Default 6.5-40kg Adjustable Competition kettlebell.

I haven't tried one of these myself so I can't comment on the quality of construction but judging from the pictures it look's like a well designed product and at that price I'd say it's a good alternative to buying a whole set of different weight kb's. I don't know whether or not they're available in the U.S. but I thought I'd post the link here in case anyone's interested.

That is awesome! Nice find. Doesn't look like they ship to the US though, they consider Scotland and Northern Ireland to be remote locations. I'll have to keep an eye out for those making their way to the US.

Have you been to either place?

There was a very positive review of this product in Fighting Fit magazine by a guy called BJ Rule. He's pretty experienced in the kettlebells.

Quote:
There have been attempts made at adjustable kettlebells in the past. These have been ordinary at best. They weren't much other than a handle with a number of plates and a couple of pins attaching it all together.

In complete contrast to what's gone before, the Wolverson Adjustable Kettlebell is absolutely brilliant. It has the same dimensions as a competition sports bell. The shell weighs 12kg and there are five plates (3 x 4kg and 2 x 8kg), which means you can have anywhere from a 12kg to 40kg bell in 4kg increments. On the Wolverson site it says the bells can be as light as 6.5kg but I couldn't figure this out - unless you only use half the shell...
Mind you, the same magazine argued that Practical Programming wasn't up to much and wouldn't assist you in getting stronger.

No? Is there some logistical issue getting to them? I'm guessing you're going to tell me that it's like trying to cross the Northwest Territory in December. I could understand that. I was just thinking it's much closer (proximity wise) than the US is, so I wouldn't expect them to ship to the US if they didn't ship to countries in the surrounding area.

I've been using kettlebells regularly since June of last year and I have seen lots of improvement in my functional strength. In particular, my grip strength has increased.
