Still a newbie to kettlebells... and I have a question - what workout did you start with and what workout gave you results you could either feel (internal strength) or see (external results)?

Swings! The simple swing, and lots of 'em. Definitely felt it, but you have to go heavy.

I agree on the swings. I use a 20lb KB and I did swings on Sunday, and my lower body is STILL sore...but in a good way!

I'm currently trying Lorna's Silver workout from her kbell book. I'm in week 3 of the 6 week program.

I'm still perfecting my form (esp. cleans - yes, I've got a few bruises) but I guess I'm wondering if anyone has had an epiphany with kbells and found them to work really well?

Anyone in menopause using them with some degree of results?

Just still wandering around and wondering lots of things...

you're funny Gibbee. I saw a book but I didn't know I thought it was Klieman or something like that.

The bruises will go away and I don't mean just as in life but you will soon know when it it coming round and it won't really hit ya so bad. yes, it will be sore for awhile also but that also goes away.

I have no epiphany of them. I just like them. What would you like to do? Do you want an online video to watch with different drills?

Do you have any access to a live instructor for them? You can get buy with just one.

I don't know what menopause has to do with the results. What kind of results would someone in menopause be getting that someone who is not?

Maybe you should get Enter The kettlebell with Pavel talking about each of the basic moves. No one goes through them like he does. I maybe partial to him and his style so that may not work for you.

You can also try asking more questions on Nofearfitness.com

Or try out Andreas new kettbell DVD for all stages of life? try looking at his clip and see if this might help. Andrea Ducane

I'm new to kettlebells & have been doing lots of research on VF, but this is the first time I thought to search the "Everything..." threads--d'oh! Thanks for all of the great info here!

I have another brand to add: I recently purchased a 8 kg Kaizen Kettlebell, and I think it's very high quality. It is sold by Budu Videos, but I bought my from Amazon for <$30, including shipping! You can check out my video review on Amazon here:

Also, for those of you who have done reviews/breakdowns of DVDs, please consider cutting/pasting and adding these to VF's Reviews section! Again, I never thought to look at this thread until now, but I have been reading the Reviews section, trying to decide which DVDs to buy. You will help out many more users by submitting these reviews!

Wanted to reply here as well. Purchased kettlebells from http://www.christiansfitnessfactory.com/ and I like them ALOT. They do also sell via amazon.com, but I've found them to be cheaper and the shipping to be less when I buy directly from their website.
