Is 1 ball enough or would I need various weights or is there a beginner ball weight any feedback would be greatly appreciated . . . . Thankyou
    Hiya

    I started as a complete beginner after having had a c section. You will ache like mad the first few times but you just need to listen to ur body. Most people start with a 5kg weight and move up from there when ready. I made the mistake originally and bought a 5lb one it really was too light.
    Best bell to go for would be an iron one as vinyl can be too bulky, I got mine from tesco and it was about 10. If you didn't want to invest in the kettleworx programme straight away there are plenty of you tube videos to get you started x

    Omg, I have had 3 months out and finally caved in to my inner trainer and dusted off my bells today!
    Thought I would break back in gently with fast fat burn and fast abs, managed a total of about 7 minutes of the 10 minute DVD and didn't even attempt fast abs!
    Hadn't realised how much I had achieved until I realised how unfit I have become!!

    It's a killer when you start back but at least you feel like you've done something the next day xxx

    Come on Emma! You can do it!
    I've not done for the last as I always workout with my stepsister and my brother in law watches all the kids. But his brother died suddenly last week and it's really knocked us all out of kilter x

    Hi

    The more I read about kettleworx the more I feel it could be something I'd enjoy & stick to. Argos sell 2 sets - the 6 week body transformation & 5lb kettlebell for 59.99 or the advanced training program & 10lb kettlebell for 49.99. I think the 5lb kettlebell would be too light but will the advanced training program be too hard?? Never done kettlebells before.

    Thanx

    I would definitely recommend the 10lb weight as a minimum. I started using kettlebells almost a year ago after reading about them on here. I was totally unfit and a real couch potato. I now use them at least 3 times a week and have progressed to 8kg or 20lbs. Would not be without it.

    Good luck and enjoy it

    Yes I totally agree, I love the kettleworx set but I'd try online ones first, in fact week one cardio (from kettleworx) is on you tube xxx

    Hi everyone! I just started doing kettleworx, I had tried one or two sessions long ago but then I gave in... Now I want to complete it! But... Where is everybody?? It seems so quiet here! It used to be so busy! I wanted to comment how much more difficult cardio is than core! I had a hard time completing it the first time and I repeated it, whereas with core it was really ok!

    Hiya,
    I think we're all still here, just not posting as much. Yes Cardio is a killer and Wk1 is the worst of them all. I always find core the easiest but hate that its 3 sets! you def gotta stick to it this time!!! What weight are you using?

    I'm still swinging too! Regular as clockwork. Use 8kg weight which I now find fairly easy. Hard to look back and remember hardly being able to get the weight in the air for the half get up. Will complete weeks 5 and 6 then think about introducing next weight up.

    In terms of discipline I keep telling myself it is only half an hour in total out of my day and I can do it at home. Where else could you get this good a workout in such a short time?

    Do stay with it. The impact on your shape is second to none. Good luck

    Thank you Daisy and Donzy!!! I started a foundation with 3 kg, about 6lbs and now I am using my 5kg! I just finished resistance week2 and I found it pleasantly (!) tough! I will try really hard not to let go this time as I am looking forward to see the changes and be just like you! I just have to get an iron cast kettlebell now as mine is vinyl coated and a little bulky! I am thinking of getting a traditional black bell and then paint its ball with a funky colour as I don't want a vinyl coating! What do you think? I will go for it in April to see what weight suits me more then! I love the fact that with 20-30 minutes 3 times per week I will get in shape!!! Keep in touch! Happy swinging!!

    So... I am about to choose my second workout for week 2. It will either be core or cardio... I am leaning towards core since I fear cardio.... It will either be later today or tomorrow! I am so looking forward to getting a good looking body!!
