Dragon Door: Kettlebells from the Ground Up
Can one exercise sequence do it all? Can one exercise provide insight into how you move? Could one exercise be the key to achieving a balanced and strong body? Well, according to the two of the most highly regarded “Engineers of Movement Mastery”, Gray Cook and Brett Jones, the answer is a resounding Yes! It would be the revered Turkish Get-Up.
The old time strongmen used the Get-Up as an “entrance exam” requiring a 100-pound Get-Up on each side before beginning any other training. And today the Get-Up represents an opportunity for everyone to regain the “beautiful strength” and symmetry that our so-called fitness routines should bring us—but invariably don’t!
And as you would expect of these Masters of Movement Engineering, they don’t just stop at showing you how to perform the exercise. Discover why the Turkish Get-Up is simultaneously a profound and broad-ranging assessment tool, a tremendously effective corrective strategy and a formidable workout where the sky’s the limit for athletic accomplishment.

Brett Jones, Dr. Mark Cheng, and Jeff O’Connor guide you through mastering the Get-Up and achieving the ultimate goal of Kalos Sthenos (Beautiful Strength).
A strong correlation exists between the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) and the Get-Up; the advanced corrections demonstrated in this DVD will help clean up your asymmetries and improve many of your movement patterns.
Kettlebell Rehab: Hardstyle Methods in Corrective Exercise
Thanks to the efforts of Pavel Tsatsouline and other former Eastern Bloc athletes and trainers, the Russian kettlebell has proven to be a solid fixture on the fitness scene. However, few fully appreciate the rehabilitative potential of this unique device. While some trainers are eager to “pile fitness on dysfunction” or simply hope to train around their client’s neuromuscular imbalances, Tsatsouline has partnered with Gray Cook’s Functional Movement Systems™ (FMS) to create a system that addresses the need for rehabilitative and pre-habilitative exercise. This video will integrate FMS concepts with specific kettlebell exercises so you can help your clients regain mobility and functionality.

Prehab/Rehab 101, The Groundwork Progressions DVD
In this video workshop, Mark Cheng covers the developmental positions from lying in periscope to the sphinx position, crawling, tall-kneeling and half-kneeling. In each position, he offers drills, and uses his three assistants to demonstrate the positions and drills while Mark makes suggestions to fine-tune each movement.
If you’re able to master the inventory of movement that your sport or activities require, you’ll be able to do more with your body without increasing the risk of injury.
That’s what the progressions in Prehab-Rehab 101 will help you achieve. They’ll help you or your clients master a rich inventory of movement that will raise the body’s ability to handle athletic demands without compromise or increased risk of injury.
Whether you’re a professional basketball player, a fighter, a Crossfitter, a P90Xer, a high school athlete, someone coming back from an injury, or someone trying to get back into shape, these progressions will help shore up the weak links in your kinetic chain, and help you move better and more powerfully.

I’m proud to announce that thanks to the help of Sifu Steven Resell, I was able to find a way to make sure that the new v2.0 design was printed on quality apparel and available for shipping to all.
Whether you’re looking for:
