My local sainsburys have got loads of gym stuff on up to 70% off at the moment.. and they've got some kettle bells - I had been looking at them for a while.. so have decided I'm going to take the plunge and buy one this morning!
Would you recommend buying a specific DVD/guide.. or are there any particularly good videos that I could use on youtube?
Really excited about starting on these. With the combination of Jenny Craig (essentially a 1200cal diet) and the bells, I'm hoping to get some great results! Thanks for the motivation x
I've heard people talk about the sale on kettlebells in sainsburys and tesco at the moment!
If you go to page 1 I have posted a link to a group on here with plenty of info about DVDs, you tube links and everything you need to know about kettlebells! The only DVD I have used is called kettleworx which is a 6 week programme broken into 3 20 minute sessions; cardio, core and resistance! I'd defo recommend it as the results are amazing! Good luck!
i also would like to add the kettlebells are excellent for body shape, i do 4 40 min classes per week and have been doing them since april. i use 4kg for the boxing moves, 8kg for all the arm lifts and swing with a 12kg kettlebell. i really recommend them.
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
I started using kettlebells 2 weeks ago, although I'm only using them 10-15 minutes a day on top of cardio they definitely do work. 10 minutes of using kettlebells has the affect as running on a treadmill for 45 minutes!!
I use a 7.5kg for everything, I will get a 5kg though because I find some arm lifts hard with a 7.5kg - I dont really want to do any damage. I think I could go heavier for the swings, probably to 12kg - it would probably be easier than 7.5kg because of the momentum but I can't afford a 12kg at the moment. I'm a student and kettlebells are expensive although absolutely worth every penny. Seriously, anyone thats reading this DO NOT HESITATE and start kettlebells NOW! lol
