    Default KB Newbie!

    Hey all,

    I am new to the KB workout. I have currently been using Stew Smith's "12 Weeks to BUD/S" to get in shape. I like it a lot, but I need something new and fresh to help with my workout boredom.

    I want to get into KB's, I was wondering what weight KB I should purchase. I am 5'10" 235lb (not all muscle) and pretty darn strong.

    Any help or extra advice on getting started would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    Nathaniel

    Default Welcome to The Party comrade! IMHO - Start with a one pood...

    ...I too am a newbie and have gotten great advice here. Form is essential and the lighter Kb will allow you to focus on form first. You will not "out grow" the 1 pood KB so much as reach a point when you will want to add the challenge and training of adding (a) heavier KB('s), as well as doing 2 KB exercises, to your workout which will include the one pood. Enjoy!

    I agree with rshadoe start with the 1 pood. It will probably get light pretty fast but it will still be good for more advanced moves and strength/endurance. I've been working with the 1.5 and 2 pood and I thought I outgrew the 1 pood until I used it as a "finisher" recently and I couldn't complete a 100 snatch countdown (it finished me). If you like to workout hard you'll probably love KB's and want more than one. Good luck training.

    Default Welcome to the Party Com. Nathaniel.....

    The 1 pood is a great way to start. It is heavy enough to give you a good work out and light enough to concentrate on form for each exercises. If you're like a lot of the guys you'll start looking for the 1.5 pood in a month or two .... but I don't think you'll ever "outgrow" the 1 pood. As Com. Divemaster indicated there are still a lot things you can do with it.

    Order one and begin the pain.

    Enjoy

    Perfect.....thanks for the help.

    One more thing! Are the reloadable KB simulators as good as the one and only KB?
