Half a deck of bikes

I have been tearing cards off and on for a while and started back up when Jedd released his new E-Book that got me motivated to start tearing again. Today I found a pack in the garage and thought I would see what would happen with a half a deck of Bicycle cards. I will get the whole deck within 2 months.

Card Tearing E-Book

value="http://www.youtube.com/v/PwTOKn5SwJI&hl=en&fs=1">name="allowFullScreen" value="true">
Jedd Johnson from the Diesel Crew just came out with a great new manual on card tearing. In this video you see Adam Glass ripping cards like there normal pieces of paper. I have no doubt in my mind that you and I will be able to do this feat of strength within no time after you read this manual. It is a step by step method of teaching you how to achieve stronger wrists, forearms and grip strength. If you are serious about strength you should get this book. Card Tearing E-Book

Punching Speed, Power And Accuracy

Marty Mitchell has a great blog up and running and has recently posted this Q/A about fighting. Great read check out a piece of it

"Punching Speed, Power And Accuracy
The following Q&A describes the science of a punch. It is written by a friend of mine, Tom Myslinski, an NFL Strength Coach, predominantly for Football Linemen, to develop hand punching. However, I believe certain aspects of Tom's philosophy is applicable toward fighters, and other sport participants that could benefit from hand speed, strength and accuracy.

Tunch Punch Ladder

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the incline press a lift better suited to developing the punch technique?

NO! The Tunch Punch or open palm strike is utilized for its benefits of short range striking (Wing Chun style). It does not involve shoulder rotation so it is a non-twisting, heel of the hand, horizontal punch. This provides fast, straight, strides and blocks, developed with blunt power. Since it has less distance to travel, the intent of the punch is not telegraphed. Plus, a minimal amount of lower body movement is required for delivery, so balance maintenance and stability will not be disturbed. Bruce Lee has described this straight punch as “the backbone of Jeet Kune Do (JKD).”

Accelerated Muscular Development

The LATEST in training programs are coming. I only recommend books that you should buy after I have read them but....When this one hits the streets I think you should!! Here is why...

I was asked by Jim "Smitty" Smith from the Diesel Crew to be a tester in his 16 week pilot training program. I am almost a month into it and let me tell you, it is unlike anything I have done. I have followed the Bodybuilding programs out of the magazines and several other programs out there with some results, but no program I have done has given me the results I have seen in my muscle definition and more importantly on my strength gains. If you want to gain MUSCLE and STRENGTH you need to follow this incredible 16 week program. It also lays out a format for you to make your OWN program when your done. Tell me what program does that for you. Check it out and sign up for the news letter at Accelerated Muscular Development.
