I'm learning about Kettlebells. I don't do the Russian variety... because I'm a wimp... light weight. This guy shows 17 different exercises using kettlebells - I can't wait to try a few. I do the "swing" - both hands on and in between my legs. I actually use a dumbbell... because I don't own any kettlebells as of yet.
Today I did 100 swings. I read somewhere that doing swings burns 20 calories per minute. Thus - doing 20 minutes of swings... LOTS of calories. Ü (400... in case you were reaching for your calculator).
