An Interview With RussellRedenbaugh

Russell Redenbaugh is an amazing man. I first learned about him while doing an interview with Steve Maxwell. Maxwell told me about a client of his who became a three time world champion in Brazilian Ju-Jitsu and their relationship. It was an interesting enough story that I contacted Russell to see if he would be willing to share his story. He graciously accepted my interview request and here is the result.

Some of the highlights include:

Don't Try This Insane Workout!

A reader recently sent me a link to a new workout program he found online. He wanted to know my thoughts on the program. After reading it through a couple times I found both good and bad, but what inspired me to write this blog post was the extremely high level of skill required to do some of the exercises. In other words how complicated they were.

Squatting for Superior Abdominal Development

Yes, you read that title correctly. Want powerful, well developed abs? Then I strongly suggest you put in some time doing squats!

My focus here is not ripped fitness model six pack abs, but rather a solid powerful core that will enhance your performance in any activity as well as protect your internal organs and lower back. I will address those shredded washboard abs and how to get them in a future post.
