    Magic Kettlebells - My pics :)

    When I joined this website I was not overweight but I was not happy with my weight having put on about a stone and a half in the last couple of years. So the challenge was to go from 10 stone 11.5 lbs to 9 stone 7 lbs - I've still got just over 6 lbs to shift I am a firm believer that changing your diet will only get you so far and that exercise plays a key factor in weight management. I embarked on an exercise programme using kettlebells for 20 mins 3 x per week and have been blown away by the way they have helped to tone my body. Just thought I'd share as it might convice others to dabble with kettlebells

    Wow Chickadee, I'm really impressed I absolutely love kettlebells. I've been doing them for the past 2 weeks now and I'm looking forward to some great results like you've achieved!! I'm doing Lisa Balash Kettlebell Bombshell, I think she is great (hence my avatar). I started with 7.5kg but struggled so now I also use 5kg (especially for the upper body workout).

    How did your improvement affect the size clothes you wear?

    Keep up the good work.

    Thanks mel.

    I was squeezing myself into a size 10 before I started( really I was size 12) now I can wear a size 10 comfortably

    I've heard of her- will need to check out some of her DVDs as I'm looking for a change from krttleworxs. I started with a 5kg but after about 4 weeks graduated to 7.5( although for some exercises I have to swap down)


    Good luck!!

    Hi Nicola

    To lose the weight has taken a while- started end of July but have had a couple of holidays in between and lots of socialising so that's why it's been so slow! I've been doing the kettleworx routine for 12 weeks, which really only equates to 12 hours of exercise so the results are very impressive!! I noticed results after only 3 weeks! I think kettlebells will defo help you because when you build muscle it helps your body to burn fat and calories, not just when working out but afterwards too the inches will melt off you using kettlebells , I guarantee it. Not only will you see the physical results but your fitness and strength will improve quickly and swinging that bell is such a good stress reliever If interested visit the link I posted above good luck
