Jeff Martone’s Kettlebell WODbook
by Jeff Martone
Jeff Martone’s Kettlebell WODbook is designed to expose athletes to a wide variety of WODs that will unleash the full potential of both the kettlebell and the athletic performance. The Kettlebell WODbook is for athletes and coaches who have mastered the basic kettlebell movements as presented in the CrossFit Kettlebell Trainers Course, Jeff’s Tactical Athlete Kettlebell Instructor Certification, or in Jeff’s book Kettlebell RX: The Complete Guide for Athletes and Coaches and instructional video “Beyond the American Swing.” The Kettlebell WODbook is a comprehensive training journal to track your progress. The exercises are sequenced from simple to complex, basic to advanced, GPP to SPP with appropriate kettlebell WODs and programming at every level in between. Please note: The Kettlebell WODbook is NOT a comprehensive instructional “how-to” manual. If you are unfamiliar with some of the exercises in this book then find a competent kettlebell coach, attend a kettlebell trainers course or pick up a copy of “Kettlebell RX: The Complete Guide for Athletes and Coaches.” Kettlebell RX contains more than a thousand color photos demonstrating proper technique, teaching sequences and how to detect and correct common errors.
Body Sculpting with Kettlebells for Women: Over 50 Total Body Exercises (Body Sculpting Bible)
by Lorna Kleidman
Save time on your workouts and look better than ever!
Unlike traditional dumbbells, the kettlebell’s center of mass is extended beyond the hand. Because more muscle groups are utilized in the swinging and movement of a kettlebell than during the lifting of dumbbells, a kettlebell workout is more effective, and yields better results in less time. The momentum generated by the kettlebell also reduces stress on the joints and minimizes the chance for injury.
While the general public is starting to catch on to the power of the kettlebell, many kettlebell books on the market merely feature exercises for dumbbells, substituting the dumbbells with a kettlebell. This approach fails to maximize the efficacy and fun of the kettlebell as a workout tool.
