Dynamax ball or 20 pound D-ball. No doubt.
Get dumbells before KB's (you can get hex db's used for great prices) unless you just gotta have the KB's.
BFS is still having a sale on bumpers and Bars.

I second the vote for a D-ball and dumbells.

I was with this group, until I got my 1pd DD kb a few weeks ago. The day I got it, I went on and ordered a 1.5pd, that's how much I fell in love. You may be able to get dumbells for a lot less, but a KB just feels different, and there are some fun things that will leave you crying and peeing blood afterwords.

I'd go with the Med ball. You could kill 2 birds with one stone by picking up a 20# D-Ball: you can do Wall Ball with a D-ball, but you can't slam a Dynamax ball.

As for the dumbbells/kettlebell debate, I have to weigh in on the tight budget side. I picked up a set of adjustable dumbbells at http://www.fitnessfactoryoutlet.com/...kLockDumbells/ and it's the best deal I can find.

Hope this helps.

I have two of each kettlebell size, a 20 lb. and 8 lb. Dynamax, and a 20 lb. D-ball. Without hesitation and with no reservations, I recommend the Dynamax 20 lb. first, the 8 lb. second, the D-ball, then the kettlebells. I see little advantage of the kettlebell over the dumbbell. That said, I do like the kettlebells. I just don't see them as valuable as the other items.
