value for money!

right down to really get a look at the details too.
it, much cheaper than a DVD, plus Andrey will always
give a little advice!
Encyclopedia of KB Exercises is a real pleasure
to study, and one heck of a bargain for the money.
format seems ideal -- usually when I buy training
DVD's, I wish there were some more in-depth explanations, and
when I buy books, I wish I could see the action performed. Generally
I'll wind up buying both so one can make up for what the other
And of course dropping a lot of money on what is really a single
product covering the same exercises.
Encyclopedia gave me both written instruction and,
right above that, videos showing the movements,
all in one place at the same time. It's easy to glance back and
forth between the two to keep things clear. And it's all very
adjustable, to personalize and pace the studying -- you can make
the letters large and very easy to read, and you can pause
the videos, run them in slow motion,
rewind them in increments, or just
watch them loop until you feel like
you've gotten the essence of the movements and are ready to go
try them out.
there are a lot to try out, from the presses, swings, cleans,
and snatches one might expect, to kettlebell variations of more
familiar weightlifting exercises, to unusual variations like the
Side Snatch, Two Hands Anyhow, Waiter's Press, and even some juggling.
Andrey's girevoy sport background makes his version of some of
these exercises slightly different from the ones you might see
elsewhere, and that adds a little extra to the learning experience
in all, I really got a lot out of the Encyclopedia,
including a happy sense of surprise
that there were still so many ways to use kettlebells that I didn't
know even after buying multiple KB books and videos previously.
The encyclopedia didn't just teach me; it reminded me to keep
looking for new ways to have fun and challenge myself with kettlebells.
has employed typical Russian ingenuity to devise a simple and
easy to use, yet sophisticated and comprehensive training aide.
The program provides a quick and convenient solution to learning
and mastering the many kettlebell exercises. By watching an expert
in action you can appreciate the subtleties of technique vital
to safely mastering the drills. There is no substitute for practise
, and the range of exercises presented enable infinitely varied
freestyle workouts which can be tailored according to the girevik's
ambitions. Novices and intermediate lifters will feast on a smorgasbord
of exercises whilst advanced users will appreciate the breadth
of material which can be incorporated into an efficient cross-training
schedule . Thanks Andrey for keeping the fun in strength fitness
, and for presenting the material in such an easy-to-use format.
KB exercise encyclopedia is the best real world reference
guide I have ever used. You can break down each movement
frame by frame and perfect your form on all key kettlebell exercises.
It is amazing to see how effortless Andrey makes the exercises
look. I have purchased many products over the years. The
KB exercise encyclopedia is worth it's weight in gold.

first thing that strikes one is the originality of the format
itself, one can view the video clips while reading the
instructions, i think this is the kind of format one
looks for while buying softcopies of the physical instruction
books, without requiring to buy a separate video tape to see in
action whatever has been written in text. There are also buttons
for playback and controlling the speed of the clips.
a lot of kb exercises(60 plus!!!), and some of them like external
snatch,side snatch were completely new to me , also has some juggling
videos(really awesome) - as all of us familiar with his
work know he is really strong and a master at his craft.
I found his
instructions to the point and the video clips demonstrates the
ideal form (though i suppose some of the purists in this forum
would be taken aback watching him curl a kbell ). He has mentioned
breath synchronization methods as well(important in my
opinion)for each exercise.
In my opinion
a very good product in every way( presentation , content and cost
)and i hope to see more products in such formats
is very impressive,
The best part of it is you have a well organized interphase
Easy to find the video demo of the excercise you want
The content has most of the kettlebell excercies I have
seen or heard
of, I think only "windmills" is not on the list!
program is excellent,
so easy to use helps me to "properly" include some extra
is a fantastic product Andrey, very innovative
very easy to use
Keep up the good work
have bought Andrey's program and I'm very satisfied with
I have bought
many books and informations about kettlebells before, they have
all their worth, but this program is different: because you get
in-depth description of so many kb-movements together with videos
where you can turn the speed so slow that you get pictures of
every sequence of the movement.
many details that were new to me. I definitely recommend Andrey's
I would like to take a moment of your time to comment on the quality
of the kettlebell exercise film/manual that I recently purchased
The format is interesting and unique! I found the text
description of the exercises in combination with the video example
to be a well thought out concept. With the ability to
slow the images down to frame by frame speed, it is easy to
study technique in detail. While I find personal instruction
the very best way to learn, this format should be a close second...
I have already picked up on some intricacies of technique which
should be of great benefit in my training. Thank you
for an excellent product, and a true bargain!
new online video showing 63 exercises kettlebell exercise looks
I will be going through it on a regular basis; the site is very
professional and will be a tremendous resource for me.
The price is exceptionally good! This is an excellent value!
As a certified personal trainer and personal defense instructor,
I would highly recommend it.
Thank you again for making this available.
I really like
it. The written explanation that's goes with each exercise
is a good idea, and also I like that you can freeze the video
and go forwards/backwards frame by frame if you want a close look
at a detail.
I can see
great value in this program, especially for beginners
just starting out with kettlebells, but also for the more advanced
lifter who wants to add new exercises to his repertoire.
