    I am thinking of adding a day or two of kettle bell training, as I've heard that it really helps built up the muscles and keeps you limbre and ready for a fight as it were. There is a good company here in Melbourne that stocks a kettlebell and dvd packs and looks quite good, but was wondering how anyone else here has done with kettlebells or kettlebell training in general.

    I used them once with my PT. He had me lifting and swinging the bell from the floor between my legs, up, and in front of me.

    It was for exercise and to up my respiration.

    These are excellent additions to one's workout regimen. Don't expect to gain a lot of mass, they're mainly for getting lean and strong.

    I saw an ad for Joe Wieder's PowerBell or something like that, which is an adjustable weight kettle bell type thingy. It seemed intriguing. A friend of mine had an old school 35# which is an ass-kicker.

    Does anyone know if this flashy new toy is any good?

    Thanks,

    oh there a blast, until you start doing this flicky bunchy things (no idea what they are called) wear sweat bands to protect your wrist if you drop the weight on'em cause they can hurt hehe

    I had a personal trainer who liked to incorporate them into my workout. Great for core training if done with proper form (feet/ankles firmly on ground, knees bent, swing up to shoulder height and back down, thrusting hips forward on the swing up, core/abs tight and flexed during the movement). Just another good variation to mix up a core workout.
