Sick Of Leaving The Gym Sore & Tired Ruining Your Training On The Mats?

Level Up Your BJJ/Grappling With Your Expert Strength Training System

Hear From A Pan Am Gold Medalist...

Melanie Iverson

The 8 Week Program was perfect for me to build jiujitsu strength and supplement my training for No-Gi Pans where I brought home gold! I felt like the movements translated well to those in the sport and kept the hard training for sparring. Will be recommending to my teammates and very excited to start the Farm Boy Strong Program.

Some Strength Training Programs Aren't Meant For Grapplers

So you see many of the "new school" grapplers/BJJ practitioners on Instagram hitting the gym...

...So you decide it's time to start strength training to gain an edge over your competition.

However, you soon find yourself excessively sore...

...Tired.

Even fatigued as you get on the mats to drill and roll each day.

So you change gym routines.

No difference.

You are still sore, tired, and fatigued getting on the mats to train.

And you have no progress to show for it.

You don't feel stronger during stand-up.

Your squeeze still isn't tapping your opponent out.

So you decide to stop going to the gym altogether.

But what if there was a strength training program specifically designed to improve your grappling/BJJ performance without leaving you a tired mess for the mats?

What Makes This Program Unique?

Developed By An International Level Strength & Conditioning Coach

I have been worked in three different countries at the professional and International level of elite sport. Through years of experience, I have developed an effective way to balance strength training and BJJ/Grappling to maximize transfer to the mats. I also compete in BJJ.

Built For The BJJ/Grappling Practitioner

As a BJJ practitioner myself, I know the struggle to balance strength training with training on the mats. Do too much in the gym, and you suffer on the mats. Not to mention that feeling of tightness and fatigue can increase your risk of injury. Hence why this program has found the optimal balance of strength training while addressing commonly injured areas.

Scientifically Proven Strategies To Get Stronger And More Powerful While Minimizing Fatigue

I'm a science nerd. You may have gathered that from the articles I've written on Sweet Science Of Fighting. The set and rep strategies used in this program are scientifically proven to reduce fatigue while getting you stronger and more powerful.

James de Lacey is, without question, one of the very best strength & conditioning coaches I've come across. His depth of knowledge in strength & conditioning, especially as it applies to combat sports, is exceptional, second-to-none. He conveys his comprehensive knowledge with carefully thought out programs that are sensible and efficient in a clear and concise writing style. He's able to break down complex topics and make them easily understandable for the layman. This is one sign that someone knows what they're talking about and James definitely knows what he is talking about in spades. With that said, I strongly endorse all of James' material to anyone interested in an effective and efficient approach to strength & conditioning for combat sports.
