It doesn’t take much to see that kettlebell-mania is popping up all over the country. While this traditionally Russian strength training tool was relatively unheard of just a few years ago, it has now become the cornerstone of core body workouts.
After a high-profile controversy surrounding Jillian Michael’s misinformed workout DVD, kettlebells became the hot new tool to sculpt muscles and boost core strength. While Jillian’s technique may not have exactly made the cut, experts agree that following proper guidelines when working with kettlebells can provide an intense and effective workout.
If you are new to kettlebells, or need to brush up on kettlebell protocol, here are tips and tricks from fitness experts to set you on the right course. Have kettlebell tips of your own? Share them in the comments section below!

@bricknewyork last night during Friday Night Lights, a seasoned Combiner was hard at work crushing the open! @michellemeyer2 stated "When you tear, why stop, it's already done and there is nothing you can do about it- just keep going." True dedication and incredible heart! #cmctraining #cmc #cmcombine #bricknewyork #bricknation #workhardplayhard #14.2 #crossfit #crossfitbayport #customfitmeals #eboost #fuelforfire @teamdangeroushq @trainwithheidi @eboost @customfitmeals @oneteamonefight @31heroes @nicolechaplin @thej2fit @trooperfitness @crossfitharlem @reebokcrossfitone @steeltribemusclegear @gerrenliles @farouk_houssein @strongfigure @platoonfitness
@cmcombine shared the morning with @crossfitpocono who currently has the 4th largest team for the May 17th CMC event with close to 30 people. They just moved into a 4000 square ft facility and have weekly training for Combiners! Stay tuned for dates in April where CMC HQ will be traveling out to train with them. #cmctraining #cmc #cmcombine #dowork
Even @bricknewyork 's own little Zoe can't get enough of @customfitmeals . Last night @customfitmeals & @cmcombine hosted @bricknewyork FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS for the @crossfit #14.2openworkout!
