R Carbello (Birmingham, AL) - September 22nd 2010
Coach Rippetoe puts on a clinic right in one's living room. The beauty about this DVD is that coach Rippetoe explains and shows the students (10+) the correct movements for the various barbell exercises but he also corrects the students until they are all using the right technique for the particular exercise. He uses beginning and intermediate level students. This mix of students is extremely helpful to one's learning.

The part that makes this DVD so wonderful is that after I watched the countless corrections and hints given by coach Rippetoe to each student, I unexpectedly caught myself correcting the student's technique towards the end of one of the exercise's presentation. I vividly recall one instance where student was showing a subtle up/down rear-end movement causing his chest to drop during a deadlift exercise. I said to myself, 'chest starts the deadlift, not the hips', and watched coach Rippetoe address and correct this problem shortly afterwards. This DVD is indeed a clinic on barbell training where the viewer is actively learning.

I hope he makes more DVDs on other barbell exercises. Well done!
