I've used them for abouta year, I think they are good to add in routine. Just basic kettle bell swings or even the more technical (one arm swings and then shoulder press, etc) are really good. One thing though be careful and have good form, keep your back straight, when swinging any weights have to be smart, easy to get hurt.

They are expensive tho, I use then at my local gym, don't own any of then for myself.

Hope this was somewhat useful, overall I like and use them.

Kettle bells kind of strike me as a trendy new piece of exercise equipment.

They haven't been popular for that long, and as far as I can tell, they are just kind of an accessory exercise.

They're popular amongst crossfit people for sure. But I'll take power lifting and more traditional body building exercises over KB's any day. Maybe I'm just being a hater. Just my 2 cents. :-)

There's a good workout that uses them. Can't remember what it's called or even where I saw it.

Basically you hold the weight straight up above your head with one arm. Kneel to sit to lay and reverse all while holding it above your head. Core/legs/arms/chest in one motion.

Just like almost everything else. It depends on your goals. But short answer, KBs rock for a quick, killer cardio session.

You won't get yoked with them but you will develop phenomenal work capacity and get cut up using them. They are pretty popular with fire depts around here, develops exactly what we need on the job. 20mins of weighted all out cardio then A rest. They are expensive for basically 3 pieces of equipment(3 weights are "needed") but you have a lot of versatility from those three things. And they take up zero room, and you can do em in the living room while you watch tv. I've got a barbell and KBs and right now while I'm on 8-5 weeks my barbell stays up till the weekends. Hit the KBs for twenty mins after work while dinner is on the grill. Eat and still have time to hang out with the kids. I love talking about this stuff so if you have anymore questions ask away.

I have been using KettleBells 3 x a week since the 1st of the year I have dropped 3" off my waist and I feel I am in my best physical condition since high school. I have had chronic back trouble for years and while it was hard to do at first I have overcome all back problems exercising with these bells.
We use a KettleWorx DVD workout collection with trainer Alex Haly. It has cardio, resistance, upper body, lower body and back workouts. It is really cool all the exercises you can do with a KettleBell.
