Kettlebell “MedBell” delivery…

Posted: August 9, 2012 in Kettlebell, kettlebellhell, medbell

When PerformBetter had a free shipping deal, I took advantage of that and was very excited to come home to a special delivery!  What may appear to be just a cardboard box on the front porch was my much-awaited MedBell, which would allow me to add in a whole new series of fun exercises.

The MedBell is a cross between a medicine ball and a kettlebell.  Here’s what I got:

I opted for the 25-pound version, because for me this is still a challenging weight.  It’s great for swings, releases and flips… but not too heavy for presses and about perfect for a series of squats.

It’s rubberized, so it’s easier to catch when you throw it in the air.  Don’t get me wrong, it will still hurt if it hits your face, but I’ve found that grabbing on to a rubber ball is a little less slippery than the regular kettlebells.  Especially if you’re swinging them outside on the lawn… my grass is usually a bit damp here in Seattle (surprised right?) and when the regular kettlebells get wet, they are very slippery.

Stay tuned for some video with the new medbell, as well as some new routines.

Peace,

Kate
