Certified instructor description:
A step-by-step tutorial workout plus two slightly more challenging programs. The unusually detailed cuing makes this a great intro to kettlebell training (Paul is a friendly, experienced teacher who seems to anticipate common errors). The first program focuses on proper form with careful demos of single exercises. The second workout uses those moves in multi-muscle and multi-directional combinations (e.g. a side lunge combined with a bicep curl). The final series is pure abwork; it includes both standing and floor routines. All the sequences are driven by time, not reps (which allows you to correctly do each exercise at your own controlled pace). Requires a kettlebell. ©2012.
