Hello everyone.  I hope all of you had a good Thanksgiving weekend and have made sure to take time to reflect on all the things you have to be thankful for.  I sure did.

This blog is one of four reviews I will be doing of all 4 DVD’s that were just put out by Mark and Tracy Reifkind and David Whitley.  You would think naturally I would first review my mentor and long time coach Master RKC David Whitely, but actually I started with the DVD that I thought would help me to work on one of my weaknesses.  My shoulder stability and strength.

So naturally I began with Lats, the Super Muscles by Master RKC, Mark Reifkind.  Mark is extremely knowledgeable about injuries (he has had them), anatomy of the muscles and how they coordinate with each other, and really helped to explain to me how the Lats are a bridge between the upper and lower body.

His drills that he demonstrates within the DVD will help develop anyone’s kettlebell exercise technique.  The drills alone helped to improve my swing, ESPECIALLY my clean (weak point), and my press.  I will continue to revisit these drills to make sure that I am using my lats properly in my lifts.  They will be especially helpful in my training for RKC Level II (pull up, half bodyweight press and etc).

I truly believe that there are individuals out there that have a weak press or even a painful press that would greatly benefit from this DVD.  Besides for $29.95 it is a steal and should be in all RKC/HKC’s library collection.
