    Replacing a kettlebell

    So, I was thinking of using March to do Strenth Training - making it a "Muscle March" - but I currently don't have a Kettlebell. I heard that doing exercises with it could be great strength training, and some Programs require one, but I was wondering: can it be replaced by something else? For example, a dumbbell?

    It depends on the exercise that you are using it for somewhat. For instance in my experience bicep curls aren't too different. You might lose a bit if the dynamics in the strength of your hand on uneven pushups. It will be hard to replicate some movements though.

      Kettlebells have a particular shape and movement dynamics, in my opinion it doesn't make much sense to do a kettlebell program if you don't have a kettlebell but that's just my opinion.
      If you have dumbbells on hand maybe you should choose a program that uses those

        I'll keep that in mind. I wonder how much an adjustable kettlebell costs...?

          Adjustable kettlebells are typically very expensive and very scarce. By taking two kettlebells to start, one light and one heavy, you would spend less and have better kettlebells

            Fremen Is correct, plus kettlebells have the added bonus of improving grip strength a lot more than you would think, you can really tell a difference in your functional strength after using them, in the past I've used a 6kg one and a 12kg one nothing special but you can change the tempo to make them easier or harder.
