A kettle bell is a type of dumbbell or free weight that is round with a flat base and an arced handle. Kettle bells can be swung, thrown, juggled, pressed, held, moved and manipulated in hundreds of ways.
Kettle bells are a highly efficient way to lose weight, tone your body, increase your cardio-vascular fitness and strength and maintain joint health, mobility and flexibility. They were originally used as handled counterweights (bearing the Imperial Seal) to weigh out dry goods on market scales.
The Russians measured items in “goods.” A Food (16.38 kg, or 36.11 pounds) can be traced back to the 12th century. This type of training was called Shi-SuoGuong (The Art of Stone Padlock) and predates kettle bells by thousands of years.
Kettle bells were used extensively by old time strongmen such as Arthur Saxon, SIG Klein, Clevis Massimo and The Mighty Apollo. His students included the legendary strongman George Hackenscmidt, “The Russian Lion”, who credited him with teaching him everything he knew and Eugene Sand ow, “The Father of Modern Day Body Building”.
In the 1970s kettle bell lifting became part of the United All State Sport Association of the USSR, and in 1985 national rules, regulations & weight categories were finalized. The United States Secret Service & the FBI Counter Assault Team also require their operators to train high repetition, ballistic kettle bell moves.
Today exercising with kettle bells is undergoing a major resurgence and kettle bell training has now become one of the most popular and best ways to lose weight, maintain a high level of cardio-vascular fitness, get stronger and get that sculpted, toned, healthy & beautiful body you've always wanted. Joint health, mobility and flexibility can all be maintained, and even improved, with the correct application of kettle bell movements.

Use left/right arrows to navigate the slideshow or swipe left/right if using a mobile device As a lifter, it's always a bit worrisome to be introduced to a new style of kettle bell on competition day — but my concerns quickly disappeared as I began my warm-up.
These bells are extremely comfortable — the Inner Core Technology places more of the weight towards the handles, improving both rack and overhead positions. I'd highly recommend these bells to anyone looking to step up their kettle-collection! The handle on the Kettle bell has the ideal size window allowing for better insertion, and I like the hollow design they created eliminating the rattling effect of weights inside the Kettle bell.
