Ask GiryaGirl: I Only Have One or Two Kettlebells, What Else Can I Do? What is Your Skincare Routine?
Q: I only have one, it's the one I started with so it's a little light for most of the things I've been practicing... what do I do until I can order more later this month?
A: Last week's RKC blog from Josh Henkin brought up some ideas that are really great if you have or haven't already heard them. They're extremely valuable for instructors, enthusiasts, and especially people who like to work out at home or when they just have access to one or two . As we all know, a good quality like the ones from will last a lifetime, but they are not cheap. Personally, I think it's a great idea to just get one good for a while until you're ready to step up--instead of getting a crummy cheap that chews up your hands. Josh's article has all kinds of great ideas for when you're working with limited resources... or even if you have nearly pairs of every size as I do, for those times when you just want to take one to the park, the beach, the lake, wherever and get a complete workout with just one .
Some highlights from his post with some additional commentary:

With the threat of nasty weather once again, we opted to have class at the cool East Coast Martial Arts Supply dojo. This was a simple but interesting workout which I've adapted for online listing (removed a new ab drill that I need to make an explanatory video for before listing it here - or need to discover what in the world it might actually be called?!)
We started with a Primal Move warm up then started right in with a mini version of the so called "sissy challenge". Everyone chose a moderateand began with:
- 15 swings, 1 burpee
- 14 swings, 2 burpees
- 13 swings, 3 burpees
- follow the pattern all the way to
- 1 swing, 15 burpees
Here are a bunch of funworkouts - most of which are admittedly rather advanced - they can be scaled down if necessary, feel free to ask questions. Any excuse to talk more about exercise is a good one :)
