Olympic Wrestler Used Natural - Underground!

When I spoke to Buddy Lee about his physical preparation methods he said he was always training outdoors, using the elements.

He did this because he heard that this is how the Russians trained.

He did this in college, the military and during all his international and olympic wrestling preparation.

Of course, he knew who Coach Ethan Reeve was.

They both used to train at the Grandby School of Wrestling and this is where Coach Reeve picked up many of his "farm boy - Underground" methods.

Buddy told me he would train outdoors using stones, logs, sledge hammers, bodyweight movements, climbing rope and throwing odd objects (stones, tree stumps, etc.)

When you look at his accomplishments in the post below, you'll see exactly how powerful these methods can be!

If you want to learn the methods that have resulted in awesome success stories for countless others, then you need to spend a weekend in NJ!

Take advantage of the early bird savings!

Stay strong till' the next time!


PS - We've got an amazing weekend planned for you, when you go home, you're going to have so much powerful information your results will come faster than ever before.

Most weekends like this will cost you an arm and a leg, come with a buddy and you'll save even more.

See you at The Underground!

Back from CrossFit Cert!

Wow, what a bad ass weekend this was, spending two full days learning, training, meeting great people and training some more!

This was held at the Quantico Marine Corps base and the gymnasium was located right next to the air craft musuem.

When I pulled up the garage doors were open and I saw a few old fighter jets being revamped and man did they look beastly. As you probably know, I was unable to take photos, and in addition, I always forget to take pics so you can expect that from me!

I hung out with Jeff Martone a lot over the weekend as well, Jeff is CF's resident Kettlebell expert. He's a cool guy and has better stories than anyone I know!

Buddy Lee, the jump rope phenome was there as well, demonstrating and instructing on proper jump rope skills - in 2 minutes he had EVERYONE doing double unders No problem!

Most people don't know that Buddy was a bad dude - how bad??

How about several national titles and Greco Roman Olympian -

In fact, this man is probably unknown to most combative athletes, as far as his accomplishments, so in a second, I'll tell you about him, but read this...

Buddy was watching us go through olympic lifts, explosive movements, intense circuits and various jumps and he was LOVING everything he saw!

We were being taught the hip snap and how to generate power through the hips, so, Buddy saw that this was EXACTLY the same movement we use in wrestling to finish a takedown with a lift.

He demonstrated this on someone and the guy was airborn so fast he had no clue what just happened!

Look at Buddy's accomplishments:
