A personal review of:



Practical Kettlebell Training Volume 1

A 2-set DVD on kettlebell training. The first disc encompasses aspects such as the clean, the press, the jerk as well as stretching and warming up.

The second disc covers a variety of workouts which range from 5 minutes to 20 minutes and will permit a great session in a short time.

The following link goes into detail about the various aspects covered, so I won’t repeat it here:

Practical Kettlebell Training Vol. 1 | London Kettlebells


The thing I really like about the DVD set is that they use a split screen format so that you see the exercise being performed both from the side and the front simultaneously all the way through along with the running commentary; I find that particularly helpful.

There’s only so much that can be learned from youtube and the DVDs are a great addition if you cannot get to an instructor, or simply wish to teach yourself in your own time.

This is a personal review of The Complete Guide to Kettlebell Lifting by Steve Cotter.

The 253 page book comes with a DVD which covers all the exercises in the book. The book itself is very high quality paper and from page 12 onwards, right up to page 253, every page has from around 4 to 6 high quality photos of the exercises being done one step at a time. Most exercises are covered on a page to view scenario with some taking as many as 4 pages, generally 1 -2 though. A total of 191 exercises.

Some exercise names:

1 arm 1 leg press: ipsilateral raise
Alternating seated snatch
Jump shrugs


^^Just to give you some idea of some exercises within the book.


The book sections exercises according to body part/muscle grouping, and also has an advanced section in which there is no specific muscle grouping given for the exercise in question.

An excellent book, with tips along the way, the minor things that make the difference to the lift.

Personal review of Extreme Kettlebell Workout


A 4-set DVD by Steve Cotter.

DVD 1:
This is primarily about upper body workouts and warm-ups.

DVD 2:
Primarily about lower body warm-ups and workouts.

DVD 3:
There is a selection of abs and core workouts, consisting of 2 circuit workouts and 3 10-minute core workouts of which one is done standing.

DVD 4:
3 workouts: 10 minutes, 20 minutes, and 58 minutes (from what I recall of the longest one).



Very good workouts, with a workout that Steve Cotter himself follows; if the others don't "kill" you, that one is sure to do so.

The one thing I did not like in the longest workout is that Steve Cotter makes use of 2-4 bosu's which many people, if not all people, will not have access to; this means that the couple of exercises that he does in that part of the workout are inaccessible to others, to a degree. But, other than that, still a very good workout and there would certainly be ways to work around the bosu "section" by doing the exercises without the bosu (some would work) or by replacing the exercises with something similar, or just incorporating another low intensity KB exercise in their place.
