HAPPY NEW YEAR! I'm new and just started working out and decided to use Kettle bells. I prefer to workout at home so far in under 30 minutes and I was whipped like I'd worked out for an hourSmile I'm looking forward to posting my progress. I especially like that I seem to get both cardio and strength all in one instead of hoping to not do too much of one and not the other. Has anyone else tried them?

@wholefoodnut I purchased mine from Walmart too. I checked out the website dragondoor.com so that's where I found the most information on dvd's.

They definitely work to target core areas. I've been using it on my abs and arms, and they have definitely been toning up. I've been using them a little over a month now.

What weight do you use? Do you use two at a time or one larger one?

I have been Kettlebell training for 2 years now. They are awesome Smile. Its the one exercise I am not getting tired of. If it gets easy you just use a heavier one!

I recently started using Kettlebells for my work out routines once a week. I started with 5lbs, because I have zero weight training experience under my belt. I searched you tube videos for 30 minute beginner sessions, and found a few to use but so far I have only tried one video by fitness blender and I find it is a great beginner work out. Eventually I will do it more than once a week and will try other intro videos when I do. Good luck!

I LOVE Fitness Blender! I did a complete kettlebell workout yesterday with my 10lb. I'm definitely feeling it this morning!

I have been using kettle bells since last march. I started with a ten pounder, now im using a fifteen. You only need one, and it is definitely a cardio/strength combo that is sure to kick your bum. I use bob harpers kettle bell sculpted body dvd, its very intense. You can find a lot of good kettle bell workout dvds on amazon.com for pretty reasonable prices. Good luck!
Never mind the time it will take you to accomplish your goal; the time will pass anyway.

@scmetterling34....you're inspiring me to keep up with the kettlebells you look fab!
@thickgurl...I have a 10, 20 and 25. I will have to see how long it takes for me to graduate to the 20 and 25 but you only need one. I've seen some more advanced videos where people use 2.

I'll have to check out Amazon and Fitness blender soon, thanks for the info.

been checking out the utube videos for kettlebell workouts. Phew. Its not for the faint hearted......or the heavy bottomed. May have to lose a bit more weight before I attempt throwing those badboys around.

Kettlebells are great. Whatever you do, DO NOT watch the Jillian Michaels instructional. It's notorious for demonstrating poor form that could cause injury.

I keep looking at them, they have some at the gym but too heavy for me. I've been doing some of the moves with my dumbbells, having a handle would be better.

Even if you think they are too heavy, just try a couple reps. Can't hurt to try.

I've tried them. I need lighter ones, starting @15# is too much for me. Even the trainer said they were too heavy, she had been asking for lighter ones.

Exercise vs calories
exercise helps you burn calories, but it does not control your calorie intake.
