Cool- I haven't tried it yet, but plan to do so. I think I will start at a low weight. I actually have a "power bell" that allows you to add plates to make it heavier, so I'll start this light and move up.

I also went to my phyical therapy app't for my left shoulder last night, and my trainer said to take it easy on this one- she did supervise my kettlebell swing form, however, and gave me a thumb's up to start trying to add that back to my program.

Let me know what y'all think when you try it

I have been looking for a good kettlebell workout (since I do not have a workout buddy that would allow me to justify getting that medicine ball that I want so badly). I am going to try this. Thanks!

I have done various Mens Health workouts over the years, and have had success with them. I believe in changing things constantly, so in that respect it looks great! I have their dumb bell workout book, and have been having a great time with it!

IDK, I'm not one for trying unconventional approaches to weightlifting.But it does look sound.

Yes- i was thinking in terms of a supplement to other ST stuff that you would be doing. I am going to try it. I have a 15-lb KB at home that I can try, and see how it feels I guess.

Looks like it would be a good workout that would target some area's that normally don't get much use and definitely help with overall core strength. Just seeing that short video makes me want to bring my kettle balls into the office where I could do some of those basic moves during a break. I bet going up and down stairs with that would be a great added increase. I would NOT make it my main workout, just a supplement.

I wanted to see what the guys in the lounge (and the ladies who hang out w/ us) think about this workout.

Seems like a dummy-proof plan. Coach Nancy liked it when I asked in the fitness board, but no other replies. Just curious about it, as well as how much weight the bell should be in your opinion. I know that generally swings requre a decent sized bell, but this is different.

Thank you.
