Kettlebells



  • Long time trainer , in a rut been doing a similar routine for what seems like years ,

    At the Gym

    monday - Chest - Biceps,

    Wednesday - Back - traps - abs

    Sat - Shoulders Triceps

    Sun - Legs,

    run on a tuesday, ride a bike on a thursday,

    been hearing alot about kettlebell training and keen to give it a go to do something different , only done a litle bit of the basics , Im currently just getting the two armed swing right

    alot of the power lifters and MMA fighters are right into it,

    Does anyone have any experience ? how do you find it etc ?



  • I've been searching for some good kettlebell stuff too, found this one which looks pretty good )one of the better ones I found) I just need more weight...

  • Been using KBs for the last few years. Love them. The handle just makes them so much easier to grip and do a range of exercises than a dumbbell.

    One and two arm swings, Turkish getups, 1-arm Overhead squats, 1-arm clean and press

    The swings done with good form are one of the best full body exercises around IMO. Great for both strength building and for busting a gut.



  • Check out my Fat Buster thread and you will see quite a few KB work out variations. The KB's are absolutely hell, but you will end up loving them

    Yeah, as soon as I saw this thread title I thought of your program you do a interesting variety of exercises with these.

    I generally do the two handed swing with the 24kg, and just kills your entire body, just an awesome workout. Still working up to the 32kg one....



  • love kettle bells. I would get a trainer to take you through something like Turkish get-ups as there are lots of different elements to it. If you can download apps - take a look at the Samuel Pont ones - he's got kettle bell drills for fitness, weightloss, muscle building etc
