We’ve all turned up to the gym, short on time and motivation, only to find every piece of equipment we need for our workout isn’t free. All the dumbbells are gone, the cable machine is in use and all the gym’s barbells are either laying across the back of the gym floor’s loudest granter or even worse, being used as a seat by the guy who likes to take ten minutes between sets.

Faced with this scenario, you have two options: ditch the workout and go home or find a piece of versatile equipment that is underused and undervalued by most of the gym-going community. Packing the same weighty punch as dumbbells, kettle bells are likely to be found in a dusty corner of the gym.

But don’t let their underused fool you; this is a brilliant bit of kit, and while the bros are queuing for a bench, you can take advantage. We run down the best kettle bell exercises and workouts to burn fat, build muscle and increase fitness.

The dead lift adds muscle to your hips, hamstrings, glutes, and back. Stand shoulder-width apart with the kettle bell between your legs and the handle inline with the bony part of your ankles.

Squeeze the handle hard, pull your shoulders backward, and crush your armpits. The kettle bell swing is a fantastic exercise to strengthen your body and burn a ton of fat.

Then, hike the kettle bell back between your legs like a center in football and explosively drive your hips forward. At the bottom of the swing, your torso is too upright and your knees are too far forward: it looks like a squat.

Your arms should feel like noodles because it’s the hips that propel the movement. With a correct swing, the kettle bell should reach around the height of your belly button or chest, no higher.

Use it as a power exercise early in your workout or at the end as a brutal finisher. The push press is a phenomenal, explosive move that sculpts big shoulders, huge traps, and ripped triceps.

It also builds tremendous core stability and forces you to generate power from your lower-body, transfer it up the kinetic chain, and out through your arms, which is integral in every sport. Lower yourself into a very partial squat and explode upward with your legs while driving your arms overhead.

At the top, make sure your biceps are next to your ears and your wrists are flat, not bent backward. This kettle bell exercise will fire up your quads and glutes, while also engaging your core to keep your chest lifted.

Make sure your feet are firmly in place and aren’t lifting off the ground. It’s also a safe and efficient way to bring the kettle bell to the rack position for your overhead exercises.

Then, hike the kettle bell back between your legs like a center in football and explosively drive your hips forward. Use it as a power exercise early in your workout or at the end as a brutal finisher.

Because it travels more distance, the snatch builds more power than the swing or clean. Then, hike the kettle bell back between your legs like a center in football and explosively drive your hips forward.

The most common problem with the snatch is when the kettle bell slams on your forearm at the top. Use it as a power exercise early in your workout or at the end as a brutal finisher.

Once you clean the kettle bell to your shoulder in a rack position, you want to make sure your wrist is flat and knuckles are facing up. Stand with your feet shoulder-distance apart and hold a kettle bell in a rack position with one hand from the dead clean.

This is a phenomenal dynamic exercise that blasts your obliques, strengthens your shoulder, and activates your hips too. Use it early in your workout to light up your core, warm up your joints, and increase your flexibility.

Since your glutes and legs are larger muscle groups, they can handle more load. These power-producing muscles are essential for carrying heavier things and preventing injury.

Bring the kettle bells back down to the ground with a straight spine and don’t let your chest fall past your hips. If you want to slim down your body and tone your muscles faster, start using kettle bells.

Not only will you generate more power, build more lean muscle, and spike your metabolism, but you’ll also improve your balance and stability. Because of its shape, you can push, pull, and swing the kettle bell like nothing else and unlock a new branch of exercises that are impossible with the tools you have now.

If you’re tight on time, or looking for a quick workout you can do anywhere with minimal stuff, all you need is one bell. For those tired of waiting for free weights, machines, or are seeking a fresh and intense way to work out, we’ve asked Mike Steele of Training Room Online in Avon, NJ, for his prescription.

Keep the spine neutral and eyes focused slightly down as you fold at the hips and grab the handles of the bell. Your heels should be positioned firmly flat on the ground and shoulder blades pulled back.

Allowing your hips to support much of the motion, if the bell flops and sways it means too much of the upper body is involved. Hike the bell back like a football between your legs while maintaining the lower-back arch and also hinging at the hips.

The swing is more like a hip hike rather than a squat so it places more of an emphasis on the glutes and hamstrings. Coming out of the deep hike is followed by an explosive hip snap with your knees locking out at the top of the motion.

Be sure to keep the neck of bell in a neutral position during the swing and your heels should always stay glued to the floor. The highest point of the swing should have the bell at hip or chest height, no higher.

Squeeze your elbows in, sit back on your heels and squat down to a range of motion that enables your spine to remain neutral or flat. When you’re coming out of the squat and standing up, keep your weight back on your heels and tighten your glutes and quads at the top.

The answer is to ease your body back into eating with easy-to-digest foods that are wholesome and nutrient dense. Plan your meals ahead of time and stick with the basics, incorporating nutrients from proteins, carbohydrates, and fats.

Examples of protein: Eggs and egg whites, fish, shellfish, chicken, turkey, lean beef, bison, pork, wild game, cultured cottage cheese, plain Greek yogurt, and tempeh. It's also important to include a variety of starches and colorful fruits in your total carbohydrate intake.

Examples of complex carbs: Sweet potatoes, yams, beans and lentils, oats (steel-cut, rolled, old-fashioned), plain non-fat Greek yogurt, refer, fresh and frozen fruit, corn, barley, buckwheat, quinoa, whole or sprouted grains (bagels, breads, muffins, pastas, wraps), and whole-grain rice (brown, black, wild). Unless you're following a specific diet, healthy fats shouldn't exceed more than 30-35 percent of your daily calories.

Examples of healthy fats: Oils (extra-virgin olive, walnut, avocado), marinades made with anti-inflammatory oils, cheese aged more than 6 months, egg yolks, seeds (chia, flax, hemp, pumpkin, sesame), nuts (cashew, walnut, almond, peanut, Brazil, pecan, pistachio), natural nut butters, pesto made with extra-virgin olive oil, and unprocessed coconut. Aim for two palm-sized portions of vegetables in every meal, regardless of whether they're fresh or frozen, raw, steamed, sautéed, or microwaved.

Examples of fermented foods: Refer, tempeh, NATO, kombucha, cabbage, miss, kimchi, sauerkraut, and probiotic yogurt. They're short on nutrients and harder on the digestive tract than their fresh, wholesome counterparts.

In brief, it is a very efficient way to burn fat, and you do not get the same effect from traditional “cardio” efforts, as we’ve come to know. Secondarily, the swing is a marvelous and mighty movement for toughening and shaping the ass, limbering the hamstrings, and strengthening the low back.

Instead, chunk it down into sets of ten, twenty, or maybe even fifty, and work them sporadically throughout the waking hours. If I may venture an idea, do simply leave your kettle bell in a highest area of traffic in your house, say, the kitchen, and each time you encounter the cumbrous thing, work a set of swings to whatever number delights you.

For an added bonus knock a set or two off right before you feed and right after, too, to ensure whatever gourd you take aboard is shuttled off preferentially to the hungry muscle flesh and not promptly converted and deposited where it might come off as unappealing. I said the program is 300 kettle bell swings a day, and that premise, I believe, is plain enough to avoid any further elaborations.

This 300 swings a day protocol is simply a splash of hot sauce, which can decorate nearly any dish and do it one better. (Last Updated On: December 18, 2020)Kettle bells are an awesome workout tool that can train your entire body.

The kettle bells were originally used as counterweights for weighing goods at the market. People would throw them around for entertainment and around the year 1900 Dr. Vladislav Chayefsky, a Russian fitness pioneer began using them in for strength and bodybuilding, and they slowly grew in popularity from there.

Kettle bells of today are usually a round hunk of metal with a handle. There is a bit of sticker shock involved in kettle bell hunting especially if you are looking for the first time.

These are typically the plain round ones too so it is basically just a cannonball with a handle on it, it shouldn’t really cost that much, not to mention dumbbells of equal size are way cheaper than kettle bells are. We scoured the internet looking for an answer and were unable to come up with any real reason why they cost so much.

Ok, enough chit-chat, it’s time to get to check out some sweet kettle bell designs. These kettle bells are all made in America and are pretty freaking cool if you are an animal lover or just want something unique or badass.

These skull bells are also covered in a black powder finish to prevent chipping & corrosion even under heavy training, so they should last a very long time. It also has a nice wide handle so you won’t have any trouble with the grip as well as a flat base to keep it from rolling around.

Some reviewers said it was a bit larger than regular kettle bells that are the same weight so be prepared for it to be bigger than expected. This bad boy is perfectly weighted and fully-functional and also features a chip-resistant coating.

The smooth surface also minimizes friction with the arm and body during a workout. The downside with the Iron man Bells is they are only available in the 40lb size, if you want anything bigger or smaller you are out of luck.

Also, on the downside, they are often sold out but you can sign up to be notified when they are back in stock so you can be sure to get one. Iron skulls are totally badass and these are a bit unique from the other kettle bell designs on the list (even the other skull ones).

The only real negative that comes with This is if you get a nice customized kettle bell you may not want to actually use it. It’s like a piece of art and you might be too afraid of chipping it or damaging if you go ahead and start slamming it around.

As you can see these are kettle bells that are shaped like grenades made by the people at Mad fitter. Mad fitter was started by a Logan Barton who has 11 years of active duty in the navy and is also a Cross fitter.

He is also partnered with 2 other gentlemen who are military members and Crossfires to form the Mad fitter team. Another cool part about Doorbells is that a portion of the profits goes to charities to help past and present service members.

Each Boom Bell is painted Flat Army Green Powder Coat that is chip resistant and can take serious abuse. 3 sizes were out of stock when this article was written, seems to be a common theme among the uniquely designed kettle bell manufacturers as you will find out with the remaining options.

Innit sells various supplements and workout gear including kettle bells and some others pretty cool stuff you don’t really find in from elsewhere like these cool Captain America Shield Barbell Plates. Aside from the possible sharp edges which I think is likely an isolated incident, the Primal Bells are currently sold out on the 72lb and 90lb kettle bells as this article is being written.

I mean, what guy wouldn’t want to play with a set of boobs and get a workout right? There was a big buzz about them in 2013 saying they were soon to be coming out that October, but we cannot find them for sale anywhere or any info of them being sold.

They were designed by Ukraine based team at 306 Creative Communication Agency, and we are not sure whatever happened with the Bob-boobs or if they may still be coming out sometime soon. The good news is all the reviews on the Zombie Bells are very good and these designs are really cool especially if you are into The Walking Dead or zombie movies or just want a really cool kettle bell.

I guess they were a limited edition item that once they sell out they wouldn’t be back but apparently, they sold so well that they might be making a comeback. Demon bells are another really cool set of kettle bells from a company based out of San Diego.

They feature different styles of demons in different sizes along with a pretty cool Spartan Bell. The Sugar Skull sizes are available in hot pink or the traditional black.

While the designs are pretty cool there are a lot of bad reviews on their website and on their Facebook page with people never receiving their product and very bad customer service if any at all. Not sure if this is still the case but I would use caution when ordering from them, perhaps see if they will take a COD so you don’t end up getting stiffed.

These kettle bells are all pretty awesome, unfortunately, availability is not what we had hoped for on many of the designs.
