Why Strength Training?

As one of the most effective ways to reduce body fat, increase lean muscle mass and burn calories more efficiently, strength training is an important part of any fitness programme. Studies have shown that strength training can also help to increase the endurance of muscles, while also helping to increase bone density, reduce resting blood pressure and improve balance and co-ordination.

Kettlebells are one of the most effective pieces of equipment to use during a strength training session. Offering users a full body workout, they utilise different muscle groups through their ability to be flung, lifted and pushed.

How to Use a Kettlebell

To get the most out of your workout, it is essential that you are using the correct weights. As a guide, the last rep should be struggle. You should still have control over the weight and your form should still be correct but you'll feel like you can't repeat the movement any more.

Kettlebells are ideal for explosive exercises that work major muscles, burn body fat, and build power, but they can also be used to add a new dimension to standard weight training exercises such as chest presses, bicep curls and rows.

Here are a few suggestions to get your started:

Two Handed Kettlebell Swing

With feet hip-width apart, hold the Kettlebell in both hands with palms facing down and arms in front of the body.

Bend the knees slightly and push the hips back into a squat position. Then in one single motion swing the Kettlebell up to shoulder height.

That's one rep. Aim to do 3 sets of 12 reps.

Around the Body Pass

Hold the Kettlebell with both hands in front of your hips and stand with your feet hip-width apart. Release the Kettlebell into your right hand and move both arms behind your back.

Take the Kettlebell with your left hand and bring it back to the front so you have completed a full circle around your body.

That's one rep. Do 10 reps on each side.

Kettlebell high pull

With feet shoulder-width apart, place the Kettlebell on the floor between both legs.

Lower into a squat position and grip the Kettlebell with one hand. Then in one single motion, push through the heels into a standing position, pulling the Kettlebell upwards to shoulder height.

This is one rep. Repeat 12 times, then switch arms. Aim to do 3 sets of 12 reps on each arm.

I've uploaded a couple of pictures so you can compare the size of this to other kettles - also there's a picture of the assembly seam running along the inside of the handle.

It's going to set me back about 9gbp to return the kettle, so I guess I'll be hanging on to it, but it's really only to be used as a door stop. The sheer bulk of this kettle makes it difficult if not impossible to use for a number of activities. (Again see the pictures)

At the price, it's cheap - but it's cheap for a reason.. Personally I shant be expanding my York kettlebell collection beyond this one example.

I work out with kettlebells. I enjoy it. The benefits are obvious and its enjoyable. As a result, I have a few kettlebells of various sizes. The York Vinyl kettlebell is the first time I have moved away from iron kettlebells, a mistake I will not make again.

Firstly, the size is an issue. Due to its large bulk, some exercises are difficult. The vinyl kettlebell is considerably larger than its iron counterpart. I am long limbed, but there are some exercises I will not even attempt with this.

Secondly, and in my opinion most importantly, the vinyl kettlebell has a seam which runs aronnd the diameter of the weight. Initially, this is not much of a problem. However, after an intensive workout with this weight, you will inevitably have some unnecessary blistering to your hands. Blisters and freeweight exercise go hand in hand, but I fail to see the point in using a piece of equipment which will certainly aggravate this problem.

Finally, there are superior kettlebells on the market for a similar price to this one.

Dont consider this item. I advise anyone considering exercising with kettlebells to stick with cast iron ones ( Amazon have a few in a similar price range to this vinyl one ).

I own 8kg (orange) and 16kg (green) York Fitness kettlebells, as well as a more traditional 24kg cast-iron kettlebell. The 16kg plastic-encased York is about 40% larger than my plain 24kg cast-iron kettlebell. So it's quite bulky for kettlebell swings between your legs and I could see that being a problem if you are under 6' tall or have tree trunks for quads as you'd have to widen your stance quite a ways.

Bottom line: it's a great kettlebell in terms of having a comfortable grip with plenty of room for 2 hands, but it's far too wide and unwieldy for 16kg.

If you are looking for a way to work out your whole body that doesn't take hours this is for you. You don't need a room the size of Wembley to use it either. Just push back the furniture a bit and you're good to go! Look out for a good dvd to go with it. Try Kettlebell Bootcamp. There is something for everyone in that.

I ordered one of these after doing a few kettlebell classes at the gym.

In comparison to the more compact cast-iron bells, these vinyl ones are substantially bulkier. This isn't as noticeable when doing swings and squats but did make it less easy when doing overhead presses etc.

I'd also question how robust it is. The one that I was sent by Amazon was defective; the handle had split and the 'filler' was coming out. This may just have been unfortunate but given that these are likely to hit the floor occasionally, I'm slightly concerned. Btw, Amazon handled the return and refund without any problem.

I'm going to spend the extra cash and get a proper iron kettlebell which should be easier to use and more sturdy.

as a beginner i wasn't sure of weight to use so bought 3kg and 6kg Yorkies
the 3kg i find heavy enough for now. They are great to handle, i have quite large hands and
the grip is wide enough, and comfortable, you won't need gloves!
Additonal bonus they were delivered the next day along with DVD to snow bound rural Cumbria!

Nicely balanced, well designed handle. A good bit of kit even if it hasn't got the retro style of a traditional kettle bell

I bought this as I wanted to try doing weight training as well as doing cardio, and heard that kettlebells are more effective than dumbells. So far it's been amazing - it comes with a fantastic poster which explains all sorts of positions and how to use the kettlebell, showing exactly how to hold it depending on which position you are doing so you don't hurt yourself. Very handy if you are a complete kettlebell beginner. You can really 'feel the burn' as you go through the routines and it shows really quickly. One of the best things about this kettlebell is that it's really fun and interesting - I usually hate exercising as I find it boring but I actually love using this, it doesn't feel like exercise! The only thing I would say is that if you're sweating then it does get a bit slippery but it's not a problem at all, nowhere near slippery enough to drop and I'm sure you'd find that with any make of kettlebell. Overall a highly recommended product!
