I'm not saying their isn't a place for new S&C ideas and equipment, we all agree a fitter stronger fighter is a better fighter. My issue is how much time is given over to them to the possible detriment of actual fight skills and training.
They're great for conditioning. We used to use them in my gym when i use to spar. Personally i'm not a massive fan of all these 'New Age' techniques. But ultimately you find a recipe that works for you and stick to it. That said i'm a great fan of conditioning and it helps my training immensely.
