I'm reasonably fit (I swim 4-5x per week) but I want to get some additional toning, particularly on my upper body and core. I want to get weights to keep by the couch so I can workout while vegging out. :)
What do you guys recommend in the kettleball/dumbell debate? I plan to do some basic arm work (curls, extensions) and seated twists. I'm looking to keep costs low (under $20 per pair/kettleball) and I'd probably get something in the 5-10lb area.
Also, what do you do about needing a variety of weights? Should I just accept the fact that I will be buying a variety of weights, or is there a good way to adjust?

Currently working and going to grad school. Given my stress level and time constraints (and with my doctor's blessing), I'm not trying to lose a lot of weight, just be healthy and not gain. Once I get my degree I'll pick things up again.
