Kettlebell DVD Reviews – How To Find The Best Kettlebell DVD For You

Here are some honest kettlebell DVD reviews for you.

(DISCLAIMER: These reviews are all based on my personal knowledge of each DVD plus my personal relationships with the DVD’s creators – all of whom I have known for years and all of whom have the deep desire to help people excel physically.)

The kettlebell DVD – every trainer seems to have their own these days. Sometimes even two or three. But is their kettlebell DVD right for you?

Here’s how to know for sure.

You need to know what your goal is so you can match your goal to the right kettlebell DVD.
Do you want to lose fat? Just generally get in shape? Learn how to use kettlebells? Build muscle? Have someone lead you through a workout that you can do while watching?

Be as specific as you can with your goals because there are a ton of kettlebell DVDs on the market, each one of them as specific as your goals.

Also, make sure that the authors of the kettlebell DVDs you are interested in have a good reputation. Make sure they’re not just somebody ripping off another person’s ideas. For me personally, when I want to learn something of importance, I go straight to the source. Sure, sometimes I might pay a little more, but that’s OK because I know I’m getting great, high quality reliable information that will get me to my goals at a faster pace than the “el-cheapo” version.

The next important thing to know is which category of kettlebell training you fall into.

Are you a beginner, intermediate, or advanced kettlebell user?

And please don’t kid yourself about which one you fall into. If you do, you are really doing yourself a disservice. In fact, you could end up injuring yourself and ending your kettlebell training days permanently.

Let’s take a closer look…


1. Beginner.

The beginner is someone who has been using kettlebells for less than one year. You, my friend, will see marvelous results just focusing on the basics.

Beginner Kettlebell DVD Reviews

Here are several kettlebell DVDs for beginners.

Enter the Kettlebell DVD ReviewEnter the Kettlebell. This is the ultimate primer for kettlebell training. It takes you from beginner status all the way up to advanced status. It can literally be used for that long.

It’s chocked full of the basic kettlebell exercises, common mistakes, and corrections for those mistakes.

Pavel demonstrates the correct technique for the kettlebell swing, the Turkish Get Up, the kettlebell clean, the kettlebell press, and the kettlebell snatch.

If I were forced to choose only one kettlebell DVD, this would be it.

Kettlebells From the Ground Up - Kettlebell DVD ReviewsKettlebells From The Ground Up. This is a kettlebell DVD about the Turkesh Get Up. How can you make a kettlebell DVD about just one exercise? Isn’t that boring? Far from it. In this DVD, Brett Jones, Master Kettlebell Instructor, and Gray Cook, PT, World Renowned Physical Therapist, show you how to field-strip the Get Up to literally turn back your body’s clock helping you feel young again through this simple movement.

If you’ve ever been injured in a sport or while working out, this kettlebell DVD is right up your alley. I have used the information inside it and I arguably feel ten years younger (I’m a high mileage strength aficionado). It literally shows you how to take this one exercise, the Turkish Get Up, and rehabilitate and strengthen all your dinged up parts – shoulders, hips, knees, low back – everything.

Resilient - Kettlebell DVD ReviewsResilient. This kettlebell DVD is one of Pavel’s best. In a similar vein as Kettlebells From The Ground Up, Resilient is a series of kettlebell and bodyweight exercises designed to take the high-mileage athlete and tune him or her back up again. The exercises Pavel demonstrates in this kettlebell DVD address all the areas that athletes and couch potatoes alike pick up chronic aches and dings – lower back, shoulders, hips, knees.

Each exercise in this DVD is designed to address one or two of those areas, like the RKC arm bar. This exercise shows you how to use a light kettlebell (Yes, Bubba, there actually are uses for a light kettlebell – who knew?)

It’s well worth owning and if you follow it as outlined, you’ll see noticeable improvements for sure.

2. Intermediate.

The intermediate kettlebell user is someone who has been training with kettlebells for between one and three years.

Intermediate Kettlebell DVD Reviews

Here are several ketttlebell DVDs for intermediate kettlebell users.

Kettlebells From the Ground Up - Kettlebell DVD ReviewsKettlebells From The Ground Up. Interestingly enough, even though I reviewed this in the beginner section, it is also a stellar product for the intermediate kettlebell user looking to refine his or her kettlebell skills.

This literally takes the Turkish Get Up to a whole new level of difficulty. It helps you assess, identify, and correct any major (but not operable) weaknesses you may have or may have and didn’t know about.

It must be experienced to be believed. But in my estimation, this product is well worth the money and time invested in it.

Kettlebell DVD rating: Still 5 out of 5.

More Russian Kettlebell Challenges - Kettlebell DVD ReviewsMore Russian Kettlebell Challenges. This is Pavel’s third kettlebell DVD I believe and it was filmed before Enter The Kettlebell. It is our first introduction to the staple kettlebell exercise, the Turkish Get Up. In it he includes 25 different kettlebell exercises, each of which, except maybe the Spit Press (youch!) has a place in every kettlebell nut’s regimen.

It is also our first real introduction to the powerful double kettlebell exercises like the Double Kettlebell Front Squat and the Double Kettlebell Clean (and Press).

It is a masterful blend of single kettlebell, double kettlebell, and kettlebell flexibility exercises.
Pick up this kettlebell DVD once you have finished the ETK Rite of Passage.

The Kettlebell Goddess Workout - Kettlebell DVD ReviewsThe Kettlebell Goddess Workout. This is a full on work-along DVD by Master Kettlebell Instructor, Andrea Du Cane. Its target audience is women. So it caters to the needs and desires of women. Therefore, as a man, I have absolutely no use for it. (Just kidding – had to see if you were paying attention.)

Andrea takes you through a thorough warm up before each workout (yes, more than one workout to choose from – six in fact – which makes this a “must-have” DVD for women working out with kettlebells) and Nicole and Kristann demonstrate the exercises from different views. You can also pick from upper body, lower body, core, or cardio for whatever area you want to workout on any particular day.

This is an excellent work along kettlebell DVD for women (and even men, as long as you don’t want to become a goddess…).

And you can’t beat the price for all that you get.

These kettlebell workouts for women are really fantastic. If you’re a woman, you’re going to love these workouts. (And guys, pick up a copy for your wife or girlfriend – she’ll thank you for it and you’ll like her better because of it.)

3. Advanced.

The advanced kettlebell user is someone who has over three years of kettlebell training and is not only familiar, but relatively proficient with all the kettlebell exercises, including the double kettlebell ones.

Advanced Kettlebell DVD Reviews

Here is a great kettlebell DVD for the advanced kettlebell user.

Return of the Kettlebell - Kettlebell DVD ReviewsReturn of the Kettlebell. This is Pavel’s newest kettlebell DVD. (Of course there’s also a book that goes along with this and you should, no wait, you must have it if you are an advanced kettlebell lifter.) In it, Pavel, and Master Kettlebell Instructor, Kenneth Jay, show you much more in depth than in More Russian Kettlebell Challenges how to perform the double kettlebell exercise, including the Clean, Front Squat, Press, Clean and Jerk, and Snatch (that’s right, the Double Snatch!) He also reveals some novelty snatches that can be done with light kettlebells that will make your shoulders swell up like grapefruits.

The focus of this whole program is how to build a powerfully strong and muscular body with the double kettlebell exercises. And Pavel doesn’t fail to deliver a program that yields maximum results.

Don’t worry if you can’t do some of the exercises, Pavel shows you corrections for each one and they’ll have you up and running in no time.

Return of the Kettlebell is focused solely at those individuals wanting to pack on mass, so it’s primarily for men, but women can benefit from it to. And it does a phenomenal job of doing so. Pavel lays out two distinctly different but effective mechanisms for packing on mass quickly. Both are challenging and fun. But beware! You’ll have to eat a lot with these kettlebell workouts!

If you pick up this DVD, you’ll absolutely want to get the companion book that goes along with it that actually details the RTK program.

Kettlebell DVD rating: 4 out of 5.

There are of course many more kettlebell DVDs on the market today than just these. However, I personally feel that these are some of the best. And as such, I wanted my kettlebell DVD reviews to be based only on the programs I am familiar with.

Hopefully you’ve found these kettlebell DVD reviews more than helpful and already know which one or two you need to start with to start seeing the results you really want!
