I ran across this crazy exercise, and wanted to know if anyone actually included them in your routine. They don't look very safe to me.
I do. What doesn't look safe about them?

No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?
I think it was the people i was watching, they we going really heavy and using some akward dumbells/barbells. The kettlebell looked a lot safer and the guy wasn't doing 135lbs-lol-

I do them with kettlebells and LIGHT kettlebells at that (20lbs at the moment, just started them). It's not an exercise that you need that much weight on.
I use it all the time. I also have people perform active neck movements at various points in the lift, to help ensure that they aren't drawing stability from their neck muscles.
