Kettlebells - A Unique Touch

by John

First of all, I'm a very athletic individual and I have used kettlebells in the past. They can work miracles.

The first time I used one, was when I was attending high school, which was more than three years ago. I had a working out partner who was Russian. He was the first one that introduced me to these magnificent kettlebells.

It's very similar to a dumbbell in many ways, but it has it's unique touch. I used to love using them to work out my back and my shoulders. For first time users, it can be a pain the ass, and it can be frustrating. Once you get the hang of it, it becomes easier. It's just like anything in this world. If we practice it, we will get better at it.

I used to own a kettlebell, when I was serving in the military. Whenever I didn't feel like going to the gym, I will work out in my own room with this bell. I used it for shoulders, triceps, forearms, etc. It can be used in many multiple ways, and the results are awesome. Unfortunately, I gave it away to some friend of mine. I was stationed in Okinawa, Japan, and i didn't feel like carrying it with me on the plane.

The kettlebell is a great item to work out with. I used it myself and it does work. Trust me.

"About 2 weeks ago I read all the ab strengthening stuff on your site because I decided I wanted to be strong, instead of having a lot of belly fat. So I started eating healthier, running, exercising, you name it - everything your site said to do to help. Now I am noticing a real difference! Thank you for making this. :D xD"

[This calorie calculator is] the most useful tool on the web that I can find… Also, I compared the calories calculated by your calculator to the calories calculated by the treadmill at my gym, and they're within a couple calories of each other, so yours is as accurate as we're going to get. REALLY AWESOME TOOL. I love it and depend on it. Thank you sooooo much for making this available."

Thank you very much, I was too lean before 2 years (55 Kgs), after the gym now I'm 72kgs, all the muscles have developed... when someone hand shakes with me it can be squeezed easily, they're making fun of me!
