  • Beginners to advanced workouts.
  • How to score AMRAP workouts.
  • Finer details on many of the exercises.

  • Additional ideas on how to make your WODs even more popular and exciting.

“These are not shoddy quick workouts put together for a book. I’ve performed each and every workout listed in this book, and so have hundreds of others.”
—Taco Fleur

This book is called Kettlebell Workouts and Challenges 1.0, so obviously this book is about those workouts and challenges. I will be linking to a lot of external information rather than turning this into a book about kettlebell exercises, and/or technique. I already have several books on those topics. This is not to say that this book does not contain technique or exercise information, but it’s kept to a minimum, illustrated with many photos, while linking to more online info. The title is prefixed with 1.0 as we’ll be putting out plenty more books with new workouts.

BONUS:

  1. Information for trainers on how to run your own Caveman Circuit, and Boot Camp.
  2. Downloadable workout PDF that can be printed and taken to the gym.
  3. Downloadable kettlebell grip PDF that will improve your kettlebell training instantly.
  4. Downloadable PDF that will improve your racking for resting and endurance.
  5. Free kettlebell workouts mobile app for Android.

    I got this book expecting only kettlebell workouts. I got so much more! Taco goes into so much detail explaining terminology, scoring and the science behind the workouts and the muscle groups that are targeted.
    His workouts have helped me lose 2 inches off my waist and feel more powerful with each kettlebell workout and bodyweight exercises like burpees and push ups. It’s a must have for anyone, but it was especially helpful for this newcomer who works out at home in between working and 3 kids.

    This is a really in-depth resource for those who are learning kettlebells, and those who practice regularly. Very detailed information on every aspect of every lift, and the workouts are incredibly challenging.

    If you are the owner of kettlebells and wondering if there is more to using them than swings and Turkish get-ups, then this is the book you need. It covers lots of different workouts that will suit everyone from beginners to the most advanced kettlebell users. The workouts are performed for time and/or AMRAP(as many rep/rounds as possible). The book has workouts that will hit your entire body, working your strength, cardio and endurance. The book gives details of the muscles that the training will work, and has a great section on essential warm-ups before you hit the bells.
    I train in Brazilian jiu jitsu and the book has workouts that are specifically designed to help with your grappling, whether that is for Bjj or MMA.

    Kettlebell Workouts and Challenges includes detailed explanations kettlebell movements some of which I have never seen introduced anywhere else. All movements are clearly described and have accompanying links to videos of the movements so you can actually see them performed.

    The book contains a wide variety of workouts from beginner to intermediate levels making this immediately useful to all experience and fitness levels while also providing more advanced workouts for people to use as they improve. This book and a basic set of kettlebells is really all you need to set up a basic home gym and never be at a loss of workouts for a very long time.

    This a well written book detailing various kettlebell routines suitable to do at home with minimum equipment requirements. The book starts with explaining the terminology used as well the various symbols used to indicate phases of the workouts. Each workout has a link to a You Tube video showing the execution of the workout moves. I practice BJJ so I was very interested in the posted BJJ work out of the day (WOD). It is very dynamic with a lot of movement and is targeted towards working multiple muscle groups simultaneously. I found that routine to be more dynamic than a typical kettlebell circuit. I like the book and would recommend to anyone that is looking for a collection of full workouts that work well and are explained in great detail.

    As a grappler who trains regularly I was looking for something that would specifically benefit BJJ. I’ve used kettlebells as components of workouts for years so was aware of how effective they are. This book contains a huge amount of information alongside the workouts themselves, and has many functional kettlebell movements I hadn’t seen before. The workouts are varied and challenging depending on your level of fitness and the time you have available, so if you’re looking to get into kettlebells or just add to your existing knowledge this is a great book for you.

    I found the training manual to be very encompassing. It introduces the approach of Caveman training very well and provides challenging workouts for both the beginner and seasoned athlete to include a comprehensive explanation of kettle bell training. The manual is a great roadmap for one’s fitness quest.

    For a mostly new person to kettlebell training I was excited to purchase this book. I have dabbled with other online trainers before. The monthly subscriptions normally put you off.
    The workouts in this book are definitely affordable, exciting and Taco explains everything to you so you don’t have to worry about anything but getting it done.
    Easy layout to follow and you always have the Facebook page to follow/challenge yourself against other lifters following Taco’s workouts.
    Highly recommend for newbies. Thanks Taco for sharing your knowledge.

    These books give practical in depth informed information and instruction 

    for using kettle bells in conjunction with bjj. This has been especially useful to me after having a long lay off due to knee surgery.

    highly recommended and regularly used

    How do i structure a Kettlebell workout? Of course people could go “simple and sinister”, do the RKC use similar workout protocols but a Kettlebell aficionado needs some variety in his training. This is where Taco Fleurs new book comes in. Taco Fleur is the founder of Cavemantraining and already wrote several Books about Kettlebell training where he focused on the Kettlebell fundamentals. “Kettlebell Workouts and Challenges 1.0” accompanies this foundational work presented in the other books by providing a huge list of workouts.

    First, Warmups and Mobility exercises are presented, followed by Kettlebell Challenges. The workouts are described well and concise so that you can start off pretty fast after reading about a workout. What I personally like about Kettlebell Challenges, especially the presented HULK test, are a really funny way to progress in Kettlebell training. While I am still far from smashing Hulk it is a great goal to work towards to. That is another good thing about the book: Beside the large list of inspirational and motivational workouts it provides some guidelines on how to score workouts, especially AMRAP workouts. This is important: Measuring/Scoring is the key to progress. While adding weight/using heavier Kettlebells is one feasible way it oftentimes is quite difficult to switch from one smaller Kettlebell to a heavier one. Whoever experienced the new workload when eg switching from a one pood (16kg) to 1,5 pood (24) for the turkish getup. Oftentimes a good preparation before changing the Kettlebell size is to do an exercise faster or more often. In that sense the guidelines regarding how to score your workouts are pivotal for measuring your success and to improve.

    Two things I have to point out as possible areas of improvement though: First of all the internal structure of the chapter “Kettlebell Workouts” could be better; it would be better if simple workouts would be found before the heavier ones. Another thing is that while I really appreciate the good photo quality sometimes there are too many photos in a row. Since the author uses all the benefits an ebook has and links to explanatory videos on youtube it would be better to decrease the number of photos in favor of more youtube links.

    Other than that it is a great inspiration and motivation for doing some Kettlebell training!

    First some background. Started crossfit many years ago. I used kettlebells extensively during that. Then switched to powerlifting and still continued to use them for conditioning. Eventually had some nagging injuries and quit it all.
    Almost 2 years ago I started BJJ and within 8 months tore my distal bicep tendon. Since that time I am back on the mat and doing light weights and kettlebells to help rehab and conditioning.

    83 page workouts and challenges-
    Very thorough with the set up regarding level, weight, number of bells needed, type of workout and duration. The challenges look fun and interesting. Great that there are places to enter your times, weights etc. Good use of bodyweight and other exercises as well.
    302 page workouts and challenges
    I bet I should have read this first for nomenclature and explanations. Excellent detail on exercises with a kb. Outstanding that there are hotlinks to other items. Great detail on definitions, symbols, etc. There is an App!! Tons of workouts! I will never get bored. Links to more things such as videos of moves which is great as well. More awesome explanation of exercises and even charts of muscles to be worked. Very impressed with this and could take a year to go through it when I get in good enough shape. I did notice a link to more basic routines as well.

    Kettlebell Fundamentals
    Again, excellent. Very detailed guide to everything, I think this should actually be the first to be read. Also, it includes fixes for possible pain and incorrect form.

    To sum it up, I have a lot more reading to do and look forward to it. I can see this as a totally standalone program or to supplement my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and make me better at it. I am very pleasantly surprised at the detail and format. There are great guides, instructions and photos. This is worth every penny. I really did not know how much I did not know about kettlebell training

    A bit about me; I am a life long martial artist and a brand spanking new AARP member. I’m currently studying BJJ and am enjoying it. I’ve worked with kettlebells in the past, but not seriously. I mostly focus on body-weight workouts to augment the workout I get from BJJ.

    I started off with the, “Kettlebell Training Fundamentals” book and enjoyed it. I knew enough about kettlebell workouts to be dangerous to myself. After reading the book, I’m in a much better place. Taco covers a wide range of excercises, how to size your kettlebells, various grips (hint – there’s a bunch), terms you should be familiar with, and how to keep from injuring yourself. Taco’s writing style is straight forward and easy to read. There are a handful of diagrams on how to position your body for racking the kettlebells. I’d love to see more of these on the mechanics of the exercises. There are also plenty of pictures and links to videos so you can see if you are performing the techniques correctly. Overall the Fundamentals book is a great effort. To get the most out of it, you’ll need to read it while you have internet access.

    Next up, I read “Kettlebell Workouts and Challenges 1.0”. There are so many workout plans in here that you’ll be hard pressed to pick the right one for your goals. There are plenty of pictures and video links so you are sure to get your form correct. Taco talks a good bit about avoiding injury, so be sure to pay attention. Pay attention to the warmup routines as they are very thorough. I tried out the warmups and a beginner workout and was impressed. I look forward to progressing up through the workouts.

    I discovered Kettlebell training about 4 years ago, and it came at just the right time because I had to stop running due to a number of lower leg injuries. During that layoff, I had put on a lot of weight because I was in denial about being able to run, and hadn’t found anything to replace that activity.

    I bought my first pair of kettlebells, and I was hooked.

    Since my first set, I’ve added bells and come across a variety of training resources.

    I haven’t had a much fun workout out with Kettlebells as I have with Taco Fleur’s Kettlebell Workouts and Challenges 1.0

    Incorporating KB training for use with Mixed Martial arts makes these workouts fun – I’m no MMA practioner, but I’m giving serious thought to changing that status after experiencing Taco’s training system.

    The instructions are easy to understand, and the level of detail that goes into explaining all elements of lifts and movements is incredible; I mean, I’ve yet to have access to training materials that break down thumb positioning. THUMB POSITIONING!

    Finally, as a comic book fan, I geeked out over the names of some of the workouts.

    All in all, this has been a great resource, and well worth the investment. Keep it up Taco. I’m a fan for life!

    Taco has put together a very well thought out and informitive book. It’s very detailed but easy to follow, with links provided for everything, from social media groups to video exercise examples and it doesn’t fry your brain, or put you to sleep! I can’t wait to start this workout and reap the benefits to my jiu-jitsu game and overall health!

    I found the “Kettlebell Workouts and Challenges” training manual to be a comprehensive approach to instructing not only a kettlebell enthusiast, but also those who want to learn more about programming workouts geared towards at home training. I’ve been training with kettlebells with a “Cross Fit” flair for years and still found plenty to grasp and learn from the manual. I appreciate the video external links in the manual that show a workout by doing it. This manual is a living document that one may learn from for years to come. ~ Bob DuBien

    Having been disappointed before when buying fitness books I was more that a little sceptical before buying this one.

    I was looking for something to complement my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training without being too high impact to keep me off the mats.

    Firstly I was impressed by the professional lay out and pictures, everything was very clear and easy to follow. Secondly the sheer range of workouts was astounding, there is something for everyone here.

    Thirdly, every workout had a working link to a video that explained everything, the attention to detail here was greatly appreciated.

    I would recommend this book for anyone looking for a comprehensive resource that will add a lot of variety for their training.
