Kettlebells the Iron Core Way, Volume 1, Sarah
After working out with Kettlebells
for about nine months, I was looking for something to switch up my
workouts... to teach me new exercises and challenge me in ways I
couldn't do for myself. My husband found a new set of videos in Vitalics
Magazine and handed me the advertisement. I only had to skim
the article to know I would order both: Kettlebells
the Iron Core Way, Volumes One and Two, with Sarah Lurie, CPT, RKC.
I started out with Volume
One exclusively because I wasn't sure I could even get
through it. I was pleasantly surprised to find that unlike some aerobic
videos - which leave you breathless and uncomfortably sore - this one
leaves you encouraged when you find you can complete it, and you might
even feel pumped up and strong!
It begins by instructing you in some basic Kettlebell exercises, such
as the swing, clean, press, and Turkish Getup. Then you will
participate in a 45 minute circuit, along with Sarah and two other
students. Plenty of 30 second breaks are built in so that you are able
to execute each exercise giving 100%. Allow plenty of room and water.
My favorite discovery was the windmill. I had practiced this movement
plenty of times in the previous nine months but never quite caught on.
After watching Sarah easily execute it, it quickly became one of my
favorite moves. I love the stretch that it provides.
A combined set of front lunges and renegade lunges used to intimidate
me but after doing this DVD three times a week for five weeks, I could
easily complete the set. After a workout, I felt great.
the Iron Core Way Volume One is a must have for beginners and
seasoned Kettlebell fans. You'll love the class and can easily change
the routine to suit your needs. Months later, I look forward to
completing this workout and to feeling slightly but pleasantly sore the
this DVD here!
