    Kettlebells

    Does anyone in here do kettlebell workouts? I've been doing them for a while and am stuck in the same routine. If you have any good exercises or routines, please share.

    What would be the benefits of switching to barbells? I really like using kettlebells and I feel like it they would be better for dynamic movement exercises. I realize it's not a bodybuilder type routine, but it gets me everytime and is great for what I need it for.

    Right now I'm using either 30-40 lb kettlebells and usually doing three sets. Here is my routine:
    1. One-arm KB swings (20 each arm)
    2. Contra lateral single legged deadlift (10 each leg)
    3. Crushing halo (20 each direction)
    4. Curls (10)
    5. Med ball pushups (20)
    6. Ab V ups (35)
    7. Mountain climbers (35)
    8. Two-arm KB clean/lifts (10)
    9. Kb squats (15)
    10. Pullups (10)

    The ceiling in the room at the gym where I do it is fairly low so it's hard to do exercises like snatches, etc. I've been doing this maybe twice a week, mixed in with running, light lifting, muay thai, bjj, and some other light "light" mma training.

    I found out about kettlebells only a few months ago and this has been my only routine. I'd love to hear some recommendations or tips about how to change it up a little. Any input is appreciated.

    Is there anyway that you can move into a room or area in the gym with higher ceilings?

    -Snatches
    -Military Press
    -Windmills
    -Turkish Getups
    -Thrusters

    All great exercises that you need to be able to hold the bells over your head for.

    hughest knows way more about kettlebells than me. but i will vouch for him that they are great to workout with. my boss at my gym is certified in crossfit so he's got all that fun stuff. the only thing i really use though is the ropes to climb and the tire to flip.

    It would be possible to move in to a different area with higher ceilings if needed.

    I agree. I would much rather move weight but different strokes for different folks
