Add Kettlebells To Your Home Gym
November 18, 2015 by
I remember the first time I had to do kettle bell exercises at crossfit. My arms were so sore afterward that I didn't think I would be able to drive home, since it hurt to turn the steering wheel. After a week of classes, I still felt the burn, but it was a bit easier to fight through. Now, I find myself wanting to do some light arm workouts on my rest days.
As you know, there is a free video for everything you can think of on YouTube. Before I purchased my kettlebells, I was looking for good kettlebell workout videos and practicing the movements with dumbbells. Of course, I could still do the workout with a dumbbell, but the width of my arms holding the ends of the dumbbell was a little annoying. I tried placing both hands in the middle of the dumbbell but both hands wouldn't fit without having to place one on top of the other. I found using an actual kettlebell a necessity. Just thought I'd mention that, since I've been asked.
Take a look at these two kettlebell workout videos I have tried and liked. Both from YouTuber Bodyfit by Amy. I'm going to be honest: When researching videos, I looked for one with a person who had a toned, muscular but still "feminine" body. I used to have a small waist, and I know what my dream body type is. So personally, I was looking for a routine to follow from someone who was fit, but didn't have a masculine body.
I bought a set of kettlebells and after trying two different types (one with soft handles and another identical to what's at the gym), I decided to share a post of some of my favorite kettlebell exercises and good kettlebells for home use.
