it seems to be the in thing ATM
I thought kettlebells were a few years old now, whereas Crossfit seems to be the latest ‘in thing’. Certainly huge in the US right now and cropping up in the UK as well, eg we now have two CrossFit ‘Boxes’ in Cambridge whereas we had none last year.Posted 4 years ago
I’m just starting out with kettlebells, its more of a CV workout as its not done by reps but time. In one session you hit all of your body but especially your legs.
The use of kettlebells is almost as old as the hills, used extensively by the russian military and their training isn’t too be sniffed at! They are good to have at home as they don’t take up much space and also make useful door stops!!Posted 4 years ago
Depends how strong he is, i’d guess 12kg will be more than enough initially but will prob need a 16 shortly after. You don’t want to go too heavy too early as he needs to get the movements correct first.
I find that some exercises i’m using 12s, some 16s and some 20s all in the same work out.Posted 4 years agopatriotproMember
What weights should I buy for him? He”s 16, broad, 6′ tall.
His width and height have nowt to do with what weight you buy.
As above get a 12kg, you’ll get at least a few months out of it and to be reaping full benefits, you will need to practice technique and 12kg is a good weight to learn good technique on.
Loads of stuff on YouTube and you’ll get a cast-iron bell delivered for under £30.Posted 4 years ago
