Kettlebell workout

Getting in to Kettlebell exercises. Lots of videos on youtube about it. Anyone else tried this?

What I like about it is that the exercises are inherently less boring than free weights so there is some enjoyment in it which makes exercise less of a chore. A certain sense of satisfaction in flinging the weights around.

Any exercise is probably useless in your case People have been building perfectly proportionate bodies for years lifting rocks, hay, wood and yes, kettle bells.

I like them. Bit more of a cardio component than regular lifts. You're not going to get all that big/strong from kettlebells, but they're a good change of pace and they certainly build core strength.

I have a pair of 50lb kettlebells that I have a routine for. It's great, I like it when I want to mix things up a bit.

They have their benefits lol. Kettlebell swings are lot more fun and intense than Kegels and you can target your glutes pretty hard with them.

I'm going to buy some selection kettlebells, kind of like powerblocks. Powerblock actually makes one but I don't like it, too bulky.

That would worry me with kettlebells. I really want something solid and regularly shaped. The cast iron ones are hard enough to stabilize.

I like the idea of variable weight kb's but there is always a tradeoff - center of gravity off, size (usually larger/less dense because of design constraints) or I would just feel reluctant to trust as much. The Weider one looks ok but I haven't seen or hefted one IRL.

This done with ~50lb (24 kg) - pretty impressive:

What the fuck. I just tried 100 of those and I don't know if I could keep that pace up for 10 minutes.
