If you are training with kettlebells or thinking of buying a set and ramping up your training, then this blog will help you save time and money.
Many customers who want to buy kettlebells do not know what they want, or which type of kettlebells to choose. We’ll help you choose the right type of kettlebell for you so you don’t need to waste money on getting the wrong type.
There are 2 main types, iron cast kettlebells and steel competition kettlebells.
Let’s start with the iron cast kettlebell, and as they named, these kettlebells are made from iron. Usually black in colour and painted in different finishes. Some are powder coated giving them a rougher textural finish and helps reduce scratches or blemishes. Other kettlebells may be painted with a matte or gloss finish which looks great as well.
Iron kettlebells are always different in shape, as the size of the weight increase; so does the physical size of the kettlebell. The handle also changes and becomes thicker. The benefits of an iron kettlebell is mainly the price is lower than your steel material. They are perfect if you mainly do kettlebell swings.
So let’s look at the competition steel kettlebell. What sets these apart is the uniform size no matter how heavy the weight of the kettlebell is.
