Started KB training and 3rd session already able to Jerk press the 16KG with my non-dominant arm. The rubber bottom doesn't just add aesthetics but noise and impact protection to the surface I'm working on.

Richard (United States) Great product from Decathlon, but if you're planning on getting it shipped it may come in a bit chipped and scratched. The product came is a small box with no protective packaging other than a bag around the kettle bell.

I am delighted that you like the product. This 16 kg Demos kettle bell allows you to combine cardio training with muscle strengthening. Offering a complete workout, it has a wide, practical handle for gripping with one or two hands and features an ultra-durable rubber base that protects floors against impacts.

Tim (Malaysia) Free and fast delivery during lockdown was great. Generally an OK kettle bell but I find the square handles make doing the swing a little awkward.

Difficult to find kettle bells in Malaysia so still grateful that Decathlon stock any. The rounded upper half is very comfortable for racking on shoulders, forearms, waist, thigh, heel, wherever you plan to rest it.

As the handle is not too thick, you could also wear a sort of glove / grip / hand protector if you are so inclined. Now, this is quite a deviation from a stated 16 kg, But let's be real, if you are considering buying a kettle bell from Decathlon, chances are you are not looking to set a verifiable Olympic world record of any particular exercise, otherwise you'd be looking at something 5-10 times this price.

Unfortunately though, the design makes for uncomfortable use and I would think twice about getting more from this range, COVID-19 lockdown may force my hand on that if the other suppliers don't get them in. After 3 weeks of use I have rough, callused fingers and still not got up the same workout frequency, due to letting bruises rest (and these are just from doing setups, no cleans or windmills etc).

My main complaints are: The handle is rough, if you are doing swings then expect rubbing. The colored ring is not flush on mine like the photo but sticks out, the material is soft to touch but if you are doing cleans or windmills the ring is right on the equator, where it hits your arm.

I am not even doing this type of movement, it hurts and I have permanent bruises on my forearm just where it rests from doing get-ups. The rubber bottom, with its pleasing geometric pattern adds to the pain.

On one side, the position directly under the number is not a flat piece but a corner- it is pointy right where your wrist goes. It would be nice if this was round and extended right up to the handle to give some wrist protection.

All kettle bell exercises are based on full body movements so unlike dumbbell training there are no isolation based exercises like bicep curls or tricep extensions. Kettle bell exercises use 100’s of muscles at a time meaning you are able to lift more weight but also condition the body quicker.

The Kettle bell Swing is based on our strongest movement pattern: the Dead lift (see image below). Whenever you pick something up from the floor you are using the dead lift movement pattern.

Remember you should start with those big strong exercises using the dead lift movement patterns for the best results. Trust me, I’ve never trained a lady who has started on anything lower than a 8 kg (15lbs) kettle bell.

Women will drag suitcases, carry shopping bags or hold children under one arm, you are stronger than you think, so start with at least a 8 kg (15lbs). I have trained men using kettle bells above 24 kg (53lbs) but for the majority of your basics this is as heavy as you will need to go.

Most male beginners will start with either a 12 kg (25lbs) or a 16 kg (35lbs) depending on their weight training background. Greetings, last year I started with a 16 kg kettle bell but injured my back due to stupidity in technique, so I gave it a go again last month with a lighter weight and went with an 8 kg.

I have experienced some weight loss with the garbage around my waist starting to fade but I have not gained any muscle. I can still see my rib cage and my neck looks like what you see on Bill Clinton and Al Sharpton.

I believe I am ready to move on now to a higher weight as the 8 kg feels at times like swinging a doll but am I looking for one that would help both with cardio and boosting muscle growth. The 24 kg and 32 kg seem more of a preferred choice among those who have experienced solid gains and developed transformations but I'm not sure if that is too big a leap.

Basically, I'd like to hear about your individual experiences on what weight(s) you have used to notice a growth in your physique. This is quite helpful and yes, I am also limited financially, so I am looking for a weight which I will not outgrow fairly quickly.

Do you have a suggestion on which kettle bell brand(s) offer horns wide enough to accommodate two hands comfortably? I am able to work the 40 kg on some moves (swings, goblets & TGU) but still use the 24 a lot.

Basically, I'd like to hear about your individual experiences on what weight(s) you have used to notice a growth in your physique.

Basically you could still progress with it... Do dead lifts, 2 arm swings, progress to one arm swings, practice cleans, try to press it with leg drive until you can strict press it. This is quite helpful and yes, I am also limited financially, so I am looking for a weight which I will not outgrow fairly quickly.

Do you have a suggestion on which kettle bell brand(s) offer horns wide enough to accommodate two hands comfortably? “Beginner” has a very wide range of physical starting states, even if all people are equally new to kettle bells.

swing, welcome to Strongest Greetings, last year I started with a 16 kg kettle bell ... I believe I am ready to move on now to a higher weight as the 8 kg feels at times like swinging a doll but am I looking for one that would help both with cardio and boosting muscle growth.

I am able to work the 40 kg on some moves (swings, goblets & TGU) but still use the 24 a lot. Obviously the selection of lifts should be thought through carefully (to avoid trauma) and training has to be planned.

I started my Strongest journey with the purchase of a 24 and a Kindle copy of Simple&Sinister. At the moment I work in the 40 with Simple&Sinister but my A+A snatch weight is the 24.

“Beginner” has a very wide range of physical starting states, even if all people are equally new to kettle bells. It describes how to progress. As to brand, I think most are likely OK for 2 hand swings, but I can say for sure that Rogue is good.

I purchased a used copy of Simple & Sinister from Casebooks and hope to receive it by early next week. Best, swing, welcome to Strongest I take it you already own a 16 kg bell and if 8 kg is too light, why not just go with the 16 kg and continue progressing.

I would consider buying another 16 kg but would prefer a weight that would stay challenging for a while and help with building muscle. When the book arrives, I will start incorporating the exercises in the program with the 8 kg to get a feel but plan on going forward with a heavier weight.

I do not think it is a mistake to invest in a small collection of Kettle bells from 8,16,24,32 at least (I have more), but the 32 gave me what the 24 never could, but I would not be there without the 16 and the 24. I do not think it is a mistake to invest in a small collection of Kettle bells from 8,16,24,32 at least (I have more), but the 32 gave me what the 24 never could, but I would not be there without the 16 and the 24.

For hypertrophy, you need a heavier KB than whatever you're comfortably doing volume with now (progressive overload). Set Simple as your objective goal & let the The come with it (Help Me Screw Things Up).

My wife yelled at me when the FedEx guy was struggling up the driveway with double 32s..... To add to the already good suggestions above, if you only want to do swing, and you really only can afford one kettle bell, the 24 should probably be your go-to bell for now.

16 will be outgrown very fast in most cases for men, unless you have existing medical conditions or are of very small build. If you then cannot add more kettle bells, you can do the progression: dead lifts (to practice hinging, bracing, ..., you will get the drills in SAS), 2 hands swings, 1 hand swings, snatch (you may or may not need a lighter kettle bell to learn the snatch though).

If you also want to do other moves that involve arm and shoulder muscles (TGU, press, ...), you will probably also need at least the 16, unless you are already quite strong. A kettle bell is of no benefit unless it is an appropriate weight for your level of strength and technique, for the drills you are using it for, and for your goals and programming.

Do you have a suggestion on which kettle bell brand(s) offer horns wide enough to accommodate two hands comfortably? I own and have used a selection of DragonDoor, Rogue, and Perform Better cast iron bells, and competition bells from Kettle bell Kings and Kettle bells USA (as well as briefly handling a number of other brands). They may be usable for two-arm swings, but none of them are comfortable.

And I think chasing big bells for two arm swings is not an economic strategy, and not necessary to any training goals. For overloading swings specifically, a T-handle (manufactured or DIY) is much more economical (and comfortable).

New York Barbell has these TDS wide handle kettle bells for sale. I haven't used one, so I can't speak to their fit and finish but the handles look wider than normal in the picture.

The question I would be asking myself is... “have I corrected my form issues?” You said you screwed your back up with a 16 kg and poor technique so you bought a 8k. You can get away with it with light weight but moving up to a 24 kg is just asking for more trouble if your form isn’t spot on.

Kettle bell supports all kinds of resistance training Heavy Cast Iron Manufacturing Quality-Each Kettle bell ’s neoprene coating is wrapped around a heavy cast iron core to protect the floor and reduce the impact sound. Cast iron has higher durability and concentration than cement-filled vinyl kettle bells, making the kettle bell more compact, ideal for sports that require some space, such as kettle bell swinging and Turkish wake-up Comprehensive exercise- kettle bell training is ideal for exercising muscles through a variety of complex exercises targeting major muscle groups and twitch muscle fibers to enhance functional strength and exercise endurance Our stock kettle bell weighs 16 kg and is suitable for serious athletes and weightlifters Large handle and flat base-The large handle on the cast iron kettle bell is designed to improve grip, stability and control in a variety of motion and movement ranges.

It's definitely worth seeking advice at your gym on the correct form to avoid injury. These compact weights are small enough to fit into even the smallest rooms and the majority of workouts require just one kettle bell, meaning you could enjoy some fat-torching training time from the comfort of your own home for less than a tenner, as long as your home has literally enough room to swing a cat (NB: don't actually swing a cat in order to ascertain this).

Those venturing out into the world of kettle bells for the first time should go easy on the weight, as the grueling sessions will prove impossible if you can't lift the bloody thing above your head. That said, opting for a puny 2 kg kettle bell could mean you're not facing enough resistance to thoroughly challenge the muscle.

If you're really short of space, you could check out the Växjö KettlebellConnect, which is a digital play on Bow flex Selected Dumbbell, offering a spread of weights in one neat package.e Where vinyl 'bells could save you a few quid, they can be prone to cracking and splitting, plus the handle seams on cheaper models can be scratchy and uncomfortable.

They are made of cast iron and come equipped with a thick handle, the former being great for durability and the latter for improving grip. The neoprene sleeve over the cast iron body will help keeping the floors intact too.

A small pointy bit on the handle can result in a bruised palm after a grueling kettle bell swing session. They all sport flat, non-wobble bottoms, color coded handles and an engraved logo at the front of the kettle bell.

The difference is mainly felt in your wallet: while you will have to pay the premium price Tax kettle bells, the Gym reapers variety will a bit of extra money in the pocket. Signing up for stock alerts and visiting the Gym reapers website often is highly recommended.

Admittedly the Bow flex Selected 840 Kettle bell looks more like an actual kettle than a home weight, but don't let the looks deceive you. As in the case with most one-size-fits all solutions, the Bow flex Selected 840 Kettle bell is trying to appeal to all whilst fails to please the individuals; it is definitely more space-saving than having six different kettle bells lying around in your one-bed flat, but it is also rather bulky, making it a bit less convenient to work out with doing one handed moves.

In addition to this, it can be synched via Bluetooth to a smartphone app that offers a bunch of different workout guides and advice on what weight to select for individual exercises. Plus, you'll have to invest in two of these if you want the ultimate kettle bell workout (squats, two-hand overhead press etc.

The king of suspension weight training has long sounded the bell for kettle bells, as the lumps of iron make the perfect companion to spruce up any dangling Suspension Trainer workout. It also results in that lovely, flat bottom, which makes it's easier to rest the kettle bell on the floor when switching hands during an arduous squat routine.

Tax has added a splash of color to the handles, making it simple to spy the correct weight if swapping between kettle bells mid-workout. I'd say the 16 kg unit is the one to go for if you're a bloke in reasonable shape, but there's a good spread of weights, making this one piece of fitness equipment that will likely outlast the fickle New Year's resolution to shed a few pounds.

Wilkerson Fitness has harnessed its many years of experience in knitting out the UK National Kettle bell Teams when designing and producing its range of superior quality 'bells. Modern casting methods means each bell is formed out of a single piece of metal, meaning no joins or welds, while a distinct lack of cheap plastic handles ensures they come with a lifetime guarantee.

Don't fret, if these prove a little daunting to the introductory kettle bell lifter you can always check out the slightly less hardcore range, which is still brilliantly constructed. The perfect antithesis to the digital delights of the aforementioned Växjö is a good, old-fashioned selection of kettle bells.

Rebel kettle bells don't come cheap, but they are engineered to last, fashioned from premium-grade Iron Ore, not scrap iron (as with cheaper alternatives) and using a one-piece cast mold to ensure the kettle bells feel well-balanced in the hand and built to last. The powder coated finish means they won't flake, chip or rust when covered in sweat, too.

We don't know many professional kettle bell athletes, but we are pretty sure they are very aware of Gorilla Sports and its range of competition-spec swingers. With very strict regulations on dimensions and the aperture of the window (the handle, to you and me), these solid steel numbers are really only for the very serious enthusiasts out there.

Each solid steel unit is individually priced, with the weedier 12 kg model costing around £50. Reasons to avoid It's not always a good idea to go out and blow a large sum on workout equipment on a get-fit whim.

If you're new to the whole kettle bell thing, this vinyl number from Opt is a real bargain, with a cheap but substantial finish proving enough for most novice swingers. The 10 kg maximum mass could feel a little light in time, but for those starting out, or who don't require massive heft from their 'bells, this is great.

The compact size makes it perfect for stashing away at home for the odd impromptu session. Reasons to avoid The vinyl coating swaddling these cast iron weights is a handy addition for anyone worried about damaging their parquet, yet the unit remains robust and a much more long-term option than cheaper all-vinyl offerings.

Body power also offers a very impressive range of weights, with the option to package them up into a small set of, say, 6 kg-12kg increments. That's not a huge maximum weight, obviously, but it allows lighter users to switch between high-resistance and low-resistance/high rep workouts with ease, for not much money.

The vinyl coating may feel cheaper than the cast iron and steel suggestions on this list but all three of these will set you back half the price of a single kettle bell from some other brands. It's simply a solid lump for lifting above your head while screaming like a hungry caveman.

It's also one of the cheaper 16 kg weights on the market, making it very tempting to splash out on a couple to create a pretty awesome home gym set-up. Innit's new line of basic kettle bells strike the perfect balance of economy and performance.

The chip resistant coating is smooth enough for long stamina building work sets without irritating your hands, yet with just enough texture to take gym chalk. Tossing around any old piece of iron may work up a sweat, but only the new line of Innit kettle bells deliver the versatility and performance needed to optimize your workouts.

Ever since its invention in Ancient Greece, Kettle bells have been known to offer numerous health benefits like encouraging core stability. However, for you to experience the countless benefits kettle bells have to offer, you need to use the right weight when exercising.

For men and women who are active and athletic, the kettle bell weight they should purchase should be higher. Handling flashing is the process of filing down the hands’ underside, leaving the surface smooth.

If it has sharp edges, don’t purchase it as this can injure your hands as you work out. If it’s uncomfortable or too tight when you place both hands, don’t buy that dumbbell.

Be careful in purchasing plastic kettle bells, they may appear like the best option because of their affordability, but they do come with their drawbacks. Their major drawback is that they don’t last as long as the cast steel kettle bell does.

In truth, the number of kettle bells you have doesn’t influence your workout routine. The primary reason why experts recommend the use of one kettle bell is because it fully integrates your body during every workout.

However, once you can comfortably perform the proper technique and form for each exercise, you can add the second kettle bell. Therefore, make sure you don’t bite off more than you can chew when choosing the kettle bell weight to purchase.

You’ve breached the barbells and dominated dumbbells, but if you’re still steering clear of kettle bells you’re missing out on arguably the best burn at the gym. Think about a baseball bat, says trainer Jason C. Brown, creator and owner of certification program Kettle bell Athletics.

“Kettle bells create a longer lever arm, which requires you to use more force to move an equal weight the same distance,” Brown says. This recruits more muscles, challenges inter- and intramuscular coordination, and generally delivers one hell of a burn.

The dead lift is a multi joint move, so the average guy can probably handle 32 kg/70 lbs here to start, Brown says. Not only are your shoulders and abs working hard to keep you stable, but there’s more challenge to your grip since all the weight is in one hand.

Lopez actually makes clients ace all 14 steps while balancing their shoe on their fist before they’re allowed to try it with a kettle bell (you can opt for a two-pound dumbbell to save face at the gym). When you feel confident that you have the form down sans resistance, reach for a 12 kg/26 lb kettle bell.

Since form is so imperative here, Lopez says you shouldn’t move up a weight until you’re able to maintain perfect vertically with your arm, keep the elbow fully locked throughout all 14 steps, and feel comfortable going slow (most people rush due to discomfort). But because it doesn’t require swinging momentum or extension, a carry has a lower risk of injury than other kettle bell moves, which means you can go a bit heavier.

Grab a kettle bell that’s the equivalent of half your body weight to carry in each hand, Brown recommends. This article will provide you with all the information you need to pick the correct kettle bell weight and perform exercises with proper form.

And to make things easier for you, we have included a simple 15-minute kettle bell workout video to get you in the best shape of your life. There are a few problems with picking a kettle bell weight depending on your training experience.

I need you to throw away your current perception of weight training, and look at the kettle bell as something new and different. While you may not think you need to, having at least one session with a trained kettle bell professional will make an enormous difference in your results.

You’ll be using multiple muscle groups at the same time through ballistic, full-body movements. A kettle bell professional can show you the basics; like, the Clean, Swing, Goblet Squat, Windmill, and Turkish Get Up.

When performed properly, kettle bell movements will improve your body control, shorten your workout time, and give you functional results (and physique). The core movements in kettle bell training have exploded into hundreds of new exercises and techniques.

When done properly, kettle bell movements will improve your body control, shorten your workout time, and give you functional results (and physique) unlike anything you’ve been able to achieve in the past. A big mistake is selecting a weight that is too light (again, assuming that you have trained with a kettle bell professional).

Areas of your core (back, abdominal, and upper legs) will be on fire during your first session. To maintain proper form, you need a weight that is in proportion to your skill level, which may be low initially.

Men who have never used a kettle bell are especially susceptible to muscling through a movement, rather than performing it with proper form. You will hear this term used more in CrossFit boxes and by most traditional kettle bell instructors.

Innit Kettle bells are made with a high-quality, chip-resistant coating that’s strong enough to endure your most punishing workouts. 1) A chip-resistant coating, smooth enough for stamina-building work sets without irritating your hands, yet with just enough texture to take gym chalk.

Whether you’re a trainer or fitness enthusiast the kettle bell should have a place in your training for the results it can deliver in less time. Whether you decide to use your kettle bell to supplement your training or as a stand-alone tool you will gather the exact system on how to do so.

The benefits of the kettle bell are immense and with this single tool one can create incredible strength, power output, and stamina if used to its potential. At the Innit Academy we believe the kettle bell can create powerful athletes regardless of your chosen sport and with this system you will have everything they need to do just that.
