I've been interested in getting into kettlebell workouts for some years but never made the leap. Last week on a lark I bought a 35lb kettlebell at Dick's Sporting Goods and did the normal YouTube/Google binge to learn. There's a lot to learn and go through. My first few workouts were really fun, hard work to focus on the techniques and moves and I enjoyed - greatly - the challenge. So I started training, working on form and technique in the midst of my normal workouts and after a bit of a layoff due to having been so sick the last two weeks (bronchitis). My plan is to work this into my normal fitness regime; I am very active, play competitive 'old man' soccer weekly, have a varied and long past of working out - weights, cardio, HIIT, bodyweight, TRX, P90X, yoga, etc., etc,. I enjoy what I do to stay in shape but as with all things I am always looking to add in more variety and challenges. I am a stickler for form and with big macro-movements and complexes for Kettlebells that is of course of primary concern. So, I have a pebble of knowledge, the very beginning of any experience and wanted to short cut some learning/research on Kettlebells and workouts in general because there are some hardcore guys here with years of experience and in general, every time I post something like this I get some very good helpful information from knowledgeable people. I am looking at getting a range of kettlebells as I progress and have found this site as a source for the actual Kettlebells (after a lot of Google searches and reading forums, etc): http://www.kettlebellkings.com/ I am most interested in the competitive range of kettlebells so they will last the longest and I can work with them for probably as long as I am physically able as I age (I'm 48 so I'm thinking... about another 100 years or so will do. ) I'm a 'buy right, buy once' guy. Am I on the right track for the gear? Sources for workouts/videos/training? I am in SE Michigan and am notoriously a 'lone wolf' type of self-motivated workout-at-home guy but obviously the best thing is to take some classes or private lessons to check on form (I did the same with the TRX and Yoga before I could form my own workouts that I do at home). Anyone have good online resources or any tips for finding good instruction in my area? Thanks for any input!
