Sean definitely has one of the toughest, if not the toughest, training programs in the ufc but one thing that has always bothered me about it is that it doesnt look like it includes much grappling or sparring. almost like there is an overemphasis on cardio and strength and not very much cross-training. i hope he at least brings in some good sparring and rolling partners from different camps. just my opinion... but it seems to be working out great for him.



that is jut his cardio n strenght trainin, he has other sesions in the day where he works on mma, watch the total access on him and ull see all of it. and yea without a doubt one of the hardest working athlete



well ive seen the all-access and i know he trains his mma, but i just think his training is a little lop-sided. it didnt seem, judging from all-access, like he had any other top-10 or world-class fighters in his gym and it looks like he doesnt do any cross-training but instead throws everything together in his "grappling session." its just hard to tell how good his fight preparation is because all u hear about is his conditioning.

My problem with Sherk is his training...

He doesn't train to finish fights (maybe a talk with Kenny Florian is in order? ). He trains for 5 round fights. He trains to last. He doesn't train to have an explosive left hook or overhand right, or a massive head kick. He doesn't train to have an explosive striking routine that will KTFO a fighter. He trains to last and I dont like that. The all-access show was amazing for sure, the guy is an animal don't get me wrong and his training routine is extreme! I think he should focus more on exploding into someones dome instead of Tim Sylvia'ing fights.

Sean Sherk has the best stamina of any MMA fighter I've seen.




Roids will tend to do that.....lets see his stamina in the BJ fight



goog call.. but still.. he's gonna good with the stamina.. roids are like make up ... but for a man..

it can help you.. but it can't make you what you are

I understand that people on this site like to complain that Sherk doesn't finish fights, but you have to look at the big picture. So, his last 3 fights went to decision...does that make him unable to finish fights? He has 12 subs and 8 TKO's under his belt. Why didn't he finish his last 3 opponents? Probably because Franca, Florian, and Diaz are some of the toughest SOB's to finish in MMA. The 3 have a total of 58 fights amongst them...each of them have only been stopped once apiece, if you exclude Diaz's loss due to a cut. Just something to keep in mind.

that is jut his cardio n strenght trainin, he has other sesions in the day where he works on mma, watch the total access on him and ull see all of it. and yea without a doubt one of the hardest working athlete

Exactly, and let us not forget that Sylvia has finished 18 of his 24 wins by (T)KO or Submission. (16 of those are the (T)KO) That means literally 75% of his fights have finished.

Compare that to Chuck Liddell, one of the supposed greatest KO artists in history who has only finished 66% of his wins by (T)KO or submission.

Haters will be haters.

EDIT: BTW, I gotta spread the love.. sorry :(
