Anyone doing kettlebell workouts?

  • Hello there,

    I would like to try kettlebells for the first time. Has anyone done this and can you offer advice? I don't want to hire a trainer....I'd like to just buy my own kettlebells and use either a dvd or a youtube video. I do know that correct form is crucial to avoid injury. Thanks so much!
  • Hey, look up Pavil! I've done kettlebells in the past, though I'm more focused on running these days. They're great, and I got amazing strength and cardio out of it.

    Enter the Kettlebell is great, and actually really funny and interesting to read.

    Before I put them down for a bit, I could press 50lbs over my head with one hand. Cool.
  • Hi Lucky. I did kettlebells in the past and really liked it. I took an intro class to get the form down and then bought my own kettlebell with 3 different detachable weights to work out at home. I will say that I was so sore from the swatting that I could barely walk after the first day. If I were to start over I would do some squats for a few days before adding the bells. Good luck!
  • fatferretfanatic, thanks for the link...I'll definitely check it out.

    I just started yesterday by using youtube videos and it was great. My main challenge is that I have a knee issue but I"m trying to work around it.

    Cherie, thanks for your you still do the kettlebells or are you sick of them?
