Who can use kettlebells?

  • You and your mother (if your ego can handle it).
  • Athletes and Musicians
  • Children and their parents or grandparents
  • Men and Women

A better question is…

Who can’t use kettlebells?

  • I don’t have an answer for that one.  Anyone could use a kettlebell, however, some populations (i.e. pregnant women, people with heart conditions) will not be able to do every exercise.

So if everyone can use them and I’m a serious athlete, why would I choose a kettlebell?
