What Do You Want From Your Kettlebell?

Out of ideas for today so I wondered if you'd consider doing me a favor, please?

I want to right about what you are looking for as you develop a relationship with your kettlebell or kettlebells. I will be able to develop some excellent blog posts from what you share with me.

Write a quick note in the "Comments" area below and tell me what you need. Or you can email me at sandysommer at charmcitykettlebells.com

All the best and I thank you for stopping by!

I was thinking about doing small circuits(routines) to avoid long sessions, maybe 10 to 15 minutes workouts, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Is that possible? Can I get good results by doing that?

I'm a 38 y.o. guy with 2 small children (1,3), kettlebells are sometimes billed as a way to "functional strength." I want to be able to pick up my kids and have fun with them now and when they get bigger. So, I suppose I'm looking for good full body movements that emulate the kind of things you do when you play with your kids. Sometimes my daughter refers to this as "playing jungle gym." And of course, you need be build enough wind to play for a while, it would be a rare day without the words "do it again, do it again!"

Hi Sandy

I'm going to be really boring with my comment, there's not much "backstory" to it. My aims from using kettlebells are three-fold: 1) greater functional strength; I want to be able to lift that bag/table/wheel/dog with ease,
2) greater endurance; I want to stop doing something because I choose to, not because I have to
3) improved flexibility, range of motion and balance; I find that I am limited in too many of my activities by my lack of joint flexibility and range of motion.

You can definitely get great results by doing a few short but intense sessions daily.

That's me. I'm 47 with a 4 year old dynamo for a son. "Again, again" is a refrain I love and abhor:)

I think you will see real and true improvement in all the areas you mention. My 2 years with the kettlebells has been life changing for this old man.

Thanks! You all have given me some great ideas for blog posts!

little late with this but here we go;

I want to decrease my 1.5 mile running time (down to 9 mins or so)

I want to reduce body fat %.

I want functional strength.

I DONT want any of the chronic injury that comes that runners get from pounding the tarmac everyday but I want the stamina they have.

Lets see!
