Angie Miller Kettlebell Bootcamp Review

Today's Review: Kettlebell Bootcamp
Angie Miller, 2009

Angie leads this 54 minute workout in a cute pink set with wooden floors. She works out with a background exerciser who offers less intense modifications. You will only need a kettlebell for this workout; Angie uses a 15 lb bell (I used a 15-25 lb dumbbell). The dvd is chaptered very well so you can choose which segments you want to do or play all.

This is a full body kettlebell workout that will work your muscles and also get your heart rate up. The workout includes standing kettlebell work and concludes on the floor with pushups, core work, and a stretch. The pace is slow enough to go deep in your lower body exercises but not so slow to be considered isometric and yet still quick enough to get the heart pumping!

Exercises include: double arm swing, deep curtsy dip w/ a torso twist, lunge & row, KB torso twist, KB swing w/ a ham curl, squat variations, KB swing w/ a side leg lift, windmill, OH press, French press & knee lifts, dip & KB pass through, halo w/ a torso twist, single arm swing, deadlift, picking the KB off the floor w/ a balance rear leg lift, pushups, full body crunch, V twists, sit up w/ a KB raise, and concludes with a stretch.

I would rate this an intermediate workout that can be adjusted to fit the needs of most exercisers. Angie does a great job of adding twists to traditional kettlebell moves to really get the most out of your workout hour! She provides plenty of combo moves to get the heart rate up and adds in tempo variations & balance challenges to keep things interesting. I received this dvd to review.
