Watch The Kettlebell Goddess Workout and you will know why Andrea DuCane is the leader in women's kettlebell training.

Pavel Tsatsouline --dragondoor.com

This is by far the best workout DVD I've found. The exercises are clearly explained and done in real time, including the reps so you don't have to keep hitting the pause key.

There are so many drills and they are laid out in a great format - both as total workouts for cardio, upper body, legs etc, and as individual drills. There is even a list of suggested drill groups for daily and weekly workouts. Nothing is left out. A great workout DVD.

This is one of the best DVD's that I have ever purchased. It is so complete with workouts and instructions. The variety is terrific. I really enjoyed Andrea in "From Russia with Tough Love", but this is the best. Nicole and Kristann are a wonderful compliment to her and very much inspire me to keep working to get better. I tried to just watch the video without picking up the kettlebells, but I couldn't. I had to jump right into a workout. I am glad I did. First the warm up was one of the most thorough that I have ever had. Then the exercises really hit the mark. I had such a pump in my lower body and an overall rush all over. Then the nice cool down made me feel like I really accomplished something. I plan to keep on doing the workouts. Thanks for the Kettlebell Goddess Workout. Please keep up the good work!

I have been doing KB workouts for about 2 months now. I have Karen Brooks' workout and a couple of Anthony DeLuglio's DVDs (Providence and KB Training Vol. 1).

The workouts on this video are very short and tough. The Goddess workouts are less than 30 minutes, including warm-up and cool down. The add-ons and drills are less than 15 minutes. If you are short on time, these workouts fit the bill. If you want a longer workout, you'll have to get creative with the chapters.

There is a PDF file on the disc that you can print out to ge a better understanding on how to combine the sections to create your own workouts.

The instructors don't talk much. There are no cues as to when to start ("Ready? And,...begin...," etc...) Counting can only be heard as part of the breathing. The lead instructor provides minimal guidance. Some of the basic movements are explained in separate chapters, but other moves you'll have to learn on-the-fly, with no explanation.

One instructor, who is also a doctor, looks a bit panicked some of the time, and her form falters during many of the exercises. She sometimes loses her balance, looks like the KBs are controlling her (rather than the other way around), or just looks like she's struggling to keep up.

Some of the exercises use two KBs - two-handed cleans and swings, for example. Many of the exercises can be done with regular dumbells - renegade pushups (pushups with alternating lat pulls), single leg squats (called 'pistol box squats', I think), back lunges, waiter walk, dragon walk, deadlifts (good mornings), etc.

I think the layout of the chapters is a good idea for someone who is motivated to create their own workouts.

I'm new to the kettlebell craze but not to weight training. I purchased Kettlenetics after seeing an infomercial and loved the workout and results. The Goddess workout is only the second kettlebell routine I've tried. It is a different type of workout than Kettlenetics and therefore I have added it to my weekly routine. I feel sore in the right places the day after I use it.
There are several full workouts on the DVD as well as the option to create your own. They use heavy weights. I only use an 8 pound bell but am getting great results. (I tried the routines with my 4 pound bell but didn't feel it was much of a challenge.) Each workout runs about 30 minutes. It doesn't seem like much time but the routines are intense. You cover a lot of ground in this short time. The prompting is good.
It is worth the price.

There is so much footage on this DVD that it would be near impossible to describe it all (although another VFer, Carol, has provided some very nice breakdowns of the individual Goddess workouts). Therefore, I'm going to focus on mainly providing an overview of the DVD's format.

The DVD is led by Andrea Du Cane, a Master RKC (Russian Kettlebell Certified) Instructor. She is joined by two other RKC instructors, Nicole Du Cane (who leads the stretch segment) and Kristann Heinz, M.D. The three women are exercising in a rather sparse studio with concrete floors; kettlebells are set about on pedestals. There is NO music during this DVD and very little talking overall--i.e., Du Cane often simply introduces the exercise and the begins the repetitions, with virtually no setup, form pointers, or other information.

The Main Menu of DVD breaks down into MANY different submenu menus, as indicated by ellipses. Here are the options from the Main Menu, with brief comments and times added by me:
*Play All
*Introduction (Andrea provides a 5min overview, including the general layout of the DVD, the option of using 1 or 2 kettlebells, and the importance of wearing flat-soled shoes)
*Quick Start Review...
*Workouts Menu...
*Medical Benefits from Kettlebell Training (Kristann reviews general exercise benefits; 4.5min)
*Pregnancy and Kettlebell Training (Kristann discusses kettlebells and pregnancy; 8min)
*Get the Most Out of Your Kettlebell DVD (this option instructs the viewer to place the disc in a computer drive, which will access a PDF file with additional tips on programming your own workout, breakdowns of the Goddess workouts, and suggestions for workout rotations)
*Contact Information...

I like this DVD because you can customize your own workouts. Be prepared, this is tough and I am only using a ten pound kettlebell! I have not have the nerve to try any of the complete workouts. I usually do a session of abs, arms, and legs..that is plenty! If I can ever get myself to progress to the longer sessions (and I am hoping to do that this winter), I know I will see a difference! This is the only DVD that I have found with the short workouts that you can combine into a customized one for yourself. For that alone, I recommend this DVD! My only complaint is that there is not enough explanation (or even counting) during the workouts. I could use the help because three people are doing the exercises in slightly different ways. In addition, I like to know that how many reps I have done, so that I will not give up!
