I just got home from trying kettlebell. It was so much fun - I loved flinging the big metal balls around. I also liked that the intense periods of activity were short - I didn't get bored, but I was working hard. I found the moves challenging. I'm very active in another sport and I wanted something that would me achieve explosive strength and speed in that sport, as well as improving my overall fitness and rate of fat loss.
I liked it so much I signed up for two months of twice-a-week classes. I hope to see some sort of results by the end of the year, and based on my experience tonight, I don't think I'll be disappointed. I know I'm going to have some serious muscle soreness tomorrow or the next day - can't wait to see what hurts the most!
My questions for you kettlebellers are:
1. How long have you been doing it?
2. Have you seen results (in fitness abilities and/or physical appearance)?
3. If so, can you share what they were and how long they took?
The threads on kettlebells here on 3FC are what motivated to me to try this, so thanks to all who shared! I'm excited about this new activity.
