Eric, Wow, great post! But I think this pertains to all, not just mma fighters. Thanks for the great new ideas, can’t wait to try this out.

Hi Eric

Well I’m not too sure about Grimsby being the land of the peaches when Winona has the Peach Festival lol.

Regarding the stability ball exercises for the neck, I’ve checked your Ultimate MMA S&C Manual multiple times and couldn’t find it in there. There was nothing regarding training the neck in the master manual, the exercise library or the training guide. There were some stability ball exercises but nothing for the neck.

I’d love to know where and how I could fit them into your program.
