What can the Diesel Method do for you?

Athlete Profile: Mark Bailey

Before we got a hold of Mark Bailey, he was sucked out - down to 160 lbs and beat up from his 2003-2004 Scholastic wrestling season. We took a look at his nutrition, flexibility, strength and performance goals for the upcoming 2004-2005 season. We developed a strategy to help him achieve his goals and along the way, make him a machine.

Here is Mark in June of 2004.

We took Mark into our program and the Diesel Method changed his life. He used our unique program combining powerlifting, strongman, weightlifting, dinosaur training and grip strength exercises to create unreal power. He knew he would have to work hard but he also knew - with the Diesel Method - he would have the kind of season he always dreamed about.

Here is Mark in August of 2004.

After correcting his diet and introducing Mark to complex, multi-joint movements, his bodyweight went from 160 lbs to 189 lbs at the end of the summer. He was rock solid and in training, he was moving huge weights explosively. The carry over was very apparent during the first practice of the 2005 season, where he was taking his team mates and throwing them around like rag dolls. The Diesel Method was expanded even further during this training period with Mark. The Grappling Conditioning I and II DVD series was born. It shows coaches, trainers and athletes how to maintain the strength developed in the off season while they are practicing everyday. You will be able to take the bodyweight exercises in our DVD series and workout right in the mat room or on the field - before, during or after practice! Rugby players and firemen have also discovered the benefits of our Grappling Conditioning series.

Mark took 3rd in States for New York - District IV in the 2004-2005 season.
