Day 2: You're all great! :-)

Hi All,

Just a very quick note - as I'm frantically busy approving memberships :-) – that this is fantastic! The number of accounts we have set up in the last day or so is simply amazing! The visitor rate is also great.

The forum has got off to a great start too! The original forum was awesome and I really want this one to be every bit as good, if not better, a source of good quality information for the 1000s of visitors we get each day. The opening posts are of really good quality and I can’t thank you all enough.

Confusion Drill! Extreme Impact 8 Preview

Welcome to the latest Extreme Impact drill! This drill is from the forthcoming “Extreme Impact Unit 8: Confusion Drills” (to be released in Sept 2010). Confusion drills are ones that mess with the mind and body by never allowing you to “find your groove”. The drills involve variations in tempo, intensity and impact to keep you constantly outside of your comfort zone! I hope you “enjoy” making use of this drill in your training and teaching. We will be back with more samples and exclusive drills soon!

All the best,

Iain

Extreme Impact Out Take

Hi All, Here’s a quick clip from the filming of the first set of Extreme Impact Downloads.

Those who have seen the downloads will know that Steve and I take turns when demonstrating and to explain each of the drills … well on this one I forgot it was my turn! Watch carefully for the shifty sideways glances from Steve and me!

Thankfully, the editing removes all such cock-ups from the final program!

Enjoy!
