Kettlebells – Hands down, the #1 tool you need at home.The magic’s in the bell, literally! It all comes down to architecture of the weight.
Because they are round, kettlebells work your larger, deeper muscles. This not only keeps your joints safe, it also torches calories! Here are the weights that’ll keep you doing awesome at home.
Wait, wait! Read below first before ordering weights online:
Do not order non round/ adjustable bells
You want iron only – no rubber bottoms or vinyl coated. If it’s not iron all the way around your grip will suck – which means you don’t get as strong as fast. Also the rubber bottoms and different coatings will mess up your form and your floors.
