Starting kettlebell exercises for a noob
Ben,You still liking your Kawi? Im thinking about getting one of those little pukes J/K of course.. any feedback would be appreciated.
Definitely swings and get ups, and get Enter the Kettlebell by Pavel. Even if you don't follow the program the safety tips (it's your fault!), and technique advice is great. Seeing an RKC wouldn't hurt either if you have the funds. Art of Strength also has a pretty good companion ETK work book as well that puts a bit more structure to Pavel's program.
I think the core excercises for KB's are Swings, Get Ups, then progress to Cleans (get the clean down without beating the hell out of your forearm), then Presses (good form without ripping your shoulder to pieces), then Snatches. Then whatever you want.
