    Unless you have somebody to teach you in person for a couple of lessons, I would suggest against it. Can be very easy to hurt yourself. I've taught tons of people and it takes time.

    I used them a couple times when I did tried the 300 workout with a buddy. Don't remember exactly what we did but it wasn't overly difficult to work with.

    if you are proficient in the technique, a kettlebell is NOTHING like a dumbbell. like ray said, another tool in the toolbox. cool for cardio and stabilizer work.

    My gym has kettlebell classes but I never go to the gym at the right time. :o
    I do KB swings once in a while though. That's about it.
