Kettlebell 101

Just bought my first kettlebell!  Shockingly nobody carries them around here.   Well, just the little 5, 8, 10 pound ones.  I like how kettlebells started as “Here’s a big ball of metal with a handle on it.”  I started reading about kettlebells somewhere around 15 years ago, and back then you just used “a kettlebell” and that was it. (at least that is how I remember it…)  It was heavy, and you had to deal with it.  Now the marketing people have gotten a hold of them and there are tons of different sizes, colors, coatings, and even “soft” ones that conform to the shape of your forearm so you don’t get a sore spot.  Aww, how sweet…

That being said, there’s no way I could deal with a 53 lb. (24 kilo) kettlebell right now, so I opted for smaller since they are available.  I only picked up a 25 lb. one but was looking for a 35-40.  Couldn’t find one in a store except Dick’s and they wanted $90 for 45 lbs.  I got mine for $38 which is $1.55/pound.  Dick’s wanted $2.00/pound.  Ouch. At least I’m not paying shipping. 🙂

Can’t do THIS with dumbbells!
