What are Kettlebells?
Kettlebells (sold separately) are weights with handles that allow you to sculpt your entire body using full-body movements. While Kettlebell workouts have been used by athletes for centuries, they were recently re-introduced to the fitness world, thanks in large part to celebrities and personal trainers, who appreciate the fat burning benefits these simple devices provide.

I own and use this DVD. If I had to own only one teachers DVD instruction for kettlebells...this would be the one. It is detailed, clear, specific, and accurate. Steve is an outstanding athlete and what makes this DVD so good is that Steve is also an exceptional teacher. Numerous of my students have ordered and enjoyed these DVDs. Navigating through the various DVDs is easy. Each movement being taught is shown from several angles with minimal camera movement. This makes it much easier to see what Steve is demonstrating.

Steve puts lots of focus on detailed descriptons of the most efficient way to do each kettlebell lift. I find that I refer back to these DVDs regularly to refine my own skills. Truly a worthwhile investment for everyone wanting outstanding instruction in the art and science of kettlebell lifting.

Get series 1 today, put the principles and skills Steve teaches into practice, and you'll experience significant gains in a very short period of time. I would give these DVDs a ten star if I could.

I am a female in late 20, and I have been training with a trainer past few months. He recommended Steve Cotter videos. After enjoying his free sample videos, I purchases this whole set. I bought this from Amazon Marketplace seller MMA-DVDs at $79 NEW. (Ordered on Wednesday, and received on Monday.)

I watched many KettleBell instruction videos online, and I found Steve Cotter the clearest.
He goes over all the important details without a trace of condescending or arrogance.
He is very thorough. He goes over every possible variation, and every possible safety issues. (I am a physicist and I can ensure that his mechanics is correct.)

The most introductory and clearest one of his video is here, [...]

"Kettlebell Basics with Steve Cotter

Learn proper kettlebell technique. Steve Cotter stops by UW to show us four basic kettlebell movements. The Kettlebell Swing The Single-Arm Kettlebell Swing The Kettlebell Clean The Kettlebell Lockout "

And then this website has a sample from every single chapter of this DVD set.
[...]

He is more instructional than others. He is down to earth. He is less about showing off his skills, and more about sharing his knowledge with us.

Some KettleBellers are fitness genius and watching their videos don't tell me how/whether I can get there (or get any closer). Steve is a fitness genius and also a TEACHING GENIUS.

Steve breaks a big goal into many smaller steps to follow. Having this DVD is like having a GPS navigator for your cross country journey. (Some other DVDs by other people may feel like a compass, just pointing the goal but not necessarily the instructions.)

Every penny well worth spent on this DVD!

The DVD has excellent information. Steve Cotter goes through just about every form of kettlebell lifting imaginable. My main issue with the series is that the workouts provided aren't terribly helpful. The basic workouts seem too quick/easy and the advanced workouts are just that - advanced. I would recommend this as a great way to get kettlebell instruction if you don't have access to a certified trainer. But you'll need another DVD to do an actual workout routine.

Cotter provides every detail of every segment of every lift from every angle. When first viewing DVD #1, this seemed tedious. When I actually tried to do the lifts, I went back and viewed the DVD again, and I greatly appreciated his detailed explanations.

This is not a workout DVD. This is a set of DVDs that demonstrate and explain dozens of lifts. However, Cotter does program numerous workout programs for you, from beginner to advanced, and even specialty programs for football. I counted 16 separate programs. These are listed in a brief pamphlet included in the DVD case.

If you've not been trained by a qualified instructor on kettlebell use, you will really appreciate these videos. And they will probably be all you need, except for a quality set of kettlebells, of course.

If kettlebell training was taught at universities, Steve Cotter would be a professor emeritus. This is truly an in depth analysis of kb. exercises. The DVD progresses in a very logical order and each section is also organized nicely from easier to harder drills. Steve explains each drill in detail and speaks very clearly. Each point is then demonstrated. There is no fluff at all in this set. High quality work from a true professional.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This DVD set lives up to its title. The instruction for each technique is excellent with an emphasis on making the instruction for the technique clear and easy to follow. As previously indicated there is little in the way of flashy production or high tech special effects. Considering the subject what would be the point, it's not an entertainment video, it's an instructional video. I own a number of kettlebell DVDs and book and this one is by far the best for teaching you correct form and technique. The only weakness to this DVD set is that it does not have dedicated sections for programing, proper warm-ups, and mobility/flexibility. There are a few exercises for mobility/flexibility discussed along with some of the techniques, but these are not easily found for reference. Overall, this DVD set is a valuable addition to any training library, and I highly recommend it to anyone that is interested in working out with kettlebells.
