Home-made Kettlebells?

Postby jfj33 » June 26th, 2011, 4:43 pm


Hi all,

Just wondering, has anyone come across this video? If so, have any of you tried to make one, and if so, is it useable?

http://www.rosstraining.com/forum/viewt ... =9&t=57435

Careful - the soundtrack probably isn't suitable for work or family, but the content of the video is what counts - feel free to turn off audio if you want to, as there's no dialogue.

If you can't access the youtube video from the page, there's a note underneath with some details on how they created their kettlebells.

I was thinking of having a go at this (KBs seem ridiculously expensive for what they are), and it seems a bit easier than trying to track down the appropriate bits for Tim's home-made KB at my local hardware store.

Any thoughts? Better or worse than Tim's solution?

Thanks in advance, J

I like that better. Brian at 4HB Zone did a bulgarian bag, I still have to do that.

Awesome, love it!

I'm going to give both the Bulgarian Bag and the 'Kettlebag' a go. I’ve obtained a free inner tube from a local tyre dealer - it's got a puncture, but that doesn’t matter when I’m cutting it up.

I’m going to see if I can do this for free just to prove a point!

I’ll let you know how I get on…

I just purchased all required materials from Home Depot and it was about $13. Works great! Only thing is...you need to have your own weights (plates) at home....either that or you can take the shaft to the gym and use the weights they have there. I like this home-made version because you can add weight as you go. I am a beginner and starting out with 15 lbs.

I've had good success with the T-Bar from the book.

I think it cost about 20 bucks and the best part is I can change the weight instead of paying 60 bucks for a new kettle bells.
