GreenStrength Fighters

This friday night in Tulsa Ok I have 4 fighters going to battle on the Legacy FC Card! Many people who train combat sports have asked about what I do, or they think from years ago I may be doing similar things as before. WRONG! I am building HEALTHY – STRONGER – FIGHTERS. All four of my guys recently posted or sent me a message via text. I posted them all below as I feel this shows firsthand what we are accomplishing together. These guys are moving, feeling, recovering flat out better than before and they all stand behind the fact they feel it has made their FIGHT TRAINING BETTER. That’s the purpose here. Derrick is the newest addition to the team but he is such a hard working, humble stud who has fit right in and just been a DO’er! Looking over notes on Rafael we saw where over the past 3+ years we have added 12lbs of Lean Body Mass to his frame while keeping weight around the same. Yes, ponder that and add the fact his injuries and small set backs from training have drastically gone down. He moves, sleeps, feels BETTER!

I can’t thank these gentleman enough for being the foundation and the true start to the #GreenStrength revolution.

Derrick Adkins recently had this to say on a FB Post

“Yesterday I was tired and kind of sluggish. Then I got up and got to my strength and conditioning workout, Luke put me through simple fight week movements and I left feeling good and went straight to kickboxing and killed that workout feeling a lot better because of the first workout, instead of feeling worse because I killed a hard lifting workout. That has been the story of this fight camp, #Greenstrength workouts have enhanced my sport specific workouts for sure!”

Rafael Lovato Jr. recently put this tweet out

“My #strengthandconditioning coach, Luke Tirey, killing a 106lb #KB #turkishgetup this morning! He has totally changed my body composition, kept me healthy, made my stronger, & got me in the best shape of my life over the last few years. I am so thankful to have him a part of my #fightcamp. Give him a follow at @greenstrengthiv. #greenstrength #teamlovato #intelligenttraining #bestofbothworlds”

” Hey man I just wanted to shoot you a message and tell you thank you so much for everything! Everything you have had me do has really paid off. I feel amazing! I can feel it in my practices, I am stronger, faster, and just feel incredible! Thanks so much again, I hope to represent well at Legacy FC!

“It’s fight week and I feel amazing. 12 + weeks will drive you crazy. For the first time in my pro career, I don’t have the stress of a large weight cut.”

Weak Patterns | Perfect Practice Is Needed…

Here is a great post on www.strengthsenei.com – Click to read entire article

I wanted to post a few lines from this article as I feel it answers a ton of questions. I know for fact many of my guys are going to really understand why I always talk about being mindful during training, and the major differences between what I/We/#Greenstrength and others. Again, we do the same exercises, same correctives, same food choices as everyone else blah blah – the difference is we mindfully encourage our you to search for the ‘perfect practice’ as mentioned below. So enjoy and let these lines sink in and you’ll understand one of the many #Greenstrength differences from the rest of the modern fitness world.

“Just for a second, let’s say your athlete presents with postural imbalances. His right shoulder is low, his pelvis is rotated and his left knee buckles in.

Considering that an individual’s postural response is involuntary, in that context, performing corrective exercises means compensation will be a component of every repetition.

Performing a corrective exercise incorrectly does not make much sense. As they say, practice does not make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect.

Proprioception is derived from the muscle’s capacity to inform the nervous system where a limb is at all times. When muscles are shortened and some are lengthened as a result of these postural imbalances, the sensitivity of the muscle receptors decreases. This results in a loss of feedback for where the limbs are positioned. This is what a reduction in proprioception comes down to.

Less proprioception = less sensation = less performance! It’s very difficult to control and move what you don’t feel.”

Be Mindful in your practice and movement!
