Kettlebody By Brook: Cardio Kettlebell Review



Review: Kettlebody by Brook: Cardio Kettlebell
Brook Benten, 2011 

This is a 30 minute cardio kettlebell routine led by Brook in a nice open studio w/ cute lime green curtains in the background. Brook works out w/ 2 backgrounders and provides power or lower impact modifications for many of the exercises. You will only need a kettlebell for this workout (I used a 10# dumbbell). 

Exercises include: halo, squat & OH press, side lunge & squat w/ woodchop, walking lunges w/ a pass through, suit case squats w/ a hop, kettlebell swings, 1 arm swings, squat-hop-Mt. climber combo, kettlebell swing & outer thigh raise, swing & travel pliet, etc. 

I would rate this a solid to high intermediate workout that has almost NO impact- love that as my knees cant always take a high impact workout but I love high intensity! The pace of this workout is great and it really moves right along. I like the 25 minute time frame- it makes this nonstop workout totally do-able, great as a stand alone or to add on to other workouts. I love Brook- great cuing, great form & pointers, great energy. Will be looking out for more from her!!!! You could easily heavy up and use this as a strength workout- very versatile. I received this dvd to review.
