What’s the difference between kettlebells and dumbbells?

Dumbbells and kettlebells each fall into the category of free weights, but there are some key differences between them. Kettlebells are built to be easier to hold with both hands, allowing you to perform swinging and snatching movements with them — two of the most popular kettlebell exercises. On the other hand, dumbbells are built for a single-arm grip which is why their weight is distributed on either side, as opposed to being concentrated like a kettlebell’s.


What exercises can I do with a kettlebell?

There’s a wealth of exercises you can do with a kettlebell, but the quintessential one is the kettlebell swing. This is a full-body movement that works your lower body, core and even your arms. You can also use a kettlebell for common dumbbell exercises like bicep curls, tricep extensions, rows, squats and shoulder press.


What are the benefits of using kettlebells?

The main benefit of training with a kettlebell is that it builds functional fitness much better than a dumbbell or a barbell. While the latter two are certainly good for building strength in a specific part of the body, a kettlebell is superior for building the type of strength that you’ll notice in every day life since many of its exercises target your core.


What weight kettlebell should I buy?

This will vary for everybody, but a good rule of thumb is to find a weight where you can perform 8 - 12 reps of a few different exercises before reaching exertion. You can get a gauge of how strong you are by using a 1L bottle of water for some exercises. This will weigh 1kg. To up the ante, place several water bottles in a bag using the same formula of 1L = 1kg to understand your strength level, and then purchase a kettlebell around that weight range.


Are kettlebells suitable for beginners?

Yes, kettlebells are ideal for beginners. They’re one of the most common pieces of equipment for people to start out with since you can hit your entire body with a single weight. Don’t talk yourself out of getting started; pick up a light to mid-weight kettlebell and get into the swing of things!


What are kettlebells made of?

Our cast iron kettlebells are made of—you guessed it—solid cast iron.


Should I buy a single kettlebell or a kettlebell set?

You’ll ideally want a few kettlebells of varying weights, but you’ll still be able to get a good workout in with a single weight. If you do choose to buy a set, go for at least one light kettlebell that you can use for your upper body and one heavy kettlebell that you can train your lower body with. The more kettlebells you have the better, but those two are the most important to invest in.


Can I build muscle with a kettlebell?

You sure can. Whether you’re performing pressing or pulling exercises, make sure you’re working your muscles with progressive overload and eating plenty of protein and your muscles will grow over time.


Can I lose fat with a kettlebell?

Absolutely. A kettlebell is a great accompaniment to cardio exercises as a way to add some extra resistance. Try your next HIIT home workout with a kettlebell in your hands and feel how those extra few kilograms make all the difference.


Do you offer free delivery?

Yes, all orders over £50 qualify for free delivery, though some exceptions apply for Northern Ireland and the Scottish Highlands.


How long after ordering until I receive my kettlebell?

If you place your order before 12pm, your kettlebell will arrive on the next working day. The only exception to this is if your kettlebell is part of a larger order that needs to go on a pallet, in which case delivery will take 3-5 working days through our pallet network.

If your delivery address is in Northern Ireland or the Scottish Highlands, standard delivery times will increase to two working days while pallets will arrive in 5-10 days.


How do I care for my kettlebell after it’s arrived?

Make sure your kettlebell is stored inside in a dry, temperature-controlled environment. Since the build is cast iron, leaving the kettlebell outside for extended amounts of time can cause the handle and outer body to rust.


What’s the warranty on your kettlebells?

All of our kettlebells come with one year of warranty.
