Toning Bar & Kettlebells Workout Tips

by Jeri

I'm ready to incorporate kettlebells & a toning bar into my workout program but I'm unsure at how many lbs I should start with. I consider myself in good shape & I'm currently lifting 10-lb each dumbbells 3x/week.

I'm tempted to buy (2) 10-lb kettlebells, (1) 15-lb kettlebell, & either a 12 or 15-lb toning bar. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.

what size kettlebells and toning bar
by: Monica

Hey Jeri

In the video below KB expert Anthony D. explains what size kettlebells you need for kettlebell workouts. I'm not kb certified but I do use the ones at the studio from time to time for rows, swings, and leg exercises.

If you can press or curl 10lb weights you should probably start with the 8 kilo kb. You can upgrade to the 12 kilo once you get more skilled with it.

I highly recommend you take a class, hire a kb trainer for at least a couple of sessions or get a good dvd or book to learn proper form. Kettlebell workouts are fun and challenging but you need to learn good technique from the start to avoid serious injuries.

Try Kettlebells For Dummies . I have this book and it offers excellent instruction and great workouts to get you started.

If you're looking to add a second piece of equipment then a suspension trainer would be a much better choice than a toning bar. A suspension trainer provides more exercise options and really boosts function as well as fatloss. Check out the suspension trainer guide for more info, videos, and workouts.
