Kettlebell Training Basics: Kettlebells are a weighted cannon ball with a handle that delivers an all in one strength and cardio workout. Kettlebells work the entire body with each movement. Exercise converts use them as the latest fitness tool to achieve the core, functional strength and fat burning that has eluded them in other workout programs. A typical 1- hour kettlebell workout can burn up to 1,200 calories.

Volume 1 teaches foundation kettlebell exercises like the swing, clean, press and front squat. Volume 1 also has a 45 minute heart pounding, fat burning follow along workout circuit. Volume 2 builds on the foundation exercises taught in Volume 1. Instruction on the more advanced kettlebell lifts , like the snatch, and a 45 minute sweat- inducing workout guarantee you will lose fat and inches forever!

I really enjoyed this video. The first section was instruction on the basic moves. It is SO much better to see someone demonstrating the moves rather than reading them in a book. The "workout" section a first seems like it will be slow paced, (30 sec rest between movements) until you start doing it! IF you are not sweating by the end of the first circuit, you need a heavier kettlebell! This workout will build both strength and endurance. I highly recommend it to anyone strength training at home.

Absolutely great for the kettle bell beginner. Instructions are to the point and the video is well done. No kooky stuff here just plain and simple. Pleasant to watch and great routine. This is the one if you are a beginner. There is nothing about how to pick out a kettle bell just what to do with it. So if you need advise on how to get the right size kettle bell this is not it. I would advise 10-15lbs for beginner female and 25-30lbs for beginner male. This is for healthy people 65 and under with no injuries. Go down by 5lbs if you are not healthy or have had knee or back problems. Once you get the hang of it you'll naturally go up and beside you'll need to buy another kettle bell anyway as you get stronger.

This DVD does provide a good introduction to some basic kettlebell exercises, and the kettlebell can be an excellent training tool.
As a physical therapist, however, I am concerned that proper form is not explained or emphasized well, and in fact she gives some instructions I find potentially dangerous - such as "lock out the knee". I'd be very interested to learn what sort of exercise physiology background, if any, she has. I looked on her website and it seems like she's a smart woman who saw a good way to make money - perhaps without a good depth of A&P knowledge.

My professional opinion would be that this DVD is appropriate for people who are reasonably fit, have worked out before and understand some basic tenets of exercise physiolgy, and do not have knee or back problems.

I will add that her website sells the DVD for half the price that amazon is currently offering it at.

A wonderful introduction to kettlebell training, partucularly for those who are intimidated by the "macho" attitude prevalent in most other KB DVDs. Sarah Lurie provides basic instruction on all the movements covered (but not so much that it becomes tedious to watch on repeat viewings). The 40 minute "do-along" workout makes it a good buy for those who want to really get their money's worth. The only real negative in my book is that the rest periods are 30 seconds long (great for beginners, but too long for those who wish to keep their heart rate elevated), and some of the more challenging exercises aren't included. I hear that Volume 2 is more challenging, but I don't have it, and can't comment.

I found this video extremely helpful. My husband and I recently purchased kettlebells as our workout technique but were completely clueless on what to do. She does a great job of demonstrating all the moves before she begins the circuit. NOTE: if you are new to kettlebells do not try to do the circuit three times as she does in the video. I did the circuit once and was sore head to toe 36 hours later. Don't over do it!!!

Here's why this DVD is great:

* She doesn't make jokes or talk to people during the sets. You know how annoying it is watching a video and knowing some comment or joke is coming -- nails on a chalkboard!

* There's a 30 second rest between sets.

* You can jump right into the exercise without watching a long intro each time and/or endure lengthy explanation each time about the exercises.

* She doesn't talk down to the audience and seems sincere.

My only teeny-tiny criticism is that the audio is very loud by default.

I really enjoyed this dvd. The pacing of the excercise is great for beginners like myself, without the annoying macho posturing of the Pavel kettlebell videos. Granted the 30 second breaks in between are not conducive to keeping your heartrate elevated throughout the workout, but that's just fine for a beginner or if you want a less intense workout. The only problem is the abdominal work-I find that my legs are worked more than my midsection. Overall highly recommended-you get your money's worth.

I am new to kettlebells but love to lift weights and do cardio. I thought that this would be something new. WOW. It is an amazing workout. I used a 18 lb kettlebell and I am really feeling it. This is a better leg workout than I have ever had before. The 30 sec. breaks seem annoying at first but based on how I felt the next day I need them. It's no big deal though once you are strong enough you can just exercise through them. The DVD is half the price on her website and at target. Overall, it's a good choice for beginners.
