Amazing. I alternate each day with the grind and the smoker w/ finisher. You'll create your own system when you know the workouts. The smoker w/ finisher is NO joke but you will feel amazing after doing it and its only 20 minutes. Thanks Lauren! (Posted on 12/16/2013)

I don’t usually like sequels, but Lauren Brooks’ second kettlebell DVD is an exception to the rule. Like the first volume of her three-part DVD series, The Ultimate Body Sculpt and Conditioning With Kettlebells, Volume 2 is another source of effective, challenging exercises, and one that should belong to your library if you are looking for at-home kettlebell workouts.
What really impressed me about Volume 2, however, was the way that it flows so organically from Volume 1. Nerd that I am, I was very careful to get comfortable with Volume 1 before I went on to Volume 2, and I’m glad that I did. Just when I thought I had gotten this kettlebell thing down, Lauren threw in some new and exciting exercises to mix things up, including three of my favorite kettlebell exercises ever:
*The Turkish Get Up: Lauren uses get ups throughout the video. This video was my introduction to the get up, as well as the TGU Squat Style.
*The Overhead Squat: It wasn’t my first time doing an overhead squat, but it was the first time with a kettlebell, and I was amazed at how different it was. Lauren uses a lot of overhead squats during the second workout, aptly called “The Smoker."
*The Snatch: Lauren provides really solid instruction on how to execute the snatch properly. She uses snatches in the short workout called “The Finisher,” which is a great way to end any kettlebell workout.
These aren’t the only exercises Lauren introduces in Volume 2. Here are the other exercises that she demonstrates:
Kettlebell Diamond Pushups
Kettlebell Diamond Burpees
Windmill
Single Leg Deadlift
High Pull
Tactical Lunges
Push Press
Single Kettlebell Plank
Lauren also includes a short Bonus Ab Workout. This is another one of Lauren’s workouts that I have committed to memory because it’s so simple yet effective. This workout also has a special place in my heart because it was one of the first challenging ab workouts I was able to do after having a c-section with complications last year. When I first started, I could only do the exercises unweighted, and it was great to slowly progress until I could do them with a heavier bell.
This brings me to another bonus about the DVD: although the cover says it’s an intermediate/advanced workout, it’s also suitable for beginners who want a challenge. If you’ve mastered the exercises in Volume 1 but can only do them with a lighter kettlebell, don’t be afraid to move on to Volume 2. Although a lot of the exercises are more difficult on a technical level, they can be easily scaled down by using a lighter bell, or even doing them unweighted, like I did when I first started the ab workouts. That being said, Lauren did choose some more challenging exercises than those presented in Volume 1.
Like in the first volume, Lauren provides good cues throughout and encourages you to challenge yourself without compromising technique or being overly flashy. I always find myself thinking during these workouts: “Hmmm, Lauren Brooks only lives about seven hours away from me. Maybe I could drive out for a weekend training session.” Must be a good workout.
In The Ultimate Body Sculpt and Conditioning With Kettlebell, Volume 2, Lauren Brooks takes the foundation she laid in Volume 1 and builds on it. You know that saying from Girl Scouts, “Make new friends but keep the old”? Think of the kettlebell swing as the old and the snatch as the new. Lauren introduces you to the new without dismissing the old, and that’s what makes this DVD a rare example of a good sequel.

A couple of years, I religiously attended Lauren's classes. I became incredibly strong physically. It also helped me relieve an amazing amount of stress being the mom of three boys ages three and under. I had to give up attending her classes but I am ecstatic about using her new online workouts. My favorite part is I can turn on my favorite music (really loud) via Pandora while working out with Lauren in the privacy of my own backyard.

Firstly I would like to say that you are honestly my Queenly inspiration!
When I started out with the 4-kg kettlebell my hubby bought me as a gift I could hardly work with it :) it was tooooo heavy, can you believe it. My little chicken arms could not deal with it. Now after just 5 months of your Volume 2 DVD I am pressing 14-kg's and looking better than ever! My goal is to press the 16kg by the end of this year and the 24kg by the end of next year... What has been tremendous as well has been how my body has balanced out. I have always had a small upper body and big bum, but this is starting to change!

I have your Volumes 1, 2 and 3 as well as the Workshop DVD and I love them. I am currently doing Volume 1 & 2 workouts. I also have the Goddess Workout DVD and From Russia With Tough Love that I don’t use.
I think your DVDs are the best and enjoy working out with you in my workout room and seeing great results.
Bless you for all your hard work, positivity and effort to make these DVDs.

I am fairly new to kettlebells and as of just a couple of months ago began using your Volume 2 kettlebell DVD to take me to that next level. I am 25 years old and just less than a year ago had my second baby in which I gained over 60 lbs. It honestly was not until I began using your DVD religiously, that I began seeing some serious results. I now have sculpted arms, and my newly skinny butt fits into my jeans from high school...what an accomplishment!
I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping to whip this young mom back into shape and finally feeling confident again. I feel so powerful when using kettlebells and you have a new found fan for life! I also appreciate your straightforward approach when instructing! When I can afford a new DVD purchase I hope to move on to your Volume 3 DVD. Thanks again and keep up the great work!

Your DVDs have changed my body, especially my legs! I used to have the hardest time finding jeans that fit over my thighs, so I just gave up wearing them. This year, for the first time in years, I went jean shopping and found two pairs of jeans that fit! And, I didn't even have to spend all day in a dressing room trying on 1000 pairs.
I used to be afraid of "bulking up" if I used heavy weight, but the exact opposite happened using your DVDs. My legs, which used to be my trouble area, have slimmed down and now have great definition. I just love what you and your DVDs have done for me. I'm eagerly anticipating your next DVD!

Hi Lauren just wanted to say how much I enjoy your workouts and what they have done for me. Your Vol. 1 was hands down my favorite until I got Vol. 2. I love it, especially the Smoker w/ Finisher. I love the fact that I can do a quick tough workout that produces results in less than 30 minutes. I do have a TRX so I am excited to see what Vol. 3 will bring.

Hope you don't mind, but I'm actually providing feedback on behalf of my 55yo husband. :) Yours are the only - and I mean ONLY - workout dvds he will do. He loves the 20-30min format and alternates workouts from Vols 1 and 2 about 3x a week. He's always been lean but has made great strength gains. Boy does he sweat, lol! He relies solely on kettlebells using your videos plus bike riding to keep him healthy, fit and sane. :)

I have both vol. 1 & 2. I have only been doing kettlebells for four weeks and I see major results. I've worked out with dumbbells for years and didn't get the results I got in just four weeks. I love your dvds. I keep humming the music to your vol. 1 dvd and would like to know where I can purchase the music.
