It’s an exercise tool called a kettlebell. My workout buddy. It’s essentially a cannon ball with a thick metal handle on top that you swing and press and use in a variety of moves that challenge you (and torture you- maybe that medieval thing wasn’t so far off!).
For the last 11 months I’ve been throwing these bad boys around, and it has absolutely changed my body. Never before have I felt so… capable. That may be an odd word to use, but using the kettlebell has required me to push myself beyond my comfortable limit almost daily. Looking at this 44 lb. ball of metal, my mind never thinks, ‘You can easily pick that up and swing it around!’ Yet that’s exactly what I do every morning.
I have the callouses to prove it.
