So what's a "kettleball"? Sounds like something to be avoided! MD fans need to know.

Pavel Tsatouline is the sadistic torturer who invented kettlebells. Okay, he didn't actually invent them, but he resurrected them from obsolescence and publicized them.

MD

kettleballs are these weird round iron-y things with a handle. Like a bowling ball with a handle, except they are in a range of sizes corresponding to different weights. I do these squatting excercizes with them and it's, uh, kind of energy-depleting. That's how I feel. But apparently they really work at building strength.

Tell me again, why do you chose to torture yourself?

MD

Tatyana, I feel compelled....actually, with a trainer it's easy. They tell you what to do and you do it. It's sort of social and a stress release. Plus, it feels cool to accomplish something physical :)
