Kettlebell Workout

Good Morning, Plummies! Working out has always been a large part of my life, yet lately, I've been so lazy (Probably due to my long work days). My boyfriend introduced me to the Kettle Bell Swing. It is a great routine for me because it is quick and effective. This simple workout basically targets all the major muscle groups of the body in no time at all. 
You can buy a 25 or 35 lbs kettlebell for about $60-$75, or you can make one yourself if you have some extra supplies at home. Above, I used a homemade kettlebell by fastening 2, 10lbs plates to a couple pipes. The handle was created with good old fashion duct tape. Gotta be thrifty, ya know! ;)
Last week, I was at the gym and used a 35lbs bell and did 1 set of 75 swing reps. Let me tell ya, I have never been more sore in my life! Really! You ideally want to do this workout only 2 times per week <---sweet deal, huh?!
Check out the video below to learn more.
