Lately Connor has been doing a lot of farmers walks with the 8 kg and 12 kg KB's he has tried doing some swings with a 8# DB. It's great. I'll post the pics up later today.

I absolutely love this thread.

Here's my 11 year old playing with her 8kg AKC "Pinky" and doing some split snatches and real poor clean and jerks.

On the second video, that's my little body double wandering around flinging kettlebells.

All the best,
Arden

Really incredible Arden. Looks like everyone is having a great time with the KB's. I am going to need to get some of those AKC bells to get the kids accustomed to the size.

My girls really like the pink bell. My wife hasn't gotten to play with it yet. The 12kg was a bit too heavy for her.

I got introduced to bell work about two years ago and have fallen in love with it because it doesn't require a whole bunch of "crap" to perform. The kids like them because most of the exercises are fairly easy to learn. My girls picked up the snatch and the LCCJ with a bell very easily. Whereas teaching them to barbell pull properly or barbell squat properly has been a horrendous struggle. If that makes any sense?

Something about the bell work is much easier to teach to my daughters. It looks more natural on them.

All the best,
Arden

Here here! And that little girl, lifting all that heavy stuff, won't be able to have babies. Like when I was working towards a bodyweight bench press and got pregnant, clearly all that exercise wasn't good for me. And when that little girl grows up and she doesn't have osteoporosis or less muscle mass than she should- blame it on that dangerous heavy lifting she did as a child.

You bad parent you.

(Do those come in teething ring size?)

That pink bell probably was Arden's teething ring.

LOL.

Strangely I've heard comparable having to do with severed pieces of wood. I, and my daughters, get it honest.

All the best,
Arden

LOL. It's kinda cool that they're into doing this stuff with me and wi Fit at the mother's. My eldest was telling me she was doing drop snatches/squats/OHS/split jerks/etc with a broom stick at her mother's and had to stop because she kept knocking stuff off the counters. As I'm told, she cleans the kitchen then does drill work on the hard tiled floor because it has the most "stable" surface in their home.

I'm blessed.

All the best,
Arden
