Beyond Crunches Companion Video or DVD:  BEYOND CRUNCHES: Hard Science.  Hard Abs.

As Clarence explains in "The Hardest Sit-up" (article No. 47 on home page), the Janda sit-up, which is the core exercise in Pavel’s program for building "bullet-proof abs," is difficult to learn. In this much-needed video, Pavel demonstrates step-by-step how to master the Janda sit-up, with the help of a training partner or using his patented Ab Pavelizer device. See the iconoclastic and dynamic Russian in action doing the Janda sit-up, Saxon side bends, Bruce Lee’s favorite the Dragon Flag and the other unique – and very effective – torso builders described in his book. Clarence found this video very helpful. It’s a wonderful complement to Bullet-Proof Abs. The book explains the theory and the video shows the actual performance. 37 minutes. $29.95 plus $5.60 priority.

Bill Pearl/Dave Draper Seminar DVD + 30-page Conversation Booklet

This Seminar DVD was recorded in front of a live audience at the 2005 DraperOnline Bash at the World Gym in Santa Cruz, CA. Bill Pearl and Dave Draper, joined near the end by Ed Corney (article 157, Personalities), lovingly and candidly talk for 75 minutes about bodybuilding then and now, revealing truths, expelling myths and offering priceless insights. World-famous bodybuilders (see articles 27 and 118 in our Personalities category for details), Dave has been training for over 50 years and Bill for 65 plus years, they have plenty to say—their answers to questions from the audience are often surprising and always illuminating. Topics covered include their early training, goal setting, feats of strength they’ve witnessed, best lifts, the current bodybuilding scene, steroid downside, cardio training, vegetarian diet,  protein requirements, aging, training partners, favorite exercises, body fat tests, injuries, training to failure, early morning training, improvements in equipment over the years, split routines, nutrition basics, supplements, hypnosis, stretching and more. Ed Corney tells about training before and after his stroke. Added bonuses are slide shows of the Draper and Pearl physiques over the years, and a 30-page booklet, Essentials & Reflections, capturing the two in a private conversation at Pearl’s ranch in Oregon; covers some of the above topics in more depth and other topics as well—especially the importance of positive attitude and having confidence in yourself and your training. Truly an exchange of bodybuilding wisdom for the ages.

This amazing DVD, filmed on a beautiful California beach, is packed with ninety minutes of essential information on getting bigger and stronger with kettlebells. Mike Mahler, a strength coach and Senior Kettlebell Instructor, uses kettlebells as his only source of strength training. He mastered the basics of kettlebell training and wanted to take it to a higher level. He was big and strong before he made the change and he’s bigger and stronger now. Weighing 195, he can now press and snatch two 88-pound kettlebells—for reps. In the DVD, he shows you how he got there. He explains and demonstrates eight primary kettlebell exercises: Double Military Press, Double Bent Over Row, Double Floor Press, Double Front Squat, Double Windmill, Turkish Get-up, Double Swing, and Double Snatch. Taken together, these movements work the whole body. Frankly, just seeing him do these exercises with a pair of 70-pound Kettlebells is worth the price of the DVD. You don’t have to use that much weight to benefit, of course, but he shows you what’s possible and how to get there. Order your copy of this is AMAZING DVD today. Approximately 90 minutes. $39.95 + 6.60 priority shipping

Pavel strips to the waist and for 47 minutes shows and tells how his "Power to the People" system works. The demonstrations of the concepts explained in the book are both instructive and inspirational. Clarence thought the many possible variations shown of Pavel’s 2-exercise, whole-body workout was especially impressive and useful. Clarence says, "Who would have thought so much versatility could be squeezed out of the Deadlift – Pavel calls it the Health Lift – and the Side Press or Floor Press." It’s as the video jacket promises: "Power to everyone, from a burly strongman to a fashion model!" 47 minutes, $29.95 plus $5.60  priority shipping.

POWER Unlimited:  Unlimited Strength.  Unlimited Will.  Unlimited Power (a documentary on powerlifting)

A superbly written and produced documentary on powerlifting, the sport and the people. It chronicles the history of this amazing (but obscure) sport through archival footage and interviews of pioneers such as Ed Coan, Lee Moran, Kirk Karwoski, Rickey Dale Crain, Bev Francis, and others. In addition to telling about the past, it introduces the world of the future through the eyes of novices, international lifters, coaches, and rising stars, such as Pricilla Ribic, Scot Mendelson, Scot Cartwright, and many others. You'll learn about and see the first official 1000 pound Squat--and the first 1000 pound Bench Press!

Carol and I enjoyed every minute of this documentary. It's fascinating to get up-close-and-personal with famous (and not so famous) power lifters, men and women, some we've read about and others new to us. We learned way more than we expected.

This DVD is "must viewing" for anyone interested in, or curious about, the sport of powerlifting.

104 minutes, $29.95 + $6.60 shipping.

The Strongest Man in Recorded history: A Documentary on the Life of Paul Anderson—DVD

Many of you have read about the legendary Paul Anderson. Now you can see--and hear--him in action in this wonderful documentary DVD. Even though I saw Paul lift five times (as noted in article 38), the never-before-seen photos and movie footage of Paul preparing for the 1956 Olympics using homemade weights in his home and backyard, newsreel footage of his most famous competitions at home and abroad, and speaking before large audiences gave me a new appreciation of his true greatness. Paul was more than “The Strongest Man of the Century”—truly a wonder of nature. He was a wonderful human being as well. He traveled thousands of miles each year sharing his message: love of God, country, and the free-enterprise system. In 1961, he and his wife Glenda established the Paul Anderson Youth Home, which provides Christian rehabilitation for young men who would otherwise be incarcerated. This is the fantastic story of one of America’s greatest athletes--and humanitarians. 

 95 minutes, Introductory price: $39.95 plus $6.60 priority shipping  A book about his life is also available on this site.
