    Came across this via Pintrest and am so glad that I did! I've been taking a Kettlebell Class for the last 2 months and am addicted to KB!! I started out swinging around 20 lbs and have progressed up to 40 lbs! The strength and cardio workout you get from working with KB is awesome! Kudos to you for posting this instructional video for those who are new and need the knowledge! (and for mentioning the glutes! people think it's an arm thing, but its all butt, hips, and thighs!)

    emoticon for your time in making this video and sharing your expertise.

I bought one but it is not heavy enough - I learned thanks to your video. Have to look into getting another one. this looks like a very good functional fitness exercise to do.

Also thank you for the instruction with the breathing. I am going to try it on it's own too for extra work for my core.

    Great instructions, but I don't believe I actually there yet! I'll pass on this and let somebody else try, until I can build more muscle and get more fit! Thank you so much for sharing!

Be blessed,

    Thank you for all your great detail! I hope I can do this someday. Right now, I could not do a squat to save my life, but that's something to strive for! It looks like kettlebell workouts could be so good! emoticon emoticon

    so, when you are first starting, if you have had bursitis, is it still a bad idea to start with only a 10 lb. one?

    I just tried using a kettle bell today at the gym without instruction & I did it mostly right. Thanks for clarifying the proper use! No injuries!!!

    Great video. I have done the kettleball inspired routines on the SP Bootcamp DVD and find your instructions to aid me with them. I can see why the exercises are so effective.

    I'm guessing if you have an L5, S1 herniation, kettlebells probably aren't the best form of exercising?

    Thanks for this - I do swings with my trainer, or rather, for my trainer. After her instruction and demonstration when we first added this in, she hasn't been doing them for me to watch. I guess my form must be good, or she would correct it, but it's nice to have this video here, so I can check myself in the mirror when I'm alone.

    Wow, I never knew there was so much involved. Not that I was really interested in them, until now. Thank you very much for giving us the proper instruction. My mom bought an 8 pound kettleball, and now I will advise her to seek out an instructor so she doesn't get hurt. Thank you very much!!

    Thanks for the instructions and showing how it is done. I have a kettle ball and Bob Harper's Workout but he did not explain it as thoroughly as you did or e explain about how to breathe when you are swinging the ball. Now i see what i have been doing wrong.

  Thanks for the video. I am concerned about the knee locking. It seems to go against everything we learn when working with trainers and watching other fitness videos. I want to start using KB's so I'll definitely have to do more research.

  This is very interesting to me. I had no idea there was a specific technique involved with using kettlebells. I am curious about whether the movements are potentially damaging to hip, knees and lower back.
