Thread: I got a kettlebell from wal-mart

I needed help with knowing if Gold's Gym kettlebells had defects, Teh El Macho has now explained to me that you need to wrap a towel around your wrist to protect it.
I also now know that I need a heavier one, but it isn't thoroghly clear to me as to why.
What have you noticed is the major difference between it and a comparable dumbbell?
I also wanted to ask so I know EVERYTHING THERE IS TO KNOW about kettlebells.
He's a good, smart guy and has been using the balls for quite some time.
i also wanted you guys to post some youtube videos, websites, or recommend where i can buy some DVD's for my kettlebell.
Start slow and get used to it.
I also don't know how to lift normal weights.( Shoulder flys, bicep curls, squats, ????)
That's all, though I might have missed something.
Do you want bigger or to lose weight.
Do you want to be stronger, leaner, faster....or do you want a bar-body?
what do you want?
Make up a comprehensive, well-thought list.....and start a thread in PT forum.
List you height, weight, how often a week you honestly train and in what. Admit if you eat **** food or slack off in class.
Be honest and forthright and the people of the site can help you.
Fucking TEM has a whole slew of at-home makeshift weights and exercises he can suggest for your specific needs.
But do it in PT with what your specific goals are for your specific body and mindset.

When I do regular barbell training at the gym I use a 5x5 program. I start with a weight I can do 7 reps with and then do 5, rest then do another set, ect. always stopping a rep or two before failure. When I can to a full 5 sets of 5 reps I increase the weight. But with kettlebells, the jumps are bigger so you have to use your judgement. It takes some expirence, but if money is tight, just wait until you can tons of reps easy.
Here's a simple barometer of sucess: when you can do 200 snatchs in 10 minutes.

Dang Snake, I thought this was a pretty good thread already.
I do eat **** food, and I do eat more than I should. I think I might have an eating disorder.
I'm 5'10, large build, broad shoulders, short strong legs. last time I checked I was 217lbs. 10oz.
I want to be lean, stronger in my upperbody, and I don't want mass.
I want to be in fighting shape, my Coach recomended I drop to 185lbs, AKA middleweight.
My target weight is 163lbs to 179lbs. I want to be a welterweight MMA fighter.
I never slack off in class, I do both MT and BJJ classes as much as possible which is in an average of 3-4 times a week.
I'm not smart enough to keep a training log, it's a miracle if I turn it into a habit.

Razamataz when you do the 5x5, does the weight stay constant?

Just get your act together and think about a few thing. Make a list, order your life.
You wana drop weight? Burn more than you put in, go down healthy and with your goal you are looking at a year, maybe one and a half.
You wana fight? Focus on one thing, if you approach your MT and BJJ training like the rest I see from you on this board, you are not progressing anytime soon. Don't think of two or three steps ahead (advanced technique) focus on the tast at hand. Learn how to throw a jab, a cross and a hook, nothing more. Learn how to get guard and focus on one or two sweeps and one or two subs and then report back in two months. With your training at this rate this should be a realistic timespan. Also give your body time to rest and stop making up excuses for not being able to do thing. :XXbirdman
