KB2 stands for Kettlebells/Kickboxing Squared (I think) and it is a kickboxing/kettlebell workout by Amy Bento. I really, really wanted this to be an awesome, dream workout. Unfortunately, it was not. It has possibilities but it was not what I was hoping for. I really love kettlebell work and kickboxing, so just like when I … Continue reading KB2

Kettlebell Dynamics

Kettlebell Dynamics is an interesting collection of kettlebell combos. I'm not really sure what to think about it. Amy Bento is a new-to-me trainer who I have, so far, really liked. This workout however, is rather humdrum. I'm a little worried now, too. I loved her two pure strength training workouts so much (Slo-Mo Strength … Continue reading Kettlebell Dynamics

Slo-Mo Strength Challenge is 3 tough and advanced strength workouts by Amy Bento. These are the first workouts I've tried by Amy and I really like them.

Jillian Michaels BodyShred

I have been very impatiently awaiting Jillian's BodyShred program! And now that I own it, I look at it with some trepidation. The trailer for it looks scary hard. But I am up for the challenge! BodyShred is the next step after Body Revolution. Body Revolution had 3 stages--beginner, intermediate and advanced. And the advanced … Continue reading Jillian Michaels BodyShred
