    Default So what's on my dvd, anyway?

    It's been over a year now that I made my DVD, and so I re-watched it just yesterday. I was surprised with the amount of content and details packed into it myself!

    Here's what you can expect to get:
    A basic joint mobility warm-up: A heel-to-jaw warm-up to identify your weak links.
    The purpose of joint mobility is to prepare your joints and enhance your proprioceptive map just prior to loading your body (and joints). The focus is on creating space in every joint to create strength & mobility without threat. Very clear cues allow you to focus on the specific target to uncover & correct movement pattern deficiencies that may be causing pain & strength plateaus.

    Kettlebell Technique, basics & their variations:
    2-Hand Swing- How focus on the deadlift (NOT the squat) can instantly improve your swing
    Clean- How knowing where to pull & punch through the bell handle can keep the bell from beating & bruising you
    Military Press- Using the in-line kneeling lunge & contra-lateral presses to connect the upper & lower body for a stronger, more stable press
    Clean Variations- fun with the bottoms-up clean & ball-catch clean
    Press variations- using the clean as a base for bottoms-up pressing & ball-catch pressing
    Snatch- Why the clean translates to having a solid snatch
    Get-up- Lunge AND Overhead styles for learning the valuable skill of moving from the ground to standing. Plus THE shoulder drill to understand its position for shoulder mobility & stability throughout the get-up
    Front Squat- How hip & knee bone rhythms are the secret to a smooth, strong front squat
    Overhead Squat- How to corkscrew under the bell to improve depth & lower body mobility
    Kickstand Lunge- A unique drill for heavy & safe one-leg kettlebell work
    Windmill- Practicing a simple progression to better understand windmill mechanics
    2-Hands Anyhow- To get more variety from the Windmill & coordinate the body better
    Bear Crawl- An unexpected ab drill & how to do it without tipping the kettlebells & falling or hurting your wrists
    Renegade Row- A fun & challenging ab drill that you don't have to lie down for!
    One-legged Deadlift- Why this drill is better than any other stability drill to enhance proprioception & balance

    Putting it all Together: Combining the Windmill & Get-up for the ultimate Kettlebell Warm-up
    Workout #1-Linking drills together for a fun workout that you don't have to keep checking the clock to make sure you're getting in enough work!
    Workout #2- Using double bell work to combine the Bear Crawl, Renegade Row, & Kickstand Lunge

    Abbreviated Joint Mobility Cool-Down: A quick cool-down, including the often neglected but ever important eye mobility, to do after any workout or even throughout the day to re-energize yourself!

    Comrades, I'm just a few minutes into Sara Cheatham's DVD, and I've already found one movement that unlocks something for me, a hip movement in the warmup I've never tried quite that way with those precise instructions before, and things from my hip through my shoulders and up into my neck have let go in a way they haven't in a long time. (We should mention that, given my ability to do a variety of splits, my hip mobility isn't something I've really ever considered a problem.)

    I always consider my DVD purchases by comparing what a visit with my doctor, physical therapist, or a personal trainer would cost me. The DVD, even if it gives me only one gem like this, is worth the price.

    I wish I could recommend the entire DVD - but I haven't made it past the warmup yet! I'm sure the rest is fantastic and am looking forward to it.

    I got this DVD when it came out. Very quality stuff and takes you through everything very clearly. The main thing I like about it is that the instruction is very precise. I am terribly ADD, and if something starts to wander around, so does my mind. Not a worry with this DVD. I definitely cleaned up some of my issues from watching it. I think the windmill progression is the best explanation I've ever seen. My only problem is that I misplaced the daggone thing! Probably in the Resilient or ETK case. Great DVD. I highly recommend it. -JAG
