    i keep getting reminded of how useless kettlebells are every time I move a couch up a flight of stairs while my friends are gasping for breath and i haven't even elevated my breathing, or have a client tell me they lost more body fat or that they are off blood pressure medicine. definitely useless

    Yes... but then again you are biased, you have no facts, or you are the very rare exception. You better stop before you get hurt.

    Having formerly been a high school teacher this article caused injury to my logic and skeptic muscle. I wanted to dust off my old red pen and write "unsupported assertion, citation needed" and "opinion stated as fact, supporting facts needed" all over.

    Whilst i absolutely do not agree with the point of the article,and i greatly enjoy the training, and benefits of kb training."Mr broken arm",or the existence of "mr broken arm",brings up an important point.
    The kettlebell is exactly what all the hype say it is.It is a one-stop shop for all your needs,but you NEED GOOD JUDGEMENT if you're going to train yourself from videos,books etc.I trained myself for the cert. this way as there is no RKC instructor near me,but i was lucky in that i had martial arts experience and many years weight training,bodyweight training and yoga.All of that seemed to translate well when it came time to start using a bell.Many may not have that experience in physical culture to draw from,so in those cases injuries are not only possible,but likely..eventually,given the nature of ballistic kettlebell work.
    So my point,i guess would be that,if one has the option,then book time with and RKC to learn the movements.The cost of that time along with the cost of buying a bell or two still dwarfs the cost(in money and time)of using a regular commercial gym,and you'll be a lot safer working by yourself once you know what you're doing.
    If you do not have access to an RKC and"if you don't have good judgement,then why don't you just stay on the machines you big sissy".......hmmmm,i wonder who said that?
    Oh, and the article has the air of a jilted lover.Trying way too hard to push one opinion.Not impartial in it's language and therefore,those with the ability to read between the lines will spot that a mile off.

    It comes from an indomitable will"-Mohandas K. Gandhi.
