      They're the single most versatile piece of equipment and a pair of 24kgs are actually enough to achieve a very tight and toned body. People really overestimates how many equipment you need for a healthy body and believes you need an entire powertard gym to even begin lifting.

      >Not great for hypertrophy.
      Strongly, strongly disagree. Hypertrophy is about low weight high volume, Kettlebells fits that bill perfectly. Don't mistake powerfat overloading strength routine with actual hypertrophy ones.
      Otherwise I agree with the rest, Kettlebells aren't normally a strength tool. But I doubt a normal guy will ever need to carry more than 32kg in each hand anyway, so this point is moot.

        Are you Joe Daniels? Kidding aside, you're right, if it's used for grind lifts and isolations like a dumbbell (although you'll get much less ROM on lunges and BSS). Swings and snatches and cleans for volume don't really hypertrophy you, those were the movements I was thinking of when I said "not great." With barbells you can load a clean or power clean enough that it will grow your glutes.

          I feel like your pressing power will probably stagnate a lot with only 40kg to work with. Do you add bands? Also, even if you're doing lunges with 2 x 40kg kettlebells you're going to eventually need more resistance for your legs.

            You know that your scapula naturally elevates and rotates upwards to make space for the humerus as you press upward (courtesy of serratus anterior, upper and lower traps), right? Not my fault that those muscles are pathetically weak in your case, but for everybody else, vertical pressing causes no impingement because of healthy scapular movement. High rep OHP is especially great for the shoulders since you get a ton of blood flow to all those muscles around the scapula as well as drilling good scapular movement that helps prevent impingement.

            Also this is why anyone with a big OHP has big upper traps and serratus; those muscles are absolutely essential, delts and tris aren't the only things being worked here

            You're mostly right. If you have a very hooked acromion, you still get a better opening of the AC joint with your arms in the scapular plane, as one can with dumbbells and as one is actively cued to do with kettlebells due to the offset weight.

              my acromion is hooked as frick and it causes impingment on most shoulder exercises, what the frick can I do to get around it? I've been skipping shoulders at the gym to avoid injuries but i am scared it might lead to imbalances

              i do weighted jumprope for cardio 3 days and lift 2 days push/pull, the goal is to ottermode. i have felt a nice change with the weighted jumprope handles, they do work my lateral delts quite a bit since I usually jump rope for 30 mins

                anterior delt and under clavicle part of chest is done easily with ucv standing db raise - tilt torso to the side worked so that anterior delt doesn't die before upper chest

                rear delt is worked easily when ur torso is horizontal (bend, chest supported whatever, i like it unilateral and support myself with other hand) - think those goofy tricep extensions without extending triceps, trike tendon should entirely bear the load, no weight on bicep tendon, u can rest db on forearm, like so (8th minute):

                side delt - still debating the issue, i will screw another db (because now i just have one i'm doing everything with lol) and maybe try it today
                here:

                supposedly pronation of hand, elbow first in scapular plane bent 60 degs is impingement free and actually works the mythical side delts, i will see and evaluate, if they can get any bigger though that would be fricking risiculous 😀

                there is no reason to move with weight through impingement whatsoever

                Yeah because it's a rotational movement, the centrifugal force pulls your joint open and that will help with a hooked acrimion. It also helps train throwing patterns and fires side chains (like posterior/anterior chains, you've got one for each side) which are pretty sorely neglected
                It also makes you feel like the iron sheik and who doesn't want to feel like sheiky baby

                There is a big guy on Instagram who regularly presses 80kg kettlebells, but 40kg sing arm overhead press is doable for maybe 1 or 2 x reps for experienced lifters. I don't know how much someone would need to go beyond that. If they can do 10 x reps with 40kg they're probably MASSIVE.

                I have a 24kg kettlebell I can do 10 x + reps with but I usually just use a resistance band if I want to press a little heavier. Buying a bigger kettlebell is expensive.

                And yea, for a bigger kettlebell; save for an adjustable - it'll pair with your 24 and then you can load it up to 32 by 1kg increments. They're not cheap, but it's not like you'd ever have to replace it. If you consider how much even a 24kg, 28kg and 32kg would cost individually, it quickly starts to make sense.

              You just don't get it, do you? Impingement doesn't fricking occur if you have healthy scapular movement, it only occurs if your serratus anterior and upper/lower traps are extremely weak, or if you have dysfunctional movement patterns for some reason (can be fixed by drilling scap elevation+upward rotation). If you want to see what impingement actually feels like, stick your hand on your shoulder and don't let any motion occur at the scapula at all, then try to raise your hand over your head. Congratulations, you just impinged your shoulder, which also disallows you from getting into an overhead position since the scapula can't move. Take your hand off and now your shoulder is no longer impinged and you can reach an overhead position easily.
              >is on shitloads of roids - they've got everything big
              Where in my post did I mention roids? There were individuals with huge OHPs prior to roids existing, so this argument is invalid.

                I mean yeah technically you can't lock out your elbows correctly with retracted scapula, but you can just protract to neutral and suddenly you can. Or you can just leave a slight bend in your elbows; i.e, don't lock out. Not like that end of the ROM matters much anyway; no stretch, super easy, it's not that important. Stretch matters more

                When your humerus reaches a certain angle your scapula elevates and rotates upward (again, because of serratus anterior and upper/lower traps) to complete the motion and prevent impingement. I don't know why you keep insisting that impingement occurs because it just doesn't. If impingement did occur, you would feel the sensation of impingement, and I can tell you right now that that shit doesn't occur on vertical presses with good technique, and I know this because when working on my middle splits, I get hip impingement if my body isn't in the exact right position (anterior pelvic tilt to make space etc), and I can replicate that sensation in the shoulder joint via the aforementioned test, but vertical pressing with or without weight does not reproduce that sensation because there is no impingement occurring in that motion.
                >pin presses, exactly same shit, only without bones grinding ur shit
                Pin presses are only useful if you're trying to increase your OHP. Yes, technically the very top of an OHP is "tricep dominant", but it's shit for growing triceps because there's no stretch. Just do a tricep exercise at that point lol

    They excel in building a SOLID strength and strength endurance base and if you used nothing but kettlebells your whole life you would undoubtedly be extremely fit and not too bad looking either. But they're limited in how much leg strength you can build, so at some point you'll have to supplement with barbells if you want to take it further into actual powerlifting, bodybuildinig, strongman or whatever. But most training programs aknoledge that and also include suggestions on how to proceed (simple and sinister being one of them). I think it's important to always reflect on how effective whaever you're doing is and when it's time to move on, just fall into tribalistic thinking and fetishizing excersice equipment

    If I ever got into KB i would do exclusively things like, snatches, TGUs, and clean and press
    I never understood the swing. Just snatch it bro wtf

      I do snatches but I've been doing the swing too and it does hit my hamstrings pretty well and when I am going to do Romanian deadlifts I start with kettlebell swings to warm up.

      I sort of equate swings vs snatches to running a 5k vs hill-sprints; sometimes it's nice to put on a podcast and get the heart-rate humming nicely for half an hour or so, and sometimes it's good to have a race between puking your guts up or tearing something.

          What does this mean? The main injury I hear from kettlebells are shoulder. Why would your knees be affected by a few kettlebell swings.

            You don't flex the knees very much on KB swings. Most of it is hip movement.

            u can do this, u can also lie down make an brisge between legs and shoulders/armsand, while u're at it u can pull heels towards head (fires up lower hamstrings, like this meme shit knees over toes guys sell but real, free of charge) just hold or pulsate or whatever, hams are stretched and u r really pulling, just hold 4 40 secs and u've got hams done, awsome

            why the frick would u use heavy purse for that? u can do exact same shit with dumbell only u will get less of a swing, nobody does that though

            there is nothing innately useful in this movement

            and ultimately it's just yet another anterior delt movement, right through impingement, with even moerer weight for no fricking reason whatsoever
            > but hip
            u r not telling me u're gonna get winded before u'r delt dies frontraising heavy purse? lose weight u obese frick

              Kettlebell swings don't work your arm anon, I don't know what you're talking about. They wouldn't cause any burn in your arms aside from your grip if you have a weak grip.

                so arms past initial hip jolt (that lasts 1/8th of a second and then there's half a minute rest until another jolt propels weight, so arms do nothing but hold weight?
                why? why move through impingementwith big weight? why? wtf bot?

                The kettlebell swing is for the posterior chain and doesn't work the arms at all aside from your grip.

                The hand just holds onto the weight and otherwise dangles like a pendulum. Idk what you mean by 'wait 30 seconds' because there are no pauses in swings except for rests.
                >you lean forward
                >you let the weight swing between your legs
                >you hinge upward at the waist
                >the weight's momentum should bring it up to about eye level as you hinge up
                >let the weight swing down, hinge at the waist as it falls
                >start the loop over again
                You actively do not lift the weight with your arm or shoulders. The only thing you should be doing in your shoulders is keeping your shoulder blades back so your back is straight.

                It isn't an arm exercise, it's a core exercise + cardio.

                well then what is stopping the weight from hitting back of your head in the bottom of this movement? is it maybe shoulder in impingment position? is it wise? why would u do that?

                why move through unmovable movement, u can not lock out bench with proper form without impingement
                >scapulae moves
                >humeral rhythm
                occurs once humerus reaches certain angle - that's why once u get it up in ohp u can muscle it up, i say do only muscling it up part if u're moronic enough that u can't think of anything else to do

                pin presses, exactly same shit, only without bones grinding ur shit

                First of all, you should work on your english. I barely understand what you're saying.

                >well then what is stopping the weight from hitting back of your head in the bottom of this movement?
                Kettlebell is between your legs and pulling your arms back, it's nowhere near the head. At the top position it's pulling your arms forward, again, no movement towards the head.
                Do you even know how "Kettlebell swing" looks like?
                You don't lift your arms more than a parallel to the ground.
                Impingement can occur when you lift your arms above shoulder height. It doesn't happen during swings.

    I thought kettlebells were strictly for cardio exercises. Since when did these turn into something being used in strength routines?

    Most cost effective way to efficiently train a base in cardio, strength and endurance.
    A fantastic method of entry for new lifters as at about 1$/lbs you can get a 15, 35, and 50 for the cost of many gyms’ first month+ signup fee.
    Only need a space a couple feet bigger than arms length to do 95% of the exercises, making it a great appeal for apartment rentoids.
    The constantly shifting center of gravity compared to dumbbells or barbells means more functional strength gains.
    The multiple grip variations available open up a plethora of training options for different athletes and those that have developed a strong muscle mind connection.
    Just 30 minutes a day will literally change you.

    If your goal is longevity in your husk of a body, kettlebells are by far what I recommend. I could keep going but it’s almost kettlebell time haha

        As someone who bought many many pairs of bells, find a good adjustable. Kettlebell Kings , Bells of Steel and Titan all make a decent one that goes from 12kg-32kg. Get a pair of a decent adjustable and you'll be set for years

        You’re wrong and snobby. The Walmart and Amazon ones are completely fine and reflect my price range. They have served me very well for years. My rogue one is not different apart from the texture. If you have problems with grip you can put cheap wrist tape on it and problem solved.
        >inb4 weight isn’t exact
        It’s not free weights where you have to have near-equilibrium from both sides. You focus more on progressively overloading reps instead of weights so that little error in weight means zilch. Nada. Rei. Zee-Row.
        It’s also still a better economic choice than a gym membership so you’re just shouting into the void

    Swings and deadlifts with shrugs are pretty good addition if you can't go to a gym for various reasons if you also do some calisthenics on top. Loaded Walks make your strength go up as well if you use a racked posture. Those are the main exercises for great gains.

    One of the best pieces of equipment. Trains the entire body at once while combining cardio and strength.

    If you train every day with these, you will get slim and strong in no time.
