I started training with the suples team in boise in 2013 and from day 1 I felt the difference. I was used to heavy Olympic lifting and cross fit style circuits but none of that could prepare me for actual grappling sports quite like the Suples Training systems, namely the Bulgarian bag. To give an example when I started training in the system I couldn't do one muscle up(pull up above the bar) and now I do sets of 10! Since 2013 Ive used the bulgarian bag and other suples tools to strength train weekly and have made huge improvements to my physique, functional strength, and muscle endurance. I currently implement many strength training tools in my academy from Suples and the students that take advantage have seen huge improvements, this system changed my life as well as many others in the gym. If I had to have only one tool to complement my grappling training it would be the Bulgarian bag for sure. Many thanks to Ivan Ivanov, Bridgette Hosick, Sylvia Ivanov, Ivan Delchev, and Chris Caldwell for all the support, training, lessons, and butt whooping over the years. I'll be a suples strength training advocate for life.
