So the only thing I have to use while working out is a 10 lb dumbell. I want to get one of those exercise balls and another dumbell eventually but what are some other things I should look into getting?
All I have around here is a Walmart with exercise equipment, I don't use a gym and I don't have alot to spend. I have been feeling like I need more than just one dumbell though. It's almost like it isn't doung much anymore.
Any help would be great (: Still feel so new to all this haha

(Not sure where to put this so I'm just going to add it to a random forum)

Wouldn't I have to hang them from something? And what exactly do they do?

I used to hang them from a pull up bar... They're pretty versatile actually: hangs, pull ups, dips, push ups, dips, flyers, planks, hanging knee raises, even... handstands (total hardcore beyond my imagination...)

There's soooooo much you can do with just one kettlebell!  Plus, kettlebell workouts burn cals and tone muscle at the same time...can't go wrong :-)

Just be careful swinging it around if you workout at home. Last year I broke a lamp, lol.

Our house is pretty much kid proof :P I will check that out though! I was actually looking at them a while back but didn't have money. What weight would be good to start?
17 Aug
I would start with 15lb

Okay. I'll check them out next time I'm in town

hmm in my home gym i have a stability ball which i love...brings ab workouts to a whole other level....i have a few free weights, yoga mat, ab roller, a stepy thingy for areobics, kettle bells...thats pretty much it.

just a little tip, i got most of my workout things from garage sales! i always have one or two a week going on and a lot of people sell workout things....if your town is big on garage sales check some of them out. i got a weight set of like 5 weights for 15 bucks......and the areobic stepper thing was free.....just a suggestion!

I'll be looking for garage sales but I don't think we have many of those going on around here.
