Kettlebell Safety Guidelines

  • Be aware of your surroundings.  Don’t train too close to people, pets, or objects.
  • Don’t use kettlebells on a surface you don’t want damaged.  There is always a possibilty you could drop it.
  • If a kettlebell starts to fall and you lose control, get out of the way.  Trying to recover a rep gone bad could lead to injury.  Push the kettlebell away from your body and step aside.
  • Treat even a light kettlebell like it is a heavy one.
  • Don’t over do it.  Kettlebell training is very different than cardio or traditional weight training.  It is wise to start slowly and gradually increase the volume.
  • If possible, get a training session from a certified kettlebell instructor.
