ON THE BEAT: Kettlebell workouts pack a wallop

Have you ever tried kettlebell workouts? For such unassuming pieces of equipment, they pack a wallop. Try following the movements, and you’ll get a new appreciation for a phenomenon called instantaneous muscle failure. OK, OK, so it wasn’t that bad, but if you’re into working out with weights — or even with gym equipment — you have to learn to move in a different way. Not a bad way, just a different way. And, if you’re like me, there’s always the chance to provide the rest of the class with a little comedic relief. Hey, I never said I was coordinated.
