Kettlebells & Lunges

collagevideo.com

So today I decided not to run. The ankle is bothering me some and besides I wanted to dig into some exercise DVDs I have. I have SO many exercise videos. I have everything from Richard Simmons (yep, I cannot tell a lie I love his very first and second videos they were the first ones I ever had), Gin Miller, Lesley Sansone, Karen Voigt…so many. I got many of them from collagevideo.com. I like that site because you can see a clip before you buy and you can also return within 30 days. 

So today I decided to use the kettle bell I purchased some time ago but never used. It came with a free Gin Miller kettlebell workout. That was cool because you can buy the workout alone but I got it for free
