I recently rummaged through a large stack of emails, letters, etc.
– and here’s one that caught me eye. It is a powerful testimony to the effectiveness of the routines I teach – and I believe you’ll find it to be
incredibly inspiring. Here goes:
I’ve been meaning to write you for some time, and please feel free to
use this as another testimonial on your website.
I started Combat Conditioning in May 2005 (today is January 12, 2006).
barely able to do the bridge (needing both hands on the ground) for 20
seconds or so. And doing that all took a few weeks of training and still
about killed me.
Well, 8 months later, I’ve come a long way. Last night a 3 minute bridge
with no hands (something I’ve been able to do for months now), followed
(in 20 minutes 32 seconds).
By way of background, I’ve been athletic for the last 12 years or so, running
two marathons when I was 22 years old (I’m almost 34 now) and never did
much of any weight training as I never enjoyed it and never got any benefit
from it. I’ve always been very thin. When I started CC I was 6′ 1′ and 145lbs.
I’m now 166lbs and it’s not any fat that I’ve added.
When I visited family back in Thanksgiving, they were shocked to see how good
One thing I love about Combat Conditioning is that I’m getting both a ‘body-building’ workout and ‘cardio’ workout at the same time. If you’d told me 6 months ago that I’d ever be able to do 200 Hindu Pushups, I wouldn’t have
thought it possible.
I can now also fall into a bridge (backbend), something I’d never been able
to do my entire life.
Bridging alone has virtually eliminated almost all back and neck pain that
I’ve had for years.
Trips to my chiropractor have gone from about once a week to around
once a month.
I do the Mag 7 from Combat Abs – http://www.mattfurey.com/combat_abs.html –
every morning when I wake up. This has greatly helped me as well.
The Farmer Burns Stomach Flattener and Vacuum exercises have really
helped with my digestion.
I followed your advice and bought a Chest-Expander from Lifeline USA,
Portable Power Jumper, and Power Pushup 2, all of which have greatly
assisted my training.
has really changed my life for the better. I am a fairly high-strung guy
and this helped relax me to some degree.
As an attorney (JAG) and officer in the U.S. Army, I have a very demanding
job and CC has helped me to stay focused and better relaxed at work-
something my colleagues and superiors probably appreciate as well.
I’ve followed your advice and quit drinking coffee cold turkey six months
and that alone has yielded great results. I’ve also benefited from my
especially by listening to your monthly CDs, reading the newsletters, and
getting advice and support on the forum.
I can say without a doubt that everything you teach: 1) makes intuitive
sense to me and 2) bears true through the personal results that I am
While your products are not particularly cheap, I am getting much more
value than what I’ve paid for and I only wish I had found out about you
years ago and started these exercises then. Thanks for everything!

M.F. Oh Captain, My Captain. Thanks so much for sending this to me.
It is the perfect pick-me-up, not only for me, but the those who will
read this. You will continue to improve a lot more – and I look forward
to tracking more of your progress.
Well, my friend, that’s all for now.
Do as Captain Weiss had done ….
