How far can I get with a single 25lb kettlebell?

I'm poor and the gym makes me nervous 🙁 I know I'm not gonna fitmaxx but is it good for a concise fullbody/cardio that doesn't take up too much time?

    Quite far if you can do turkish get ups, bottoms up presses and snatches, get some heavier bell when you feel lagging or losing motivation.

    Far if you're creative. Do Tims under tension or swing 50 per day and add complexes.

    I train with a 55 lbs one and you can get a solid workout. You're obviously not going to get an arnie-esque chest. But if you understand bio-mechanics you will be able to get some solid conditioning

    Pavel Tsatsouline has a book where he's trying to show that you can get very fit with no equipment at all, basically just making bodyweight exercises harder and harder by doing variations, thus making them as hard as weighted exercises. Like single leg pushups, pullups in weird angles, etc. So you can definitely do it my friend

      Naked Warrior. You can find PDFs of it everywhere. I highly suggest it once you get up to 100+ push ups.

      Look up Darbee's "Icon" workout and do that 3 times a week.

      Not even just harder variations, manipulate the force you output into each exercise, manipulate the time under tension on each portion of the movement, cause tension overload before grinding out reps and apply plyometrics.

      > Isometric holds till you shake both up and down.
      > Rep out as many push ups as you can with PERFECT form, no excuse.

        I do 60-70 minutes of nonstop kettlebell swings 3 times a week. I just set up in front of my TV and watch shit while swinging. Works up a sweat and I stand up as straight as possible for the rest of the day after.
        >can you do full body with kettlebells
        i mean technically probably yeah. you can do full body without any equipment at all (e.g. calisthenics), so why wouldn't you be able to do tons of full body exercises with an easily handleable weight?
        Some exercises make more sense with kettlebells. First of all, most dumbbell exercises can be done with kettlebells. I'm actually planning on buying pairs of kettlebells at 5, 10 and 15lbs, mostly for shoulder work and isolation exercises with the lats/back.
        For bigger compound lifts like squats and deadlifts etc, obviously there's a max weight you can do. You can't deadlift 400lbs with kettlebells. But you can go up to I think 70lbs with a single kettlebell, and you can also start doing exercises with a kettlebell in each hand. So you could for example chest press 100lbs with two 50lb kettlebells. Goblet squats are great.
        Hypertrophy is caused by a number of things; if you can get a pump, you'll get hypertrophy.
        Also - even if you can't go SUPER heavy with kettlebells, who cares? Do you need to go super heavy NOW? I'm a DYEL wimp, I don't need SUPER HEAVY for most of my lifts. So I could do a fair amount of MY hypertrophy training with kettlebells, if I wanted to. Not just one 25lbs kettlebell though, mind you. You could train for years before you exceed the weights kettlebells can bring.
        But with just one 25lb kettlebell yes you can do a lot. You don't need to swing it for an hour. Try swinging 10 in a minute or something like that, work up a sweat, get sore. You can surely accomplish that with a 25lb kettlebell.
        Also this
        there are many ways to increase difficulty and thus get more gains, BESIDES just adding weight.

    I would start with 35 if I could. Anyway it can get you pretty far if you are just starting out. Sure, you will outgrow it sooner or later but as a basic low cost tool it’s totally fine.
    Bodyweight excercises and things like snatches, presses, cleans, rows, squats, swings and floor presses are good for basic strength.

    Also worth remembering you can use this to add weight to dips and chin-ups etc, which would be very much worth doing as well.

    This plus basic calisthenics can get you pretty far if you're serious about your training.

    How can I tell if I'm doing kettlebell swings the proper way?

      It doesn't hit your dick you don't squat (crouch) to bring it back up, you let it drop down once its parallel about your shoulder height, not above head.

        I feel like I could be doing too much work with my arms and too little with my glutes/core/thighs but I'm not really sure.

          On the downswing, you should be getting your torso close to parallel with the ground, in order to load energy into your hamstrings, forearms coming to meet the inner thigh. The upswing you're snapping to attention at the waist, squeezing the glutes and core at the top. Don't think about working the arms, beyond treating them as chains that connect the ball to your shoulders. Think strong shoulder posture, and the hamstrings as the springs that are making you go.
