Our very own Gus Rodriquez and his Strength and Conditioning program have helped both Francis Tiapis, Posener’s Pankration/MMA and Kirk Tse, Lions MMA, win their MMA Title matches on March 10 ’17.
Francis Tiapis won the AMA Fly-weight Title and Kirk Tse won the light-weight title.
Kirk says: “Gus @ The Art of Strength is my go to strength and conditioning guy for getting strong before my fights. Love his training! Thanks again man. This was a huge help. – Kirk Tse, AMA Lightweight Champion, March 10, 2017”
Francis also makes a strong endorsement: “Huge shout-out to my Strength & Conditioning Coach Gus Rodriguez. As his strength & conditioning program has been an Integral part of my training regiment in the preparation for achieving this 2nd title victory. Thank you for breaking my body down, only to bring it back up stronger then it was before. Osu!”
I am very proud of Gus’s strength and conditioning program and the benefits it provides the competitive athlete and the recreational client get in great shape for a variety of reasons.
We are going to have a special program starting soon.
Here is some information on our Strength and Conditioning program for MMA Vancouver at Posener’s Pankration/MMA.
Our classes are for competitive and recreational Men and Women.
Welcome to Vancouver’s new Strength & Conditioning classes for MMA and Fitness at Posener’s Pankration/MMA and Muay Thai. First and foremost, strength and conditioning is coming to the forefront of MMA and Kickboxing training. Fighters and trainers alike are realizing that to bring an athlete to their highest level, they need to train (in an educated fashion) with resistance, or, weights. Specifically, by engaging the Central Nervous System (“CNS”) through the big lifts such as the Deadlift and the squat, you can achieve much greater overall muscle recruitment at will.
This ability is favourable in combat situations because greater muscle recruitment translates to greater force and power exerted, over a longer period of time and with less perceived effort. The focus is to train anaerobically and/or metabolically, where anaerobic means “without oxygen,” and metabolic training means “completing structural and compound exercises with little rest in between exercises in an effort to maximize calorie burn and increase metabolic rate during and after the workout.” Choosing these training principles for MMA leads to optimal muscular endurance as well as a stronger central nervous system, so that the greatest force available to the fighter can be utilized, without gassing them before the fight has gone the distance. In later classes, we will be utilizing a specialized computer software to track fighters statistics.
These stats are including but not limited to: VO2 Max, Heart Rate Max, 1 Rep Max (for multiple lifts), Resting and Working Heart Rate, Progressive Overload progress and injuries (if any). We will also monitor basic strengths and weaknesses so we know what to work on and how to improve each fighter and student individually. With this information, there will be more opportunity for advancement, especially if the individual opts for one on one, personal training.
We will be putting tools to use such as: Kettlebells, Barbells, Dumbells, Plyometric boxes, Resistance bands, Heavy bags, Thai pads, and sometimes simply our own bodyweight, to achieve this goal. Our program is for the athlete, competitor and fitness enthusiasts alike. It is for men and women looking for a fast and efficient path to fat loss, better body composition and physique toning/sculpting, improved energy and metabolism and confidence.
We offer tailor made programs for your individual goals, no matter what it is your trying to accomplish. Using your baseline measurements and your objectives, your personal program will allow that progress. Included is a 30-day progress report that show your progress from your baseline taken, to the time your report is generated. Our Strength and Conditioning Vancouver program can help you reach your goals. Fitness Vancouver, Personal Training Vancouver, Strength and Conditioning for MMA Vancouver, it’s time to get started.
