A set of kettlebells is a great investment if you want to work out at home. These versatile training tools can help you build upper and lower-body strength through compound moves like kettlebell swings or goblet squats.
Walmart currently has some great deals on BalanceFrom kettlebell sets. I'd recommend that you opt for the 45lb set, which contains 10lb, 15lb and 20lb kettlebells.
It's currently reduced to $19.98, which is a cent cheaper than the 30lb set. This is a particularly great deal as weights tend to increase in price the heavier they get.
Why I like kettlebells
Owning a set of kettlebells opens the door to lots of strength-building exercises. I like to add them to my glute bridges, holding it over my hips to increase the difficulty of the exercise. I also do goblet squats and squat thrusters holding a 20kg (44lb) kettlebell, and then shift to a lighter weight for my upper-body exercises.
Unlike dumbbells, kettlebells have an off-centre weight distribution. This means that they test your body in different ways; they can challenge your core stabilization and your proprioception (bodily awareness).
In my opinion, the wide grip on the BalanceFrom models makes these some of the best kettlebells you can buy on a budget.
Deals on lighter kettlebells
If the 45lb set doesn't contain a weight that's light enough for you, try these options instead.
