In Russia, kettlebells have long been revered as the fitness-tool of choice for Olympic athletes, elite special forces and martial artists. The kettlebell's ballistic movement challenges the body to achieve an unparalleled level of physical conditioning and overall strength.
But until now, the astonishing benefits of the Russian kettlebell have been unavailable to all but a few women. Kettlebells have mostly been the sacred preserve of the male professional athlete, the military and other hardcore types. That's about to change, as Russian fitness expert and best selling author PAVEL, delivers the first-ever kettlebell program for women.
It's wild, but women really CAN have it all when they access the magical power of Russian kettlebells. Pavel's uncompromising workouts give across-the-board, simultaneous, spectacular and immediate results for all aspects of physical fitness: strength, speed, endurance, fat-burning, you name it. Kettlebells deliver any and everything a woman could want—if she wants to be in the best-shape-ever of her life.
And one handy, super-simple tool—finally available in woman-friendly sizes—does it all. No bulky, expensive machines. No complicated gizmos. No time-devouring trips to the gym.
Into sports? Jump higher. Leap further. Kick faster. Hit harder. Throw harder. Run with newfound speed. Swim with greater power. Endure longer.
Working hard? Handle stress with ridiculous ease. Blaze thru tasks in half the time. Radiate confidence. Knock 'em dead with your energy and enthusiasm.
Time to relax? Finally have the extra umph you need to truly enjoy your downtime.
After showing me his ENTER THE KETTLEBELL DVD and giving me his copy of PTP, my boyfriend bought me the package FROM RUSSIA WITH TOUGH LOVE (book,DVD and a 26lb KB.) I began doing the DVD/Book workouts with Dumbells as I awaited my KB arrival. I have named it Cruella. I am only two weeks into using the sample workouts in the book. Was I imagining I felt results immediately? No- I dodge NYC yellow taxis and get accross NYC streets faster as well as take subway stairs two at a time carrying a packed knapsack without hesitation since starting the workouts. I have a backround in Artistic Gymnastics, Rhythmic Gymnastics, Ballet, Pilates and some weight training. No Comrades, my dumbells are not pink! (But they were a bit dusty.) Now, I can't wait to workout!As a physical therapist I am impressed with the foundation in science and literature that Pavel refers to in PTP. I am even more impressed with the precise breakdown of skills in the DVD. I have met world champions and famous personalities in sports and dance who had not mastered breaking down movements when giving workshops. A skilled teacher is not only invaluable but sadly, rare. Pavel has the talent for teaching necessary to get through to even us beginners. Andrea and K.C. do a wonderful job demonstrating. They have turned the KB lifts into choreography as they seemlessly perform the lifts together. Content-wise this is a high quality, precise DVD. the book/DVD and KB are well worth the investment. Working out with KB's is a thinking person's workout! You can't afford loosing your concentration or to forget proper technique. So far, I have had strength gains, weight loss and increased energy! I am also starting to get a sense of the cardiovascular aspects of the KB workout! My biggest sadness is that I didn't get a KB YEARS or even DECADES ago!A big Thank You or Spaceeba Bolshoi, Pavel!
The material presented was in a straight, "no nonsense approach." My mother got interested into the femme program and has become a convert to the way of the party.
For my Tough Love victim I chose my ninety year old mother.She did a box sit-up from the beginning of the Tough Love DVD, standing up with a 4kg kettlebell. I told her to throw the bell out from her chest, forward, to grease her get up. (ballistic box sit-up?)I've noticed that ballistic kb exercise seems to apply traction to a joint and then smear cartilage around. My mother is trying to do that for a hip that has virtually no cartilage showing on X-ray. She's been taking all the right supplements to reduce inflammation and support cartilage and protect or improve bone density. Now it's time to "bite the hair of the dog", as Pavel says.For a windmill she just holds an empty hand up and tries to touch her knee. Valery Federenko's grandmother can press 24kg but my mother would settle for pressing 4kg to begin a windmill. That's a reasonable goal for a month from now. VitalZymSEB and protein after workouts!Instead of using the healthy hip and leg to step up on stairs, she's using the bad hair dog side to step up. When she can let go of the railing, then hold a kettlebell out front RKC-torture-style. Already she has progressed to carrying a bundle of laundry on the stairs instead of using a shoulder bag.I just take the full monty from DVD matching the focus for rehab, and water it down, like for the hip do a windmill with no bell and touch the knee instead of the ground. Or box sit-up as get-up for today, and Turkish Get-Up some day.Every allegation of elder abuse must be investigated. Is she just breaking adhesions or really smearing new cartilage around? Let's see the X-ray after a few months with kettlebells and without the original sources of inflammation. Anecdotal makes a comrade, science(knowledge not circle jerk hired hierarchicalism) makes a cadre. Pavel's wisdom overthrows an unworthy regime of pain and limited mobility. Bite the hair of the running dog of complacency, comrades!
Knowing what exercises to perform with the kettlebell is important, but performing the exercise correctly is critical. The video does an excellent job of explaining and them demonstrating each excercise which allows the viewer to take full advantage of the kettlebell training method. Give it 5/5 stars!
This is a solid, perfect instructional DVD. I am new to kettlebells, and this is what I turn to when I need help with a move. Working with a trainer is best, but if you don't have access to a kettlebell trainer, this DVD is the next best thing. I absolutely love it!
I bought this video for both my wife and me after getting Enter the Kettlebell. It's definitely a good companion to ETK. Some of the same exercises are covered, but it also goes into the squats and abdominals as well. I learned from both, so I would suggest both for a new kettlebell user. I have definitely benefitted greatly from following these exercises. I have lost about 14# of fat and gained 4# of muscle in addition to greatly increasing my shoulder strength and stability from doing these exercises. They have also loosened up my hamstrings and strengthened my back quite a bit. One of the things I like about the video is the emphasis on proper form and safety. I have recommended this video to friend interested in felling the Russian pain!
I am new at kettlebells & just started using "From Russia With Tough Love" Am very impressed at the self discipline it teaches. I am anxious to see the end results once I master every technique on the DVD.
This is like nothing I've ever done before. I was sore from head to toe the first time I did this video. It'll take some practice to get all the moves down correctly. It's fun, it's different, and it makes you feel strong. I've been recommending it to all my friends!
This is an excellent beginners video for comrades of both genders. Pavel is his entertaining self,but his sense of humor and showmanship only adds to the instructive value of the tape. Highly recommended.
This is my first kettlebell video and I am totally impressed! This workout has strengthened me very quickly and I am feeling so much better. I have fibromyalgia and am pleased to say this workout does not make me hurt! I will purchase more products from Dragon Door!I dropped one whole size in just 3 weeks.
