A few weeks back my wife, two daughters, and I loaded up into the Mommy Mobile and took a ride out to the Jersey Shore. We stayed for a week, spending some time on the beach and going for long walks on the boardwalk. It was a nice time – despite me not being a beach person.
Before we left I came up with a grand plan to workout each morning while everyone slept in. A good friend of mine, Jerry Cruz, gave me a link to a Ketlebell Workout that he has been doing. I made a trip over to the local Walmart with the intention of picking up a 30 pound kettlebell. Unfortunately, what was in stock struck me as grossly overpriced and I left the store empty handed.
After we returned from vacation I was determined to get at least one kettlebell for my wife to use. She wants to try some strength exercises and isn’t quite ready for a gym membership. I’ve spent a fair bit of time on Craigslist waiting for something to become available and struck out. Everything was either too far away to be practical or priced too high.
On a whim I headed over to the Walmart website and looked up CAP brand Kettlebells. From past experience I knew they run about $1.00 per pound (this is what I was looking for before I went on vacation) and I thought I’d just order what I needed.
To my surprise, CAP Kettlebells were on Rollback. I placed an order for a 10lb, 15lb, 20lb, and 30lb Kettlebell. With economy shipping I spent just under $60 for my order. Delivery took about a week but my shipment arrived today.
I handled them a bit this morning and they will serve me just fine. The handles are a touch small but that isn’t much to complain about considering the price. I think they’ll make for a great addition to my basement workout space.
Heavier weight is available and I’d love to order a 50lb kettlebell but I don’t have the spare cash at the moment. Hopefully they stay on rollback for a while and I can pick up more at a later date.
One of the real pleasures in life is the ability to hop on my motorcycle and ride. Often I'm not quite sure where I'm going, but I almost always wear a backpack. Neither my 2022 Yamaha MT-09 SP nor...

One of my favorite things about the WaltInPA Discord Server is that we meet for Motorcycle Group Rides several times throughout the riding season. Sometimes these rides are short spur-of-the-moment...
