No nonsense. Great Value.
on 22 October 2011
I bought this book on the reviews that I had read, as I wanted info on working with KBs. With a weightlifting background, I wanted to do more with 'bells to see the results and sample a different training method.
This book is comprehensive in exercise description and photos such that you can get started and feel that you are doing the exercises right. Follow the rules about progression and you will make good progress - without injury. Some exercises are tricky to master, using balance and co-ordination. I have improved lots here. Windmills, get ups etc. for shoulder stability.
You would need 3 to 4 'bells to get the best from all programmes as some exercises need heavier 'bells on the strength training section. I use 8,12, 16 kg (could use a 20 on some)as I am light in weight.
You get a clear idea of how to put a typical routine together - which is what I do - or you can go with those in the book. Variey is good and you do feel a sense of achievement on finishing a session - because they are challenging!!
Overall, I think this is great value for money and if not for you, then you haven't spent a fortune.
