    I was listening to Zahabi on the JRE podcast and he mention that there was some confusion with GSP translation claiming that he doesn't do any strength and conditioning. Did Zahabi ever got around to explaining why that is?

    Yes he basically said that GSP views S&C as extremely hard conditioning, which they don’t do

    GSP did a ton of work with Jonathan Chaimberg in the past. He definitely built a strong S&C base back then.

    I would argue he built his base with Jimmy Cournoyer.

    That whole podcast was interesting. Not sure I agree with everything for normal people, but it certainly makes sense for MMA athletes.
