    Default Which KB resource should I buy first?

    I have read a few of Pavel's books but none on KB training spec.

    MY goal is strength. My weakness is cardio.

    I have no idea how to do a snatch but I love training for strength (esp. with body wt. excersise).

    I am considering "The Russian Kettlebell Challenge."
    Is there a better choice for my first KB resource?

    Pavel has tought me many things already, can't wait to learn much more from all of you.

    Default David...

    Where in Atlanta are you? I have most of the KB videos and a couple of books. I would be more than happy to let you borrow anything you want, then you can decide what you want to buy. I can tell you, if your main goal is strength, don't give up the barbell lifts. Kettlebells can supplement your training nicely. I also have quite a few kettlebells, let me know and I would be more than happy to let you give them a try. Shoot me an email whenever you can: scott@atlantaironsports.com

    Best,

    Scott

    Welcome David,
    As for books and videos, I think most here would suggest "from Russia with Tough Love"... yep, the woman's DVD. Don't worry, it's plenty difficult. Goes into a little more depth, however, in the instructions.

    Your 1st and best resource, I'd say, is to meet personally with a local RKC instructor. An hour with an RKC will really shave time off your learning curve.

    It's a great move, taking up kettlebells. The RKC book was my introduction to KBing and I still learn something every time I pick it up. I haven't seen many other resources, but RKC is probably a good primer for any of them. It will teach you proper form in some basic lifts and WILL challenge you, especially if your cardio is a little lacking! You will hurt in places you didn't know you had, at least for a little while.

    Good luck!

    I recommend meeting with Scott Shetler to get started. He has been very helpful to me.

    Com. David, welcome to the Party! Given your goals get the Naked Warrior and From Russia with Tough Love (never mind that it is aimed at women).
