I was reading up on the RKC, and all things kettlebell before finding what I was looking for as a beginner user. This is the perfect beginners kit and the value is astounding...with the site to store option available and the amount of choices of weights, Walmart prices, are as always, the B E S T! Recommend highly for beginners, has easy to follow printed instructions, along with great instructional DVD that is also user friendly.
The kettlebell workout is definitely challenging. The DVD is divided into three different workouts that you can complete independently or in combination, plus the warm-up and cool-down. I believe, and as stated by the instructor, that if you are new to kettlebells you should begin with either the 8lb or 5lb kettlebell. These are available at Walmart and actually cost a little less. You will be doing many exercises that require you to hold the kettlebell with one hand. You will be balancing 10lbs with one hand, which could be a lot for your wrists, especially if you are a beginner...think arm curls and then pushing the kettlebell up towards the ceiling. The DVD and poster are mediocre, but considering the price, they will do.
I have a friend who did kettleball at a gym and lost several inches and is now lean muscle. I can tell by the first workout WHY that is. This is great for the price.
This is my first experience with Kettlebells. I would not want to go less than 10 lbs. I am in fair shape, and exercise regularly, not strong, by any means. The DVD that comes with it is great for beginners. You really work your body in parts you probably havent before. I would recommend this for beginners. I love it. Instructor is good too.
I have used this twice since I got it after valentine's day. It is a quick workout and not too hard. It did make me sweat some. My legs and buns were sore for two days after and I work out 3-4 times a week. I like this workout and look forward to it knowing it is quick and does the job.
I have both the 5 lb and the 10 lb Kettlebells. The DVDs will only work in my computer and NOT on my TV, which is where I would LIKE for them to work. All that appears on my TV screen is blotches of color and an occasional discernible word. The routines are good, short and intense. One word of caution--when Gin Miller says one should cool down, do it. I didn't cool down the first time I did a workout and paid handsomely the next day by being incredibly sore (and I'm in reasonably good shape). Other than BOTH DVDs not working in my TV's player, it's a good workout.
After reading many reviews on KB's and workout videos, I ordered workouts by certified KB instructors Lauren Brooks and Sarah Lurie. They showed me that Gin Miller is NOT teaching some of the moves correctly which may result in a back injury. Please take the time to review their stuff on Amazon. also, Lauren Brooks has instructions for individual excercises on Youtube, just type in kettlebells or her name. You will see a great difference in the KB throw, among others.
Easy to use and works the core muscles very well.
This was the cheapest 10lb kettlebell I have found. It was a great deal w/ the 97 cent shipping. I prefer the coated plastic handles on dumbells and kettlebells b/c you don't get that weird metallic smell all over your sweaty hands.
The Kettlebell is well made and the DVD that comes with it is very informative and a good workout. When using it make sure you have clearance and follow the instructions on the DVD for safety.
I like that this is a slower paced workout so it is easy to keep up with. Gin Miller is an excellent instructor.
