After a friend introduced me to kettlebell training, I ordered my own KB along with both the RKC [Russian Kettlebell Challenge] book and video. While just training three times a week, I felt that it was building functional strength, active flexibility, and cardio power. After my initial training sessions I noticed minor pains in my elbows and wrists. They faded as my tendons and ligaments started to strengthen and thicken, adapting to the ballistic shock. You don't get this kind of shock from the health club machines - they teach you to be slow and smooth and have zero impact. That would be OK except for one small thing... REAL LIFE! You get jarred around in real life - if you never train for it, you won't be able to handle it. Controlled ballistic training helps you handle shocks without getting injured as easily and feeling as sore afterward.
