Yes, young kids can use KB with the proper instruction and progression. In fact it is a great way to build strength and conditioning with relatively lighter loads.
Also, there is the benefit of teaching them the human movements for more difficult exercises later on!

Are kettlebells good for joints and tendons, like calisthenics is? Are they harmful like regular weightlifting is really what I am asking. I am not allowed to lift weights because of some heart surgeries and problems I had early in life, and I'm just curious if kettlesbells might be a good tool to add to my arsenal. Keep in mind that , so far, I am only doing bodyweight and have been told by my doctor that it is ok for me to engage in those activities as long as I feel comfortable doing them.

Kettlebells when done the hardstyle way offer little impact on the joints and yes as you train with them they will strengthen your connective tissue.
Are you planning on starting? If so, I would find a RKC in your area and get them to train you properly.

Interval Training

For myself, my coaches and my clients interval training has a huge impact on fat loss with regards to time it takes to see results but also with muscle retention and growth.

Here are a few article that do a great job of covering the topic:

A recent article one of our chiropractors finished was all about his experience with kettlebells and how amazing he believes they truly are. I think this may also be helpful to everyone on this thread, it was for me. I am excited to implement the strategies and info covered in this article.

Kettlebells And Chiropractic – A Winning Combination!


Summary:
After 14 years as a successful chiropractor, this chiropractor has finally discovered what he believes to be the very best tool for improving back-strength and overall health of his patients. That tool is the kettlebell.

The Doctor Becomes a Patient


"Im still amazed at the improvement in back stability that comes with kettlebell training. I feel like a kid again! I can honestly say I am in the best shape of my life after only 8 months! I now work a full day in my practice and then train people with kettlebells one-on-one and in groups 4-5 nights a week."

Do you guys agree that the kettlebell is the best tool for improving back strength?
