Or rather, the basics of kettlebell training.
Anyone looking for the basics of kettlebell training, should start in this order:
1. understanding
2. low reps
3. simple exercises
4. light weight
5. improve technique
6. increase reps
7. increase complexity
8. increase load

Lay a foundation upon which you can built for years to come. Assuming you know zero about kettlebells, a simple progression to the king of kettlebell exercises, the snatch, is:
1. bodyweight squat
2. assisted clean
1. hand insertion
2. racking
3. dead clean
4. pressing
5. bodyweight hip hinge
6. deadlift or hang lift
7. double arm swing
8. single arm swing
9. swing clean
10. high swing
11. snatch
