The reputation of the Kettlebell was assured during conscription for the Red Army. Enlisting officers discovered that certain candidates were fit, strong and ripped. This was because they had plenty of iron in their diet, courtesy of their Kettlebell practice. From that time, the Kettlebell was instituted as the official strength-and-conditioning tool for the Red Army.
The Kettlebell is distinguished from all other resistance training implements by its displaced center of mass. Most resistance training equipment has a central point of balance at equal distance from its extremities (like the barbell or dumbbell). With a Kettlebell, the center of mass is located somewhere in the sphere, some distance from the handle. This imbues the bell with what often feels like a mind of its own.
The swing is the fundamental Kettlebell exercise, and distinguishes it from all other weight training implements because of its focus on training the posterior chain; strong legs and back are the cornerstones of a strong, powerful physique. The Kettlebell is also an excellent choice of implement for many exercises ranging from lunges to Turkish get-ups. Because of the way the sphere rests on the forearm and the handle can function like a stirrup, it makes the weight easier to hold and manipulate.
The ‘Classic’ Kettlebell is so-named because it is the original shape of the Russian bell. The classic shape is well suited to the smaller athlete; the sphere is smaller and makes it easier to use, especially for activities involving two bells, like swings. They are also easier to store as they don’t take up as much space as their Pro Grade cousins.
The Classic Kettlebell. Because you can never have too much iron in your diet.

Finding kettlebells was such a profound experience. I have been weight training for years and can't believe how much better I have found my training with kettlebells. I have heaps more energy and my body is changing so fast I can't believe it! I also have the Sarah Lurie DVD Iron Core Way 1 & 2 and love them for circuit training. She is such a great instructor and her circuits are awesome. Your kettlebells are of the best quality I am just about to buy another one from you. If I could shout it to the world to use kettlebells, believe me I would!
