Charles Poliquin is a professional trainer and authority in the fitness industry and has been around for a long, long time. His work and training methodolgy is often cited and his insight into training methodologies (for body builders) is much sought after by those in the know. So, why would someone who has all of this knowledge not go to the trouble of getting a little more experience and information before they propose changing the design of the Kettlebell? Check out this article on his website, along with the videos, to see what I am talking about. The fact that he mentions that a downside of the Kettlebell is that the handle doesn't rotate just exasperates the fact that it appears that he is looking at the Kettlebell as a different configuration of the Dumbbell. Read the article and watch the videos and let me know what you think! NOTE: thanks to Tony Rosa for bringing this article to my attention via Facebook.
