Positives And Negatives Of YouTube For Learning How To Use Kettlebells

by admin on March 19, 2010

So I’m typically not one to say anything negative about other ‘fitness approaches’, if you will … with all the conflicting information out there, I think there’s a lot of perfectly fine ways to reach a goal, whether that’s gaining muscle, losing fat, etc.

However, I just wanted to give a quick example of what I’m talking about when I say that YouTube has some questionable instructional material with regards to kettlebell training … even when it comes to videos that have hundreds of thousands of views!  One of the main problems is that there’s some very good stuff on YouTube as well, and if you’re a newb, it can be hard to filter out the good and the bad.  If you will, let me know what you think about this particular video in the comments section of this post – I don’t think you even have to know much about kettlebell training to wonder wtf is going on here:

The moral of the story is to make sure you’re getting good, quality, qualified training advice.  If it’s kettlebell instruction you’re after, an RKC instructor is going to have the knowledge and experience to get you quality training and to help you learn the basic kettlebell movements safely and effectively.  ’Nuff said.  To find one in your area, click here.

That was pretty bad, and I just started with kettlebells. You can use youtube to your advantage by first seeing who is RKC certified (on dragondoor) and then only view those instructors on youtube.
