What Are Kettlebells, and Why Use Them?
This is a Kettlebell. It is an iron ball with a handle. Looks innocent enough, no? Remember the adage "looks can be deceiving." It is innocent when it''s just lying on the floor, but pick this thing up, and start exercising and two things immediately happen. 1.) You''re hooked on it, like a powerful drug, and 2.) You''ll begin an unbelievable fitness transformation. This sport, also called girevoy originated in Russia before the later part of the 19th century. A Kettlebell Lifter, or "girevik" was anyone who trained with the kettlebell. Kettlebell "lifters" or gireviks, compete in 2 primary lifts: 1 arm snatches, and 2 arm/2 KB clean and jerks, both for repetitions. A third type competition exists where the lifter performs a "long-cycle" clean and jerk where the KBs are "cleaned" from the hang position and then "jerked" overhead for each repetition. In the traditional competitions of snatches and C/Js, the top lifters perform over 150 snatches, and over 100 C/Js. This is not only incredible feats of strength, but also incredible endurance, and tenacity. Lifts, however, are not confined to the "competition" lifts. There are many, many others such as; military press, bent press, windmills, the Turkish get-up, 1 leg deadlifts and more. The competition lifts and supplementary exercises make kettlebell lifting a superb strength-and-conditioning routine for athletes, martial artists, soldiers, and anyone else who desires out-of-this-world fitness. In fact Olympic lifts, the "Snatch," and "Clean and Jerk" are two of the most productive exercises anyone can do. They involve more muscles of the body than any other exercise, and due to the explosive nature of the lifts, the workloads are incredibly high. However, due to the technical nature of these lifts with a barbell, high repetition sets are not recommended, but with a Kettlebell, the lifts are less technical so one''s form does not deteriorate making high reps much much safer and introduce the strength-endurance element. Many people suppose that one could get the same benefits from training with dumb-bells. While the total mechanics of why kettlebells are superior to dumb-bells is difficult to explain, here are a few basics.

K2 Fitness Solutions is one of THE oldest producer/supplier of kettlebells in the US. So we know what it takes to make a great kettlebell. Our customers will attest to this as well.

K2 Fitness Kettlebells are markedly different from those available from other companies. We surveyed hundreds of users, potential users, and especially women to see what their preferences were. For our regular sized kettlebells, this means the best handles you''ll find ANYWHERE! Smooth and uniform with no ridges or irregularities. The best size and shape producing a well balanced kettlebell. For the ladies; the results are our 4 kg and 8kg Kettlebell. The 8kg Kettlebell is the same physical size as the cast iron 16kg Kettlebells, but have a smaller diameter handle, and are cast in aluminum. The 4kg kettlebell is the same physical size as the 12kg and has the same handle size as the 8kg and is aluminum as well. Other 4kg and 8kg kettlebells are usually very small, which gives less contact area with the lifter''s arm, making body contact much more concentrated, and creates a need to be much more precise with where the kettlebell contacts the arm. They also have very small handle diameters, which doesn''t work ones grip as efficiently, and of which many women have complained about.
To our knowledge, our kettlebells are THE ONLY kettlebells currently MADE IN THE USA. Other companies are importing kettllebells made with sub-quality iron and little if any quality controls.
