After months of training with Ken’s kettlebells, I finally broke down and bought one of my own. These things are great workout tools. If you’re looking to get back into shape, I highly recommend them. Make sure you find a certified instructor in your area and take a few lessons so that you don’t hurt yourself. Unless you’re familiar with Olympic-style lifting, you’re bound to get injured by using improper form. Done properly, though, the health benefits are amazing.
I can’t totally credit the kettlebells for this, but I dropped quite a few pounds and blood pressure points after I started training. Anyway, if you’re looking for something different, this is it.
