Today, I consider myself one of the converted. I am a huge proponent of kettlebells and kettlebell training. And I am living proof of its effects.
Back around the holidays, I picked up a new pair of jeans. Instead of the 34 inch waist I had been wearing for the past couple of years, I bought a size 32 waist. Over the past few months, I had started to get tired of my pants hanging off of my when I wasn't wearing a belt. Not too bad I thought to myself. Still this was only a single pair of jeans that I added to my wardrobe.
Over the past week, I was wearing those 32 inch waisters, and noticed again, that without a belt on, they were hanging off of me. "I am getting sooooo sick of wearing baggy pants!" Was my reaction. So today I picked up two new pairs of jeans, size 31 inch waist.
I probably could have gone with the 30 inch waist, but I had a real hard time getting those things over my thighs and butt. The waist might have fit but I couldn't even get them on comfortably to find out. I also had to upgrade from the Levi's 550 to the 560. With the smaller waist, I needed to move to the 560's which are Comfort Fit and are roomier in the seat and thighs than the Relaxed Fit. It's tough finding jeans that fit right!! Am I the only guy with this problem? Maybe I should start buying custom-made jeans. That's gotta be expensive huh?
So, as much as I love my kettlebells, I just hope I don't have to keep investing in new jeans. Tough problem to have huh? =)
