Since I'm a women's fitness coach, I'm not very much into video training. However, I wanted to add kettlebells into my own training. Therefore, I wanted a good video that would show me correct technique. Though I had been doing kettlebell swings using a 25 pound weight plate, I didn't know much else in the way of other kettlebell exercises. For my first time using Bob Harper's video, I lightened my weight load tremendously to 10 lbs. I did this to make sure I wouldn't hurt myself while I was learning the forms of new exercises. Boy, was I in for a surprise! Bob really kicked my bootay! OUCH! For someone who is very physically fit, I was very surprised that I got such a great workout from a video. My abs were sore a few hours after the workout, and I woke up the next morning with very sore glutes. Actually, my glutes were sore for a whole week! The video starts off slowly with some warmup exercises. It then moves into kettlebell training exercises quickly. For rests, Bob has you do jumping jacks and burpees. No kidding! Towards the end, you'll get a great isolated abdominal workout before the final cooldown. The video training is approximately 50 minutes long. I would highly recommend this video. For about $10, you won't regret it. Along with another one or two video's in Bob's kettlebell series, his training gives P90X a run for it's money! ~Abby Campbell, [...]

In my eyes, Bob Harper has always been the perfect trainer. I haven't missed one DVD he has and I've never been let down. Not only does he have an ease on camera that makes you feel as though he is personally encouraging you, he explains each move so that you do it best and do it right...and he motivates. Because the DVDs he's now putting out without the Biggest Loser title are nothing short of fantastic (really professionally put together with the camera shots, close up to show important form, timers, set, backup trainers in perfect form and in sync etc) I was beyond thrilled to see a kettlebell workout by him.

I've been doing kettlebells for some time now and if you've never tried one, I have to say you are missing out. Unlike many things that enter the market and become a workout fad, this has, instead, blown up in popularity even with professional body builders and it's easy to see why. You use muscles you wouldn't ordinarily use and you have FUN working out with all the swings and moves that feel more like a game than repetitive handweights moving up and down and its been proven that the kettlebell workouts burn more calories in less time and I concur.) Additionally, I use my kettlebell in any other workout where they ask me to hold two weights in one hand. It's simply more comfortable.

That said, as far as a fantastic workout...this will push you and you will quickly see results. While I normally use a 12 lb kettlebell even though I use 2 7-lb. dumbbells when working out, this one really works best for me if I use a lighter kettlebell due to the repetitive reps rather than varying movements.

So here's the thing...I have mixed feelings on this one. Bob is his regular awesome, inspiring, motivating self.

I have other Bob Harper DVDs, but I really didn't like this one. If you're looking for a solid KETTLEBELL workout (which I was) then you'll need to look elsewhere.

1. Almost 50% of this workout is old-school calisthenics (push-ups, burpees, etc.) and aerobics! This is completely unnecessary for a kettlebell workout, and suggests to me that he either doesn't trust the full cardio benefits of kettlebells by themselves, or doesn't trust that the people who buy this DVD already appreciate the benefits of kettlebells. You do a kettlebell move or two, and then immediately put those down to do something from your eighth-grade gym class.

2. At best, techniques are presented as little pointers. For example, barely 10 minutes in, he's doing high windmills with just a word or two on technique. There's nothing on this DVD to thoroughly demonstrate or explain how to do this move - or any of them - safely and properly. (I guess he's assuming you bought the Bob Harper kettlebell and watched the DVD that comes with that. Since I already own a non-Bob Harper kettlebell, I'd say that's a risky assumption.)

3. There's no rest, not even a few seconds' worth, between kettlebell and calisthenic moves, and for this level of intensity, there SHOULD be. It's very easy to think you're not working as hard as you really are when swinging a kettlebell, and Bob should know better.

4. There's no chapters, no way to skip the 5-minute warm-up if you've already been doing something else, and the only 'extra' is a trailer. There's no suggested workout schedule like on his Biggest Loser DVDs, no section on kettlebell moves and safety, nothing.

I really like Bob Harper's workouts. This one was no exception. I have been doing kettlebells at home for about 6 months now with other videos. I was really excited that Bob was putting out kettlebell workouts. He did not disappoint! He does a great job teaching the basic kettlebell moves-especially the clean and the press. I think I finally learned how not to bang my wrist. He breaks down the movements in a really understandable way. His manner is so encouraging that even when he is pushing you hard, you believe you can do it. I really like that Bob's subjects (in this case it is Becky) seem to really be struggling along with me to complete the workout. I can't stand excercise videos that feature smiling excercisers who dont' seem like they are breaking a sweat. I will say that in my experience, I need to have different weight kettlebells for different exercises. This could be discouraging for someone who has already shelled out some bucks on one kettlebell. I will admit, they are not cheap. But they are worth it. Make sure to watch the video that comes with your contoured kettlebell. It will teach you how to modify certain exercises, like the windmill. In short, I highly recommend this video to anyone who really likes a challenging, sweat-filled workout. You will feel awesome when you complete it!
