I'm looking for some advice. I've really been wanting to mix things up a little. I've really wanted to try kettlebells, and I really enjoy dumbbells. So, I thought I would try to construct a routine to try for 2 or 3 months. I was thinking of something like this:
Sunday - Dumbbell lower (heavier)
Monday - Kettlebell upper
Tuesday - Jogging
Wednesday - Dumbbell upper (heavier)
Thursday - Kettlebell lower
Friday - Off
Saturday - Light jog
However, I'm having a really hard time figuring out what a good upper and lower routine would be for kettlebells. I have literally read dozens of links but I still don't know how to put something together.
I'm moderately fit and have worked out most of my life. I have one 35lbs bell, and one 45lbs bell.
Would someone mind pointing me in the right direction?
EDIT: I guess a goal would help. I need to cut some fat and put on muscle. I realize that's probably so generic its laughable, but it does fit the bill!

Here's another link you can read - Boris's SquartRx blog. He's a big kettlebell enthusiast - and he's often blogged about routines he does when he's visiting his family abroad or when he's tight on time.skipjones wrote:Would someone mind pointing me in the right direction?
Otherwise, I'd just pick a time, and a weight, and go to town on one exercise. Either Snatches or Clean and Press for upper day, and swings for lower day. Do as many as you can easily get done in 10 minutes, say, with whatever rest you need, and work up. Start with 35 for snatches and 45 for two-handed swings. That's enough to get started, and it's both cadiovascular exercise and a good volume of lifting.
