Interesting Read: "Kettlebells: Twice the Results in Half the Time?"

I found a pretty interesting article citing an American Council on Exercise (ACE) study conducted about the science behind kettlebell training. I wanted to share it with those of you wondering why 'it' works.  It was a solid study. 

Note: I do encourage you to take the article for what it's worth and not to get lost in the technicality of the VO2Max discussion, especially if you are new to kettlebell training or have no desire to learn the science behind it.  I just thought this particular ACE article was informative, shared an interesting study, and introduced some of the reasons why kettlebell training is so effective.  We had a long discussion about VO2Max training around 2006 on the AoS forums.  Anthony DiLuglio released an early minute of strength about not getting lost in the details around it, and I couldn't agree more. VO2Max is a seperate discussion, and if you're interested, you'd be well served in checking out Kenneth Jay's articles & DVDs on the subject over at

Anyway, check it out and see what you think -
