About six years ago, when John Perretti, the legendary lifelong martial artist and former UFC and Extreme Fighting matchmaker, broke his back for the second time, he knew he had to seek out the best person to help with his rehab. That person was the noted fitness expert and personal trainer Karl List.
Karl List is a fitness expert with over 20 years of experience as a personal trainer, and was a natural (drug-free) bodybuilding champion. He and his wife and business partner, Jodi Friedman List, are the co-owners of List Integrated Systematic Training. Their clients are trained at the world-famous Gold's Gym in Venice, California, where Karl is the only trainer who maintains a client base of personal trainers.
To address the issue of the growing number of injuries in the combat sports, John Perretti recently spoke with Karl List. In this first interview, they discussed a wide range of topics including rehab from injuries, the need for athletes to train their entire body, bad training methods used by many boxers, the high injury rate in mixed martial arts, how the improper punching techniques common in mixed martial arts lead to injuries for the punchers, the proper use of machines in training, and more.
If you are or have ever been an athlete, or even if you are just a fan of the athletes, this series of discussions is indispensible since they will provide candid and cutting-edge information and analysis which few media outlets dare to address.
