3.0 out of 5 stars Learn to weightlift, 11 Dec 2002
This book describes a number of different exercises to perform with a kettlebell,they are well described and well illustrated.
the main failing with this book is that it tries to attribute too many benefits to kettlebells without providing any exercise routines which would achieve these benefits.Kettlebells in general have one big advantage over other types of exercise;they encourage you to learn a proper weightlifting technique in terms of learning how to dip your knees in a "clean" and a "snatch"
and also being dynamic or explosive in your lift.
If you are not explosive then the kettlebell will soon tire you out and if you don't dip your knees and control the kettlebell as it comes over your hand you will get a very sore wrist.
The other benefits claimed are really just those that can be achieved by high repetition training with any type of weight.
