What difference could there be between one unruly hunk of metal and another? It turns out the answer is "Plenty". After months of using a friends "Brand X" 40KG kettlebells, I bit the bullet and bought a set from Dragon Door. Despite being the same weight, the DragonDoor units are more compact,…Read More

The answer is intensity… THE BULLDOG insists on utter precision, utter concentration and perfect technique… or it will rip you to shreds.
THE BULLDOG is tenacious—it won't let go until every muscle in your body is pure steel.
This kettlebell intends to inflict serious pain on you—and to chase any shred of weakness from your screaming carcass. Only the strong of will and heart need apply… but the rewards will speak for themselves!
What difference could there be between one unruly hunk of metal and another? It turns out the answer is "Plenty". After months of using a friends "Brand X" 40KG kettlebells, I bit the bullet and bought a set from Dragon Door. Despite being the same weight, the DragonDoor units are more compact, and have a lower center of gravity. Floor presses are more challenging (read more effective) and its much easier to stay tight on cleans. The overall finish is smoother(less skin ripping).On top of everything else, the customer service people are first rate. You can always expect some service issues with any service provider, but DragonDoor's service personnel's attention to the smallest detail in taking care of an issue make DD a first rate company to do business with.
This is a great kettlebell. It feels awesome and has a great center of of gravity so when you snatch it it doesn't slam into your forearm. It is very solid made and the handle is incredibly smooth. When I used to train with sports authority kettlebells I always had to wear gloves or it will tear my calluses, but not kbs from dragondoor... highly recommend.
I really like kettlebell complex movements, and to super set them is even better. The 88 pound bulldog is a great finisher. Example; KB Swings, 53 pounder x 50 reps followed by a 70 pounder x 25 reps, followed by the 88 pound bulldog x 15 reps, 5 rounds for time. Then do double KB thrusters; 53 pounders x 15 reps, followed by 70 pounders x 7 reps, folowed by a pair of 88 pound bulldogs x 3 reps (if you can't do the press, just do the front squat, even a single KB goblet squat), 5 rounds for time. You're done, really you are done! Then recover, do this two or three times per week. Add in a good run three times per week and you are good to go, even if your schedule is as filled up as mine. We only get one shot at this life, use what God gave you.
DragonDoor definitely makes the highest quality kettlebells by far! Don't be fooled by competitor brands because those are usually not one-piece iron molds like DDs. Not only do they have top of the line kettlebells but they also have excellent customer service as well!Just wanted to say thanks for every thing
Do NOT- repeat- do NOT buy any other brand of kettlebell. Take it from me. I learned the hard way. The Dragondoor kettlebells are perfectly balanced, perfectly finished, and outstanding quality is guaranteed. The Chinese ones are probably the worst as far as balance and finish. The American manufacturers use an enamel finish that can chip on impact and hurt your hands. ALWAYS go with Dragondoor. I just received my 88 and I love it. I am now looking forward to new strength levels and personal records. You will not go wrong with Dragondoor.
This newly purchased Bulldog is my heaviest KB to date. I keep getting stronger and keep ordering more of them, ever heavier, as I go along. Plus, now I am starting to get duplicates so that I can do bench presses with them and also, of course, double KB exercises. Right now I am using the 88 pounder for Sumo Deadlifts and I keep it (along with a 53 pounder) in my office after for use when I feel i have been sitting at my office desk too much. Use the 53 to do one Get Up each side, do 10 Sumo Deadlifts and then I am ready to sit at my desk some more. My family and friends are now used to me suggesting that they "add a little iron to their diet" when they complain about some malady or physical/mental issue.All I own are Dragon Door KBs. I have trained with others and some are horrible (poor design, shape, balance, craftsmanship, sharp edges, etc.) and some actually, rival the quality of Dragon Door but I just like owning the very best so I stay with Dragon Door. So long as the very high quality keeps ongoing, I will keep buying more!Stay strong!Chris T.
Of course, that's easy when this is only the 2nd anniversary. The bulldog is one bad boy. Just like the 32kg bell took my training to another level, this 40kg bell has blasted it into another dimension.I love training with this weight. It's challenging and you know you've accomplished something when you're done. Even if it's just swings.Thanks Honey for a fantastic wedding anniversary gift!
In a matter of four weeks I progressed from the 35lb.'er up to the 88lb'er on cleans. Forget about swings, high pulls and duck walks.The Kettles have so much carryover, with so much additional flexibility and pure brute strength.Wish I had these growing up -
I am pleased with the 88lb kettlebell however the bottom of my kettlebell is uneven and some of the black epoxy has already chipped off.
This kettlebell should be called The Humbler because that is what it did to me. I had used a pair of 20k KB's for about a year and they had become so easy to me that I just assumed a 40k wouldn't be that tough. I was quite mistaken. Kettlebells don't work the same way as freeweights and dumbbells. For instance, if you can press a 20k dumbbell for 12 reps, then you should be able to press a 40k at least once. It doesn't work that way with KB's. A FANTASTIC PRODUCT, I plan to upgrade and try to tame the Beast next.
