A Sneak Peek at the New Project

Written on June 30, 2009 at 5:54 am, by Eric Cressey

As many of you probably already know, I flew out to Indianapolis on Friday night to spend the weekend shooting a new DVD with Bill Hartman and Mike Robertson.  Suffice it to say that we are all pleased with how it turned out and excited for the release.  Basically, here’s what you’re looking at…

  • 27 dynamic SELF-assessments (meaning that you can do them yourself – no partner needed)
  • A Full-on Static Assessment Guide
  • Approximately 78 corrective exercises for improving mobility and stability – based entirely on the results of the aforementioned assessments.  In other words, you assess, and then you are pointed in a specific direction to correct these issues.  You’ll learn how to integrate some of the exercises from Magnificent Mobility and Inside-Out in comprehensive progressions – plus loads of new drills along the way.
  • A Written Collection of Warm-ups specific to certain athletic populations
  • A Complete Guide to Self-Soft Tissue Work – and a rationale for it
  • A Comprehensive Static Stretching Guide

You know the project is legit because of this picture of Lance, our demonstrator.

First, he’s exhausted, which means that there are loads of exercises.  Second, he actually ended up with pit stains from the experience, so these aren’t just foo-foo exercises; they take things up a notch at the “top” of each progression (particularly if you do them for six hours, as Lance did on Saturday).  Third, you just have to love a DVD set that uses a guy with deadlifting bruises on his shins as the model.  Talk about attitude!

For more on the weekend, check out Lance’s Blog.

Needless to say, we’re stoked about this.  There isn’t a definitive time-table on the product’s release, but you can be the first to find out about it by subscribing to my newsletter through the opt-in box on the right sidebar of this page.

    Eric, I am frustrated by other training DVDs I have bought that are just all one long track (probably not the right term). In other words, if you want to look at a particular exercise or group of exercises, you have to wade through the whole DVD to find it. Will your DVD have an index and a way to jump directly to particular sections?

  • Get this out ASAP. Sounds like a fantastic resource.

  • 1. when will it be out
    2. will it only be available through EC.com or thru perform better as well
    3. available with PDF format handouts

    Eric,
    This sounds great. I am very happy with the results of the other products I have from you guys; Magnificent Mobility, Maximum Strength, Inside out and most recently, post surgery, Bullet Proof Knees. I wish I had BPK before I needed the knee scoped.
    Any discounts for loyal followers on the production?

    Eric,
    I have to second (or third) most of what has been said already. I have Maximum Strength and MagMob – both great and very useful products.

    Super excited for the new info/product.

    A good DVD index goes a long way for usability.

    PDF included with DVD would be awesome.

    Discounts for repeat customers would be nice.

  • Eric, you are the man. Keep fighting the good fight, comrade!

  • Susan – Yes, it will be formatted so that you can skip directly to the exercises of choice.

    Carlos – I would expect it to be about 6-8 weeks (hopefully sooner). Yes, it will have PDF handouts. I would expect it to be available through PB, although they would need to approve it and go through the process of making it available online and in the catalog, which takes some time.

    I can’t wait for this product! Another masterpiece by cressey and robertson!
