“[…with 100 workouts at the end] Mark takes the guesswork out. Just follow what is explained and see the results”
I purchased DRILLSKILL 2 months ago and love it! Great information and very well presented.
My favorite part is the ‘Animal Drills’ section. These drills are great warm-ups and they are quite a workout too.
I also like the emphasis on balance (more important as one gets older). The routines at the end are very helpful.
Mark takes the guesswork out; just follow what is explained and see the results.
I highly recommended this manual!

“A valuable resource to the active combat athlete or weekend warrior”
The DRILLSKILL Workout Manual and program provides a valuable resource to the active combat athlete or weekend warrior simply looking to improve their performance and create an out of the box workout experience. His system approaches sport performance improvement by breaking it down into several specific areas: Basic functional movements, strength and power development, and mixed martial arts sport specific movements.
Following an introduction to the system and exercise physiology principles is a comprehensive manual of exercises including photographs with step by step instructions and tips. One is almost tempted to put the manual down and begin jumping around at this point but hold your horses.
The real win comes in the “Blocks” of exercises that follow in which Mark has thoughtfully laid out a vast number of progressions that range in aim from general fitness, strength and athletic improvement, to combat skills which all build upon each other and take the thought out of planning your workouts. You could literally pick a block per day and not have gone through them all for months but this is also taken into account with scheduling assistance from the level of the weekend warrior to the competitive athlete.
A beautiful aside for this system is that it could actually be applied to improve performance in ANY sport by simply switching out the MMA sport specific movements of one’s particular sport. You play basketball while your daughter plays soccer and your wife enjoys kickboxing? All of you could benefit from working through the warm-up, strength and athleticism training, and adding your own sport specific drills as a finisher – except the kickboxer wife as Mark already has all the legwork done for her drills.
In summary this manual provides a thought process, comprehensive exercise manual and programming that has a lot of years of study and training to back it up and it can certainly help any combat athlete focus their off the mat time to improve performance.
As a trainer, coach, and professional Emergency Medical Technician I can also confidently say that with careful selection of exercises and blocks this program can be an effective toolset for any athlete with any given sport of choice.
Whether you are a combat athlete or general fitness enthusiast in need of some out of the box programming this manual is well worth the small investment.

Via email: “Duuuuuuuuuuuude! This is Awesome!
“The pictures were easy to follow. I love the animal movements. I’ve rarely (if ever) come across any movement named for an animal that wasn’t a killer exercise. These were no different. I’ve seen enough to know immediately that this is the beginning of a love/hate relationship.
This is LEGIT functional training. You’re not just having people do trendy new exercises or ones solely to look better on the beach with this workout; you’re building stronger humans.
I’m loving the multi-pronged approach. This is a blend of every badass workout I’ve ever done. There are jumps, throws, and Olympic lifts along with Powerlifting moves…..on this program I think I’ll even do BJJ drills more often.
I’m excited about this as a grappler, but I think the appeal is great for anyone who is looking to take their performance to the next level. I’ll be using this to supplement training for an obstacle race. I think you’ve really got something spectacular here.”
