march goal: master the kettlebell

i followed valet’s advice and bought a kettlebell.  the 35 pounder (16 kg) was the recommended entry level kettlebell for an out of shape dude.  i took group kettlebell classes 2 years ago, but dropped out because the “instructor” spent most of the time talking to his buddy about karate and survivor.  spring is a better time to begin my new years resolution to drop a few pounds for two reasons: 1) those that have quit their get in shape resolutions are no longer at the gym, and 2) you can exercise outside again.  my goal is to lose 10 lbs this month.  it’s tough to be a #menswear blogger with a gut.  i’m hoping this kettlebell will be a nice kick-starter to my workout program.  i’ll keep you posted on the progress.
