DVD Information

Imagine having more speed and explosive power. If you are an athlete, increasing speed, strength, and explosive power are critical components of success (even if your sport is Golf or badminton, okay maybe not badminton ;-). Whether you are a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, you will be a better athlete if you are faster and more explosive.

Right now, you can get the 90 minute information packed DVD for only $29.95 (shipping is free for US orders). This is a very small fee to pay for the content driven DVD. The DVD comes with a free 123 page E-book with enough training programs to keep you busy all year. This is a complete package of high quality instruction and what to do with the instruction. This will not be another DVD that you watch once and then store in your closet. It is a complete package that you will value for years to come. The only you have to lose is weakness and weakness is not worth having. Order the DVD right now. Not tomorrow or next week. Procrastination is for losers.

"Watched Kettlebell Solutions For Speed And Explosive Strength and in two words it is F'N AWESOME!!! Thank You for a kick ass product Mike. A HAPPY Customer!" Robert Hines

"You have done so many things right. Terrific would be an understatement. The Kettlebell Solution for Size and Strength DVD was a tough act to follow. I enjoyed the beach setting, but I was equally impressed by the natural backgroud in this DVD. The quality of the DVD is key. Thank you for that. The user guide adds so much. It more than doubles the learning experience. It is refreshing, reassuring, and something of a relief that you communicate so well. Vagueness and ambiguities cloud understanding. You provide clarity with patience and thoroughness. Thanks for your newsletters. They are a source of inspiration. You delivered on your promise - a lot of useful information with no fluff. Thank you and I look forward to more extraordinary DVDs."--Jim Burns 

"I have all of Mikes DVD's and for me this was the best one. Mike has an awesome teaching style and holds nothing back. The DVD's keep getting better each time. Not only speed and explosiveness but some very cool tips and exercises. This DVD is a great investment. Great stuff Mike."-- Ken Black, RKC 

DVD Information 

Need more info? Keep reading. Of course, speed and explosive power is not just beneficial for athletes. You never know when speed will come in handy. For example, the next time your wife or girlfriend wants to watch a "Sex in the city" marathon, you will be able to move faster and get out of dodge before it is too late and ladies the next time your man wants to watch a "Jackass" marathon you will be able to explode out of the room and vanish without a trace. I wish I had this DVD back when I was in high school and used to ditch all of the lame pep rallies. I would have had a 100% success rate in escaping every time. 

All joking aside, this is a very comprehensive DVD that goes over how to build speed and explosive power in four different categories: Full body explosive power, Upper body explosive power, Lower body explosive power, and Rotational explosive power. Translation? You will be one explosive hombre after you practice the exercises on this DVD and follow the programs in the free DVD user guide. I did not leave anything out on this DVD. 

Similar to my last DVD, this DVD contains 90 minutes of fluff free information. Every exercise is picked for a reason and every exercise is covered in detail. I did not split the content into two DVD's to charge you more or purposely hold back so that I can make a sequel down the road. I have covered everything that I want to cover on the topic of speed and explosive strength with kettlebells on this DVD and you will know exactly what exercises to do and what programs to apply for your goals. 

Even if you do not care about getting faster and more explosive, you will love the wide variety of exercises that this DVD contains. We all know how boring training can get when you do the same exercises over and over again. Get this DVD now and rest assured that boredom will be the least of your worries for many moons. In addition, I have worked on my comedy act and my humor is much better this time. That alone is worth the price of the DVD right? Well maybe not, but it cannot hurt. Nothing worse than a boring training DVD that is as interesting as watching drywall painting. 

Before we get into the exercises on the DVD, let me just make it clear that this is not a beginner kettlebell DVD. While I do go over each exercise in detail and offer alternatives for the exercises that are technically demanding,  if you have never used a kettlebell before, then this is not the DVD for you. Again,  I do review the basics in detail that are relevant to the content of this DVD. However, you want to be comfortable with the basic kettlebell drills such as: Military presses,  swings, cleans, and snatches before moving on to this DVD. That said, the drills on the DVD are not super complex or beyond the range of the average trainee and I do spend a great deal of time explaining each exercise in detail so do not be intimidated.  Of course, if you cannot handle the exercises, you can always get Richard Simmons' "Sweating To The Oldies." Just kidding.  Without further adieu, here are the awesome exercises are on the DVD:  

 

The Exercises 

Full Body Explosive Power

Double Clean and Speed Press

The Clean and press is a well-known full body exercise that hits just about every muscle in the body. With the Double Clean and Speed Press, you are going to work on completing the exercise as rapidly as possible while using just enough tension to get the job done. To do so, you have to be able to transition from loose to tight back to loose again without missing a beat. This is a very useful skill to acquire for athletes. Moreover, The Double Clean and Speed Press will teach you how to activate fast twitch muscle fibers that will make you faster and stronger. Thus if you have hit a plateau on the regular kettlebell Military Press, try doing Speed Presses for a few weeks and blast through that plateau. Learn where to look when doing presses for increased strength and power. How to transition from tight to loose and determine how much tension you need to get the job done. Learn why you want to lockout forcefully and return the bells back to the rack position as quickly as you can to conserve strength. 

Explosive Squat Shrug

This is a great exercise for developing full body explosive power. You start the power with the lower body and transfer it into the upper body in each repetition. The best part about this exercise is that it is not technically demanding and fairly easy to learn. It does not require the technique of the clean or snatch, yet has many of the benefits. It is also a tremendous trap developer and strengthener. Learn how to make the explode and shrug at the same time and what you can do if you lack the coordination to make it happen. Do not worry about being frustrated. There is always an alternative to an exercise that you can use to work up to the real deal. Learn what the common technique mistakes are and how to avoid them. 

Full Body Attack (Beginner)

Looking for a way to make Double Kettlebell Cleans more challenging? If yes, then you are going to love this exercise. This is an incredible exercise that will teach you how to use your body as one unit and build explosive power from the ground up. It is particularly beneficial for combat athletes. Often in a fight you have to get from the floor to your feet explosively against the resistance of an opponent. That is exactly what you are doing with the "Full Body Attack." My friend Dylan Thomas, RKC came up with a modified version of the Full Body Attack that is great for beginners. Instead of ending the movement with a clean and push press, you end it with a deadlift. This an incredible exercise for sports such as Football, Wrestling, MMA, and Golf (Well maybe not Golf) 

Full Body Attack (Advanced)

This is an outstanding exercise that will teach you how to use your body as one unit and build explosive power from the ground up. It is particularly beneficial for combat athletes. Often in a fight you have to get from the floor to your feet explosively against the resistance of an opponent. That is exactly what you are doing with the "Full Body Attack." With this exercise, you start in a pushup position and explode to the starting position of a clean. Then you clean the bells and move into a push press. Return the bells back to the starting position and you have completed one rep. This is a three step explosive drill and if you only have time to do one exercise on this DVD, then this is the one for you. Learn what the common mistakes are and how to avoid them. This exercise is no joke and it is all too easy to get sloppy if you are not clean on how to perform each step. 

Full Body Defense

This is a variation of the full body attack in which the exercise starts in the rack position (no pun intended) of the Clean. Take the bells to the floor from the rack position of a Clean and jump back into a sprawl. Basically, the sprawl looks like the end position of a Hindu Pushup. This is another exercise that is beneficial to combat athletes as the sprawl is a how you defend against takedowns. This is a great exercise for teaching you how to move from a standing position to the ground quickly. The fact that you are working against resistance makes it even more effective. 

Double Stomp Jerk

The Double Stomp Jerk is the opposite of the Russian Kettlebell Jerk. The Russian Kettlebell Jerk teaches you how to be as loose as possible and how to conserve energy. With the Kettlebell Stomp Jerk you are going to be as explosive as possible. This is another great exercise for developing explosive full body power. You learn how to explode with your legs and then immediately explode with your upper body all in one exercise. Then you learn how to absorb shock as you bring the bells back down to the starting position in one swift move. Learn how to stomp through to apply explosive power and how to get under the bells to finish the move. You have to make both happen at the same time to avoid turning the exercise into a variation of the Military Press. 

Upper Body Explosive Power

Lifeline TNT Military Press

Stuck at a Military press plateau? You need the power of forced acceleration and the TNT Military Press will get you there in full effect. With weights the resistance goes down the closer you get to the completion of a repetition. With resistance bands, the resistance increases the closer you get to the completion of a rep. Thus, you have to keep the tension on from start to finish. There is no drop off point in which you can decrease the tension. You learn how to apply force to the entire rep. Work with the TNT cable for a few weeks and then go back to the Kettlebell Military Press. You will have a sensation of the kettlebells flying up on each rep. One thing that I really like about the TNT Cable is that the cables have handles. The handles allow you to hold the cables like two kettlebells for a very precise transfer. Learn how to get the cables in place and the most efficient technique for maximum power. Learn why the stance that you take is critical to completing the exercise and how to make the exercise harder or easier. Learn where to position the cables for maximum control and power on each rep. The difference that this makes alone is tremendous. 

Alternating Hang Clean

This is a killer exercise for building upper body explosive power. To a large extent, it takes the hamstrings and lower body out of the equation so that the traps have to generate power to get the bells in place. Also a great exercise for variety when you have two kettlebells that are too easy for regular cleans. This exercise is far more challenging for cleans and will give you an opportunity to dust off those light kettlebells that you have not used in ages. In addition, this exercise is a killer arm exercise and will help build up your biceps (Come on, you know you want that to). 

Alternating Hang Clean and Press

Now we are going to take the Alternating Hang Clean up a notch by adding a press to each rep. Now you are learning up explode with your upper body and go from a loose state to a tight state to transition into the press and then get loose again by going back to the clean. This is also a great exercise to work through One-arm Kettlebell Military Press plateaus. Why? Get the DVD and find out. You cannot expect me to give everything away for free. 

One-arm Hang Snatch

The Kettlebell Snatch is a great exercise for developing full body explosive power with particular emphasis on the hamstrings. With the Hang Snatch, we are going to reduce the involvement of the hamstrings and focus on developing explosive traps. Again, this is a great exercise for ramping up the difficulty of regular snatches. In addition, this is a great exercise to move up to if you find regular one-arm snatches too easy, but either do not have a heavier kettlebell or do not have the strength to move up to a heavier kettlebell yet. This exercise starts at an area that is a weak link for many trainees. Spend some time working on the Hang snatch and you will be much stronger when you go back to full range snatches. 

Double Hang Snatch

Time to take the benefits of the one-arm hang snatch up a big notch. The Double Hang Snatch requires more explosive power and coordination. Learn how to get the bells moving and why you need to focus on getting under the bells to get the job done. Similar to the One-arm Hang Snatch, this is a fantastic drill for increasing the difficulty of Double Kettlebell Snatches. You are taking the largest power generator of the snatch out of the equation and have to generate power from an area that is probably your weak link on regular snatches. Great exercise for working up to heavier Double Snatches. 

Kettlebell Front Snatch

The Kettlebell Front Snatch is an incredible upper back developer that I learned about form Pavel. Pavel states that powerlifting great Donnie Thompson and grip master John Brookfield are big fans of this exercise because it builds a strong upper back. It is also a great exercise for building explosive upper body power. Moreover, it is a great exercise to use for working up to snatching a heavier kettlebell. Learn why on the DVD. Learn where to punch through and how to position your body for maximum power and control. Moreover, learn where to punch through as a beginner and then how to ramp up the difficulty.  Finally, learn how to use this exercise to work up to heavier one-arm snatches. 

Guard Attack

This is an exercise for MMA fighters and grapplers.  Sports in which you often end up on you’re back called the guard and have to fight off an opponent in the mount position. Learning how to be strong and powerful out of the guard position is a valuable skill. The Guard Attack will help build explosive strength from the guard position. Even if you could care less about its combat sports application, the Guard attack is also great for building a strong and a powerful pecs, strong triceps, strong shoulders, and impressive core strength This exercise combines some of the benefits of the Turkish Get-up and the Alternating Floor Press in one drill.

Lower Body Explosive Power

Explosive Double Swing

The Double Kettlebell Swing is one of the most powerful ballistic drills that you can use with kettlebells. There is no way to muscle up two heavy kettlebells. You have to have powerful hamstrings to make Double Swings happen. With the Explosive Double Swing you are going to focus on driving through with the hips as fast and as powerful as possible. Do not worry how high the bells get. In fact, they should not get higher then chest level. Keep the tension and focus on the hamstrings. A large percentage of the lower body explosive power comes from the hamstrings. Is your lower back sore from doing Double Swings? It should not be and it will not be after you apply the techniques that I cover on the DVD. Learn how to do the exercise correctly for maximum power and safety. 

One-arm Kettlebell Stomp Snatch

The Stomp Snatch is another exceptional kettlebell drill that develops tremendous hamstring explosive power. Unlike the Kettlebell Sport Snatch which is fluid so that high reps can be accomplished (which by the way is great for muscular endurance), the Kettlebell Stomp Snatch focuses on maximizing speed and explosive strength. Heavy kettlebells are used for low reps. Learn when to stomp and how get under the bell for maximum power. The Stomp snatch is a very effective move for moving up to a heavier kettlebell. The more explosive you are on snatches, the more weight you can get overhead. Break that plateau with the One-arm Stomp Snatch.

Explosive Kettlebell Lunge

Forget about lame lunges that you see in women’s aerobics classes. This one actually has tremendous value. It teaches you how to absorb shock and put the breaks on with your hamstrings. This is an invaluable skill for sport specific application. Moreover, it is not technically demanding and it is relatively easy to learn. In addition to the explosive benefits, this exercise is a great addition to squats for building strong and toned legs with particular emphasis on the glutes and hamstrings.

Kettlebell Split Jerk

The Kettlebell Split Jerk is another excellent exercise for building explosive power for takedowns as well as learning how to put the breaks on with your hamstrings. While the upper body does come into play to a small degree, the focus is on using the legs to get the kettlebell moving and using the legs to get under the bell as rapidly as possible. Great exercise for wrestlers and grapplers for improving takedown speed and power. The exercise takes the benefits of the Explosive Lunge up a notch and is a great exercise to move up to after you get the basics down. 

Kettlebell Split Snatch

Learn how to combine the benefits of the Explosive lunge with the benefits of the One-arm Kettlebell Snatch. This is a two step explosive power drill. You have drive through with the hips to get the bell moving and then jump into an explosive lunge to get under the bell. This exercise requires much more explosive power than the Lunge or Split Jerk and a good deal of coordination as well. It is worth the time that it takes to learn and do not be intimidated. Once you get the Explosive Lunge and Jerk done you will be able to transition into the Split Snatch and take your explosive power through the roof. Learn when to jump into the lunge position and how to complete each rep for maximum benefit.

.Rotational Explosive Strength 

Crossover Snatch

Rotational strength is very important for throws and powering an opponent to the ground. Also a great exercise if you are a big fan of “Saturday Night Fever.” In addition, this is a great drill that will carry over to starting our lawn mower or your Yacht. All joking aside, this is an incredible exercise for explosive strength from a different angle than regular snatches. You will love the feel of this exercise and the new challenge that it presents. Great exercise for  building strong rear delts and powerful rotational power. Great application to boxing, any striking martial art, and Judo. Also a great exercise for golfers

  Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I noticed that many of the exercises on the DVD, require two kettlebells. I only have one kettlebell. Can I benefit from the DVD? 

A: Out of the 18 exercises (variations not included), only 6 can be done with two kettlebells. I would wait until you have two kettlebells before getting this DVD so that you can work on all of the drills. Frankly, if you only have one kettlebell you are really missing out as Double KB work is a blast. 

Q: Can the exercises on the DVD be done with Dumbbells? 

A: Yes, every exercise can be done with dumbbells, but this DVD was made specifically for application   with kettlebells. I think that you will still benefit with dumbbells but to be honest I have not tried most of the exercises with dumbbells. 

Q:  I am not an athlete and developing speed and explosive power does not seem necessary for my training goals.  Is your DVD a fit? 

A: It depends on what your training goals are. The basic kettlebell exercises are all that most people need to have productive workouts and get in great shape. However, if you need some variety in your workouts and have been stuck at a training plateau then you will really benefit from the exercises on this DVD. For example, the clean and speed press and TNT cable press will really help you blast through pressing plateaus. The exercises on this DVD will get you faster and more explosive. The faster you move the stronger you will be. Just look at sprinters compared to marathon runners. 

Q: Most DVD's do not give much info on program design. What about yours? 

A: While I do not discuss program design on the DVD in detail, this DVD comes with a 123 page e-book called "The Aggressive Strength Solution For Incredible Kettlebell Training." The e-book is loaded with programs and training information and has a section on how to optimize anabolic hormone levels.  Just the e-book alone is worth the price of the DVD. The e-book will be emailed to you when you place your order. It will keep you busy for a long time. 

Q: Is this DVD just a demonstration of the listed exercises or do you go into detail?

A: I go over how to do each exercise in detail and how to maximize the benefits of each drill. I can describe the DVD in one word: Detailed! You will not have any doubt on how to maximize performance on the listed exercises after viewing the DVD. 

Q: It looks like there is some overlap between this DVD and your MMA DVD. I already have the MMA DVD, do I need this one? 

A: While it is true that there is some overlap, this DVD is much more instructive than the MMA DVD and has a lot of exercises that are not on the MMA DVD. Moreover, the content in the DVD user guide does not overlap with any of my other DVD's.  I have no doubt that you will enjoy the DVD and if for any reason you are not  satisfied,  just send the DVD back to me for a full refund. 

Q: I do not live in the US, is this DVD compatible with my player? 

A: The DVD will work on all NTSC compatible players. 

Q: What if I am not happy with the DVD? 

A: Of course, like most reputable companies, I offer a money back guarantee. However, I want an explanation from you if you were dissatisfied so that I can improve on future products. 

Q: Can I email you if I have questions about the DVD? 

A: Sure, email me after you have watched the DVD and have read the User guide and I will be happy to help out. Most of your questions will be answered in the DVD and User guide so review both.

Mike Mahler takes you through, step-by-step on how to perform each of these new ground breaking and challenging ketllebell exercises. He is clear and detailed in his explanations and provides concise views so that you can master each and every one of these powerful, body alerting, explosive exercises. Mike spares the “fluff” and cuts to the chase to help you increase your need for speed and strength. Needless to say Mike makes it very easy for the viewer to “work along” with him and learn these advanced body blasting techniques.
As a women who has participated in extreme sports, including cycling and mixed martial arts for over a decade and prefers a “no wimps allowed” approach to my workouts; I have found “Solutions for Speed and Explosive Strength” to be a hardcore joyride down the explosive strength training trail. Get this DVD or be left in the dust."
--Sherri Holloway – Fitness Enthusiast - Brooklyn, NY

"I love the fact the Mike is such a no nonsense, real deal guy an just gets to the training. All meat, no potatoes as usual and this DVD doesn't disappoint. It comes at a great time for me as I design programs and help train Frank Shamrock for his MMA fights. Speed and explosive power are just what the doctor ordered. I know Frank holds Mike in great esteem for his coaching and innovative training methods.

I've gotten some great new ideas for exercises, sequences and approaches from Mikes newest DVD. The fact that he blows through these exercises so easily is inspiring too. Its always great to see something demonstrated so well with such heavy loads. Just shows you indeed what is possible.

And, as always, the DVD is full of great technical and safety cues to make each move more efficient and powerful. Well done as usual Mike, can't wait to see what you come up with next!"--Mark Reifkind, Owner of Girya Kettlebell Training 

"Nice job (again) on the latest DVD! I really like the front-snatch and crossover-snatch exercises and plan to implement them ASAP. I may have to break down and get a Lifeline cable too.  Keep up the great work, I have kept all three of your kettlebell DVD's, while everyone else's have ended up on evilbay."--Thad Kacsandy

"Mike Mahler delivers the goods again!  When I found out Mike Had a new DVD on Speed & Explosive Power, I was looking forward to seeing it.  I expected to find useful info on increasing speed and I did. What surprised me though was that Mike has adapted the legendary Westside Barbell principals to kettlebell training.  Very informative, very entertaining and very useful. Thanks for another great DVD Mike!"-- David Whitley, RKC and founder of Irontamer.com

"It is a great DVD! With your clear-cut descriptions and a view shown from every conceivable angle, I was able to put your program into immediate use. This is an exciting product that every athlete or anyone who wants to move like an athlete should have! Again, thanks for a great presentation."-- Eric P McCarty, Author of "Does God Have A Hero: Meditations For Compassionate Living."

"I just watched your new DVD KB Solutions for Speed and Explosive Strength.  Great job.  The way to describe each exercise, offer tips on completing it and the demonstration show your extensive knowledge of KB training for entire body development.  Your Solutions for Size and Strength DVD changed the way I trained with KBs and the outcome has been incredible.  With the summer sports season approaching I can't wait to integrate some of these new exercises into my current KB routine.  Thanks again for a great DVD.  I will highly recommend it to everyone I know."--Mark Wilson 

"I have this DVD and Mike's MMA DVD - both of these are TOPS! I've already been using some of the KB training from his new DVD on my athletes. Can't go wrong w/either of these videos!"--Zach Even-esh of www.undergroundstrengthcoach.com

"Just finished watching Mike's newest DVD "KB Solutions for Speed and Explosive Strength". It was fantastic!!! 90 minutes of kettlebell exercises designed to increase speed and explosive strength. Mike's great personality and passion for the iron game shines through making the DVD fun to watch from start to finish. There is no fluff in this DVD just 90 minutes of useful information. Each exercise is demonstrated from multiple angles, which I believe, will really help viewers with their exercise form. He also breaks down each movement going over possible technique flaws, demonstrating learning progressions, and explaining how each exercise may benefit athletes in there prospective sports. The DVD comes with a user guide that in itself is worth the price of the DVD. It goes over the application and execution of each exercise in addition to having a huge section on program design including multiple sample programs. If you are looking to develop explosive speed and strength either for yourself or your athletes and are into kettlebells this is a must have DVD. Mikes stuff just gets better and better. Congrats Mike on your new dvd and your continued success."-- Andy Schnadig, Strength And Conditioning Coach 

"I like my training simple: I do hardcore basics and variations on hardcore basics, nothing else. A variation doesn't make the cut unless it is straightforward, direct, and productive. Mike Mahler's Speed and Explosive Strength video immediately gave me many new things to work on. It is just the thing if you want to give your training a jolt of useful creativity."--Rob Lawrence, Senior RKC 

"I have purchased all of Mike's previous DVD's, so when this DVD came out, I did the same.  As before, I was not disappointed!  Mike does a great job of demonstrating the exercises and showing them from various angles.  Small details are explained which make a big difference in the exercises' execution/effectiveness.  If you are a combat athlete - get this.  The "Full Body Attack" and "Full Body Defense" are exercises that every Jiu Jitsu, submission or MMA fighter should have in their arsenal.  Sprawling and then exploding up to standing position with resistance, speed and power - monster carry over.  If that is not enough, you get a free user's guide with the DVD.  The guide reviews each exercises in detail and even provides a number of workout programs.  This isn't a wimpy document - 34 full pages of information"--Ken Blackburn, RKC and BJJ Instructor 

"Kettlebell Solutions for Speed and Explosive strength is a great addition to my Mahler DVD collection.  It's interesting to see how classic kettlebell exercises and concepts can be augmented and combined to create new exercises that will foster speed and explosive power.  All of the exercises are explained in succinct detail, and it's also great that you've included trouble-shooting tips for the more technically demanding exercises.  Your comedy routine has definitely improved!  I especially like the bit about your private jet and the Swedish bikini team :)  I'd like to work towards including some of these new exercises into my regimen, and possibly dedicate a workout day to increasing explosive strength." Clint Clark

"First off I am just dropping you a line to say that your website has provided me with much needed mental strength and stability in my life.  As well as awesome training tips you also provide a great benefit of how I can live my life aggressively and to fulfillment.  See, I am a 23 year old ex army serviceman who has just recently gotten out of a 5 year commitment with the last year being an involuntary extension (stopploss) for a year of service in Iraq.  I had been on two tours of duty before this to Afghanistan and was all ready to get out when a month before my discharge BAM! time to do another year.  I addition I was put in charge of a 9 man squad which can considerably change the game for a leader as well as put an unsurpassed amount of stress on an individual.  While being overseas I was shot at, almost blown up, experienced panic attacks and the indescribable nagging feeling that we just weren't doing enough to fight the insurgency.  Since being out I have struggled through what I can only describe as a mental breakdown as well as coping with the occasional nightmare and survivor's guilt.  I have been lifting weights as well as various forms of cardio for about 7 years now and stumbled upon your website while looking for a change of pace from the traditional weights and immediately ordered your size and strength dvd and soon after your explosive strength dvd.  Your dvd got here in about 2-3 days which is amazing service, I also have 2 36lb kettlebells and 2 53lb kettlebells with which to do your routines outlined in the users guide.  The point of this e-mail is not to ass kiss though, it is in fact simply and from the heart say thank you.  Thank you not only for providing sound and expert training advice, but also to help someone who needs a good bit of mental clarity in his life and a wise word every now and then.  I look forward to reading your newsletters every week and use them along with exercise and prayer to hold myself together.  Thank You."Loren M Banducci, former SGT, United States Army 4th Battalion, 31st Infantry Regiment "Polar Bears" 10th Mountain Division "I received the D VD and have been over it about a hundred times. There is a ton of stuff there! Last year you gave me some great advice regarding putting together our wrestling team’s strength training program. We used 4 weeks of 5X5, GVT, Rest Pause, and EDT, all with one week of active rest. We only have one regular season loss this season and for the first time in school history made it to the PA State Dual Meet Competition. I think we are headed in the right direction!" Peter S Smith II, Director of Student Services, Abington Heights School District"I've just taken the barest peek at the DVD (it arrived yesterday) and so far I think it's great! Thanks for the help with my training. The Crossover Snatch is destined to become *the* secret weapon for serious stickfighters (Kali, escrima, Dog Brothers, whoever). There's an upward block in stickfighting that's pretty standard. For most, it's also pretty weak. Aggressive stickfighters make the block into an upward strike. Aggressive stickfighters who practice the Crossover Snatch will soon be sending their opponent's sticks sailing far, far away!"--Scott Kinney

"At Disneyland the very best and most fun rides used to require an "E" ticket to get on. The Speed DVD was a "E": ticket ride from start to finish. I really enjoyed the split jerk, split snatch, hang clean and press and hang snatch. I really can feel the explosive energy developing. The menu and layout were well planned. I always appreciate your helpful tips to improve which comes from your excellent skills as an instructor."--Billy Cook, RKC and CST 

"This DVD is chock-full of usefull information. There are absolutely no "fillers" or "fluff" on this DVD, it is filled with solid "meat and potatoes" type information. Mike Mahler solidly covers all his bases with the demonstration of each exercise, shooting each exercise from multiple angles and giving a clear, yet thorough, description of each exercise. He even goes through an extremely helpful troubleshooting after each exercise going over common mistakes people make and how to correct them. It is extremely helpful to say the least.If you are an athlete looking for a serious edge on your competition, then this DVD is sure to put you on the right track."--Charl Marais
