In my opinion, an exercise program or tool is only good if it can keep you connected and enthusiastic about using it.
Kettlebells are great for this.
Now, let's pair them with great plans to use them sustainably.

With program samples and messaging, I'm here to help guide you to the training you are looking for. I cannot return purchases because they were too hard or easy. Perhaps a more personalized program would be for you.
They also sell a beveled edge competition version that may be the best kettlebell for beginners getting into high rep kettlebell training. This can cause decreased pressure on the forearm.
Shown are FATBELLS, which I love as well, and all KBOMG programs can be completed with Fatbells and KB.
Think of fatbells being a "KB/ Dumbbell Hybrid." A KB with a less steep learning curve for form.

Mobility app, coaching, injury protocols, and everything. I've been recommending The Ready State ( formerly Mobility WOD) since I took one of KStarr's first seminars after the Supple Leopard book was introduced.

Taking care of these muscles will allow you to train with a kettlebell for longevity as it goes a long way to prevent tendonitis and super-tight tissues in the lower and arm-hand.
Self Care videos are located on their site below.
