The best kettlebell is a versatile training partner that won't let you down. A lump of iron with a handle on it, kettlebells are an old-school training tool, and one commonly seen in HIIT classes and used in intense conditioning sessions. The kettlebell swing, the get-up and other classic kettlebell moves are common in lots of HIIT programs.
One big problem when comparing kettlebells to the best adjustable dumbbells is that you're unable to move up or down weights when using them. However, this deal from Walmart offers a three-piece kettlebell set, complete with storage rack, for just $49.99 (opens in new tab). Check it out below, and for similar deals take a look at our dedicated Black Friday weights deals page.
3-Piece Kettlebell Set with Storage Rack | was $89.99 | now $49.99 at Walmart (opens in new tab)
Save $30 on the price of this three-piece kettlebell set complete with a handy storage rack. Kettlebells are expensive purchases when buying them individually, and you're unable to go up or down a weight category – you have to buy the next size up. Not so here, which groups the weights into 5lbs, 10lbs and even 15lbs.
Why get this kettlebell deal?
The beauty of the kettlebell is in its simplicity and versatility. There are so many different ways to use it – from kettlebell curls and presses to more dynamic moves such as get-ups, swings and overhead squats – you'll never outgrow the lower weights.
You could be curling and swinging the 15lbs bell, but on trying a new move, or an existing one in a more dynamic "drop-set" configuration, you can go back to a smaller weight until your muscles have learned the ropes. This killer kettlebell workout will take you through all the moves you need to know.
A word of warning: if this is your first time using a kettlebell, it's important to note that a kettlebell's weight is not evenly distributed, as it is with a dumbbell – rather than a handle and a weight on each side, the kettlebell hangs, with all its weight in one place. So to use it both safely and efficiently, your body needs to be able to counterbalance and compensate for its weight.
Although this makes it an excellent and versatile tool for toning your core and developing muscle coordination, it might not be the most suitable equipment for first-time exercisers or people with poor joint health.
