I was intrigued by Phil Davis's S&C routine which looked quite different from the other 3 light-heavies at the top of the bill on the weekend. Not that it worked out very well, although I'm not sure how much his S&C, can be blamed. I remember when BJ Penn was doing a lot of balance board stuff etc rather than basic weight-training and for a while it seemed to go well. So, for anyone more knowledgeable than myself about S&C (which is a pretty big sample group), I had a couple of questions:
First, is there any top MMA fighter at the moment following a radically different S&C regime at the moment and experiencing any kind of success? Either a kinesiology-based approach like Davis or some other very different basis?
Secondly, to my uneducated eye, it seemed as if the methodology and philosophy (if that's the right word) of Johnson, Jones and Glover's S&C coaches were essentially very similar, and that 90% of top guys who can afford a S&C coach follow this type of routine, is there anyone more familiar with these fighters who would identify big differences in the way they approach S&C?
