Time to develop extreme work capacity, take joint mobility to the next level, optimize hormones and brain health, achieve much needed stress reduction and restoration, and maximize the unique benefits of the versatile kettlebell!

I have not even finished the "In the Age of Quarrel" Kettlebell Dvd but had to give a testimonial on the dvd. I am an IKFF certified kettlebell training so I loved seeing al ot of the exercises that I learned from Steve Cotter, Ken Blackburn, and Jason Dolby. This dvd is a must for any kettlbell lifter. This is the best information I have seen on Sport Kettlebell lifting. I also recommend this to any trainer who practices "Hardstyle" because a weak trainer is an ignorant or close-minded trainer.

Also the joint mobility and dynamic mobility drills are awesome for any martial artist of any style. This mobility training practiced on a regular basis would make an advanced martial artist much more dangerous.

I also recommend this for any personal trainer or strength coach looking to make them stand out as the best in comparison to the competition.

Course Overview: Why this DVD Course Is On The Market And Why It Is A Must Have For Your Collection

I am excited about the all star line up of in the trenches instructors that will be teaching at this course. Once you scroll down and see who is teaching at this course you will be purchasing the DVD set with the quickness.

Why should you buy this DVD set? If you are a trainer you will develop a much better understanding of effective kettlebell training. You will be able to provide much more value to your customers. If you are a trainee you will have a much better understanding on how to merge various styles of kettlebell training effectively for your particular goals.

In addition to the plethora of kettlebell information, as a tremendous bonus the Age of quarrel team covered information on the importance of agility training for mobility and athletic performance, animal based bodyweight training for serious conditioning, the incredible benefits of Indian club training for joint mobility, and the importance of optimizing sex hormones and why doing so starts with the CEO of all hormones as well as the brain.

I got started in kettlebell training back in 2001 and began my kettlebell focused training business in 2002. When I started my business there were probably not more than a hundred people that even owned kettlebells in the United States. Fast forward seven years later to the 2009 Arnold Classic which had hundreds of people competing in a kettlelbell sport competition.There are thousands of people that use kettlebells and hundreds of trainers that teach kettlebell training.

Back in 2002 there was only one major kettlebell certification course and now there are several certification courses. In 2002, there was only one DVD on kettlebell instruction and now there are too many to keep track off. Many trainers have jumped on the kettlebell bandwagon and kettlebell classes, workshops, and private lessons are now available all over the U.S. and overseas.

While the abundance of kettlebell information is great it is also problematic as the great deal of information that is out there can be confusing. Most people have jobs, families, and basically actual lives outside of training and the internet. They simply do not have time to go through all of the information that is out there. As a result they miss out on a lot of great material that is out there. Worse, there is a lot of crappy information out there and if you're not well researched you may end up with a kettlebell training system that is either not a fit or worse still one that could cause more damage than good. While the kettlebell is a versatile tool it is not a fit for everything. For example, some people teach Olympic lifting style moves with kettlebells and that is clearly not the way to go. Doing an explosive Olympic lifting style full clean to get a 35lb kettlebell into the rack position is both unnecessary and frankly pretty asinine.

It is time for a new DVD course with experienced kettlebell trainers that are familiar with the myriad beneficial uses of the versatile kettlebell. The only agenda will be to show you the most effective methods for getting maximum benefits from your kettlebell workouts. Whatever your goals are with kettlebell training, what you learn on this DVD course will accelerate your progress tremendously!

When I decided that I wanted to produce a DVD course on effective kettlebell training to cut through all of the confusion, I knew exactly which trainers I wanted to bring to the table. As someone that has been immersed in the kettlebell world for many years I have the good fortune of rubbing elbows with the best kettlebell trainers out there. Trainers that are dedicated, open minded, and industrious who have an unquenchable thirst for kettlebell training knowledge. Moreover, kettlebell trainers that are exceptional communicators so that you get the most out of their instruction.

Your 2009 line up for the Kettlebell Training In The Age Of Quarrel Workshop DVD Course is: Ken Blackburn, Steve Cotter, Jason Dolby, Andrew Durniat, and Mike Mahler. Many of you are likely familiar with some if not all of the trainers. However, for those of you that are not, lets give you a brief introduction to each trainer.

Meet the Kettlebell Training In the Age Of Quarrel Instructors

Ken Blackburn: Ken Blackburn is the Associate Head Instructor with the International Kettlebell & Fitness Federation. Along with Head Instructor Steve Cotter they travel all over the world teaching workshops and their very popular instructor certification – The CKT (Certified Kettlebell Teacher) course.

A lifelong athlete and martial artist, Ken began seriously training with kettlebells after attending a workshop at his BJJ club with Steve Cotter several years ago. Always on the lookout for training that would enhance his athleticism, he immediately recognized the value in Kettlebells and has been training/teaching with them ever since.

Ken is one of the top American competitors in kettlebell sport and won the Chair Press at the World Championships in November, 2007 doing over 50 reps with two 70lb kettlebells.

I attended a kettlebell certification course that Ken taught with Steve Cotter in 2008. I was very impressed with Ken's teaching abilities. As Ken was teaching I was looking around the room to see how receptive the students were. It was very clear that they were having a great time and were learning a great deal. I knew that I wanted to work with Ken when the right opportunity came along. That opportunity is here and with it is an opportunity for you to learn from one of the best kettlebell instructors around. Ken is an incredible resource for kettlebell training as well as physical training in general. I have had the privilege of having many informative conversations with Ken on kettlebell training and he is a perfect fit for this DVD course.

In addition to covering a great deal of kettlebell work, Ken did an incredible job conveying the benefits of agility training. Not only will Ken's agility training improve your kettlebell game, it will improve any athletic endeavor, as well as enhance well being and health. You are going to be blown away.Ken weighs close to 250lbs and has the agility of a fit person half his age and bodyweight. You will be amazed with Ken's abilities and more importantly with his instruction. What he teaches has the power to improve the quality of your life dramatically. After all, lack of mobility seriously hampers your well being and must be addressed.

Steve Cotter: To say that Steve is enthusiastic about kettlebell training is to make the understatement of the year. Steve is always looking to improve his kettlebell game and share his journey and knowledge with his clients. Several years ago Steve was happy with his kettlebell strength and conditioning but wanted more. As a result, he took a trip to Russia to see how the professional kettlebell lifters train. Steve was blown away with what he saw. He saw incredible athletes doing over a hundred reps with 70lb kettlebells in the jerk and snatch. His thirst for kettlebell knowledge increased dramatically and has never stopped. Steve put together his own kettlebell certification a few years ago which has gone on to be very successful. He literally travels the world sharing his immense knowledge of kettlebell training and continues to seek out the best kettlebell information around.

I have known Steve for many years and his intensity and thirst for training knowledge is unmatched. How many people do you know who are willing to get on a plane and head to Russia to learn more about kettlebells? He is willing to do the intense research and put in the grueling hours of training and instruction that are critical to achieve mastery in any field. You get to benefit from his dedication and hard work and you will not be disappointed.

Steve did an outstanding job covering a variety of supplemental kettlebell lifts to improve the primary competition lifts (jerk, snatch, clean and jerk). Even if you do not have an interest in the competition lifts you will find the supplemental exercises extremely useful. Steve also taught an incredible section on animal based bodyweight exercises. This is some really cool material that is far from the run of the mill bodyweight exercises that you are used to seeing.Finally, Steve's warm-up exercises and chi kung workouts are a must see and something that you will want to add to your program right away.

Jason Dolby: With a diverse athletic background, including martial arts, football, rock climbing and backpacking, Jason has had experience with many fitness tools and conditioning modalities, but feels that the kettlebell reigns supreme. As a personal trainer and competitive kettlebell lifter, Jason feels that the kettlebell builds injury resistance, true endurance strength, core strength, and cardiovascular conditioning all at once.

Aside from improving the health and wellness of the general public, Jason is currently bettering the mobility, conditioning, and athletic performance of firefighters, football players, kettlebell lifters, and MMA fighters. Jason states that "We were never designed to sit all day, whether at the desk, on the couch, in the car, or on a fitness machine! We were designed to move!” Credentials - IKFF (CKT), AKC, RKC, Z-Health (Level three), NASM (CPT), MBG (CNT).

In addition to being an outstanding trainer who is always looking to learn more to help his clients, Jason has a great deal of enthusiasm that is contagious. He is very genuine and an exceptional communicator. He uses a variety of training tools and is more concerned with showing his clients a variety of effective ways to train rather than getting tangled in myopic dogma.Jason is another rare trainer that is willing to put in the research and experience that is necessary to achieve mastery.

Jason did a great job covering how to personalize the kettlebell sport lifts to your unique body type. You will learn how to find the ideal rack position so you can get the most out of cleans, jerks, presses, and clean and jerks. In addition, Jason taught a mind blowing section on the benefits of Indian club swinging. Do not confuse this with clubbell training as this is an entirely different system with a much different focus. Indian club swinging is incredible for mobility and warming up for intense training. This ancient form of physical conditioning is something that you will be adding to your training after you see his masterful instruction on the DVD. That is a certainty!

Andrew Durnait: Andrew is a C.S.C.S and the owner of Durniatstrength.com Andrew is an international kettlebell competitor and current American record holder for the single arm snatch (147 reps, 32kg). He is known for his combining Kettlebell lifting with the Olympic and Power lifts to create the ultimate in athletic potential.

His training has led him to be able to perform many famous strength feats and compete in ultra-endurance events. Andrew has served as an assistant lacrosse coach at the College of Wooster and was an All-American Defenseman in lacrosse at Ohio Wesleyan University.

Andrew is a regular instructor for world champion Valery Federenko's AKC certification course. He is another in the trenches instructor that has a great deal of experience as an athlete, as a trainer, and is very well researched.

When you meet Andrew in person and see his abilities in action as well as his outstanding instruction, you know that he is destined for great things as a trainer and as a strength athlete. Not only does Andrew compete in kettlebell sport competitions, he competes in strongman competitions and does very well at both. While he is well versed in kettlebell training for sport, Andrew also uses a variety of kettlebell exercises with his clients such as Renegade Rows, Turkish-get-ups, and kettlebell squat thrusts. He is an opened minded trainer that is always looking for methods to improve his own training and that of his clients. Andrew did a great job covering how to get the most out of the kettlebell snatch. As the best kettlbell snatcher in the US Andrew is the man to listen to. If you are tired of tearing up your hands and mediocre performance you are going to love Andrew's masterful instruction on mastering the kettlebell snatch. Andrew also did a great job covering the Kettlebell Clean and Jerk and his presentation on kettlebell and barbell juggling is a must see.

Mike Mahler: I have been into kettlebell training since 2001 and started my kettlebell training business in 2002. I taught kettlebell workshops all over the US from 2002-2008 and then decided to shift my focus to learn more about hormone optimization. While I no longer teach beginner kettlebell courses, I still love training with kettlebells and decided to shift my focus to bigger kettlebell events with more advanced material. This shift began in 2007 with the two-day workshop and subsequent DVD set: The Boys Are Back In Town. This workshop and DVD set was a huge success which lead me to my next production Collision Course in 2008. Both workshops not only furthered the dissemination of kettlebell information but showed how to enhance kettlebell training with other training systems (battling ropes, chi-kung, joint mobility, strongman training etc). Kettlebell Training In The Age Of Quarrel is my third big production and one that is very timely.

For the kettlebell training material on the DVD, I covered a variety of tips to improve your kettlebell military press, how to use kettlebells to develop explosive strength and power, and how to use kettlebells with a variety of other tools for a comprehensive training system. I also covered a section on optimizing hormones. . You are only as healthy as your hormones and this is information that everyone needs and that everyone can benefit from.Learn which hormone is the CEO of all hormones and why true hormone optimization starts with the leader

Ken Blackburn: The Importance Of Agility Training For Optimal Athletic Performance And Overall Well-being

What is agility? Agility is the ability to move effortlessly. It is the ability to change direction without slowing down, losing balance, or losing control of your body. In addition to making you a better athlete, agility makes you simply feel better overall. After all, it is not farfetched at all to say that agility and overall happiness go hand and hand. When you wake up in the morning stiff as a board it is difficult to be energetic and enthusiastic about attacking the day with zeal. The better you can move the better you will feel and when you feel better you will get more out of your life across the board. Effortless movement is critical for overall health and athleticism and is far too often overlooked by trainers and trainees alike.

Steve Cotter: How to harmonize all the individual attributes of physical training with animal based bodyweight exercises:

Are you an animal? This is not a philosophical question, it is a physiological question. You have a body and you move, so how do you wish to move it?

The study of animals is as old as man's presence on earth and as old as the combat arts. Early civilizations studied the wildlife to and some, such as the Chinese, adapted whole systems of movement based on mimicking the movements and characteristics of the predators and other aggressive animals such as the tiger, hawk, serpent, monkey, horse, eagle, bear and others.

As human being, we don't have sharp fangs and strong claws and most of us do not weigh 500 or 1,000 lbs. So we can't use all the same natural weapons in defense that the wild animals have. However, as humans we possess intellect and consciousness and the ability to understand. These animal systems teach how to use the body and the mind together to develop integrated, comprehensive movement.

In the wide range of strength and conditioning, there are many physical attributes one must learn in order to maximize ability and physical potential: strength, speed, balance, power, flexibility, mental acuity and more.

What the animal based movement systems teach us is how to harmonize all the individual attributes of physical training.

In this course you will learn how to move and be an animal, the fluidity, poise, grace and agility of a bird of prey, the tenacity, power and intention of the tiger, the raw strength of the bear and more.

Here is a list of some of the exercises you will be learning:

Tiger: exercises to strengthen the spine and the integration of upper and lower body together to develop full-body power

Monkey: light and quick, agile and mobile, here one moment and gone the next

Serpent: flexible, rotational power, connected to the ground to be strong and stable

Horse: power from the ground up, like the gallop of a stallion as the power courses through the whole body

Birds of prey: the chicken, eagle, hawk and crane all have different strengths, agility, strong talons, mobility and powerful wings, strong legs

In this course, Steve Cotter will bring you the wisdom of the ancient martial arts masters and you will move your body like an animal and train your mind with the steel focus and tenacity of a predator.

Jason Dolby: Take joint mobility to the next level with Indian Club training

Years ago, British soldiers stationed in India were so intrigued by the benefits of club swinging that they brought the ancient art home with them and introduced itto Europe. Later, in the mid 1800's, European immigrants brought the clubs to the United States, where they became part of our schools physical educationprograms as well as a staple in our military's physical readiness training. The interest in club swinging seemed to disappearin the states around 1920, due to the up rise in sports and athletic games. It is great to see the art ofthe Indian club rising again. We can all benefit from the ancient brilliancethat is....club swinging.

Mike Mahler: The Importance Of Optimizing Sex Hormones For Well Being And Vitality

Our hormone levels are just not the same as the last generations hormone levels? Hormone decline is impacting people of all ages and we must fight back as we are only as healthy as our hormones. Personally, I know what it is like to have hormones that are far from ideal and I know what it is like to have hormones in the ideal ranges and trust me there is a huge difference between the two. Once you learn how to optimize your hormones you will never want to lose the tremendous feeling of well being and vitality that comes with it.

Tired of fitness products that look for the lowest common denominator? I am and that is why The Kettlebell Training In The Age Of Quarrel DVD Course is my commitment to excellence. Now it is time for you to make a commitment to excellence to yourself

We live in a minimalist society in which people are looking for the lowest common denominator and act accordingly. We see it in movies, television shows, music, customer service, restaurants, and on and on. I do not know about you but I am fed up of it. I hate that anti-climatic feeling that comes when you look forward to something and then end up disappointed that it did not live up to your expectations. This is why I am committed to excellence with my business and life. I never want my customers to feel that terrible anti-climatic feeling with any of my products. I am prepared to apply the deliberate hard work that is necessary to produce excellent products. I do not want to meet the lowest expectations of my customers, I want to exceed the highest expectations of my customers. This is why I find the best instructors for each production. Without top-notch instructors it will be impossible to acquire the best material. We have all seen well produced fitness DVD's with poor material. On the other hand, high quality instruction with low quality production is an insult to the customer.

I have the utmost respect for my customers. Without them I would not have the great living that I have. As a result I have an obligation to people that have supported me over the years to produce not only DVD's with high quality instruction, but exceptional production. Fortunately, I have an in house production team via my brother Roger. To say Roger is committed to excellence would be the understatement of the year. He will burn the midnight oil for as long as it takes to produce the highest quality product possible. Those of you that purchased The Boys Are Back In Town Kettlebell Workshop DVD and Collision Course Workshop DVD already now this. His commitment to improving with each subsequent product shows clearly on the Age Of Quarrel DVD.

DVD Length: Over Twelve Hours

This DVD will exceed your expectations and you will not have that anti-climatic feeling that you often have with other products. If for the off chance reason you are not completely satisfied, you can send the DVD set back for a hassle free refund. However, do not even bother purchasing this DVD unless you are committed to excellence yourself. If you are a minimalist when it comes to getting the most out of your training and life then this product is not for you. If I am committed to excellence then I expect you to be committed to excellence as well. If you are committed to excellence then this DVD is a perfect fit for you. If you want to be committed to excellence and need inspiration then look no further. It is right here.

NOTE: This DVD course will be sent to you in the mail. It is not a digital download. You will however receive an email to download the bonus reports right after you place your order.

I have not even finished the "In the Age of Quarrel" Kettlebell Dvd but had to give a testimonial on the dvd. I am an IKFF certified kettlebell training so I loved seeing al ot of the exercises that I learned from Steve Cotter, Ken Blackburn, and Jason Dolby. This dvd is a must for any kettlbell lifter. This is the best information I have seen on Sport Kettlebell lifting. I also recommend this to any trainer who practices "Hardstyle" because a weak trainer is an ignorant or close-minded trainer.

Also the joint mobility and dynamic mobility drills are awesome for any martial artist of any style. This mobility training practiced on a regular basis would make an advanced martial artist much more dangerous.

I also recommend this for any personal trainer or strength coach looking to make them stand out as the best in comparison to the competition.
