just completed my first kettlebell swings
I've been on slow carb for several months but for my exercises I've mostly done lots of fast walking as my primary exercise so. I decided to buy a kettlebell and start with some basic swings. I've waited to begin because I have lots of weight to lose, never been one who did any kind of sports etc. I also have been a little scared to begin since I don't want to hurt myself and slow my progress.
Today, I had my daughter watch a kettlebell youtube video to make sure I had the right posture and I then I completed 25 swings. That is a big accomplishment for me although I'm sure some of you might laugh as you are reading this. It's a start for me and am looking forward to doing more and becoming stronger.
Good for you! It's NOT a small thing! I started out slow too--I did less reps than Tim said to start with as well as slightly lighter than what he recommended because I didn't want to get hurt either, and, I wanted something that was doable for me so I kept with it (which for me is the bigger challenge--I usually start out strong with stuff but don't stick with it). I'm now doing 50 reps of 20#, and I hope to add more soon!
