Okay, I did a couple of searchs but they came up blank so.... Due to a nasty shoulder injury I havent been able to lift properly for a year, I havent been able to roll or spar either for that matter. But, my shoulder is healing thankfully and I am able to start some light free weights movements again. However, due to a change of apartments since last year I dont really have the space to set up my weights bench to my liking. Instead of cluttering up what little space I have ( and it is a very small spare bedroom) with weights and a bench would there be any merit in buying some kettlebells? I cant really afford the time or money to become a gym member either. Ive used these for short periods in stores, and Ive read hype about them for years but are they any good? Are they a realistic substitute for dumbell/barbells? Im not really looking for a miracle cure or substitute for hard work, I just want to re-build and maintain an average ( for a bjj player) level of strength. Does anyone have any experience with them? Has anyone found they have replaced more "traditional" weights? Thanks in advance for any replies.
