WARNING: The 1 Mistake Even PROS Make With Their Strength & Conditioning (And Why You Must Avoid Watching UFC Countdown)
It's a secret only known by those who work in the profession of preparing athletes and fighters for the big stage...
UFC Countdown, All Access, HBO's 24/7, we love getting a glimpse of how the pros train.
But, did you know the training shown by your favorite fighter isn't what they actually do?
Prowler and sled sprints...
Hardcore "fight specific" circuits...
It's all for your entertainment.
Unfortunately, coaches and combat athletes see this and assume this is how they prepared and become the phenomenal athlete they are today.
But this small snapshot is just that...
A peek at the one hour of training that week. Or a short circuit the camera crew put together for a Rocky-like training montage.
It sucks to see fighters be led astray from clips like these.
Social media is no better where you are constantly bombarded with fighters doing stupid things.
Which is why the SSOF Underground was born.
A closed community only for fighters who want to know what the pros are REALLY doing...
And YOU can take advantage of this incredible resource of coaches and researchers who are deep in the trenches of combat sports physical preparation.

No-Gi Pan Ams 2022 Gold Medalist
I won gold at No-Gi Pan Ams!
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.
I wasn't tired at all after 5 rounds
I felt great at open mat! Wasn’t tired at all after 5 rounds, made everyone else gas out and tapped them. I'm gonna be 42 next year and still keep up with the 20 year olds.
Kickboxer & MMA Coach
The course showed me how to put all the practices together
I put the Unleash Your Inner Beast Course into practice before my fight. I have been doing meditation and breathwork for a few years, also tried some visualization, but never in a consistent or ordered way. The course helped me with the frame and how to put all of the practices together, and how to actually apply them.

Author "Fight Night"
Depth of knowledge broken down for the layman
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.
BJJ Purple Belt & Trainer
Professionalism and vast experience to novice all the way to elite level
James is one of the most knowledgeable and passionate coaches I’ve ever had the opportunity of working with. His understanding and application of the many facets of Strength and Conditioning is beyond comparable. Not only does he bring professionalism and vast experience to novice all the way to elite level, he is also patient and clinical when it comes to coaching. If you get the chance to work with him it will be one of the best opportunities you ever experience.
Head Coach & Owner Trifecta Gym
James' course was by far the best
I've done 5-6 courses about conditioning. James' course was by far the best. It cleared my mind about conditioning and now I see the mistakes many are making that I won't make again!
The community is hosted within an app called Mighty Networks. You can access it on your phone anytime or you can use your web browser on your laptop. It's like a Facebook community but more organized without the distractions.
As a hobbyist, you may enjoy competing every so often. If that's the case, you can greatly benefit from the information and coaches inside this community. However, if you go to class a couple of times a week to stay fit, then keep your wallet in your pocket as you won't find much benefit being part of the community.
If you want to use the community to ask questions about your coaches program, then this isn't for you. If you have questions or issues with your training, you need to talk with your S&C coach. We don't know the what, when, why, and how of your programming and it's be disingenuous of us to try figure that out. However, if you have an S&C coach and you just want to learn more about physical preparation for combat sports, then we'd be happy to have you!
You will benefit greatly having expert coaches and researchers guiding your training protocols. While your number one focus is the combat sport you've chosen, getting your week structure and physical preparation right from the start will help propel your progress instead of leaving you lagging behind.
Kudos to already having a strong physical base! This community is about mastering the art of physical preparation for combat sports. If you feel you've got that down and don't need to learn anything more or new, then this community isn't for you. If you feel you need a push in the right direction with your training to best transfer to the ring, cage, or mats, then you're in the right place.
It definitely is. You'll have access to a wide range of professional coaches and researchers on the cutting edge of physical preparation. Further, many have years of experience training athletes like yourself. Get your training problems solved by asking a question within the community or on the live Q&A. If you need something tailored to you, then we can see if any coach has availability to take online clients.
We understand the importance of mental skills in the fight game. As part of your SSOF Underground community membership, you get free access to our Unleash Your Inner Beast Mental Skills Course by Mental Skills Coach and 6x Karate World Champ Mona de Lacey. Further, she will be in the community to answer any mental training questions you may have.
Unfortunately, we cannot give medical/rehab advice. For one, it's near impossible to diagnose what's wrong over the internet. And two, you need to see a specialist in person to ensure you're getting the right treatment. Further, there are legal implications to giving this kind of advice.
Simply go into your profile within the training app, click subscriptions, cancel subscription. Couldn't be easier!
We are a group of coaches and researchers dedicated to educating and teaching what are have learned and applied. So yes!
You will not be refunded the rest of the membership. However, you will remain in the community until your renewal date where your membership will be cancelled.

My Personal Note To You
There are many coaches forcing their way onto your phone screen that don't deserve the attention. I've assembled the very best within combat sports that don't have the same following as the "social media trainer." I'm excited for you to experience the level of knowledge and cutting edge methods you can apply to your training.
