Hello everyone again and happy new year to all.
I've started doing swings as part of my finishers, with the usual aim of burning fat and keeping muscle. I've done them a few times using a dumbbell but now it's time to buy a proper kettlebell.
I've been doing swings with a 9 kg dumbbell (please don't laugh at me), doing them one arm at a time, because it's difficult to grab the dumbbell with two arms. I do two sets of 20 swings per arm. The following day my glutes and hamstrings give me hell and it's a good feeling!
Now the question: are single arm swings a good excercise respect the usual two armed swings? Or should I go with two arms?
I think about buying a 12 kg kettlebell with the aim of using it with one arm at a time. With that same weight, would the swing be too "easy" with two arms? So, how much of a difference makes the use of one or two arms?
What are the benefits of single arm swings?
Or, should I buy a heavier bell and go for two armed swings?
Thanks in advance, I'll probably have more questions as the answers - hopefully - start coming.
