I really enjoyed Bob's Ripped core workout
on June 2, 2015
I've done one other Kettle-bell workout (the Jillian Michaels one) and this one pales in comparison. I did sweat and get my heart rate up, but I felt he took too long explaining moves. What I prefer is either the dancer or coach to go through the movement as they explain and do it in a concise manner. He took too much time and paused too much, leaving me wondering when he would get on to the exercise so my heart rate wouldn't drop. He does introduce some new and interesting moves. However, I was frustrated that 1/3rd of the exercises were non kettle-bell (i.e. push ups/jumping jacks). I have other workout dvds that include this stuff and was looking forward to a more kettle-bell centered workout.
I really enjoyed Bob's Ripped core workout, and that led me to buy this DVD. If you're new to kettle-bell, need more instruction and more time to recover between exercises, this might be nice.
However, if you have some experience, you like to move quickly between exercises, and/or want a primarily kettle-bell focused workout, this one might be one to avoid.
