Most of the weight exercises described would not require a kettlebell and could be done using a dumbbell. Very little coverage is given to swing and ballistic exerices which are the main component of a kettelbell workout.
I have since read another book by a specialist kettlebell trainer and it was far superior. Even though it was aimed at a general audience and was not age specific it gave better safety and injury avoidance tips and step by step instructions.
Dr Karl's book is perfect for individuals looking for a new tool to challenge themselves safely and effectively. Due to the shape of the kettlebell, it forces your core to engage and incites your need to maintain control of your center of gravity. This equals a fantastic functional workout.
Before starting, please DO NOT skip the chapter entitled "before you begin". Aside from highlighting safety and injury prevention, it has a section on common problem areas.
Highlights of the book:
- Tips on finding the correct starting weight for you
- Variations and modifications for your ability level
- Exercises recommendations for specific sports
- Excellent photos
