I admit, over the last few months I’ve done little strength training. While I miss it, I’ve been more focused on cardio and being active in every day life. Strength training workouts have been few and far between without any kind of schedule. I miss the days of squats and lifting weights.
I’m hoping to incorporate more strength workouts and one thing I’m planning to try is kettlebells!
Say hello to my new kettlebells!
The awesome boyfriend knew I wanted to try out kettlebells so he got me one from Titan Fitness, a company I’ve mentioned before here in Memphis that makes fitness equipment. They sell things like squat racks and crossfit equipment and recently started selling kettlebells. Good timing for me!
I am obsessed with the 5 lb kettlebell simple because it was the first one I got and because it’s adorably tiny and cute. Plus I think a lighter size might be good for me to start and practice with for form. I’m sure I’ll use it but I also plan to use larger weight amounts.
What size do most people use? This is something I need to learn and will be looking into since I honestly have no clue how it compares to traditional strength training and sets of dumbbells. Do I need all of these? Or a select few?
The only problem I’m currently facing is lack of knowledge.
Everyone starts somewhere and we are all beginners sometimes. Right now, I’m a kettlebell beginner.
I haven’t used or really even seen kettlebells used before in person, so I’m going to have to do some research before using these awesome new toys in a real workout. I’ve played around with them but it’s time to hit Google and YouTube since I’ve got kettlebells itching to be used properly.
If you’re a kettlebell pro, or even just use them, please email me or drop me a link in the comments for kettlebell resources. I need to learn and I’m sure there are a billion places to get info, so if you guys have the best resource let me know!
