Which part of your martial arts has been impacted the most by Max Results?
This is a hard question to answer. Max is a beast, while also being the smartest man I’ve ever met, so there is nothing that Max hasn’t helped us with for martial arts, but if I had to pick one, it would be endurance. I know, its not boxing or kicking or one of the three other tips we do at the dojo, but overall, Max has impacted my endurance more that imaginable. I’m mentioning this because of the 2 mile run coming up. I’ve realized that I’ve been able to run more easily and to harder things with less effort. This has been so helpful and will be while transitioning into our jujitsu part of our test. Max has helped so much and I am so grateful that he’s spending his Saturdays making some crazy strong people.
What surprised you the most about training with Max?
Most people know now, but I have been training with Max for a year or so before the Black Belt Test, but the thing I was most surprised about was how difficult it would really be. We have the whole gym to ourselves on Saturday, so Max really has more time to focus on breaking us. The one upside though is definitely how fast this test has passed. I am so surprised how Max has been killing us while time was flying by. On the topic of Max killing us, I realize how if he didn’t kill us, we wouldn’t be as strong as we are now. It is incomprehensible how different and similar the workouts are on Saturday compared to my workouts on Wednesday. We do some of the same workouts we do on Wednesday, but the difficulty is bumped up a couple noches when working out on Saturday. It truly shocks me to this day how insane Max is, and I cant wait to keep training with him for years to come.
