    I've been using russian kettlebells instead of free weights for the past four months and I've had pretty good results. They're kind of expensive, but there is a lot of cool **** you can do with them. The only place you can really get them is a website, www.dragondoor.com. If anyone else has used them, let me know how they have worked for you. I only have the 16 and 24 kg kettlebells, I guess they also have 32 and 40 kg ones as well (that's a lot of iron to be swinging around). I guess the wrestlers in Eastern Europe and Russia have been using them for centuries, so I figured I would give them a try. Definitely a quick way to break a sweat.

    Can you tell me why they are good Vargas?

    Why can't you use standard dumbells ?

    Kettlebells are very awkward when handled (ie the weight isn't evenly distributed like a dumbell or barbell). Therefore, you are forced to use a lot of stabilizer muscles, like your obliques, abs and back. Also, kettlebells have a handle that you can use to swing the weight throughout a large range of motions. Checkout the webpage I posted, there are literally thousands of different exercises that you can do with a pair of kettlebells.

    Don't get me wrong, dumbells are still useful, I just feel that kettlebells build a lot more dynamic strength and explosiveness as opposed to normal weight routines.

    That sounds really dangerous, Vargas. Wouldn't constantly fighting for control of it put you at risk of injury?

    PizDoff hit the nail on the head. Start slow and easy with lightweight kettlebells, preferably on mats or on grass/dirt so you can let the kettlebell go if you find yourself losing control of the weight. Once you get used to using the kettlebell, your body will learn how to brace itself when performing exercises. Just as you wouldn't try to power clean 200 lbs the first time in a gym, don't try and do snatches with a 32 kg kettlebell the first time you pick one up.

    Oh yeah, one final note about www.dragondoor.com. Ignore the cheesy ads and testimonials. Apparently, those guys haven't discovered the less-is-more theory of product advertising. Pavel actually has a pretty good reputation, too bad it's hidden under all the hyperbole on that website.

    Hm, my entire workout consists of just dumbells. They seem to get my stabilizers pretty good...

    I'd have to test out these kettlebells first. I've heard of them, but never seen them for sale anywhere...
