The much awaited and anticipated kettle bells are here in the gym. All thanks to my manufacturer who was able to produce these wonderful piece of equipment. Training with kettle bells is turning out be fun and quite a challenge. At the gym many of us are learning certain kettle bell basic lifts: Cleans, Turkish get-up (lunge style), clean and press, bottoms up clean, bottoms up clean and press, etc. These training tools help us in spicing up our routines to an unmatched level. We have a pair of 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 kilo kettle bells.
It is surprising to know that innumerable workouts can be executed using a kettle bell, and I repeat that each workout is quite a challenge for it is a great learning experience. It is a very humbling experience when a small piece of equipment tries to fail you to complete the required movement. I had read about kettle bells being good for the core and stabilizers, but it is an altogether a different experience exercising with them.
Another addition to the gym is a pull up bar where we can perform a muscle up. I am making arrangements to attach a gymnastic ring to the pull up bar, for we can perform pull ups, push ups, L hold and few other movements on the rings.
Below is a picture of this training tool. Come join us and be humbled.
