Roll up for the great kettlebell workout without a kettlebell!!, 14 July 2012
This has to be one of the most deliberately misleading product descriptions I have ever had the misfortune to encounter. The instructor shows you the nice yellow kettlebell for all of two minutes. Then it's "sayonara" kettlebell. She then goes on to tell us that she is going to do a kettlebell workout with a dumbbell. She obviously knows little about kettlebells if she feels a dumbbell workout using kettlebell moves is suitable substitute.
Seasoned kettlebell users will know that there are specific techniques to be mastered first if you want to avoid significant injury to your back and wrists in particular and also of course get results. She obviously doesn't know this otherwise (I would hope) she wouldn't deliberately put potential users in harms way, would she?
So my advice would be not to buy this if you are looking for a kettlebell workout because other than the nice picture of a kettlebell on the front, the word 'kettlebell' in the title, the instructor holding the kettlebell for a couple of minutes to describe it and saying the word kettlebell every so often this is a DUMBBELL workout. And I admittedly feel like a dumbbell for buying it but in my defence there was what looked like a decent amount of potential kettlebell action on the cover sleeve. I was looking for a bit of variety in terms of my home workout and thought this would be useful. Next time I'll try reading the very small print before I purchase.
