No ​previous ​kettlebell ​experience ​is ​required. ​No ​matter ​ what ​your ​goals ​are, ​we ​strongly ​urge ​you ​to ​take ​this Course. ​On ​one ​end ​of ​the ​spectrum, ​subtleties ​taught ​in ​this  ​Course ​have ​been ​instrumental ​in ​helping ​Donnie ​Thompson ​make ​ a ​breakthrough ​in ​strength ​while ​making ​back ​problems ​a ​thing ​ of ​the ​past—and ​eventually ​breaking ​the ​3,000 ​pound ​world ​ superheavyweight ​powerlifting ​total ​record. ​On ​the ​other ​end ​is  ​Tracy ​Reifkind, ​who ​lost ​over ​100 ​pounds ​in ​less ​than ​a ​ year.


  • ​Kettlebell ​training ​safety ​procedures.
  • ​Essential ​joint ​mobility ​exercises.
  • ​Sophisticated ​breathing ​techniques ​for ​strength, ​back ​safety, ​endurance, ​and ​reducing ​the ​stress ​level.
  • ​“Hip-centric” ​(McGill) ​movement, ​a ​must ​for ​strength ​and ​back ​health.
  • ​Strength ​Stretching™ ​principles ​and ​key ​exercises ​which ​ enable ​greater ​expression ​of ​strength ​while ​dramatically ​ reducing ​the ​back, ​hip, ​and ​knee ​stress.
  • ​“Lat-centric” ​shoulder ​mechanics ​which ​protect ​the ​shoulder ​while ​significantly ​increasing ​strength.
  • ​The ​most ​“functional” ​exercise—the ​deadlift.
  • ​A ​powerful ​drill ​for ​strengthening ​the ​feet ​and ​the ​ ankles ​and ​injury ​proofing ​the ​hamstrings—the ​one-leg ​deadlift.

  • ​What ​GPP ​really ​is ​and ​how ​to ​program ​it. ​ Misunderstanding ​of ​general ​physical ​preparation, ​prevalent ​in ​ the ​West, ​even ​among ​coaches, ​prevents ​one ​from ​reaching ​his ​ or ​her ​athletic ​potential ​and ​predisposes ​him ​or ​her ​to ​ injuries.
  • ​The ​principles ​of ​effective ​program ​design ​refined ​and ​condensed ​from ​the ​Russian ​methodology.
  • ​A ​number ​of ​foolproof ​program ​design ​tools ​and ​sample ​programs ​for ​a ​variety ​of ​training ​goals.
