Ader kettlebell review
well cast, and very good finish on these kettlebell. Not slick like some I have used. wider bottom without the rubber stopper, which I prefer as it gives the user a more solid platform while doing pushups/renegade pulls.

Thank you : Ader Kettlebells  .

About the Author
Pavel Tsatsouline, Master of Sports a former Soviet Special Forces physical training instructor who has been called the modern king of kettlebells for starting the Russian kettlebell revolution in the West. In 1998 Pavel introduced the ancient Russian strength and conditioning tool to the American public in his subversive article, Vodka, Pickle Juice, Kettlebell Lifting, and Other Russian Pastimes. The article was published by MILO, a magazine for tough hombres who bend steel and lift rocks. When Pavel started getting mail from guys with busted noses, cauliflower ears, scars, or at least Hell s Angels tattoos his publisher took notice. In 2001 Dragon Door published Pavel’s book The Russian Kettlebell Challenge and forged the first US made Russian style cast iron kettlebell. RKCTM, the first kettlebell instructor course on American soil, kicked off. Finally Pavel, a kettlebell in his fist, was voted the ‘Hot Trainer’ by Rolling Stone. As the kettlebell invasion gained momentum Pavel appeared in media ranging from Pravda to Fox News. Given the kettlebell s harsh reputation, Pavel s early students looked like they came from the federal witness protection program. Today these hard living men have to begrudgingly share the Russian kettlebell with Hollywood movie stars and other unlikely kettlebellers. Fed up with the touchy-feely drivel that was passed as fitness advice, smart folks have gone hardcore. In 2004 Dr. Randall Strossen, one of the most respected names in the strength world, stated, “In our eyes, Pavel Tsatsouline will always reign as the modern king of kettlebells since it was he who popularized them to the point where you could almost found a country filled with his converts…

This is “The” exercise equipment.
Everything that you have been promised in exercise equipment in one small package. Don’t let the simplicity of this item mislead you. The Kettlebell really does work the full body. Not only in the obvious way of lifting and swinging but working muscles other devices don’t get as close to. The benefits are: an increase in core and limb strength, flexibility and a full aerobic workout. And you only need one!

The offset design of the kettlebell requires use of smaller supporting muscles that stablize the limbs and body. Try it and you’ll feel the difference immediately. You’ll also develop a real respect for what it does and the effort it gets from you.

The accompanying DVD is very clear and professionally produced. It’s all you need to get a good start. Again, don’t be misled, the 34 min. running time works you through every step of the beginning exercises that will keep you working for a couple weeks to get proficient. By then you will have noticed increased muscle tone, stamina and strength.

A word about quality. I’ve compared makes and this is the best. The smooth metal handle is easy on your hands and a perfect size grip. The dipped vynl covering is attactively colored and easy on the floor, furniture, kids, whatever. It’s almost decorator styled.

This Part 2 of a 2 part article series covering the top 10 reasons kettlebells are relevant fitness tool for almost any fitness program.

6. Athletic Conditioning :

a. Kettlebells are incredibly mobile, much easier to have available while conditioning or even at skills practice.

b. Kettlebells provide valuable variety in conjunction with speed, agility, endurance, and quickness work.

c. Additionally, what athlete couldn’t use a little development of hip drive along with learning to accelerate and decelerate load?

These are some of my favorite athletic conditioning drill and kettlbell combinations:

-Two-handed Swing + Hill Sprint

-Snatch + Suicides/Ladders

-Horn Squat and Press + Squat Thrust with Jump

-Cleans + Box Agility Drill

7. Strength Development – One of the knocks on kettlebells has always been that “they are good for conditioning but poor for strength development.” This argument becomes pretty much a moot point when you run into the likes of Steve Cotter and Mike Mahler, both of whom are pretty damn strong guys. Of course, then the argument becomes that it doesn’t transfer. Again, the answer is that it does transfer. Coach Ken Black was recently here in Phoenix and did some strongman training. He was easily able to lap a 300 lb stone and flip a 900 lb tire for several reps. Not too bad for the first time on both implements. By the way, Ken does the majority of his training with kettlebells. Are kettlebells going to make you a 600 lb bench presser or a 1000 lb squatter? Probably not. However, for the majority of people out there who want to look good “nekkid” and have a good amount of strength to boot, there is definitely merit in using kettlebells for strength training. Given that kettlebells are available for a good price up to and beyond 105 lbs, most guys will be able find a bell that provides more than adequate load stimulus.

8. Unilateral Lifting – The traditional programming for the kettlebell is unilateral. One-arm cleans and snatches are the basis of a lot of kettlebell work, but that is just the start. Two of the most compelling reasons for performing unilateral kettlebell lifts are:

a. The carrying position of the load while performing press drills allows the shoulder girdle to open up which is very beneficial in this day and age of shit posture. Anything you can do to work against a kyphotic upper back posture is huge.

b. The height at which the kettlebell hand is held when performing drills such as the single deadlift is perfect for quick and smooth transitions through a workout. When performed in a traditional manner, single leg squats or pistols place a massive demand on the trunk to provide stability throughout the entire movement.

Want more unilateral movement and trunk stabilization?

Perform some one-arm cleans and snatches using a kettlebell. You’ll have it figured out after just a few reps. Sure, all these drills can be performed with dumbbells, but they are definitely enhanced when performed with kettlebells, enough to warrant their consideration.

9. Easy Grip Strengthening – About 90% of the people who walk through the door to my facility have the grip strength of a nine year old girl. The kettlebell is a very appropriate tool for improving grip strength because the handle gets incrementally thicker as the weight gets heavier. This works perfectly. As clients get progressively stronger, they are challenged with thicker handles. One of my favorite introductory drills that kills two birds with one stone is the kettlebell farmer’s walk; simple yet very effective at accomplishing several training goals at once.

10. Only One Priority – Whether you are a coach or someone training hard for a particular goal, there is only one thing that matters – Getting Results. The majority of trainees with whom I have contact are very novice and the mere sight of a barbell could send them running out the door and leave me with an empty pocketbook. In contrast, I can have clients deadlifting, squatting, pressing, and sometimes even cleaning or snatching a kettlebell within one or two sessions. To me the sacrifice of the barbell is well worth it, not only from the business aspect, but also because my clients lay down a solid base of good technique due to the aforementioned benefits of using kettlebells. Does this mean I have thrown out my barbell? Hell no! It does mean, however, I have learned a new way to skin a cat. A faster tool to teach = faster results. And that’s what really matters to me, and to my clients. (Note: Most women do well starting with a 12 kg/26 lb bell and a somewhat experienced male could start with a 24 kg/53 lb bell).

Could you and I argue the pros and cons of kettlebell training until we were both blue in the face? Yes, and we probably wouldn’t come close to a consensus. Do you need to own as many kettlebells as I do? Probably not. But you would be ignoring a very valuable training tool if you didn’t at least consider having kettlebells in your training toolbox. In addition to everything that I have discussed here, it’s a well-documented fact that kettlebells can help you become bigger, faster, stronger, and more athletic. I am pretty sure each and every one of us is looking to develop at least one of those aspects with our various training programs.

They say first impressions last the longest. In the case of kettlebells, my first impression was way off. I was formally introduced to kettlebells about three years ago by my colleague Josh Henkin during one of our weekend training sessions. My wife got hooked on them and almost immediately started looking for them on eBay. To say I was a little hesitant about kettlebells would be an understatement. As a matter of fact, when I learned that she had purchased a pair of 12 kg kettlebells, I believe my comment was something like, “You can do the exact same thing with dumbbells.”

My how things have changed. I now have at least 10 kettlebells in my facility and will probably add a few more in the relatively near future. I also drag around another six or so in my truck for my outdoor fitness camps. I’m sure some of you are thinking that I have gone and drunk the proverbial kool-aid.

No, what actually happened was I realized two things.

1. All of the best coaches that I know use them for many different types of clients. Whether they’re coaching for athletic development, fat-loss, powerlifting or hypertrophy, you will likely see kettlebells being used during some portion of a training day. There must be some merit to the implement if all those guys use them with their clients.

2. As a coach and businessman, I can’t afford to ignore such a versatile implement. I have a limited amount of square footage and a limited budget so it is important for me to invest in equipment that I can get a lot out of in a small amount of space.

In other words, kettlebells are just too big a deal and too good a tool to ignore. Whether you are a fitness competitor or a powerlifter, there are many reasons you should at least consider kettlebells. These are my top 10:

1. Pound for pound they are the best piece of home equipment you can purchase. Not nearly as expensive, and they take up a helluva a lot less space than the “clothes hanger” err… treadmill many of you have. For a modest investment, you can get a kettlebell, an instructional DVD, and probably one or two sessions with a local instructor – a much more effective start to a fitness program than “some assembly required.”

2. Price Point – They say duplication is the highest form of flattery. Well, that must be true in the case of kettlebells. It used to be that you could only get kettlebells at Dragon Door. Now there are no fewer than a half-dozen other distributors out there. Are they all the same quality bell? No, but if you do a little research and ask around, you can find out who is selling the best bell at the best price.

3. Instant Feedback Loop – One of the keys to coaching is having the client/athlete understand the difference between proper and improper technique. With the kettlebell, drills such as cleans and snatches provide clients/athletes with instant feedback. The way the kettlebell falls gives them a not so subtle reminder of their improper technique, and after a workout or two, they won’t have any trouble with the technique at all.

4. Teach Olympic Lifts Fast – The bane of teaching Olympic lifting has always been that the lifts are difficult to teach. Kettlebells make an excellent segue. Not only can you teach variants of the Olympic lifts but things can be taken back a notch farther. One of the first things you learn, even in the most basic kettlebell drills, is hip drive.

5. Great for Fat-Loss – I don’t know if there is a better, more easily learned drill than a two-handed kettlebell swing. There are so many different complexes available that the opportunities for ass-kicking fat-loss work are endless. If you could do only one drill, this is it because what you need for fat-loss is to move a load for as long as possible. That’s exactly what kettlebells allow you to do and you can add some speed as well.

It seems most people today are uninformed when it comes to exercising and still seem to be slogging it out at gyms and getting little back in return. Exercising correctly for fat loss isn’t difficult and certainly doesn’t require hours at a gym or elaborate and expensive equipment. In fact, you can achieve much quicker results using no equipment at all and just exercising at home using just your own bodyweight. Here’s why you should change you thinking when it comes to reaching for the nearest piece of exercise equipment:

Bodyweight exercises get quicker results

Training using just your bodyweight is more demanding than you may think and forces your body to naturally stabilise itself utilising more muscles. Using more muscles means that you burn more calories as each individual muscle requires energy to work. Why spend time exercising just a few muscles when you can hit over 600 of them at a time?

Moreover, if bodyweight exercises are performed at the correct intensity you can create lots of EPOC (Excess Post-exercise Oxygen Consumpion) leading to fat burning for up to 48 hours after exercise. With only so many hours in the day and limited amounts of workout time the more calories you can burn after exercise the better. If performed at the correct times it is possible to raise your metabolism and be burning calories constantly throughout the week whilst only training 3 times for 20 minutes.

Bodyweight exercises are natural & safe

From the first few months that we are born we start learning how to control and use our own bodyweight, this includes rolling over, moving around on all fours standing up, balancing on one leg, walking, running, climbing etc. During all these times of evolution we never once use external resistance to get stronger; it is only in later life that we look for alternatives or short cuts to improving our health.

Development through pure bodyweight exercise is the most natural form of exercise that you can do and your body will reward you for it. You will improve your balance, strength, burn unwanted fat and energise yourself all without risk of injury because it is natural. Being able to control, balance, and move your own bodyweight is the most natural thing that you can do. Anybody that cannot take control of their own bodyweight has no right even considering lifting a weight, whether that’s a dumbbell, barbell, ankle weight, medicine ball or kettlebell !

Bodyweight workouts are less time consuming

Let’s be honest who wants to be make their way to a gym, find parking, get changed, deal with all the distractions, sort out lockers etc. Bodyweight training requires no equipment and can be done at home or during your lunch break or whilst on holiday in only 20 minutes. This not only means that it is less time consuming but also you are less likely to make up excuses as to why you can’t workout that day. With bodyweight training there are no excuses, no matter where you are!! You have a training program for life!!

If you are going to the gym and spending too much time while not getting the results you deserve, then you probably aren’t using the right exercises.Over my 16 years of training and training men and women for fat loss, I’ve stumbled across the “Big 5” movements that must be used in a total-body fat burning, muscle-building workout.

The “Big 5” movements are guaranteed to boost your metabolism and help you lose belly fat. If you don’t have these types of exercises in your program, then you are wasting your time and money when trying to lose fat.

So I designed this workout around the Big 5, and put them into a circuit to help you get more results in less time. But first, let’s go over the Big 5 fat burning exercises…

Actually, let me clarify something. The Big 5 are not specific exercises. Instead, they are specific movements, but this allows for a huge number of exercises to be used, and therefore a lot of variety in your workouts. And don’t forget, variety is one of the 3 main principles that explain why the short, burst exercise workouts work so well.

Here are the Big 5 movements, starting with the most important of them all.

1) Squat movements

This could be a barbell squat to a dumbbell squat, it could be a deadlift because that’s the same type of movement, or it could even be a kettlebell or dumbbell swing, which is becoming a very popular exercise these days.

Kettlebells are becoming more popular for fat-burning because it’s just that movement of pushing your hips back, bending you knees, and dropping your body. You’re moving your entire body there.

The squat movement allows you to do a lot of mechanical work which is one of the keys to burning a lot of calories. So that’s the first movement in the “Big 5”. Always start your Big 5 workouts with a squat.

Please note: Lunges and split-squats also qualify as a “Squat-type” movement, even though you will also be able to use them in the Single-Leg Exercise category below. Sometimes the lines blur between movement types for such great multi-muscle exercises.

2) Pushing exercises

The next exercise to use is any type of push-up or dumbbell press or bench press or even standing shoulder press. Again, very large amount of muscle to be used in those exercises that burn a lot of calories.

Plus, using the “non-compete” principle of the short, burst exercises, by using a pushing exercise next, we let our leg muscles recover (and often our grip strength too, depending on the first movement used).

3) Pulling exercises

The next movement is any type of pulling exercise, so it could be rowing or pull-ups, dumbbell rows, seated rows, anything in a pulling motion is going to work a lot of musculature so a lot of your upper back, some of your arms, your lats, and even a little bit of your lower back if you keep that – by holding yourself in that static upright position.

This is a powerful fat burning, muscle-building movement. You could even use the deadlift at this time because it is a pulling movement. Again, often the lines blur between movement types for such great multi-muscle exercises.

And at this time, you’d have gotten about 80-90% of your results. So if you are really crunched for time, you could stick to only the first 3 movement patterns. But if you want to put the finishing touches on your body and rev up your metabolism even more, then you’ll need the last 2 pieces of the Big 5 circuit.

4) Single leg exercises

This could be a dumbbell lunge or split squat or a reverse lunge or a single leg squat, anything that works one leg at a time. Because you’re using the lower body, it’s a lot of musculature.

This is a tricky movement to do right after the Pulling movement, because your grip strength will be fatigued from the rowing or chin-ups or whatever you did. So try to use a bodyweight only single-leg exercise, such as the 1- leg squat or 1-leg lying hip extension.

This would also be a great place for a single-leg stability ball leg curl, or a single-leg exercise holding the barbell across your back. If you must use a dumbell exercise, choose the Bulgarian Split Squat or DB Step-up because less weight is needed than for lunges or split squats (and therefore less competition for grip occurs).

5) Total body ab exercises

The final movement in the Big 5 circuit could be anything from a mountain climber to a stability ball rollout, it could be using the old infomercial gadget – the Ab Wheel since that works great – or it could be a hanging knee raise. Alternatives include cable chops and cable crunches if you have access to cables in a gym.

But you’ll notice these aren’t just basic crunches. Instead, you’re working your arms, legs, and torso. That’s why you must use a total-body ab exercise to finish off the Big 5 circuit workout.

Those are all the exercises that you could use for the Big 5 movements.

Fortunately, you have an endless variety of exercises and set-ups that you can choose.

If you did those exercises, you would have a total body workout, you’d have an incredible muscle-building, fat-burning, metabolism-boosting training session and if you did that type of stuff 3 days per week and maybe did your interval training after each circuit you’d lose a lot of belly fat. Man, it would just melt right off!

That’s my Big 5 exercise movement system for building a better body.

If you want to burn fat, you want to build muscle, and you want results that are absolutely guaranteed, implement the Big 5 into your workout today.

To recap, here are the Big 5 Movements:

Squat

Push

Pull

Single Leg Exercise

Total Body Ab Exercise
