Now that you're totally confuse, eh?
No, that makes sense. I think I'm doing that, but I don't pay much attention to my feet during the Bas Rutten workout. I'm too busy trying to breathe!!!

I like that idea. I'll do that next time.

Did that make any sense because I really cant explain things.
OK, I gotcha. Thanks, man!

There are very few rules, but no striking the other guy. You can strike the ball to try and knock it loose. We did 5 minute rounds and the guys who lost it the most had to do 50 pushups during the 1 minute rest. Then switch so the other guy has the ball. Did this game back and forth and was completely exhausted at the end.

Thanks to me, one rule was added. You can't do a belly to back suplex to get the ball away. My bad.
That sounds brutal, man. How many times were you forced to do the 50 push-ups?

O, & suplexes should totally be allowed!

Just thought I'd input what we do to warm up before starting.

We do 3 three minute rounds shadowboxing but in between each round, we do 10 pushups 10 kicks, then 9 pushups then 9 kicks, all the way down to 1. Then another round of shadowboxing begins and its rince and repeat 3 times. Btw ben I know what you mean about the breathing, I just let out a sound, like you hear on the tennis when they hit the ball haha.. Helps alot.

Wait, is that the warm-up?

I don't make any purposeful noises or sounds, I just try to make sure to exhale with each strike & then get back to as regular a breathing pattern as possible between combos. Would you suggest changing that at all?

that looks similar to what we do in boxing conditioning without the kicks.
Love it!!
Something about making it through a brutal workout that si such a cleansing feeling.

Only do it if your breathing isn't to your satisfactory buddy. I cant wait for tonight! no classes on so me and my buddy (also MMA practitioner) are just going down to the local gym to sparr a little haha. We get some really strange looks when there.
The warm up is really good, but it is nothing compared to what we do on fighters night (not actual fight night, just when the competitors show up to train and improve).

Wow, that's cool man. My buddy who was holding the bag for me also did some of the workout. I checked with him & he's cool with me posting these. Lemme know what y'all think so I can pass the tips along.

Ben, you're buddy has got some good power! I would tell him that for these types of technique driven routines, to focus more on speed and fluidity and backoff a bit on the power (unless the routine specifically states to throw 100%, which it may). The main thing is that if you're accurate and your form is right the power with be there with less effort.

Yeah, Alex is about 5'8" & weighs 180. He's been working out since high school & is a physical therapy/exercise science major.

The Bas does call for 100% power in every combo, but I think I'll tell Alex to back if off a bit & work more technique. Now, if you wanna see no technique but an @$$ load of power, here's Khurram:
