The kettlebells are made of what looks like polycarbonate and the handles are textured with a sort of crosshatching for better grip. "Soft" means it is rigid resin with a textured, rigid handle, not cast iron metal. They are not soft and rubbery at all. The inside is filled with sand but there is no shifting of contents. I have seen kettlebells on the market made of a sort of balloon filled with sand and a funny handle. These are truly kettlebell shaped but are lighter than the standard iron bells, and allow for a bigger handle. The issue with the mini-bells used by women is that the very small (under 5 pound) bells have very tiny grips because, well, cast iron is heavy stuff. This design allows for a full-sized bell without the issue of improper size. That's a good thing.
The workouts are total body even though they stress either upper, lower or core. Fat burning is more aerobic-based. You use a series of swings, presses mixed with squats for the upper body so it is always using all your muscles; tightening core as you press while doing a demi-squat and swinging the bell back for a tricep exercise, for example.Read more ›
Let me first describe myself so you can compare..... I am 44 yr old woman and have been using free weights in workouts like THE FIRM since my 20's. I love the Firm, but at this age I guess it has felt tedious to me for 65 minutes. I had heard Kettle Bells are an incredible workout and when I saw this whole package on Dr. Mercola website for $29.95 I went for it. So someone else on here gave a review and said they didn't think this workout gave very good instruction and they recommended Sarah Lurie's Beginner workout so that you learn proper form. I decided to order that dvd also. I tried it today and I have to say it made me love KATHY SMITH's workout even more!! Sarah Lurie no doubt starts off by telling you how to do the different lifts, but I was surprised in the "warmup" that she started out having us use the bells already. And then the workout was so boring!!Read more ›
what i loved was the feel of the kettle bells. the ones i originally bought are metal.
the kathy smith kettle bells are a little softer,and easier on the hands...especially of you have arthritis like me.
Shortly after I first posted this, I swung the 5lb kettlebell into the "rack" position and cracked the head of my left radius. The bone healed in two months, unfortunately, the nature of the injury also injured most of the ligaments and they can take around year to heal. So even though I really like the kettlebell, and I really liked the routines for this one, I won't be using it anymore.
And I'd like to strongly caution those who do use to not let it swing against you, especially at the elbow.
I have wanted to try kettlebells, as I thought that the core stabilization required would enhance my sport of choice. I am at an intermediate fitness level, and did find this to be extremely effective, especially with respect to the core and aerobic workouts. The bells are soft on the hands, and the light weight will be fine for most people who work out. I will say, though, that beginners or those with back trouble are going to want to limit any swinging motion with the added weight. It didn't kick my butt, but it did provide multi-dimensional toning. I'll feel my abs tomorrow, which is what I was really looking for.
I echo other reviewers' comments on Kathy's form in this video; be cautious, keep your stance neutral, and your core engaged. Again, though, this is a great introduction to a new workout method for me. The beauty of the bells is that you will work your core the whole time that you use them.
