hahahah I hear ya on the KB pairs, I have two 30's which are good for endurance work, but only one 65lber, it needs a brother so I can get some real work done. As soon as I get some more money together another KB and a treadmill are getting purchased.

Lucky indeed. I think the heaviest KB i had used prior to that was a 50lb. I can put some serious reps on a 50lb-er, but the 70lb-er takes a little more effort. It is so girthy that the difficulty is not linear in nature between my 45lb and my 70lb.

...and in my experience as a home gym owner, there is ALWAYS one more thing to buy, hrdgain

^^ I can see why that would be. I've only recently started training at "home" again, but I live in a small apartment in Brooklyn, so its tough to keep a lot of gear.

KB's don't take much space. For that matter a good power rack set up has a relatively small footprint too, but then you have neighbors to worry about, and depending on the apartment space is always a premium. Trust me, having moved from a 700-ish square foot apartment in CT to my garage that is probably a good 500 square feet... I know how good it feels to be able to spread out.

I ahve had the debate with a friend a couple times about what I would buy if space was limited... and I'm talking about what would fit in the trunk of my car limited.

I came up with a list like this:
Kettle bells
Sand bags
1 1/2" manilla rope (18-20')
Old car tire with a u-bolt driven through it so you could pull it as a sled

...yeah, that would probably be my top four. With a little ingenuity I could develop a crap ton of training that would hit strength and conditioning.

^^ space was one of the reasons I went with KB's, that and how versitile they are. I'm trying to pick up a used treadmill right now too, god knows I need to do more cardio.

I really cant wait to move out of the city, have a nice big house to spread out in, but thats going to have to wait a few years.

Why not run on the road? I own a treadmill and almost always default to running outdoors.

I've tried running on the road and side walks in brooklyn, but I can never keep a steady pace, and its actually really rough on my knees and back. I've even thrown my back out a few times just from running on the streets here. It sucks, so for now I'll be jumping rope untill I can get a treadmill.

I'd say run on grass it helps my knees-way better than cement, but Brooklyn is probably low on that

Running on grass would be a good idea. And blacktop over cement any day! Though blacktop seems hard, it has a lot more give than cement.

If you can find it, I would locate a grassy hill to do some wind sprints on (up, not down).
