Kettlebody by Brook Workout Details and Review
Kettlebody by Brook is a collection of three complete thirty-minute workouts – Cardio Kettlebell, Yoga Burn and Bell Body Sculpt – in one great package. Cardio Kettlebell is a cardio, power and strength workout; Yogaburn, a fusion of Power Yoga with Athletic Conditioning; and Bell Body Sculpt is a full-body toning workout that uses bodyweight and a kettlebell. Led by instructor Brook Benten, each of the workouts provides an intense workout that will challenge even the most advanced exerciser. Brook is joined in the workout by two background exercisers, one of which shows a more advanced modification while Brook sticks with a more intermediate level. For the workout you will need a kettlebell, for the kettlebell workouts, and an exercise mat, for the yoga workout.
Kettlebody by Brook – Cardio Kettlebell is a non-stop thirty minute workout that utilizes a light kettlebell to provide an intense cardiovascular workout. The main menu options include Play All, Introduction, Safety and Technique, Cardio Kettlebell Workout, Cool Down and Credits. In the Introduction, Brook explains how the Kettlebody by Brook program should be used to achieve maximum results. During Safety and Technique Brook, accompanied by the two background exercisers, demonstrate proper form for the exercises in the workout including basic squats, swings and lunges with a kettlebell exchange.
Kettlebody by Brook – Cardio Kettlebell begins with halos to start the warm-up. Brook then begins adding in squats, lunges and overhead presses alternated with the halos to gradually increase the heart rate. After the thorough warm-up, it’s time for swings. Using a mix of double arm swings, single arm swings, alternating swings, squats, shoulder presses and wood chops Brook quickly and effectively accelerates the heart rate. The workout then flows into a tough lunge sequence – side, front and with a kettlebell pass – built up on one-side and then repeated on the other with swings and mountain climbers sandwiched in between. She finishes the workout off with a super set of swings with plies and abductions to zero in on the inner and outer thighs. The workout concludes with an aerobic cool down and an invigorating stretch segment.
Kettlebody by Brook – Cardio Kettlebell is a fun, non-stop cardiovascular kettlebell workout. The workout keeps the heart rate pumping, muscles on fire and energy level up. The use of the kettlebell increases the cardio intensity while toning the upper and lower body at the same time. Brook Benten is an engaging lead, has a great personality and is extremely motivating. She cues well throughout the workout and shares plenty of tips and form pointers. She encourages the exerciser to work at his/her own pace and to listen to their body.
