Avoiding workout injuries

Orthopedic surgeon Hooman Melamed demonstrates a beginners use of a kettle bell at Spectrum in Santa Monica, Calif., on Tuesday, Dec. 17, 2013. These metal weights with handles have become popular in gyms, and they provide a great workout -– used properly. Melamed said he sees patients who get hurt when they swing the kettle bell too forcefully or too high, or when they try to hold too much weight too far away from their torsos.
