the exercises are okay and if you have done any other 10 minute solution video you know what to expect. I was extremely disappointed in the video as it is targetted as a kettlebell video yet the instructor uses a standard weight to do all the exercises. She does explain how to hold the kettlebell if in fact you are using one. This video is deemed a kettlebell workout - I believe the instructor should be using a kettlebell not just explaining how to use it.

I bought the video because I wanted a kettle bell program. Even as I own kettle bells I found that It was almost better to find my dumbbell since that was what she was using and the kettle bell did not quite fit her exercises. I think this would be an OK DVD if you have dumbbells at home and want to learn about the kettle bell moves, but don't buy it if you are planning on using your kettle bells.

This is a terrible DVD - it does not contain any kettlebell content. There is a kettlebell on the cover, but you won't find any in the video...

I researched this workout DVD in advance, so I knew that the exercises are performed using a dumbbell, that is why I purchased this exercise DVD. However they do tell people how to hold a kettlebell. I do not even own any kettle bells, and the dumbbells that I do own are ones with bar and removable plates. There are 5 ten minute workouts on this DVD to chose from or combine any number of the workouts or play all for 50 minutes.

Note: The exercises might get tough with plate dumbbells especially since it is difficult to find plates lighter than 2.5 pounds, however Clubpiscine had 1.25 pound plates. Do what you are capable of in time and weight and incrementally increase time and weight gradually.

I get a great physical workout from this exercise DVD.

Good price.

HASH(0xa539b9cc) out of 5 stars Useless for KB owners - and potentially dangerous Feb. 16 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The most annoying thing - as previously mentioned - is that there's no kettlebell. (It would have been much better if there was at least another person in the video using a kettlebell.)

So here's a few challenges that make this almost useless for those who want to use a kettlebell with this DVD:

1. Olson uses weight-training names to approximate kettlebell moves. For example, she says "curls" when the nearest kettlebell equivalent to what she's doing is a "clean." And of course because she's using a dumbell, a curl is exactly what she's doing. (A curl is a straight hinge motion, where a clean includes a twisting motion.)

If you know kettlebells, you know how to do a clean so it's just annoying. But if you're using this DVD and you're new to kettlebells, substitutions like these can be confusing and possibly lead to injury.

2. The other big challenge is the pace. Since she's using a light dumbell, the pace of each move is way too fast for kettlebell users. A kettlebell is an offset, usually-heavier weight, not a light, balanced weight, and to try to keep pace with her on this DVD can be downright dangerous.

Some kettlebell moves, like an overhead press starting with the weight held low, usually have an intermediate step where you rack the kettlebell before you press it up. This little extra step makes the overall move take slightly longer but keeps you in control of the weight. But because she's using a dumbbell, she never racks the weight first, so keeping pace with her can cause someone to get sloppy - and get hurt.

I've honestly tried - repeatedly - to like this DVD, but finally gave up. It's not worth getting hurt over. All in all this was a great concept but very poorly executed.

HASH(0xa4f8e348) out of 5 stars Good introduction to kettlebell March 4 2011
By Savannah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I had decided to try this at first with regular weights, and then see if I liked using the kettlebell enough to purchase one. Either way, with regular hand weights or with a kettlebell, it works great. There are five 10 minute workouts: Maximum heart burner, Upper body power sculpt, Thigh & Buns Blaster, Total body sculpt, Accelerated Ab toner.

I really enjoy Michelle Olson and I dare say that I enjoy her much more than some of the other 10 Minute Solution instructors. I own six of the 10 Minute Solution DVD's including this one. At the beginning introductory dialogue, I can tell she is a little nervous. To me that's okay, I actually like it. It means that she's a little more relateable than other instructors, who overdramatize themselves once the camera starts rolling. There are no "backup dancers" which I absolutely enjoy and that is indicative of any of the 10 Minute Solution workouts. Michelle does the entire workout with you. She gives great cues and explains the moves well - I can tell she wants to prevent any kind of injury and is concious of it without being annoying. I think she does a better job of this than the other 10 Minute Solution instructors I currently own. She communicates well and if she had other workouts available, I would purchase them.

The ab toner is great for beginners. It's challenging, not like Ab X challenging, but you will still feel it the next day until you get used to it. My two favorites are the first two - Maximum fat burner and Upper body power sculpt.

For three months, I did a variance of three of the workouts 5 days a week after doing 20-30 minutes of treadmill beforehand (1 minute slower, 1 minute fast and the last two minutes fast). Then I began P90X and found P90X to be challenging but I wasn't very sore the next day, like my co-workers were, who had begun that program without much exercise beforehand. This is a great overall workout, you will not only deveop your arms but your chest and back - as well as your thigh muscles. If you have really bad knees, then modify the moves if you can to build enough momentum to use as one action with the kettlebell.

If you like kettlebell or want to begin, this is a great DVD to do it with.

HASH(0xa4e98d20) out of 5 stars B Nissen is correct... Oct. 13 2008
By M. Simpson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is not a kettlebell workout. As much as the makers of the DVD might wish to state that Pavel ok's the exercises without use of a kettlebell, the fact of the matter is that the distribution of the weight is altogether different than it is with a dumbbell. This is NOT a kettlebell workout, there is no kettlebell used in this DVD workout at all. How misleading to put the word "Kettlebell" in the title of the DVD, not to mention the woman on the cover is holding a kettlebell. This is utterly disappointing, and in my opinion unethical. If you want a kettlebell workout, this is not for you. This should have been titled, "Dumbbell fusion functional fitness" or some such. The makers of this DVD should be ashamed of themselves & scrap the DVD release altogether, come up with a new title & a new cover photo. Then perhaps come out with a new KETTLEBELL workout that is ACTUALLY a KETTLEBELL workout.

**UPDATE NOV. 21/08** Clips are now available on some other sites & the form shown on this DVD is AWEFUL ! It's not remotely like a kettlebell workout. For instance her joints are soft & she's using her arms to LIFT the weight while she's doing regular squats when mimicking a snatch, rather than thrusting & locking, not to mention there is virtually no propulsion shown in her movements on various exercises. That's the difference with kettlebell training & regular dumbbell strength training or even functional fitness training. The latter is done the way she demonstrates the movements in the DVD (although even with that said her form isn't that great), but what she is demonstrating, using soft joints & controlled LIFTING with the ARMS, & calling it kettlebell style exercises just ARE NOT REMOTELY the way they are done in kettlebell training. In kettlebell training there is propulsion, swinging, locking of the joints in a controlled manner, etc... Kettlebell exercises are VASTLY different from the way you would do a traditional weight training workout. As shown in this DVD all you're getting is a functional fitness dumbbell workout that is nothing remotely like a kettlebell workout. For instance in exercises where the lower body should propel the weight up, she softens her legs to stop the movement of the weight & then uses her arms to lift the weight. That's fine if you are doing a regular old strength training workout with weights, but that's not the way it's done with a kettlebell. It's bad enough a kettlebell isn't even used in this workout, but the workout is NOT a kettlebell style workout. The only thing kettlebell about it is the word 'kettlebell' in the title & that's it. For God's sake, she doesn't even get the name of some of the exercises correct. She calles the Turkish Get-Up a Turkish roll up, but it's not even done the way she shows it on the DVD anyway !!! As per the early negative reviews, people knew way ahead of time due to leaking of the info by Michele Olson herself (the so called trainer on this DVD) via e-mails between herself & fitness video enthusiasts & what she herself shared on fitness forums in which when she was questioned even more she, probably thinking it was good that she was getting all this attention, told them exactly the things shared in reviews here. Now that clips are available it is glaringly obvious that it is even worse than previous reviewers had stated. There are people on fitness forums who are now cancelling their pre-orders after viewing the clips. It's pretty bad, folks. Save your money.

HASH(0xa50fa864) out of 5 stars This is NOT a kettlebell workout!! Oct. 13 2008
By B Nissen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I've seen information about this dvd on various websites and it does NOT use a kettlebell, despite the picture and title. As per an online post from Michele Olson, the instructor, she "...leads the workout with a dumbbell and gives precise verbal cues if you already own and desire to use your kettlebell." Why would they call this a kettlebell workout and have the instructor pictured with a kettlebell on the cover when she's admitted she doesn't even use one in it??

If you're looking to do "kettlebell-style" moves with a dumbbell, then purchase this dvd but if you're looking for a traditional kettlebell workout, don't waste your money on it.

HASH(0xa5681258) out of 5 stars A great workout July 6 2011
By Kirsten Gamby - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I was so pleasantly surprised when I found this. I love that it has 10 minute bites of exercise that can be combined and together they make a gently challenging workout. I'd gone out and bought a kettlebell (4kg or 9 pounds)specially but don't rush out because all you need is a dumbell and I would recommend you start out smaller like, at the most, 2kg. I found my kettelbell cumbersome and too heavy for the exercises on this DVD. The instructor Michelle Olson is excellent,and she uses a dumbell throughout the routines. It's the kettlebell technique which engages all the muscle groups in the body, that makes this workout effective. I was thinking about getting one of the more expensive kettlebell workout DVD sets, but honestly, I find this well and truly enough!
