I have a couple of kettle bells..... when I'm in a hurry I will do a couple of swings and clean/press sets.
BUT. If you've never used them..... please find a trainer first..... correct form is super important with kettlebells. One of my deployment buddies (our hubbies were gone together) was a certified kettlebell trainer..... and she sends me workouts occasionally. It's much faster results than a traditional workout.... but I'm crazy and tend to prefer the gym where I have peer pressure.... haha

Haha, I saw the hula hoops too, bought 2 of them, one for me and one for my 4year old daughter. Tuns out she is way better at it than I am, took me two days to even remember how to do it but now that I've got it down my abs have really started to get a work out. I also play on the Wii fit plus when I am in the mood (which isn't very often).

I was in Wal-Mart the other day and saw they had hula hoops for $8. I know that hula hooping, jump roping, mini trampoline and just using canned veggies as dumbbells are easy ways to exercise at home. What are some of your favorite at-home exercises that don't cost much and are easy to do in your living room? I'd love to share ideas and find more ways to keep exercise at home (and on a budget) for those of us who can't get to a gym.
