    I been reading about kettlebells and a lot of people who use them for working out say they improve their strength, mobility, and even gain muscle.
    Does anyone have experience with them? They look easy to use but based on the results they give, I have a feeling they aren't lol

    I have a kettlebell actually. I used it a few times and do enjoy it but I hurt myself with it. I think it is best to actually go to a gym and try them out with someone who knows how to use them before you invest. They are hard to work with but you do get used it it. I was using a 10 pound one which someone told me is too high. Women should start with 5 pounds and men with 10. Oops haha

    My friend does and swears by it. He basically does 3 sets of these 3 x's a week :

  4. A kettlebell has one drawback: You can hurt yourself a lot by using it without proper instruction! I'm not talking about letting it drop on your foot;) - the excercises require really good form to keep ones tendons from over-stretching, joints have to be stabilzed in the right way, etc.
    The thing was first used by folks who already were strong to power up some more ... ;)

    As mentioned, you can hurt yourself very easily. I used them when I was in college and they are great once you learn how to use them but you won't learn unless someone trains you.
    Never try it without a trainer, specially if you are a beginner to weight training.
