Other Favorites

For most men, I recommend starting with a single 35lb.or 44 lb. kettlebell, or you could go with the 35 lb. and 53 lb. kettlebells if you want more than one. For most women, it's the 26 lb. kettlebell to start, although I've met plenty who started with the 35-pounder. You can check out Dragon Door kettlebells by clicking the link below.

If your primary goal is to improve your strength, click on this icon and order a copy of Pavel's book, Power to the People. I feel that this book will do the most for you in terms of dispeling the appalling array of ridiculous strength training myths that seem to pervade the typical weightroom. I had been lifting weights for 13 years when I first read this book, and I have to tell you that I was both glad to have this information and angry at all the time I had wasted on ineffective training methods.

It's a common misperception that muscular flexibility and joint mobility are one and the same thing. They are distinctly different, and whereas the techniques for improving flexibility can be quite complicated and difficult to implement, putting your joints through their full potential ranges of motion is quite simple and delivers a ton of benefits. Exercising your joints feels great, increases your energy level, relaxes your mind, reduces stress, and can prevent or even reduce degenerative conditions such as arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome in your back, neck, hips, shoulders, and wrists. Of all Pavel's books, this is the easiest one to learn from -- just glance at the pictures, read a few paragraphs, and you'll have it down. I do a 10-minute routine of joint exercises every morning myself, and I recommend that you do, too. I learn best from reading the book, but you may prefer the video/DVD. These exercises are ideal for everyone regardless of age, athletic background, and current physical condition.
