  6. This is a great exercise and has made me want to share a personal story.
    I used to be a serious kickboxer focused in muay thai when i was 14-21 alongside studying etc i had multiple fights and only lost one by decision. I was in unbelievable shape, but i developed a strange tendonitis that affected my forearms, wrist, elbows, one shoulder, knees and shins. I was largely out of action for at least 3 years (even with regards to normal daily activities) and then one more year on and off as i learned about my injuries and recovered.
    I'm 24 now and just tried this out. I only managed to reach level 2 when in the past i'd definitely go on for much longer. This is a fantastic exercise and a good one to clock progression. I'll be doing this every day, time to climb the ladder 🙂

  7. Hey Jeff, great workout! I am a fan of MMA and couldn't resist trying this out. I have done an entire MMA program called Georges St. Pierre RUSHFIT. Could you give your opinion on that? ( i would love to hear from a fitness expert) Keep up the amazing work at Team Athlean! 🙂

  8. Question jeff. I have a dislocated right shoulder. As a PT, will I be able to compensate that torn ligament if I build more muscle on my shoulders. Cause right now, I can't punch, swing a bat, throw a ball as hard as before. I can't even do freestyle swimming for long time.
