For whom the Kettlebell tolls ...
Just did my Kettlebell workout.
The best thing I like about my Kettlebell workout is the fact that if I only have 20 minutes to spare - I can still get a great overall strength and conditioning workout without having to pack my bag and head off anywhere. You can keep a kettlebell in the corner of your room - and it will just sit there and stare at you until you pick it up and start swinging it. Paint some eyes on - give it a name - call it Wilson ... the kettlebell is a great workout partner who will never say 'no'.
My workout is pretty simple (some of these kettlebell athletes do amazing things). I do two sets of ten of each of the following exercises:
- The Power Clean
- Single Arm Row
- Floor Press
- Front Squat
- Single Arm Jerk
- Kettlebell swing
- Pullover (laying on Swiss ball)
it's probably pretty lame workout by a serious Kettlebeller's standard but it gets my heart-rate up and I finish with a nice sheen of sweat and feeling in need of some protein. A quick and efficient work-out. If you want to know more about the many advantages of Kettlebell training there are stacks of good sites on the net.

Workout done - time for a snack - then off to pick up my boy Felix from school, then onward to the evening classes. Looking forward to them!
