Kettlebells are probably lethal weapons, and you should approach them with extreme caution.

I almost knocked myself out doing kettlebell swings.

It was only my second time using one. The first time I used an extremely light weight to practice. But on this particular occasion, the coach told me to use 16 kg. Because the amount of weight was much different than I was expecting, I gave it an overzealous swing.  The kettlebell got stuck over my head and I had to do this awful maneuver to avoid knocking myself out.

Kettlebells have also been known to fly across the room like cannonballs if you aren’t careful about sweat minimization.

There is a lesson hidden in all of this, and that lesson is that kettlebells are probably lethal weapons, and you should be careful around them.

**Just a heads up that I’m doing some blog reconstruction over the next few days.  I am hoping to get some tabbed categories and fix some of the layout issues.**
