Ode to the Kettlebell

O Kettlebell, 10 pound kettlebell,
Didn't know you were going to give me hell.

"Just swing and lift,'" the instructor said
As I lifted the kettlebell over my head.

"It will work your core, and your lower body too,"
She left out that climbing stairs would be hard to do.

My quads are asking "Why?!" and screaming,
Feels like a nightmare, but I'm certainly not dreaming.

It's almost like post-marathon ache,
But with no medal or glory - this is hard to take.

Despite the soreness from the weight,
I've got a feeling I'll be seeing the kettlebell for another date.

  1. I'm bringing my kettlebells to CTY! An 18#, 26# and 35#. You are welcome to join me! AND, there is the unmitigated joy of the TRX to share.
