Robert’s workouts combine kettlebell training with the best of exercises from a number of areas, including: body weight (gravity) exercises, yoga, and pilates.

Videos download fast, all over the world.

That’s important when you need space for other apps, music and pics on your iPhone/iPad!
This app is intended as a low-cost introduction to kettlebell training. Always consult with a doctor prior to starting any training regimine.
Included in the app is a Kettlebell Selection video that will help you when choosing your kettlebells.
No. This app is intended as an introduction and a reference guide. In general, the exercises are put in the specific workout order for a reason.
So if you own both devices, you can put it on both devices with a single purchase.
This app was build for iOS 8 or later.
The initial download is less than 20MB.
Upon retrieval by WiFi or data connection, videos are stored on your device. This increases the size of the app – up to a total size of 726MB.
However, we have purposely limited video quality to minimize the space taken up on your device. Do you really need full HD video for this anyway? 🙂
You can remove these videos in the Settings menu, or by simply uninstalling the app from your device.
If you’re new to kettlebells, the first thing you need to know is that most kettlebells are measured in kilograms (kg), not pounds (lbs). If you don’t remember your high school math, that’s okay – 1kg is equal to about 2.2bs. Thusly, an 8kg kettlebell would equal about 17.6 lbs.
For your first kettlebell, you’ll need a single kettlebell that is challenging, but not difficult, to do around 20 standard one-handed swings. If you are unsure about what works for you, visit a gym near you that has kettlebells, and ask if you can try them out.
In general, the average weights for men and women are:
Men: 16kg (35lb)
Women: 12kg (25lb)
You can buy 2 kettlebells for exercises that use doubles.
Don’t be afraid to err on the side of going light. You can always buy bigger bells as you progress, and injuries from starting too heavy are completely unecessary.
There are a lot of kettlebells out there, but Robert likes and uses solid, cast iron kettlebells.
You can buy them online here, but the problem is usually the shipping rates are expensive. They are heavy.
A way to buy them cheaper is to search for and go to a kettlebell event, workshop or convention in your area. Many events have vendors that sell kettlebells, and you can get them there without having to pay for shipping.
You can always check Craigslist and other similar sites, but quality kettlebells rarely show up used.
Solution: Get on a strong WiFi connection and re-download all the videos.
If your WiFi connection was interrupted during video download – you might have only downloaded part of the video.
To fix this, first make sure you are on a strong WiFi connection.
Second, launch the app and tap Settings, then tap Remove All Videos, Yes, then Close.
Finally, tap Download All Videos and wait until you see they have all been downloaded. This can take up to 5 minutes.

If you have a connected Bluetooth headset, the sound might be playing though that. Simply disable your Bluetooth.
