Sep 07, Cody Lasko rated it it was amazing. Steve Cotter is one of the best in the business and so is this book. Dec 31, Svetlana rated it really liked it. Rather than reviewing them separately I will compare them.
I will start with positives. Enter the KB book is a very good starter for 10 for anyone looking to start KB-ing.
The structure of the book is quite good and suggestions for programmes are very useful. The Russian KB challenge has a lot more exercises than Enter the KB book and has some more general tips on making your own programme.
Now for the negatives. And a lot of it! The Russian KB challenge is especially bad in that regard. It has some useful cktter after all.
Enter the KB is a later book and it is visibly better edited and polished. It still has some fluffy passages but they rraining not distract from the main message of the book. Again, the later book – Enter the KB — is not as bad as the Russian KB challenge but it is still there although it is easier to ignore it there, especially after reading the Russian KB challenge first: I would also have liked a bit more detail on some exercises, especially in the Russian KB challenge book.
If you have seen even one youtube clip with Cotter you will know one thing about him- he does love to talk and explain things in a tremendous amount of detail. His book is no exception. Cotter goes over goal setting, warm-up and cool-down exercises, he covers a very wide range of KB exercises with a huge amount of detail, good photos and very very long explanations.
So a clear winner then? I am not new to KB but even I struggled to understand his explanations even keettlebell exercises I know well. Cotter uses a lot of anatomical jargon and since I am not familiar with how most muscles or bones in human body are called I struggled at times to visualise his instructions. He does have a lot of stuff on youtube so that helps but then one may ask what the point of buying a book is.
Overall I struggle to recommend one author over the other. Of course there may be even better books out there. One thing for sure, they do make one more enthusiastic about KB training. This book was obtained via the Goodreads Giveaways in exchange for ssteve review.
Steve Cotter – Kettlebell Training – a Review
My steev to the author for taking so long to read and review it. So, I got my tiny kettlfbell kettlebell as a credit card reward about a year ago and haven’t done much with it. It came with a video and I looked up some other kettlebell sites, played with it a few times, and then set it aside to focus on other training goals when I won this book.
Naturally, I should’ve read it right then instead of letting i Disclaimer: Naturally, I should’ve read it right then instead cktter letting it sit for months. Cotter has written the definitive book on kettlebell votter. Opening with a discussion on the values of using this equipment over others, he quickly gets to the heart of the matter beginning with the proper form for everything from how to hold and chalk your bell to a proper warm-up routine to practicing each classic lift with easier equipment before mixing in the challenge of a big weight.
All the exercises are well documented with photos of each step and well-written descriptions that break down each exercise into a series of movements with proper breathing techniques included.
Each exercise is also followed with bullet points of key steps as well as common traihing and their corrections. There are also chapters on how to create a training plan, set goals, and some basic nutrition. Are you a real athlete already?
Steve Cotter’s Kettlebell Workout — My Workout Plans
Don’t worry, there’s also intermediate and advanced exercises with the same information and advice as stated above. The last few chapters provide sample training plans for both general goals e.
Overall, one of the best books for anyone interested in incorporating kettlebells into their exercise routine regardless of your fitness level. My only suggestion for a future edition would be to include either a website or a DVD with videos of the exercises as the book is unwieldy to consult while attempting to exercise. Copying the pages you want to use may be the best solution. Dec 11, Fallon rated it it was ok. I trianing this as a goodreads giveaway. I have to say I expected alot more.
I was raised by a fitness trainer and was ver interested in this cover and description. Yes the cover is all colorful but the whole book corter is black and white and the pictures dont even have nice shading to them they look like washed out newspaper articles.
I would never spend There wee traininf helpful hints and suggestions in this book but the 95 kettlebell exercises they mention not even half of t I received this as a goodreads giveaway. There wee nice helpful hints and suggestions in this book but the 95 kettlebell exercises they mention not even half of them use kettlebells.
If you are a beginner in using any form of working out then this is for you, but if you are regular in exercising then this is a let down. May 25, Ellen rated it really liked it Shelves: Lots of detail for beginners, which is good for people just getting into training and cotte know much.
The book has a good amount of warm-up moves, a good range of basic moves that range from beginner to advanced, and a decent amount of workout examples for various goals and sports, as well as kettleblel to create your own.
In my opinion, this is a better book than the Pavel book, although that one is good for different reasons. Nov 26, Cotte rated it liked it.
