A must for those wishing to train effectively with kettlebells
on 4 August 2008
This is a great book for learning the techniques required for the various must do lifts. The number of main exercises in the book, you could just about count on a single hand but the attention to detail is excellent, the teaching points are clear and explicit with clear pictures demonstrating how to perform and how not to perform while also giving advice as to how to strengthen weak points in your technique. As a certified Kettlebell Instructor in the UK I use this book and its compatriot for women (From Russia with tough love) as a point of reference and recommend them also to my clients if they are really committed to improving their performance/fat burning potential or whatever their goal is. The writing style is also very easy to read with some good background into the benefits of kettlebell training and some ideas for program design. I have used kettlebells for over 2 years now and seen some great gains with my clients. While I had to do a certified instructor course to be able to do this, this book is my text book for that and would not be without it.
