10/10 The long wait was worth it
 
By AdamMatzRKC / Minneapolis, MN

I just bought this DVD yesterday at the RKC course and it's great. Pavel first introduced me to loaded stretching at a seminar in 2003 and ever since I've been hoping that he would include it in a book or video. Well, the wait's over. Worth every penny.

 
10/10 Instant Results
 
By Carl Sipes, RKC / Washington, IL, US

This is definitely different that any other type of stretching I've done. The application is everything. I followed the protocol on the single hip stretch and was able to perform a solid pistol on the leg that normally gives me trouble. I would highly recommend this DVD to anyone that wants an instant increase in strength.

 
10/10 If the devil's in the details, meet this one!
 
By Ken Harper / Portland, OR

I had read reviews of Pavel's stretching seminars and have RIS, FR, SJ, F&L, and Resilience, so I was curious what would be new: 20 minutes later, I met muscles I never knew existed before.

Each of the exercises is explained succinctly, but with attention to the small details that make huge differences in the effects I felt. For instance, in doing the quad bridge stretch, I was not surprised that, as Pavel instructed, turning the legs in one direction would produce one effect, whereas turning them a different direction worked a different set of muscles. What did surprise me was how great an effect those small details could have.

If you judge fighters pound for pound, then minute by minute, Loaded Stretching is one of the most cost-effective products Pavel has produced.

10/10 Applicable with a capital A++!!
 
By Dean jolly / New Zealand

With Loaded Stretching Pavel holds your attention with a very clear , concise and to the point teaching application.
A well structured program that has you receiving solutions before you finish a question.
As for applying the exercises - they DO load the muscles up like tightly wound springs and felt instant results with such controlled, powerful release unleashed on my workout.
A high quality look complements such a fine work of teaching.

 
9/10 "it's gonna hurt, deal with it"
 
By powerlifter54 / under the bar

I rate this a 9 out of 10 because as a Powerlifter I liked the Strength Stretching DVD slightly better. Still, the high end concept of "controlled strain", when applied to various movements, have demonstrated ability to improve sport performance in the short and long run and can be used by everyone. The loaded hip stretch using a box, the loaded russian twist, the loaded RKC clean stretch, and the KB loaded tricep stretch are very powerfull tools that I have put in my bag of tricks. The loaded RKC clean stretch has been a real blessing to my football and powerlifting ravaged shoulders.There is a lot more here too for every athlete. The production is well done. John does need a tan, though. Recommended.

 
10/10 Instant Results
 
By Tom Gelveles / Brightwaters, NY

The dvd presents thought provoking material concerning preloading muscles prior to performance of a lift. I immediately began to practise a few of the stretches prior to my squats, deadlifts and overhead presses with spectacular results. The performance of each lift was enhanced significantly along with an increase of control. I wish Pavel was in our country years ago to re-introduce strength training to america,

 
10/10 A Revolutionary strength concept that is applicable for any Athlete
 
By J. Sushnyk / Canada

I came across this dvd a couple years ago on a movie-rental-by-mail website. Always intrigued by new ideas I rented it and am glad to say that other then Pumping Iron, it was probably the most instrumental in shaping my thinking towards strength training and recovery. Back then I didn?t know much about kettlebells, dragon door or even Pavel, but Loaded Stretching opened my eyes to a new world of thought when it comes to elite training. A definite plus for anyone, athlete or not, with the drive to build a better you.

 
10/10 Excellent and unique
 
By Mark Orsag / Omaha, NE, USA

Bought this DVD a couple of weeks ago.Very different and surprising series of techniques. Definitely advanced-- I was able to pop into full extension right away on most of the stretches (I'm a pretty advanced rock climber), but I am still working on the one for the quads (very challenging and kind of humiliating). The Skin the Cat technique isn't easy either at first either. You can really feel the extra "space" and fluidity/connectivity in the muscles, neural pathways, and joints that these stretches create; I think that is where the extra power (which is real) comes from I think... has definitely allowed me to break through several strength plateaus already. I'm eager to see what the longer term results are going to be. If you really load up the kettlebell weight (with caution) on the Russian Twist, some amazing things are going to start happening to your spine, lower back and hips... If you are already pretty flexible, you can do that stretch w/o the hold down from a partner on the knees (more practical and leads to greater dynamism IMHO)...

 
10/10 Exceptional Supplemental Technique
 
By Scott / Tampa, FL

Loaded stretching has certainly improved my strength. The first day I incorporated these techniques I saw optimization in my exercises. Progressively(like all training should be) I have seen expedited advancements in my strength, control, and flexibility.

 
10/10 Striking Power
 
By Taikei Matsushita RKCII / Tokyo Japan

I implemented one or two stretches before kicking and punching activity.

I did a round house kick routine for one set without doing this stretch.
Before the second set, I used one of the stretching work, but revised it a little to fit in an environment without necessary equipment.
First shot of second set round house kick, it went hard and the striking pad smached into my partner's face.

 
9/10 Powerful feeling pistols and deadlifts after this tutorial
 
By Will Williams Senior RKC / Suburban Philadelphia

Loaded Stretching offers the 'grind' series a significant boost, as repetitions in the pistol, deadlift, bench press, and military press undoubtedly blossom after applying the pre-lift stretching techniques. Tensing your abs and glutes will never feel the same.

 
10/10 Excellent Training Tool
 
By RK / Oak Park, IL USA

I used to practice martial arts (I always thought it made more sense than following little white balls around a lawn), but then, with the information age, I became sedentary for many years. Recently I began to get back in shape, and discovered Pavel's training methods.

This DVD was a little rigorous for my current physical condition, but I'll be there soon enough. The point Pavel makes in this program is that stretching makes you strong - this is a program for the development of core & joint strength that I would recommend to anyone.

The quality of the recording and teaching are worth the price alone, and the benefits from the practice cannot be measured in dollar value. I will be purchasing many more training programs from Dragon Door.

 
10/10 So Simple
 
By Eric / Columbia, SC USA

To the point, effective material.
Perfect prep for any lift or strength activity.

 
10/10 Passive stretches for more strength
 
By Jason / Richmond, VA

Yes, passive stretches. For each bodypart. For more strength.

Pavel provides guidelines, when to do each one, what to watch out for, etc.

Short, sweet, to the point: no fluff whatsoever.

And Jack is right: John does need a tan. ;)

 
4/10 load stretching
 
By an unsatisfied customer / mosul, Iraq

The information on this DVD was great. It was very interesting and useful information. The one problem that I came across is that some of the stretches need a partner. I wish that I had known that before I bought the disc.

 
10/10 Informative
 
By emby / Maidstone, Kent, UK

Good Dvd, Informative and the stretches do work.

 
10/10 RTK plus Loaded Stretching = Success!
 
By matt / Mt. Pleasant SC

I have recently revisited the teaching of loading stretching by Pavel and it has proved to increase power and strength during the press cycle of the Return of the Kettlebell workout. If you need just a little more power in presses, squats, push/pull movements, buy this DVD and find the hidden potential within!

 
8/10 ls works!
 
By terry / southwest

i purchased loaded stretching and used it one day before a 2 mile run and during the run i felt a boost of energy so the next day i repeated the above experiment with the same impressive results it has many applications the above is just one i use it everyday now thanks

 
7/10 Content awesome; Delivery fair
 
By Norm Elliott / Pittsburgh, PA

I liked the content but the delivery was a bit hard to follow. I would suggest working on a better delivery format. Love the stuff Pavel is producing and would still highly recommend.

 
9/10 Loaded lats for smooth pull ups!
 
By Gregory W / Portland, USA



I am a pull up fan and got this DVD to help with
my max. I was very pleased to find that the loaded lats make the first 10 seem like I have "super powers" ! I am working back up to 20 reps, I did 19 today. A nice method to learn.
