Discovering the kettlebell

Thursday, July 12, 2018

I've always seen kettlebells but never had the urge to try them. After some research, I decided to give it a try. O....M.....G. Within a matter of 26 minutes, I felt like I had run 3-4 miles with weights! I was tired, exhausted and sore! But, I feel like I got an amazing workout with it! I bought a 15-pound kettlebell since my research said you need something that you can "grow into". Once that becomes too easy, we will be moving onto a heavier weight. So far though, I can't do more than 5 reps of the exercises. But it's an amazing fitness tool!

    I have thought and thought about using kettle bells and even have a 5 and 10 pound set but as yet they only sit there gathering dust. I only seem to learn in a group setting, not from watching videos or reading. Glad you put your interest into practice and are enjoying the workout! Keep up the good work!
