Good Kettlebell DVDs?

I was looking at The Art of Strength, and also the ones By Jason Brown. Anyone have any info? I like the follow along aspect of The Art of Strength, but I also need to have some in depth technique pointers, which Jason has provided a lot of. (I have Pavel's videos and also Mike Mahlers, but am loking for something more in dept on technique and also how to design workouts).

Thanks,
Jason

Hey Jason,

My DVDs aren't designed with an absolute beginner in mind. We assume that the viewer knows the basics, Snatches, Cleans, Swings ... If you even need advice on technique just ask.

The Art of Strength is great; I don't know of many people who can do the full workout + the bonus round without extra rest. It's one of the first of its kind. Not for beginners, though...it is assumed the user knows how to do the lifts (none of which are terribly technical, except perhaps for the snatch).

I don't know much about Jason Brown's dvds.

I really don't think you can go wrong, OR find a better bargain than the 5 DVD set of Steve Cotter's Encyclopedia of Kettlebell Lifting. Here it is on eBay:

Here's a thread where I reviewed it:

Does the encyclopedia have workouts on it or just exercises? I am pretty confused about proper form, when you see Pavel do it, it looks different than say Kotter doing it(swings for example, I have full contact videos). I want something that is going to tell me how to do it right so I don't jack myself up, and maybe to tell me what I am striving for when doing a particular lift. But I also need some programs to follow.

Thanks, Jason

Hey Jason,

Since you feel you need instruction along with some solid programs pick up Pavel's "Enter The Kettlebell."

Pavel has several programs in the book that are excellent staring points and some that are tough regardless of where you are in kettlebell training. The DVD has the tips you'll need.

You can find them both here:

If you have any questions just let me know.

"Does the encyclopedia have workouts on it or just exercises? I am pretty confused about proper form, when you see Pavel do it, it looks different than say Kotter doing it(swings for example, I have full contact videos)."

there is really no one true way..... even people taught the same technique will perform it differently....

What is a good place to buy a "starter set" for kettlebells? I have never had experience with them and I would like to use them for my workouts. Thank you for your help.
