Heavy Metal Strength...as it should be.
Comments: Like a lot of pros in my
business, I too have been "re-educated" by the simple yet effective
Russian Kettlebell (KB). It is an amazing tool. When respected
and used properly, it is also a highly effective and safe tool that will
move you better. KB strength is built on a foundation of stability.
Less efficient strength training builds strength but beyond what can be
stabilized i.e. strength that is not controlled. If you want to
build strength based on stability and control, properly use a kettlebell.
KBs are alive vs. many traditional lifts which seem
"dead" compared to the highly active KB dynamic swing patterns.

the difference? Official RKC KBs from DragonDoor have thicker

brand of KBs. PerformBetter KBs are fine for general use and less
expensive. Another nice alternative if you want the thicker handles
for a better price is to go through LifeLineUSA.

- This is your best choice for value and good quality. LifeLine is a great alternative if you want a
budget-minded KB with the large diameter handles for less money. The LifeLine paint is more mat and a little less quality than
DragonDoor, but not a big deal. We ordered about 50 of the LifeLine
KBs for our college football team, and they worked out great.
