    I am about 18 minutes in watching on a bigger screen, just paused.

    For me, this maybe one of your best videos yet, the amount of valuable information covered just to this point is outstanding.

    I haven’t seen anything approaching this level of real world lessons learned on any video available online to date.

    Truly outstanding Max!

    Back to the video… ;-)

    Like a beachball! :yahoo:

    I wonder how many will realize the significance of target cam elevated?

    Or truly appreciate the level of exertion low and high crawling tests your fitness level?

    Well done Max!

    Holy Shit! Did the mask just slip? On a scale of 1 – 10, how psycho is 19:35……woops.

    Great video on many levels. I’m reminded specifically of a moment at CLC. Goggles fogged up, teammates dying around me, exhausted, hugging a tree for cover, unable to locate the enemy . . . I tell my buddy I can’t see the enemy. Max gets up in my grill and says in his gentle range voice . . . “WORK YOUR FUCKING COVER!” This video will be an amazing resource for years to come on numerous foundational concepts taught at MVT. Well done Max! It’s on my bucket list now to be an extra in a Max Talk.

    LoL, I thought that was perfect. Sure, someone will probably get offended at fat shaming, but they’re also not your audience.

    Great use of cover, you really disappeared into the vegetation well. The bit at 19:35 was pretty funny I thought, reminded me that same maniacal laugh I heard at the house of woe in Brady this year, when @shooter laced me up the back with UTM during a free for all!
    But seriously, this was a great video on use of cover! I like the term cover from view and cover from fire better as well.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen any YT instructor crawl all over the ground.

    Most comments seem to be positive… and with the dual camera setup it is a big eye opener to the uninitiated.

    Max, I know that laugh… its finding enjoyment and humor when you know your about to possibly experience pain, and discomfort. Those individuals make great team mates, and can really thrive off each other even when the chips are down.

    :good: Yes, I think this is the best Max Talk video yet!

    @brushpopper – Sorry! Max was speaking English, so I misunderstood his instructions…. you did kill me back at least once after that, though.

    Great video. The elevated target cam gave us a better view of your assault so can I assume that Ivan level was worse for trying to spot you?

    Is there any benefit to doing a break contact video, or would popping up to lay the hate actually give away your position?
