In my short time with kettlebells, I’ve discovered many inspirational people that have helped me stay motivated towards my goal of losing weight. Some of them directly while others through their enthusiasm and dedication to kettlebells via their Instagram feed. Of course, weight loss is just one benefit but there are many more that can be gained from working out with kettlebells. Strength building, flexibility & mobility, and feats of sheer awesomeness to name a few.
We recently ended a scholarship contest where participants were tasked to provide their insight into the benefits of kettlebells as compared to regular weights. There were a lot of late entries, but unfortunately, only one winner could be chosen. Many of the essays submitted contained unique and in-depth information regarding various studies performed proving the effectiveness of kettlebells. There were quite a few participants who even use kettlebells themselves!

If you’ve landed on this page chances are you’re looking for the cheapest kettlebells that money can buy. There are several brands that offer slight discounts if you buy in bulk. However, these generally don’t include a couple of factors that are important to gym owners. It’s also important to not sacrifice quality and safety when purchasing wholesale kettlebells. Considering that you’ll want to offer access to your kettlebells to as many clients at a time, keep these few things in mind.
It seems like challenges such as these are almost always preceded by a period of bad eating and weight gain. Late last year I decided to try a 5-day challenge. This was in response to the 10 days I spent in the Bahamas during my honeymoon. Needless to say, my eating habits were pretty damn awful.
I could go on and on about my time with Skogg System but I’ve already done so in my review! Instead, I wanted to learn more about the background and history of Michael Skogg as it relates to his kettlebell training. So I reached out to him and requested an interview. He was gracious enough to give me some of his time and answer questions about his program as well as some stories about previous clients. I learned several new things about him that I think you’ll find pretty interesting!
I have no idea who coined it, but the appropriately named monster kettlebell should only be used by serious lifters. While there is no set definition, it’s assumed that any kettlebell weighing over 100 lbs. fits that description. Unless you’re Hercules, exercises that require the kettlebell to be lifted overhead are near impossible. Typically, exercises with monster kettlebells include squats, rows, and deadlifts.
In a detailed post, several points are made as to how they came to this decision. Interestingly enough, every one of the 8 points starts off with the word “Facebook”. If it wasn’t clear before, CrossFit is pointing the blame squarely on the social media giant. I’m not going to cover every point, but there are a couple that really stuck out to me.
Even though at this time I’ve had several kettlebells at my disposal, I’ve naturally stuck with my current weight and haven’t touched the others in quite some time. That is until now. I wanted a workout that incorporates 3 different sized kettlebells while still providing a challenge. Surprisingly, I believe I’ve accomplished just that.
For as long as we saw it coming and wondered about how it would change the world of technology, virtual reality has been somewhat unpredictable since reaching the consumer market. We’re a few years in now, and things have moved at a slower pace than expected. But now, affordable headsets are coming out, the number of games and applications available is growing larger, and VR is becoming more familiar and more useful. It’s now fair to ask how it may ultimately affect our exercise habits.
