Mike Mahler Buyer’s Guide to Aggressive Strength Kettlebell DVDs
Q: I'm a beginner at kettlebell training--which DVD should I get?
Start with my Level 1 Beginner Kettlebell Workshop. This DVD covers all the basic exercises and in great detail. Level 1 Beginner Kettlebell Workshop also comes with a The Aggressive Strength Kettlebell Workshop Manual, an e-book loaded with photos, exercise descriptions, along with effective training programs for attaining your goals. With this package, you'll learn which exercises to do--and which program works for you--so you can get started safely and effectively.
Will I need two kettlebells to follow the Level 1 Beginner Kettlebell Workshop DVD?
There are plenty of single-arm exercises in the Level 1 Beginner Kettlebell Workshop, so this DVD is a good fit if you only have a single kettlebell. Even so, do yourself a favor and start incorporating double-kettlebell drills into your program. Double KB training is superior to single KBs for many reasons, chiefly, double KB training will improve your one-arm KB skills-- but not the other way around.
Level 1 Beginner Kettlebell Workshop DVD
"Just have to say EXCELLENT DVD. I've been using kettlebells for a few years now but the breakdown you did on the exercises really helped improve my form just on the first workout. The point about how to properly rack the bells and not kill your forearms was so simple. I would instinctively do it on single arm kettlebell exercises but failed to do it on double bell exercises and couldn't figure out what I was doing differently. Again, excellent DVD. I'll have to watch it a few more times to really catch all the details."--Alex Bailey

The Kettlebell Solution for Fat Loss and Mental Toughness
The most effective way to combat fat is to build as much muscle as possible. The more muscle you have the more of a fat burning machine you become. I am happy to report that boring cardio programs that insult your intelligence and make you feel like an idiot are not only unnecessary but counter productive. The real solution to losing fat is not spending hours on low intensity aerobics burning calories. No, the most efficient path to success is the application of the following:
- Muscle building exercises to combat fat forcefully! (This DVD has 18 of them!)
- High Workout Frequency Full Body Workouts to obliterate fat
- Proper Diet as fat loss is 70% diet (No low fat diets allowed!)
- Restoration as you need rest to lose fat (Yes you need sleep and recovery methods)
- Optimizing Sex Hormones (Poor sex hormone levels equals: poor mood and poor body composition period. Men if your T levels are low forget about getting lean and ripped same goes for you ladies!

Q: I'm a serious trainee aiming to advance my game to the next level. I am dedicated to learning new skills and hungry for unique and effective methods to improve my training--which DVD should I buy?
The Collision Course DVD set was made for you! This DVD program is NOT for those content with mediocrity. If you train as a hobby, playing around in a laid back way, definitely forget about Collision Course! Collision Course is for those advanced trainees who want it all.
Guinness World Record holder and grip master, John Brookfield, and his incredible section on Battling Ropes training for top conditioning--which has a powerful carry over to ballistic kettlebell training. Want to improve your kettlebell conditioning? Include some of John’s exercises and you'll be in for an extremely pleasant surprise.
Legendary strongman Mark Philippi contributes outstanding material on the benefit of strongman training for serious athletes. Learn Mark's great tips to increase your every aspect of your strength and power.
Then there's Jon Hinds, one of the best trainers in the game--period. Jon's exceptional section on body weight training, addressing imbalances and improving posture will help you realize your full athletic potential. Jon's instruction is extremely informative and detailed and with it you'll break through your existing training plateaus--provided you actually apply the material instead of just kick back on the couch and watch!
My own section on the DVD set covers advanced kettlebell training. You will love the unique way in which I execute the double kettlebell Military Press. My advanced tips will blast you through any overhead pressing plateaus. Follow my lead and you'll soon be handling more weight for more reps. I also show one-of-a-kind technique alternatives for the Double KB Swing, Double KB Bent-Over Row, One-Arm Snatch, and more. Fact: if you're looking to progress in kettlebell training, you need this information.
Additionally, there's a detailed section on optimizing sex hormones and every copy of Collision Course also comes with my e-book, Optimizing Hormones. You don't want to miss this one.
The truth is you're only as healthy as your hormone levels and since they're only going one direction as you get older--south!--don’t wait until it's too late. Take charge of your health and vitality now!
Finally, the Collision Course DVD sets has two bonus sections:
One, a presentation by Tom Furman on joint mobility. Tom's arsenal of joint mobility exercises--from his years of martial arts training--will get you feeling good and moving like you should.
Two, you get Dylan Thomas' section on kettlebell training for the martial arts. If you practice martial arts and want to maximize kettlebell training for your discipline, you need to learn from Dylan.
The Collision Course DVD set is for serious trainees who've dedicated themselves to bringing out their best. The information offered in Collision Course is advanced--thus not for everyone--you have been warned. If you're ready for it--that is, ready to go to the next level in your training--then Collision Course is right for you. Truthfully, I would buy this DVD set in a heartbeat. There is nothing else like it on the market, which is why I financed the entire production, to bring it out for everyone's benefit.
The Collision Course Nine Hour Strength And Conditioning Workshop DVD
Kettlebell Training And Beyond
DVD Length: 9 hours and 20 minutes and as a bonus you will get a download link for the bonus report “The Collision Course Solution For Optimizing Hormones And Well Being through nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle"
When I ordered the Collision Course DVD set, I was a little concerned over the price. However, since receiving the DVDs, I have watched the entire set of DVD's at least 3 times and I am going back to selected sections fairly regularity. This DVD set, like your other DVDs, transcends the somewhat generic set of content that seems to be prevalent among kettlebell DVD products on the market these days. Each of these presentations could probably exist as a stand-alone product, so it is truly a super value to get all 7 presentations in one package.
By the way, I really appreciate that you allow the original sources to present their material. As I consider you one of my influences, it is great to see the people and the ideas who influence you. I guess it is akin to listening to the music of the bands who influenced ones favorite bands.--Kevin Holowachuk
