I've been doing kettlebells exclusively since June 29th.
I always enjoyed them when they were programmed into our daily WOD's but was unsure how I'd like to do them as my only form of exercise.
The verdict is in.
I LOVE TO SWING!! Kettlebells people. I'm talking about kettlebells here. Jeez.
In 19 days I have lost 6 pounds. Since June 1st, I have lost 11 pounds.
I decided to swing as my only form of exercise (besides walking) because I'm injured on my right heel (Plantar Fasciitis) and on my left knee (I'm guessing over compensation from wearing a boot on my right foot at night.)
I've done 5,500 swings since June 29th, and today a friend gave me a nice compliment. She mentioned how lean I was looking through my shoulders and chest. Lean=muscular. Muscular=fit. And that's all good. I'm currently doing Russian Kettlebell Swings. And I'm following a particular program designed by one of my CEF coaches. It's 10,000 swings in 30 days. Today I just finished day 11.
My injuries are not healing as quickly as I thought they would have, so I'm likely going to continue on with strictly kettlebells for the near future. I've picked up a book: The Swing by
