Kettlebell exercises can be a great way to work out and improve fitness, however when done incorrectly it can cause damage and may even be dangerous. This is why it is important to know what you are doing and to be taught by an instructor who knows the risks of using kettlebells and how to avoid injury.
Using kettlebells for exercise
If you attend a kettlebell class you expect that the instructor or trainer will know what they are doing and will teach you safely how to exercise using these weights. In some cases though this is not what happens and injuries can be suffered from using kettlebells in the wrong way. For instance, if a kettlebell swing is not completed correctly it can cause a kettlebell class injury because of the unnatural movement of the weight. Moving the wrong parts of your body can cause injuries such as back pain and strains.

For kettlebell classes especially, it is very important that class instructors are trained in the method of exercise they are leading.
