Over the last couple of months, I’ve been making an effort to get feedback from you – my regular readers and e-mail subscribers – and it’s been incredibly helpful. One of the things I’ve discovered is that there are quite a few of you interested in and actively training with kettlebells that are over the age of 50. And a lot of you have asked for specific program recommendations …
‘The Kettlebell Boomer’ with Master RKC, Andrea Du Cane is a 2 hour and 50 minute DVD designed exactly with you – and your specific goals – in mind. Here’s a little clip from the sales copy on DragonDoor.com:
“Nothing ages us faster than the lack of regular, effective exercise. Muscles melt away, bones go brittle, posture stoops, skin sags, flab hangs and joints creak. Pain, fear and fatigue become our constant companions.
The less you exercise, the faster you decline. However, not all exercise is created equal. Many forms of exercise may at best put you in a holding pattern, while other forms of exercise might even exacerbate your health issues.
The good news is that there is one form of exercise which can give you immeasurable health benefits, whatever your age. Regular, well-designed kettlebell workouts may not only reverse many symptoms of aging, but will actively contribute to building your strength and power well into your 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s …
… Andrea Du Cane’s Kettlebell Boomer presents a complete De-Aging Masterplan, that gives everyone from the raw novice to the experienced athlete an opportunity to defy physical decline and hone themselvesósafely, simply and progressivelyóinto the muscular, energetic, magnetic specimens they deserve to be.
Kettlebell Boomer provides everything you need to start training with kettlebells with full instruction plus follow-along workouts. You will discover two main workouts, one with a strength focus and the other cardio. Watch four different people doing the workout, each representing a different level. Pick the right level for you and follow that person through the entire workout. Or you can switch between levels for different exercises.
Bonus sections cover warm-ups, joint mobility, balance and stability to ensure your anti-aging kettlebell program covers all the essential elements for a long, active, safe and pain-free life. Enjoy!”
Andrea covers many of the basics a lot of folks don’t address – what size kettlebell to start with, the best type of footwear for training with kettlebells, and as mentioned above, balance and stability drills to get you started right with your kettlebell training from the very beginning.

Andrea Du Cane was one of the Master RKC’s at the RKC certification I took two year ago. She’s a great instructor and I highly recommend this program if you’re looking for one specific to your workout needs and you’re over the age of 50.
