Shred it with Weights

Today I did Jillian Michaels' Shred it with Weights workout, which uses Kettle Bells.  I don't have Kettle Bells and JM says that you can use a dumbbell from three-eight pounds.  I have ten pound dumbbells and four one-pound weights so I hooked my one-pound weights together and used them mostly, although sometimes the ten pound dumbbell and it was fine.

It's similar to the Shred, you do a warm up, a cool down and three circuits in between.  It didn't seem too hard so maybe I should use more weight.  In the third circuit, it got pretty challenging for me but that could be because by then I was really doing it for several minutes in a row.  I was messing around with Anthony in the first circuit and had to keep pausing it.

I enjoyed it, I'd do it again.  It makes me want to get a Kettle Bell and see if it makes a difference.
