    The only exercises I have sceduled for myself are swings and a thing called a getup, which much like the name implies you start lying on the ground, pick up the kettlebell extend your arm up into the air and get up to a standing position with your arm still above your head, then lie back down (that would be 1 rep). From that description, getups would be a whole body work out...
    you could prob do a getup with a clubbell or a dumbbell as easily. kettlebell swings i found annoying and kinda ridiulous like burpees. i just used you-tube for my clubbells as i was not aware any books had been written on them. i got mine to strengthen my rotator cuff as i kept tweaking it and i had read they were good for that. i love them. kettle bells i have only found up to about 10kgs in the gyms i have been to and they are way too light for me to do that much with. i did find a 33kg kettle bell in a shop once which cost pretty close to the national debt. i could walk with a pair of them. i can lunge a pair of 26kg dumbbells. but for the money, it isnt worth it at all. i am better off piggy backing one of the kids and lunging them! i have glass cover on my house insurance so i would be sweet if i accidentally threw a kettlebell thru a window LOL

    Dragon Door Publications has a few books on clubbells, and they sell them as well. The kettlebell I bought to start with is a 20lb/9kg. Pavel says that men should start with a 16kg kettlebell.... OK I have 5 gallon waterers for my chickens, a gallon of water is @ 7lb, so that waterer weighs about the same as a 16kg kettlebell.... hauling water around in one of those kicks my tail.... I can only imagine what doing a getup with one would do to me......

    dragon door books are pretty expensive if you factor in shipping as i dont do e-books. i am old school in that i struggle to read books or long articles on a computer screen. i was doing swings with the 10kg kettlebell and i am little so you will be fine swinging a 9kg one. it does get very very boring doing swings. after a while you suspect it is only good training for getting a job as a church bell ringer ( they do have a name which i cant remember ) and then your eyes glaze over and it is around about then that you end up in danger of taking out a window.

    Yes DD books are expensive.... I would rather hold a book in my hand and read it rather than read from a Nook or Kindle.

    Church bell ringer? Not a large demand for those.... and I haven't been to church in years, so I doubt that I will be applying.... My swings are supposed to be a timed session, at 12 minutes, and the getups are timed at 5 minutes then I will do a run afterwards, so hopefully my mind won't get too numb.

    me neither!!! i doubt they would have me either too LOL 12 mins of swings would be all over. i need to exercise in a way that makes me love the pain and i so dont enjoy swings. i'd rather run up a muddy hill for 12 mins. or down a very sand dune being chased by sealions. or punch a boxing bag. but clock watching exercises do my head in. each to their own tho. 2 funny. i was googling church bell ringer to see what the proper name is and i found this in wikipedia about the hazards of church bell ringing!

    "In the Middle Ages, it was believed that the sound of a bell could disperse thunder. A large number of bell-ringers were electrocuted as a result. In France between the years 1753 and 1786, 103 bell-ringers were killed during thunderstorms as a result of holding on to wet bell ropes. The Parlement of Paris enforced an edict in 1786 to forbid the practice "

    i so need to stick to bondage and mud wrestling i reckon!

    it goes on to say

    "Deaths likely continued until the 19th century, when the lightning rod came into general use." so she should be safe. who would have known tho. i have seen a grave in a very old church yard in england of a girl who was killed by lightning whilst saying her vespers. but never seen any evidence church bell ringing was potentially very terminal.
