My review of Kettlenetics - kb elements and flowmotion

Monday, August 08, 2011

I bought the Kettlenetics Slim and Tone DVD and 4lb Kettlebell set a month ago and finally got round to trying it out.

I did the kb elements, which is a 20 min video of the instructor, Michelle Khai, explaining her signature moves used in her workouts. I've never used a kettlebell before and found some of these moves really got me puffing! I then tried the 20 min workout that came with the set, which is called flowmotion. It was tough! You would think it might be easy lifting a 4lb weight (I've lifted a lot more in things like Chalean's Extreme but they are different types of workouts with different aims and ways of doing things), but I had to stop sometimes to catch my breath.

There are a lot of squats and lunges so it should help tone my lower half, which is my weakest area. It also involves twists at the waist including the kettlebell, so hopefully that will tone up my abs as well!

Here's a pic of me after the workout - v. sweaty!

    Thanks for sharing. I've been thinking about getting a kettlebell workout. Since this is only 20 minutes, I might just give it a shot.

    I just got the same kettlebell and dvds. Yes, it's quite a workout. I am glad I bought it. I see you are also working on the c25k program too. I enjoy doing that on the less humid days. Best Wishes.

    Good to know! I've seen this advertised and I've wondered if it was as good as they claim. Thanks for posting!
