TACFIT Kettlebell Spetsnaz — Next Generation Kettlebell Training

(m4v version <– Right click and save to disk if you wish to download / Mac users hold control and click)

So what separates TACFIT Kettlebell Spetsnaz from all those other kettlebell programs?

Most other programs focus on working muscle and burning fat using very one- dimensional gross motor movements. That’s fine in the beginning, but it will only take you so far.

TACFIT Kettlebell Spetsnaz trains the nervous system by working with movements that increase in complexity. Pre-Recruit level begins by building attributes with gross motor movements. Each subsequent level of the program — from Recruit to Grunt to Commando — builds on that base, taxing the nervous system with increasingly complex skill sets.

What does that mean for your training?

No more workout boredom
No more injuries caused by your body breaking down from years of repetitive movements
No more plateaus

It also translates to superior results. You melt fat and build muscle at an accelerated rate. Your movements become more refined. You learn to assimilate new skills faster than ever before.

But enough from us.

We’ll let those lucky few who experienced a sneak peek of the program speak for themselves…

I am 160lbs 5’8″. I have a 40lb kettlebell. Is this a good weight to start with? Before I started Tacfit three months ago I was training with this kettlbell for a couple of months. I stopped when I started the Tacfit. Thanks for your great video. Sincerelry Ronn Franco

That would be pretty cool if you only need one Kettlebell instead of a whole set. Or maybe we have only seen one video and there is more sizes of kettlebells as part of the program. Hard to tell.

Scott,
Looks awesome! I am going away with work for a few weeks soon, keen to purchase and take my Kb with me for a change from “vanilla” TACFIT Commando – if there is such a thing!.

How much longer until the programme is released? Great results at the Worlds – no better advocate for your training regimens.

Can I use kettlebells even if I have a (slight) slipped disc in my lower back? I’ve been told not to do weights – would this fall into the same category?

Kevin Lee Dougherty October 3, 2010 at 9:59 pm

Scott, thanks on the video, of course and all the testimonies from those in the know, but not to go off kilt I’ve noticed (my trained outdoorsman eyes) that you have an affinity for trains and train tracks and my guess that being a Penn boy (PA is covered with freight train routes) that you do. In Tacfit Commando, a few of the exercise videos is adjoined by the sounds of freight trains in the background (loved it personally). And then the horticulturist/botanist/hiker in me wants to know where you film these great locations. You’re blessed with an interesting topography that is quite verdant. Enjoy yourself.

Looking a very good progressive program.

Would it be possible to substitute a dumbbell for a kettlebell, and what weight would be the best for a recruit?

Thanks,

Like Jason, I’m interested in knowing if this approach requires one or two kettlebells. Besides, I’d like to know if the program will include also recovery techniques, like the other programs. Best wishes.

This looks good. My problem with other workout modalities is that I train and make progress, but at the end of each prescribed interval I am hit with overuse injuries that set me back. And these injuries take time to heal.

Reply

Barry Harrison October 4, 2010 at 10:05 am

Blaise, I was the same when I trained with Kettlebells. Got some really good results but ended up with a shoulder and lower back injuries (muscle strains). The good thing with Tacfit is, the warm-up and recovery sessions are part of the system. That plus good technique should prevent any injuries occurring!

Hello All. I hope this finds everyone doing well. This is my first post, so a brief introduction is in order, I suppose. My name is Clark, a Firefighter currently residing and serving just outside Orlando, Fl. Though I don’t have very much time to do much more than get on, get what I need and run, I’m honored to be a part of this community. I hope my previous lack of comments and contribution can be forgiven.

Okay, I’ve been out of the loop since I finished up Commando. Kettlebell Spetsnaz? I want in. How do I get in? I was looking for the way in, download, whatever and I’m not finding it. Someone enlighten me and send me in the right direction to get this. Slowly but surely, my training has shifted almost exclusively to this paradigm. The cops and other firefighters who see me train and see me in action are amazed at what this does for me and how it prepares me. Slowly but surely, I’m changing a few other minds besides my own. I look forward to hearing from you guys and to being a more productive member of this community.

Thanks for all you do
Clark

Thank you for the great program. I just finished downloading the Spetsnaz videos and training material. The content of the program is, I’m sure top notch. One piece of constructive feedback. You and your team need to make sure your commitment to excellence transfers all the way down to the way in which you deliver the program content into your clients hands. I have a very reliable high speed internet connection and it took me several hours to download all of the video content for this program. Thanks again for the training material. I’m looking forward to getting started.

Spetznaz KB is my favorite KB program, after just two weeks. I love kettlebells, and have played with them for seven years now, and own two dozen different programs. None of them match my needs physically and psychologically like Spetznaz. I want fitness, health, appearance, and martial arts function. All of these are terrifically addressed. In addition, my YOGA has improved. Spooky. Less DOMS than with any other method (although I still have to stretch!). Alone or in combination with COMMANDO I think I’ve found the base of a life-long practice. The Six Degrees of Freedom rock out!

I’m 5′-6″, 160 lbs. Have two more cycles (8days) left in Commando Level 3, then plan to begin Kettlebell Spetsnaz. I can’t find anything about selecting the appropriate weight to start with. I have a couple of ten pounders, but they seem a little light. I have nothing to prove and don’t want to strain anything. Would 10 kg or so be a good weight?

Thanks

Reply

Carr Baldwin October 24, 2010 at 11:55 am

I’m sure that Scott has more important things to do than monitor this blog, but can anyone help me in how to go about determining what weight kettlebell I should start with? I want to use one heavy enough to benefit and not so heavy I strain something. Only four days left on Commando Level 3. Can’t say enough about how much improvement I’ve seen in muscle tone, balance and flexibility.

Thanks

Reply

admin October 25, 2010 at 5:42 am

Carr,

Start light, because the nature of TACFIT focuses on gradually increasing the complexity of the skills rather than on heavier weight. If you’re new to weight lifting, then 8KG for women and 12kg for men; and if you’re a more experienced lifter, still start light with 12kg for women and 16kg for men. You’ll be glad that you started this light, so you don’t have to figure out how to modify the TACFIT Kettlebell Spetsnaz program with a kettlebell too heavy for you to complete it.

Scott Sonnon

Scott,
Today was day #4 with the KB program. I am 68 and retired after 25 years full contact karate. I spent about 5 years with kettle bells working with another trainer. I am really glad that I acted on my decision to obtain TACFIT Kettlebell Spetsnaz. You got my attention with the R O P E series and the Commando program. I had been integrating the ROPE program with KB’s with good success. However, I must say that your new KB program is great for me. I have started at Pre-Recruit level because I see the value of emphasis on what I call full body movement. I had been concentrating on swings and TGUs even though I was having difficulty obtaining a full squat. That is still an issue but I am practicing and using your warm up and cool down movements to help work out some flexibility issues especially in my knees. I may stay at Pre-recruit for a while. At least I’ll stay there until I have gained additional mobility in my knees. When I get those issues worked out and perfected the form I will advance.
Thanks for the program. You have given me an added dimension that I was not getting before. In fact, from Day 1 your program clearly pointed out some personal physical limitations that must be addressed before real progress can be made. THANKS AGAIN

Scott,

I would like to commend you on a fine programme. However, what is letting you down is your back end logistics and support.

I have now submitted 5 x support requests over the last 2 weeks and have not had any response. I have also written 2 emails directly to your team, again without response.

I purchased the mass assault programme together with the ketllebell training programme but have not been provided with access (purchased 8th Oct). to the mass assault programme.

Achieving any mission is one thing, but without the right support you will not succeed.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,
David Scott

This is actually a response to the E-mail referencing Dr. Winter’s comments on “proof”. I am now 76 years old and purchased Tacfit Commando about three years ago. I am willing to offer myself as proof of the effectiveness of the program. I am currently doing Command, level two. I alternate between the Tacfit program and the Kettlebell program. I am only 5′ 6″, 160 lbs and wouldn’t think anyone would consider me a physical threat, but on Sunday, one of the guys at church said he was going to volunteer me for the Seals, since they don’t have any age limit. I appreciate the compliment, but am not naive enough to think I could complete the Seal training, but I am probably in better shape than a lot of the guys who the start the program. In closing, I wholeheartedly recommend the Rmax programs to anyone who is serious about improving the physical condition.
