    Well, I know what them pads are. I train with them every day... They dont condition you any better than the bags do. They might be slightly harder, but have a little bounce from the trainers arms when you hit them.

    ... So if that is what pads are, then why do you guyz think they would do any better for conditioning than bags would?

    Agreed, but I only have access to those at the gym. No room/money for my own heavy bag.

    I believe this thread is better placed in the Strikeistan section. Thread moving in progress...
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    t-nation - Dissecting the deadlift. Anatomy and Muscle Balancing Videos.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    As long as its non-toxic and doesn't bounce back I don't see why it would be a problem.
