
This weekend I’ll have the honour of training with one of the world’s leading Strength and Conditioning coaches from the U.S.A.
JC Santana is the owner and director of IHP and has been acknowledged as one of the world’s leading authorities on training and performance. Men’s Journal voted JC as one of the top 100 Personal Trainers in the United States, and Men’s Health voted IHP as one of the top 20 facilities in the USA.
JC Santana has dedicated his years of research and practical knowledge of the fitness industry into creating world class training products and programs. Many of the tools I use at my classes, in particular the Kettlebell Fighter classes, have been developed by JC. It will be an honour to train under him and come back with lot’s of great ideas for our training in Hove!
Get ready guys…I’m going to come back AMPED from this course! 😉 Christian BRIGHTON KETTLEBELLS
Fighters trained by Brighton Kettlebells sweeped the board at the last ZT Fight Night- Night of the Champions at Hove Town Hall last Friday!
Amongst them was Ivam Maciel, a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner who’s signature triangle choke caught out his opponent Matt Plock. Ivam has been attending the Kettlebell Fighter classes and believe me he kills it during the long rounds of kettlebell and body weight exercises! Some circuits last up to 8 minutes!
The full-to capacity crowd saw a great spectacle of fighting, ending with a glorious win by ex-Strongman Oli Thompson, who defeated his opponent with a furious ground and pound. Well done also to Laura Howarth who must’ve looked so mean, her opponent did not want to fight her and pulled out! Nice job!
Awesome night guys…now lets get back in the gym and kill it!
Waking at 7am, my whole body was sore and tight in all the wrong places! Man this was gonna be hard! Hopefully you read the report from Day 1 (below), Day 2 also had some nice little surprises up its sleeve!
The format was similar, learn some moves and the theory behing them, then practice them in front of your group till you get it right! The cherry of the day was the four station circuit: Pull ups, then snatches, then ring muscle-ups, then a monster workout involving some med balls and push ups! (see pic below!) You had to do 7 med ball cleans (10kg), run to the far end of the hall, then do 7 press ups, run back to the ball and repeat over and over….for 10 minutes! Let me take this opportunity to thank all the professional Crossfit Cert team, who led with inspiration and true professionalism. Thanks also to Sol and Alex for sharing this wicked weekend with me…now let’s go kill some clients!
