Discover The Ground Breaking Kettlebell Program That Was Born Behind The Iron Curtain, Refined With Modern Sport Science, And Tested In The Field By Athletes, Special Operations Personnel And Regular Folks — You Too Can Craft A Lean & Sleek Muscularity While Driving Your Performance & Health To New Heights
How Going Behind The Iron Curtain Opened My Eyes To Our Weakness
When I left for Russia, I was a lot like you. I was thirsty for the truth about effective training. I was tired of gimmicks and “flavour of the month” fat loss & muscle building scams. I crossed an ocean in search of the TIME-TESTED methods old school Eastern athletes had been using for generations, to not only build awe-inspiring physiques but to out-perform their Western counterparts at every turn.
In the West, it seemed like we were constantly focused on tools and tricks. The latest trend proved irresistible as it pulled us off track from our performance and our physique goals. $10,000 machines were shiny distractions from real progress.
What I discovered behind the Iron Curtain changed everything. I found methods that would propel me, my athletes and eventually my physique clients directly to their goals — both rapidly and sustainably — using a single tool that was as simple and raw as it was effective.
Almost unknown back in those days, the simple kettlebell has exploded in popularity here in the West. But most people — even well educated coaches — still arenʼt using it to itʼs full potential.
“Most programs out there focus only on working muscle and burning fat”
Unfortunately, when it comes to building a great physique and ensuring optimal performance in your sport or on the job, most programs out there focus only on working muscle and burning fat. And as a result, program designs are usually limited to one-dimensional gross motor movements. Make no mistake. Conventional kettlebell exercises are tough. And you FEEL like youʼre getting a great workout. But thereʼs a glass ceiling to what youʼre able to accomplish with brute force alone.
If youʼve ever worked with my TACFIT Kettlebell Spetsnaz programs, youʼll know that wonʼt happen with my material.
When in Russia, I immediately recognized how to apply the methods I was learning from the countryʼs top sport scientists and coaches to this timeless tool. The training system I came up with was so powerful that I even ended up coaching their Spetsnaz coaches and personnel.
At the time, having a foreigner in that role was unheard of — and more than a little controversial. The fact that they even allowed it spoke volumes about the powerful results I was getting with my approach.
Kettlebell training is often all show and no GO...
Now that kettlebells are popular in the West, I see a lot of shiny penny programs that make big promises but have no substance. After all, the kettlebell is only a tool. Itʼs a very effective weapon to have in your arsenal, but garbage in will always lead to garbage out.
And thatʼs why I want to share what Iʼve learned about kettlebells over my decades of study, coaching and experimentation. Iʼve dredged up the best that traditional kettlebell training has to offer — and that well is deep. But I've also bypassed rote adherence to tradition by integrating the no-nonsense lessons of cutting edge Eastern sport science.
The Solution? Use tactical and functional kettlebell training methods
Because Iʼve put in the time, you donʼt have to. By following the programs Iʼve developed for my special operations clients and law enforcement units, you can expect a wide array of benefits, including…
- accelerated fat loss
- lean and sleek muscular development
- functional carryover into your sport or occupation
- better coordination and timing in all physical tasks
- increased adherence to your exercise program
- and even a ramped up metabolism
Part Of The Secret — Variety And Progression
Itʼs important that your training be infused with variety and progression. Unfortunately, thatʼs a rarity in most kettlebell programs.
If you stick to those “other” programs, youʼll eventually either get bored and give up, your body will begin to break down from injury and overuse, or youʼll reach an unbreakable plateau in your progress. Thatʼs because your focus on muscle building and fat loss ignores the most crucial element in your training — your nervous system.
Sophisticated Programming Will Turbo Charge Your Nervous System
And that truly is the key. The nervous system drives everything. If you donʼt challenge, stimulate and develop it, your progress will stop dead in the water.
The key to optimizing your workouts and fully stimulating your nervous system for maximum physical development is the inclusion of exercise sophistication.
Essentially, it boils down to starting with a simple movement and adding small pieces of complexity only when your nervous system is ready to take on the next challenge. Incrementally stimulating the nervous system without blowing a fuse by adding too much motor complexity too quickly.
You first learn to apply your maximum effort to a basic movement. And then — when youʼre ready — you move on to the next level and do the same. Motor programming is an admittedly complicated subject. But you DONʼT EVEN HAVE TO THINK ABOUT IT. Iʼve taken care of the entire process for you in TACFIT Kettlebell Spetsnaz. Just follow the step by step progression and youʼll have everything you need to take that next big leap in your training.
Whether youʼre an athlete, a soldier, a police officer or just a regular guy or gal who wants to look and feel great, this kettlebell program is perfect for you. If you put in the effort, you can expect that fat to drip off your body as you reshape a lean and sleek muscularity. Youʼll notice your movements becoming more refined as your timing and coordination sharpens. And youʼll even notice that picking up new skills in other areas, such as sports or on the job, will become easier as your nervous system begins to function at entirely new levels.

Who Dares Wins,
Chief Operations Officer
Oh, by the way, if you have any questions, we’ve probably already answered them here:
- Q. Iʼve never used kettlebells, is this program still for me?
- Yes, if you've never used kettlebells this is the perfect place to begin, because the Level 1 skills are so simple that you can learn them very quickly.
- Q. What kind of kettlebell do I need for this program?
- If you've never purchased a kettlebell before, you could use any style, but if you're going to invest in a piece of equipment, start with a "competition" or "professional grade" bell that can be used in kettlebell sport. This pro-grade style uses biomechanic ratios optimized for ergonomic efficiency, rather than minimal manufacturing overhead.
- Q. What weight kettlebell do I need?
- 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.
- Q. Is the program appropriate for women?
Kettlebells are gender-neutral. In fact, women are often learning them faster than some men because we males often let ego —and super-heavy weights — get in the way of learning technique. Women tend to understand straight away that if they actually read, watch and practice the directions, they'll develop much more rapidly than their male counterparts who would throw away the user manual in favor of diving into the deep end too fast, too soon.
The only adjustment which women will need to make involves shifting the "racked" position of the kettlebell slightly externally rotated to the side to avoid excessive breast discomfort. Fortunately, the tendency for women to have wider pelvic girdles makes it easier to hold the elbow-to-illiac crest position, so it balances out.
(Caveat: pregnant women should only ever begin a new exercise program under the direct supervision of their health care professional.)
- Q. Is this program too hard for regular people?
The system includes 4 levels (Pre-Recruit for those who are new to fitness, Recruit for those who have a couple missions notched on their belts, Grunt for those seasoned enough to go for the gusto, and Commando for those individuals who have the perfect combination of character flaws to want to challenge themselves mercilessly.) So, there's a place for everyone in TACFIT.
But this isn't static. Everyone recovers at different speeds and in different areas faster than others. So, one day you may feel froggy and up for a big leap; and on another day, a little sluggish but needing to knock off the dust and get some circulation in those bones. You can dial it up or down even within a session using the TACFIT trademarked 4 levels of "simple sophistication."
Even if you need an extra day off, don't let your muscles lie to you that resting would be best for your body. The specialized mobility and compensation programs will help lubricate and send desperately needed nutrition throughout your body to help you fully restore to a pain and injury free, energized body.
- Q. I'm overweight and sedentary, can I still do this program?
Of course! Just make sure that if you're overweight and sedentary, you invest in yourself and get a physical check-up with your doctor to get approved for this specific program. Take the time to study and practice the mobility warmup and compensation cooldown programs. They help you prepare for intense work. Follow the directions in the manual for keeping the proper and safe levels of technique, effort and discomfort.
As mentioned above, the level 1 techniques allow you to start out even if you've been pushing papers for a long time. But take the time to give yourself extra days of recovery if you're feeling you need it. Use common sense, and if you feel that you don't know how to gauge yourself correctly, then ask your doc.
- Q. How long is this program?
- There's an 8 minute warmup and 8 minute cooldown and 4 rounds of the 4 minute workout with 1 minute rest in between for a total of 35 minutes.
- Q. Can I incorporate this with other exercise programs?
- Yes, here's an article to help you: http://www.tacfitcommando.com/blog/how-to-integrate-kettlebells-with-tacfit-commando
- Q. How does this fit with TACFIT Commando?
- We've already got that answered for you! http://www.tacfitcommando.com/blog/how-to-integrate-kettlebells-with-tacfit-commando
- Q. I have a skinny figure. Would TACFIT be able to help me gain muscle mass or is it more suitable for people who want to cut body fat and get lean?
- TACFIT Kettlebell Spetsnaz puts on the muscle fast.
- Q. I am a 59 year old man and it seems to me that this training is just geared for the young ones. Does this program work for older people?
As we age, resistance training becomes more important to keep our bones healthy. External resistance, such as with the kettlebell, stimulates bone growth and offsets osteoporosis. Additionally, as we age we also need to focus more increasing pain-free mobility and increased range of motion which diminishes from overuse, misuse and disuse.
So, since aging is a process of losing complexity, the 4 complexity levels signature throughout the TACFIT workouts focuses on that increasing complexity. Lastly, the pre-incorporated mobility warmup and compensation cooldown programs dedicate you to remaining pain and injury free and maximizing your recovery from resistance training and the toils of daily life.
- Q. Will this help me get rid of the pudge around my midsection.
- Spot reducing fat is a myth, but fortunately, you cannot stop TACFIT from melting fat off your entire body, especially your midsection!
- Q. Is this suitable for someone with limited flexibility?
- Since all of the TACFIT workouts concentrate on increasing flexibility and strength simultaneously, you'll improve your essential flexibility just by following the prescribed progression through the 4 levels of the TACFIT workouts.
- Q. How is this similar/different from other kettlebell programs, like RKC or kettlebell sport?
There are two dominate schools of kettlebell lifting: one for strength and power, the other for endurance and efficiency. However, these are only 2 of the many approaches to kettlebell lifting in Russia. They're just tools in the toolbox.
TACFIT offers you additional tools, through concentrating on "increasing sophistication" through simple steps. Not only does this variety of techniques keep you from boredom and over-training, but it also focuses on what neuroscience and biomechanics has come to understand in recent years: your growth and development depends upon challenging movements. Not only will you get all of the conventional physique results of increased muscle and decreased fat, but more importantly you will feel as good as you look and be as strong as you feel.
- Q. Are speed and reps more important or is perfect form more important?
Slow is smooth, smooth is fast. That's the motto that martial artists have understood for millennia. Physique and fitness benefits come from improving technique. The more that you better your form, the faster you gain muscle, burn fat and move with power and grace. Speed is a product of technique, so you never have to "try" and lift faster; you only need to improve your technique and the total time of the actual repetition as a result, decreases.
The same with number of reps: as you improve technique, the time taken for one rep decreases, resulting in more total repetitions over the set. This is the secret that masterful martial artists keep hidden in plain sight, because ego convinces people to try and lift heavier and faster and more. This ego only results in poor technique done heavier, faster, and more often. Focusing on technique results looks like it's slow, but it's the tortoise over the hare: the sure, safe path to victory in your fitness and life.
- Q. Would a person need to do cardio training after these workouts or are they good enough in a cardiovascular way?
- Cardio is one of the great by-products of the TACFIT programming arsenal.
