I am obviously long since sold on the utility of clubbells for combat sports conditioning.
I am curious though (I know there are several folks here who know or train with Tony Cecchine so they might have an answer), I read an article where he criticized several means of training including kettlebells, olympic lifting and odd object lifting. It seemed by the tone of the article that he was clearly in the camp of traditional heavy lifting with barbells and dumbells.
I notice that he endorses clubbells. I certainly think clubbells fall into the catagory of odd objects.
Anybody know what caused this change of heart?
I ask only because his program seems interesting but I will not pay for anyone's material that seems to flit from concept to concept. Or more importantly if there is an underlying reason for the endorsement.
The other issue I am curious about is why he doesn't compete. He seems like a perfect candidate for competition in submission grappling or MMA. Anyone know?
I don't know the man and he seems have a good system but every martial artist has likely been fooled before. These are issues that have peaked my curiosity and made me a little skeptical but I am far more interested in answers than I am in being skeptical.
If anyone knows the answers I'd like to know. I am interested but am getting too old to hit everyone's seminars or buy anyone's stuff for the heck of it.
Thanks in advance.
