Thumbs up 4200 Kettlebell Swing Challenge!

There is 6 weeks until the year ends.
this is an inspiration thread from another forum i joined and i thought it woud be great.
Who would like to join me in a kettle bell challenge 100 swings a day until the end of the year thats 4200 kettlebell swings, you can do more each day if you choose and finish earlier.

If youíre looking to burn an enormous amount of calories, sculpt and tone lean muscle and feel incredible, KettleBell training is for you! Although Kettlebells have just become immensely popular in the fitness industry, kettlebell training is NOT new. Kettlebell training has been around since the early 1900′s.

Benefits of Kettlebell Training
■Total body conditioning: Kettlebell exercises are meant to work your entire body. While it may seem that you are really working your shoulders or legs, kettlebell exercises call on nearly every muscle in your body to perform a movement. This is unprecedented fat burning and muscle sculpting at its finest!
■More results, less time: Because each kettlebell exercise works multiple muscles, you donít need to spend hours in the gym. Even a 30 minute power workout will get you incredible results.
■Lean muscle development: Because kettlebell exercises use light weight with repeated repetitions in a fast and concise movement, kettlebell exercises have lean, sculpted bodies. Kettlebell exercises are NOT used to develop bulky or thick muscles. This is particularly appealing to women.
■Major calorie burning: The American Council on Exercise estimates that Kettlebell workouts burn approximately 20 calories per minute, thatís 1,200 calories an hour! To burn that many calories, you would need to run a 6 minute mile for about 20 minutes straight!

This sounds awesome. I'm in! I love doing kettlebell workouts. I've been doing them for about a year.

So far I've done 60 today (with 25# kettlebell). I'll get at least another 40 in this evening with my 15# at home.

I am the newbie here with a 5 pound kettle ball, but I will do it. What a great work out for the arms in addition to the work out that came with my ball!

Welcome Ksquared and good job!

BABYPHAT, you'll be at a 25# in no time.

I did a total of 150 yesterday. 60 with the 25# and 90 with the 15#. Today is going to be a busy day so I'm hoping to get my 100 swings in this evening.

Have a great day!

I ended up doing another 75 on Saturday so that got me to 200. I didn't do any yesterday. So far, I've done 600 swings. Only 3600 more to go!

Hoping to get in at least 100 tonight. I plan on taking my KB with me for the Thanksgiving holiday. Hopefully this time, I'll actually use it rather than just haul it around.

I did 300 swings last night (6 sets of 50) with the 15#. So, that's 900 so far. Only 3300 left!
