    What is it about fat people that draws them to kettlebells? I just don't get why they have to try everything that doesn't work before they finally get around to what would be the first choice for every sane person with eyes.

          The only advice is, pick a modality you'll stick with. Cardio is easiest but if the guy loves kettlebells, and thats what it takes to be consistent, let him use that.

      It's a good mix of cardio and strength training, while also being minimalistic and only needing a few pieces of equipment. It's a good way for beginners to get into lifting without having to learn five barbell compound lifts off the rip.

      This and this.

      Kettlebells are a fine way to begin your fitness journey. I use kettlebells and work in a manual labouring job. I am stronger than the majority of men there, the only one who is stronger is a guy who does barbell lifts but I have better endurance than him anyway and am still going hard at the end of a 10 hour day.

      He's a little bit fat though, so it's more likely his endurance issues are due to poor cardio not his choice of strength training instrument

    >Do I buy a set of barbells or kettlebells?
    Why not both?
    The advantage of kettlebell swings over jogging is that it will be easier on your joints. Barbell lifting will not help you burn a huge amount of calories in the same way that doing swings for 45 minutes will. The way to do swings is by sets of 10 explosively, resting enough to catch your breath somewhat (enough to speak) but still breathing heavily.
    Kettlebells can be fun but its not magic, you are going to have to either count calories or do one or two day fasts to lose weight.
    Bench, deadlift, rows etc with barbells will help you build or maintain muscle during your diet. If I were you I would buy barbells if I had space. It really depends on circumstances though. Do you live in Scotland and its always raining outside? Then do kettlebell swings. Do you live in Portugal and can take long walk in the hills every day? Maybe lift four times a week and hike to burn fat.

      It really doesn't, especially if you're comparing it to actual cardio like jogging or swimming. It's also a colossal waste of time if you're using it for cardio. Again, like 10-15 minutes of jogging or swimming will outpace 45 minutes of kettlebell circlejerking.

      You technically don't need fricking anything to exercise, so any moronic influencer/coach can say literally any single piece of shitty equipment is all you need and create a garbage program around it.

      I sound like I'm super against kettlebells: I'm not. I'm against people bending over backwards to try to find one magical piece of equipment or one magical super easy routine. Fatties and other morons put in a ridiculous amount of research to try to avoid basic lifting, cardio, and diet advice. Stop trying to reinvent the wheel. Stop being afraid of traditional training methods. Stop coping. The amount of time you've spent THINKING and PLANNING about all this shit could've been used to actually lift.

        Do ten uninterrupted minutes of snatches and say the same thing and I'll believe you, no questions asked. There's a reason the secret service uses a snatch test with a 24kg bell as their primary GPP test. But if you do it and tell me running is better, I'll trust you.

        Thats like saying 10 minutes of jogging will outpace 45 minutes of sprinting or 400m training.. Of course you could just sprint, take a short break, sprint again etc for 45 minutes. However, doing kettlebell swings will also improve your grip strength and your back strength in addition to legs.
        I think hill sprints are great, nothing against them but comparing kettlebell swings to jogging is nonsense, unless youre using an 8kg kettlebell.

      You go for higher reps, longer complexes and shorter rest periods.
      You have hypertrophy from 5-30 reps per set. If you can clean andpress and squat double 24s for 30reps and 5 sets your pretty strong.

      they make adjustable kettlebells. Wiith static weighted ones you do different movements to increase the difficulty with the same weight, and increase time spent doing it. The general progression is

      It's not about lifting the heaviest kettle bell possible. It's about getting your heart rate up and working your whole body. Kettlebells excel in off balance training, lifting with weight on one side only. Barbell/machines train with everything perfectly balanced, kb let you train off balance to strengthen the stabilizers.

    They don't take much space
    They can be used for a wide variety of lifts including cardio and conditioning
    They are FUN

    Having weights in my room reduces friction to nothing which makes it more likely that I will exercise, the lifts are fun which also make it more likely that I will actually use them.

    You fatties will do everything, like quibble over which style of training is best and make dramatic statements about fixing your life, except actually go exercise.

    At this point, you're so out of shape that literally ANY activity will help. If you walked an hour a day, and counted calories for a year, then you would no longer be fat.

    I call these "Karelins" after Aleksandr Karelin, because he's the one who originally showed these to me.
    I do this exact workout and it's great. It's an all encompassing arm workout. Out of the 10+ years I've lifted, I've never found one more efficient.

    I used to do normal standing OHP, but it was more upper chest and shoulder focused, I found. Karelins work the entire arm starting from the shoulder and lats and into the biceps, triceps, and then finally the forearms when raised overhead. I like to do 40 pounders for 20 reps and 2 sets then I decline to 1 set of 30 pounds (each hand).

    It feels fricking amazing and I encourage everyone to start doing them. It feels like I've unlocked some sort of esoteric knowledge.

    start with lightweight db's and kb's. You don't need to buy them, just join a gym.

    If you're fat the last thing you need to do is start trying to lift stupid weights and put your body under immense strain.

    You are most likely unconditioned and not very mobile. You need to start very VERY light and train until you can reach full range of motion at those light weights.

    You NEED to do cardio. As someone overweight you are at higher risk of diabetes and heart disease. Again, start very very gently and build up. Keep intensity low but good consistency and you will be surprised how fast you see changes in your self.

    If running is too intense on you then start by walking. Start at a mile every day. Then once a mile is comfortable go to 2miles. Once you are doing 10k steps a day consistently start jogging.

    Honestly the no.1 issue I see with overweight people getting back into fitness is not understanding how immobile their body is, going too hard and injuring themselves.

    You need to start this fitness journey as it could literally save your life but you also need to be clever about how you train.

    IMO, save your money on the DB's and hire a coach to do personalised programming for you. Find a good coach, not someone who's just started or a 'personal trainer' who you meet once a week and they do a work out with you. Preferably you need a coach that covers a multitude of disciplines especially athletic and not just gym bro shit which wont actually improve your health massively.

    Spend the money on yourself, invest in you and reap the rewards in years to come.

    If you can afford floor protection, bench, squat rack, maybe a yoga mat for your workout space, buy the barbell, hundred percent, KBs are great for apartment minimalists, barbell and squat rack will be the way to go if you can afford it space and money wise.

    They aren't a meme if you do 1 min of long cycle or swings powerfully every day 3 times a day for both hands, they are a really mean olympic/wrestling training tool. Barbells will be better in the long run however.

          I'm from Belarus and I see kettlebell competitors all the time, most of them look like total DYELs. Levi Markwardt, Alexander Kolousek (kettlebell_aerobics), guy from OP pic all had like 10 years of regular berbell training before turning to kettlebell sport. Ivan Denisov trained greco roman wrestling before turning to kettlebell sport and still trains with barbell (I believe he deadlifts 300 kg). Every time some big dude jerking 24 kg kettlebells says kettlebells make you big and strong you should know - he did regular strength training before it.

            Correct and true post. Kettlebell sport is cool and using it as inspiration for your own training can be very beneficial, but if you specialize at throwing around a set weight for the rest of your life, with form optimized for endurance, you will be sorely missing out on the rest of your physical capability.

        Lower
        3 sets single leg deadlifts x 12
        3 sets hardstyle swings x 30
        3 sets see saw lunges x 5 each side
        3 sets snatches x 8
        3 sets pistol squats x8 followed by 40 pushups

        do each day twice a week with an occasional additional lower day depending on my schedule. This is in addition to 4 days of bjj training

        the weird numbers in there are progressive overload.

          whats an over head raise? Whats a vertical row?
          How long have you been doing this for? Did you do barbells previously?

    They are legit. I have a small kettlebell collection at home, been training with them since 2016.
    It's important to have proper expectations if you want to be a productive kettlebell user - they will not make you big and strong like traditional lifting would. They will make you more athletic in general - you will get leaner, quicker, more mobile, you will have okay strength and more than okay stamina.
    I would compare doing 50 kettlebell swings to an all out 100m sprint. Do it 5x per training session and you'll see how kettlebell training makes sense - it's a super simple, convenient and guaranteed way to max out your heart rate

    It is a weight, you pick it up and put it down, the effect is essentially the same as any other modality, you simply cannot perform the same exact exercises as other modalities allow due to its form factor, but with consistency and a healthy variety of exercises, you can get fitter than most people using kettle bells, generally kettle bell exercises are low impact and can be easily stored in a persons home, they are also more affordable, initial investment is essentially nothing since you only need 1-3 in increments of 35, 44 and 54 pounds (26, 35 and 44 if you are a woman or out of shape), you can double up with an additional set if you find they are to your liking, with wood floors I'd recommend getting a stand or mat to sit them on in order to distribute the weight more evenly to prevent spots in floor from sinking.

    Didn't read the thread, but you probably don't need weights at all.
    The most important thing you can do is to eat less. I'm serious, every obese person I've met seems to think there's some easy way out like exercising more or only eating certain kinds of food. The only thing which will work consistently is to count your calories and make sure they're at a deficit using an app like MyFitnessPal. Or at very least, to make sure you're predominantly eating high-volume low-calorie whole foods, and keeping yourself in a constant state of being a bit hungry.

    If you want to exercise (and you should), spend the money on a smartwatch and look up "zone 2 cardio". For you, that will probably just be walking, and that's completely fine. Don't work yourself too hard, real life isn't The Biggest Loser and that kind of stuff isn't good for you.
    If you want to mix in some strength stuff, try something like this.

    Here is level one for friends I have helped become health. I dont know you but here was what my friends lives were like.
    >zero exercise
    >3-4 massive meals of slop
    >inconsistent insane sleep schedules
    I am going to assume you are the same.

    What seems to work is making a small improvement on all three things, making them a habit, then adding a little more. We found trying to do too much didnt work. May take a month, may take more.
    Level 1
    >get a healthy breakfast. 2 scrambled eggs on toast with some fruit. Black coffee.
    >walk 20-30 minutes everyday
    >get sleep discipline. Try and get your 8 hours a day. Sleep is so incredibly underrated as a health builder.

    Also, we found that they loved their massive high calorie coffees (caffeine) and gallons of Dr Pepper (caffeine). Thats why we added black coffee for breakfast. Kill the desire for caffeine with a low calorie option.

    If you are set on getting into kettlebells, get a 16 or 24 kg bell and do swings for 20 minutes three times a week.
    >how many swings per set?
    Swing until you begin to feel fatigue and then rest
    >how many sets?
    Rest between sets until the fatigue is gone.

    The amount of reps and sets will change day to day. Just be consistent and allow your body to adapt.

        Perfect. Do 20 minutes of swings three days a week. Keep it simple and consistent. To keep it fresh and exciting, you can choose between two-hand swings and one-hand swings. Master this movement before considering adding others.

    I'm aware the weight balance is different but can I just use the dumbbells I already have to do swings? They're the cheapo spinlock ones so I could put more weight on one end if it mattered

      Yeah, look at the form strongmen use for circus dumbbell swings. Snatches are easier with dumbbells than kettlebells.

    I bought some since the beginning of they year. Maybe it's just the novelty but I find them to be enjoyable to work with, in opposition to normal weights, which is what actually counts for me the most.

    honestly id rather use a kettle than a dumbell for strength. and if you wanna look good you should get strong, in the aesthetic lifts. building muscle the kettle would be better for a curl for example. the weight is draped downward. the physics are totally different the center of balance and gravity is below the grip of the hand. a dumbell the weight is balanced along the transverse plane, so the roation muscles of the forearm have to tighten and remain still, curling with cumbells is gonna create this one dimesional arm, bodybuilder or t rex arm syndrome, unlike op pic. this guy has FULL arms, more natural looking, they look like they do work, heavy work, not jsut some gay isolation curl grow my arms bro homosexual gymbro shit. kettlebell > dumbell

      >pain to overload
      what I mean by this is that you cant overload - you just have to add more reps which in turn the entire process into a cardio torture session - dogshit for bodybuilders

        You're telling me someone who could do a 40kg kettlebell press wouldn't be jacked?

          he would, so would a man doing handstand pushups
          there are easier ways to get jacked
          swinging kettlebells brings you out of being moronic in your own body, so theyre good for conditioning, coordination etc.

          Also there is BeastTamer challenge in kettlebell world - OHP, single leg squat and pull up with 48 kg kettlebell. The guy who trained majority of beasttamers said he trained them with regulat strength training with barbells. Again, if you see big stong dude with kettlebells - he become big and strong not with kettlebells

    You can get plenty far with kettlebells and bodyweight exercises. Just do a simple routine, and most importantly, get off this fricking board. Seriously, this is a place you come once in a while for a throwaway post (like I'm doing now). Do not linger here, do not take any advice apart from what I just said (and similar advice from other anons).
