The kettlebell is one of the most underrated yet one of the most beneficial training tools for the average fitness enthusiast. If you are one of those who doesn’t aspire to be a world-class athlete but instead just wants to be a little bit stronger, a little bit more muscular, and have a little bit more endurance, then kettlebell training is for you.

Through kettlebell training, I built muscle and strength and improved my mobility. I went back to running and remained injury-free.

But kettlebell training not only injury-proofed my body. It also completely transformed my relationship with it.

And while I am convinced that kettlebell training is one of the best ways to train your body, I am also aware that starting your kettlebell journey can be confusing and painful.

As a beginner, you may ask yourself questions like:

  • What weights should I use?
  • How many kettlebells should I buy?
  • What type of kettlebell do I need?
  • Why does the skin on my hands tear, and how can I avoid it?
  • What are the best exercises for [your goal]?
  • What is the best training program for [your goal]?
