For several years, I've competed in both age-group Track and Field and age-group Olympic Weightlifting at the International level. I noticed that some of my competitors, particularly the Eastern Europeans, stated that they utilized kettlebells as part of their training. I know that kettlebell training has been used widely for many years in Russia and Eastern Europe for athletics and fitness, as well as an athletic completion in itself. I also know that kettlebells are becoming a popular fitness and sports training method in North America. The advantages of kettlebells are numerous: they are compact and portable, and they can provide cardio, strength, explosiveness, mobility, and flexibility benefits all in the same workout. It was with great interest, then, that I reviewed The Great Kettlebell DVD by James Talo.
I was impressed by the fact that James Talo is certified by both the AKC (American Kettlebell Club) and the RKC (Russian Kettlebell Club). Who knows about kettlebells better than the Russians! James begins the DVD with an introduction when he talks about the benefits of kettlebells and how to approach kettlebell exercises. Next, he clearly demonstrates the basics of properly and efficiently using the kettlebell: stance and keeping the core stabilized, hip control, gripping and handling the kettlebell, and using the kettlebell when lying down.
Next is a series of kettlebell exercises, all clearly demonstrated by James or a fitness model and all with easy-to-follow spoken instructions from James. Each exercise is broken down into easy, intermediate, and advanced movements, starting with the easy and, step-by-step, progressing to the advanced. The demonstrations and instructions are presented so you can work along with them in real-time, or even repeat them if you would like. This comprehensive series of kettlebell exercises can work the entire body and be done in a small space and in a short time with a single kettlebell as the only equipment needed. That s an efficient workout!
I recommend this DVD to not only the beginner who wants to learn how to use kettlebells safely, properly, and efficiently but also to the experienced user who wants to better use kettlebells to achieve their training goals. It s all there in this DVD. --G. Lamothe, Athletics Canada, Vancouver, BC
