    You wont regret investing in them thats for sure.

    You dont exactly put on all this muscle like people who go to the gym and do bodybuilding exercises, but you'll certainly be much stronger than them. I cant think of any other way of working out that would be more beneficial to a grappler/athlete than KB's

    They're a good tool if you can get them and can ad variety into your workout program. However, I I don't use them myself because I get enough workout from barbells and dumbbells. Don't get me wrong KBs and CBs are a good and usefful form of exercise, but, IMHO, their populariy is a result of marketing more than anything else. Don't throw away or quit using your other equipment (barbells, dumbbells, etc) if you choose to buy them. At least they're not crap like some other gadgets out there.

    ****, not TOO much hype about these chunks of pig iron with handles.

    Reality check.

    They are chunks of pig iron with handles on them devised long ago by poor and primitive peoples. Think about that next time you're tempted to lay down $2.50 per pound for the privilege (plus shipping)!

    “There is no such thing as a secret exercise which will produce miraculous results. There are no mysterious appliances which will work wonders for you. Progressive exercise against resistance-whether furnished by the weight of your own body or by an appliance-and adherence to certain rules of living, will infallibly produce results for every fit man”.

    I've got a grand idea. Instead of laying down gobs of money for kettlebells, why don't you start using your barbells in one hand, and purchase some dysfunctional cinderblocks and put a bar through them, or buy a sandbag, or a medicine ball.
    C'mon, I need someone to hype these ideas up so sandbags can only be found on the internet and cost 250 dollars a pound, and I get 40 percent of the profits.

    I actually prefer a medicine ball to kettlebells. However, they both have their advantages and disadvantages.

    I've never trained with sand bags, but it seems to me that they would be comparable to kettlebells and a hell of a lot cheaper. Might even be better b/c they would work your grip more.

    I know, that's what I said. But seriously, someone's agreeing with me? Send Hitler some ice skates.
