    What exercises to do with a kettlebell that is to heavy for you (32kg)

    Are there any exercise to do with it? Like maybe a kind of deadlift or squat?

    Since the gym is closed because of the corona, the gym gave out free kettlebell to the members to use while its closed, and it was only the heaviest left... are there any good exercises to do with it?

    Suitcase or waiter's carries
    Single leg RDL
    Single leg squats
    Single arm presses
    I can tell time. Time cannot tell me.

    Can you pick it up to your chest?

    Goblet squats

    You can do sumo deadlifts.

    1-armed farmer carries (suitcase walks)

    Static holds

    Hip thrusts

    --The proper plural form of the Latin adjective biceps is bicipites, a form not in general English use. Instead, biceps is used in both singular and plural (i.e., when referring to both arms). The form bicep [sic], although common even in professional contexts, is considered incorrect. (from Wikipedia)

    Have you done two hand swings with lighter weights?
    It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

    It's easy to not be afraid of tigers when you're sitting in your living room watching a television program about tigers. When you're in the jungle where the tigers are, it's quite a different story.

    All good answers above ^^^.
    It all depends on how strong you currently are.
    Sumo DL's and goblet squats should be doable.
    Goblet squats though require some grip strength to hold the KB in position.
    The suit case walk(one arm farmers carry)are good.
    The most important thing with dynamic KB work is technique like on the swing.
    If you've never done swings then i wouldn't attempt them for risk of injury.
    Usually the more simple the movement the less the injury risk.
    Have you ever presses a KB?
    It basically rests on the forearm while pressing,totally different from a DB.
    The center of gravity is different.
    So be smart with what you choose and research what you don't know about before trying something out.
    Good luck.

    Look up various kettlebell workout videos on youtube. HIIT, strength, complex, cardio, etc as keywords. You'll find enough combinations to keep you occupied.

    John Meadows posted a video with exercises you can do at home with bands
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjeudmtmEU4

    I have an adjustable dumbell that I can use for some exercises, but the motivation is not the same as in the gym.

    I'm exactly the same. I used to have a home gym but just found I worked out harder/better in a 'real' gym.

    You need to review your mental attitude and why your training in the first place.
    Actually you should be more focused at home with no distractions and move easily from exercise to exercise.
    No everyone has the discipline to train at home i guess.
    It would be how important your training goal is to you.
    Sometimes i will watch youtube videos before training that are inspiring to help with the motivation.
    Good luck.
