:: kettlebell featured in fitness ::

I was thrilled to see kettlebell featured in this month's (july) issue of Fitness. I'm hoping that more women would take notice of this AWESOME tool - scientifically proven to burn 70% more calories than the typical strength routine. They also featured quite a number of drills to learn from.

The first gripe I have is the lack of mention on the importance of learning the core drills from a kettlebell expert - its so easy to do the wrong thing and hurt yourself, especially on the swings & snatches! The second gripe is that the recommended starting weight is 10 lb (isn't that kinda light??) and there's no emphasis on the importance of increasing weight to push one's self.

Regardless - i'm so glad there's been PR on it!
