Since getting my kettlebells and learning some of the many techniques, I have tried to work out with them weekly. I feel a lot stronger from just the first few sessions and I certainly feel good. Today I am 220 pounds and I am working toward performance goals instead of numbers on a scale.
Basically, I need to find metrics for a goal that will be something like number of pullups, 400m sprint time, max # of Turkish Get-Ups in one minute, etc to use as a goal. My left shoulder really gives me some grief when using the bells, but that is nothing new; one of these days I will go have them lightsaber it out.
