I just got into this workout! I have been wanting to buy for some time now,I just got a 3 piece set at Aldi!!! for only $12!! I started that day, it is a super workout. I was sore at first, now I wake up at 5am and do a 1/2 hour. The set I am doing has a 5, 10 and 15lb. And watching tons of videos that are really easy and helpful. Good Luck all, this is a strength workout you can't pass up:]
I started using kettlebells two or three years ago and I love the workout, but it is definitely for intermediate to advanced fitness levels...I haven't done it in a while because I am out of shape but I really enjoy it and hope to be able start up again soon. The DVD that I have is called "The Kettlebell Way."
I just purchased the Skogg system DVD from Amazon. I did the introductory lesson on Monday. The instructor seems to be very thorough about showing you the proper technique and the 5 DVD set takes you from beginner workouts to advanced/Warrior level workouts.
Kettlebells are really big in the UK, The first time i did a kettle bell class i couldnt walk properly for a couple of days and I am reasonably fit. I absolutely love kettlebells and have toned up so much, at the moment i weigh the same as I did 10 years ago but am a dress size smaller than I was then and am sure it is down to kettlebells. one thing i did notice the day after a kettlebell class my weight would go up by a 1 lb the next day, which i assume is muscle but at the end of week i would weigh myself and had lost weight. 100% recommend kettlebells.

I have always wanted to try one and for xmas my mother in law got me a 10lb one. I was going to jump on you tub or find a workout vid and go at it but now i am worried i will get hurt since i dont have a PT to help me and 2 i am worried it is too light and a waste of time. booo now i feel like i should just sell the thing.

I had a kettlebell DVD by Jillian Michaels that sat unopened for over a year because the kettlebells were so pricey. Eventually, I found a 15 lb kettle bell for a great price at a Ross store. I think it was only $24 and it is great quality. It was worth the wait. I like working with it.
