HA! That’s a delightfully wicked kettle bell. My sister was going to throw a 10lb kettle in the trash. She and her husband destroyed a golds gym treadmill because they could dissemble it to get out of the apartment. I asked for the Bell and she let me have it. It’s kind of nice. I might get some others. So for hand weights that are officially weights and not heavy tools for ripping up the field and brush:
1 10 lb kettle bell
2 2lb dumbbells
2 3lb dumbbells
4 5lb dumbbells (2 are for walking/running exercises)
2 10lb dumbbells
2 15lb dumbbells
2 20lb dumbbells
2 25lb dumbbells
1 30lb dumbbell
1 35lb dumbbell
1 40lb dumbbell
Only 2 25lb plates and plenty of 2.5, 5, and 10lb plates scattered about on equipment or weights I’ve created myself like a 30lb emulated sledge hammer, and out of old rusted bolt, 2 collars, and some plates I’ve made a couple 5lb hammers and a 10lb hammer. I made some wrist curl weights with center sleeve that rolls freely around the bar so while the sleeve is stationary the dumbbell and bar can spin or rotate freely without rolling the dumbbell onto my tiippy fingers.
I found this huge iron gear that weighs about 23 lbs. I pack it one handed like a mace around my walking circle. I do laps and switcharms. If you try to actually wield it higher with a flex you get more out of it than just hanging loose. Loops are 1 then 2 then 3, 4, 5 back down to 4,3,2,1. It’s actually 1 left, switch 1 right switch 2 left, switch 2 right… etc etc. takes anywhere from 45min to an hour to go for 1-5-1 loops. Then I do 200 walking lunges around the circle and then sometimes pick up the 18 lb galvanized pipe and do the loops again followed by another 200 walking lunges. That’s my general warm up at night to get me in the mood. Then I go to my yurt and do whatever.
I’ve built my small gym over time and I do love rubber exercise bands. When my universal broke I had to start those and I haven’t stopped. I don’t bench as I don’t have one. I do have a curling bar that I can do some standing lifts (whatever they’re called). I stopped doing upright rows with the bar and but do a similar exercis with the dumbbells. In face I tend to like dumbbells more because I can focus on one arm then switch that weight to the other hand and focus on it while giving the other a rest. By doing this I can do sets. Between sets of day arm curls I will do something else durning the rest like flex, stretch, maybe the bands, wrist curl, finger flex grips devices, plank, eh whatever so the arms can rest. Chest is tricky and basically just pushups, and free weight flies but my top weights are only 25s.
I could probably work out harder but I have to bike to town usually daily and there’s field yard work.
