Review : The Definitive Guide to Kettlebell Juggling
Written By Scott Bird

This is a brilliant collection.

Comprising no fewer than three content-packed DVDs, Logan Christopher shares a wealth of exercises, variations and training methods in The Definitive Guide to Kettlebell Juggling. It really is essential viewing for anyone looking to get into this amazing activity.

On the first DVD, Logan explains – and demonstrates – nearly 50 Kettlebell Juggling techniques. These are arranged in order of difficulty, providing a clear progression through the list. And if you’re comfortable with basic kettlebell techniques (such as the swing, clean and snatch), you can just dive right in. Superb.

The second DVD takes a look at the various ways to train Kettlebell Juggling. Whether you choose to perfect the basic moves with heavier and heavier bells, or tackle the advanced exercises using a more modest weight; there are a number of ways to perform your Kettlebell Juggling. Everything from timed sets to the many forms of circuit training.

Also on the second DVD is a great look at the many ways to juggle two kettlebells at once. As with the single ‘bell forms, there are a number of specific exercises which are clearly explained and demonstrated. Logan also notes the differences (besides the obvious) between juggling one and two kettlebells.

Finally, the third DVD contains interviews with a couple of guys who are no slouches themselves when it comes to kettlebell work : John Brookfield and Dave Whitley. It’s fantastic to hear their insights into this incredible training style.

Overall, I highly recommend this collection. If you’re looking for a great way to combine your grip sessions and strength conditioning work with a touch of showmanship, you can’t go past The Definitive Guide to Kettlebell Juggling. Brilliant.
