OK I guess this is where this project should go.
I'm working on improving my lifestyle, I'm eating better, and I try to walk 5Km each day. I decided to add some weight lifting to my routine, but I don't want to add a bench etc. I want to do something dynamic, and I have a number of friend who have gotten into the whole Core Fitness movement. Kettlebells looked good, but they are spendy and not common uhere in Tokyo. I do have the flat plates from some dumb bells, so I wanted to use them, this is what I came up with......
Each as it sits weighs about 16 lbs
The bottom piece unscrews and you can add or remove plates.
A short video showing how the kettlebells are used. I'm just doing the basic two handed swing right now and I have to say it is one heck of a work out!
It sure is nice to have the tools to be able to just make stuff!
