how does a dumbell equate to doing kettlebell routines?

Guys or girls. Im strong. I can tell you that Kettle bells arent plates you kniow. If you use them in the correct manner with high reps, they are fine for anyone. I have 7.5kg that i got from our favourite supermarket for 9.99. I find I can work my Latts very well. I agree that anythink below a 5kg is pretty pointless for a man. the 7.5 is probably not heavy enuff for me. As i do sets of 24 reps, and keep repeating to failure. As i said in the post i paid 9.99 for half price kettle bell. Im only giving heads up, and I do realise you can get heavier, but at what cost?
As for person who posted the vinyl weights, and why did youpost them? They are no comparisson, they aint even same thing. You must have forgot to put on your specs, Compare somethink similar, or not at all mate.

How silly.
Doesn't it depend on the exercise? The person? The form? The cadence?

Would like to see you do some proper form lateral raises (5 seconds up, 5 seconds down) with 12kg.
BTW - Not voting, don't want any kettlebells, don't fit into my routine.

Never used them, however I believe they build the core more. Because of the swinging motion, you use the stabilizing muscles more. Wouldn't recomend one over the other. Use both if you have them.


Ignore this. Just re-read the post properly. Doh! X)

The first link you have is for a 10 POUND kettle bell which is less weight than a 7.5KG one!

And as for the second link, if anyone thinks that these kettlebells are crap don't even go near vinyl weights!

You dumb ass, its in lbs not kg on there. Which is 10lbs = 4.5kg

You are incorrect.

I started with 5kg doing kettleworx and my upper body strength was terrible, slowly getting better and I can recommenced the kettleworx 6 week programme. I've lost 2 inches off each of my arms, 3 off my hips and 1 inch from my bust. Working next with the 7.5kg.

No way would anyone just starting off with a kettlebell programme use a 12kg.

I bought one these and it performs poorly as both a kettle and a bell. It doesn't hold water and it remains silent no matter how hard i shake it.

Oh and voted hot. Great price for metal bells.

really? so what weight did you start on?

Great price. I don't think i would recommend these weights for guys, however for women they're great. I started on a 16kg kb (very overweight male) and it was hard at the start, but you soon get used to it. I've lost 45Ibs by dieting and using a 16kg kb so far Started using a 24kg as well for a couple of exercises to add variation and i can really feel it!

Ideal as door stops when you get bored lifting them.

exactly,16 is the starting weight
as for the guy using a 7.5
have you even tried a decent weight? 7.5 would just be poinrless,with little resistance

A women should start with an 8kg kb, if you need a lighter one, it means your not using correct technique - the answe lies with proper instruction, not a lighter kb. A man should start with a 16kg kb. When swinging a kb, you use the very powerful posterior chain muscles - hamstrings, glutes etc.

This is a great article describing how to swing:

If you need a DVD, buy this, its expensive but superb:

If you own a kb, and want a 4 week beginner routine, you can't do better than this:

Well spotted - nearly fell for it

pointless weight sizes, unless you want to exercise your wrist, in which case there are more fun ways to develop muscle there

Minimum a bloke should aim for is 12kg to start doing swings and moving onto 16kg once you have the technique

I use a 16kg myself and I can do pretty much every excercise I need with that. I will move onto a 20kg eventually...

Totally disagree, it all depends on what you are trying to achieve. … Totally disagree, it all depends on what you are trying to achieve. Longer and more regular workouts can achieve great strength and fitness even with relative light kettlebells.

You're also a moron. "5 seconds up 5 seconds down" is just retarded and completely pointless. Anyone that worries about counting how long a rep takes on the way up or down doesn't know anything.

For 99% of exercises the best method is to lift as fast as possible on the way up and as fast as possible on the way down (as long as the weight is controlled properly and you're not jerking / using momentum).

For the record I don't see the point in kettle bells. Go use a barbell or dumbbell they provide everything you could ever need in weight lifting.

Surely if you can do 24 reps then the weight is too light?

If you want to remain skimpy like the OP then go fart around with kettle bells.

P.S. you're also retarded. You're strong? Suuuuuuure. Based on what you just said I can tell you're a lowly gym rat.

Deadlift 1RPM w/ video or I'm right. Thought not. Keep swinging the kettle bells and believe in yourself. At least someone does. (_;)

kettlebells are brilliant.

good for beginners whats been posted, im after 10kg.

Sorry but you are actually incorrect. The negative phase of the rep recruits more muscle fibres by keeping the muscle under constant strain. The positive or up phase should be slow and controlled, squeezing the muscle at the final part of the rep. Doing both of these will increase muscle mass, doing 10 reps in 6 seconds will (almost) create muscle definition however this is pointless if you have a layer of fat surrounding a muscle

I agree with you that it must be under control through

How rude and insulting you are with your dreadful name calling, insults and appalling advice.

I Have a full set of weights Dumbbells/Barbells etc and they are great for building muscle. ( By the way you should take 1 second to lift and two seconds to lower for best effect).
But for a combination of fat burning, core strength and fast workouts, Kettle bells are hard to beat. Just try a few Turkish getups and you will see what a challenge they can be. By the way, 2x16kg give far more variety than several different size weights, in my opinion. Great article in the last Mens Fitness Magazine.

I bought a 16KG kettle bell a while ago and in lifting it from the car to the house managed to do my back in! A few weeks later I gave it a few swings and managed to do my back in...again! It remained on the floor after that!

I've no doubt my starting fitness and technique caused 99% of the problem but I'd agree with others that 16KG is a hell of a weight to start on!

Another gym rat. Keep reading your worthless fitness magazines and believe everything they tell you. Keep swinging those kettle bells for another 5 years and come crawling back when you've made little or no progress. (_;)

Sorry bro but go watch a strongman train - I bet you can't find a vid of them worrying about how long it takes them to lift the rep. Volume is the key if your quest is mass.

For example I can deadlift 200kg for 5 reps in a fast, powerful way. Or I could probably deadlift the same amount of reps for ~160kg doing them slowly. I will add way more mass lifting the heavier weight.

However, I agree that squeezing at the top does have it's uses on certain exercises.

Wrong. I train at a gym using an instructor devised program and 8KG is doing me fine for now, I'm a bloke. It depends how you use the kettle bells. Kettlebells are an excellent way to train. You can build core strength and or build muscle, the key to training is to eat properly, rest well and keep tricking your body, so every month or so modify your routine.
