    I saw Russian Kettlebells mentioned in a post, and I'm wondering what the opinions of those who have used it is? I've heard some good things about it, but nothing detailed... Does it add a lot of bulk or not? I'd like to stay away from gaining bulk, i'd rather gain as much muscle density as possible. Would you recommend them for someone who has done *very* little weight training?

    From my, very limited experience, they're an excellent way to rip, and add strength. The cool thing about kettlebells is that they strengthen muscles in your body that you never knew existed, and thus the strength is a lot more applicable to fighting/grappling than is you were doing plain old lifting. They are not a good way to bulk, though.

    They are supposed to excellent.
    Dragondoor.com and cbass.com have some good information.

    Since shipping to Australia costs a fortune for books (and is based on weight), it is probably not healthy for my bank account to order large iron balls and import them.

    Hence, no personal experience.

    I use them and am a firm believer that if you had to choose only one training device for weight training, it'd be a kettlebell hands down.

    You can do all the traditional exercises with them, but there are some exercises that really only work properly with the KB. Swings, odd angled presses, get ups... Nasty when done with DBs, but religiously painful when done with KBs!

    If you are in the market for something to pump up your workout, KBs are it. I'm looking forward to when they get more mainstream into the fitness market so the prices won't be so high. I have one 16kg KB, and while I am in pretty decent shape (active duty soldier, so I PT 4 days a week just for work, not counting my own training), that can still smoke a PT stud even though the weight is light (it is all in the intensity of the lift, not really the weight - Just ask Pavel!).

    FRAUD SCAM JOKE..................
    never ceases to amaze me how any idea that comes from Bulgaria,Russia,or the former East Germany,
    NO MATTER HOW STUPID,gets accepted as gospel truth by the National Strength Coaches Association and all of the 50,000,000 strength coaches and persoanl trainers in the USA.The credulity of people boggles the mind......but I do think kettlebells can be good martial arts weapons-imagine busting a would be mugger's noggin with a 25 pound kettlebell.

    has anyone used a regular weight training program and tried kettlebells and found them to be superior? i have to admit that i am skeptical. considering how skeptical the people on bullshido usually are about mcdojos, i'm surprised that people aren't skeptical about something as fishy looking as this.

    Jenfucius -
    Yup, you can apply the majority of the exercises to dumbells with similar results.

    It isn't as hard though because the dumbell is a lot more stable.

    Why do you believe the kettlebells are stupid ?
    They are a variation of a dumbell, designed to be harder to control when swinging, hence working the muscles a little differently.
