Often referred to as the "handheld gym", the kettlebell delivers extreme all-round fitness—and no single other tool does it better. The Russian kettlebell can replace: barbells, dumbbells, belts for weighted pullups and dips, thick bars, lever bars, medicine balls, grip devices, and cardio equipment. Kettlebells are compact, inexpensive, virtually indestructible, and can be used anywhere.
Kettlebells forge physiques like antique statues: broad shoulders with just a hint of pecs, back muscles standing out in bold relief, rugged forearms, an armored midsection, and explosive legs.
The shape and compact size of a kettlebell allow one to safely accelerate it on the way down in exercises like swings and snatches. There is a growing body of research that such "virtual force" is exceptionally effective, efficient, and safe at improving many components of fitness: dynamic strength, many types of endurance, muscle building and fat loss.

After 8 years and 4 different brands I am now replacing all my Kettlebells with Dragon Door's.A kettlebell is far more than a hunk of iron with a handle, and even as simple an implement as a it is, there is a lot to it as it turned out. Yeah, they are not going to break, handles can be smoothed if there are burrs and seams, small weight differences are not crucial, one could always repaint it... right?Well, in reality, once you get comfortable with it and start realizing the unique benefit that this tiny "gym in a ball" provides, suddenly the size matters, the shape of the handle matters, the paint matters, and if you are serious and regular about your training, the overall shape and look matter too! It is far, far beyond smoothness of the handle, or holes in the body.The handle size, shape and finish might be subjective, but out of 4 brands DD is actually a pleasure to grab, which is a great motivator to train, especially cross-train because we all hate cross-training, and end up plato-ing or injured. The handle is quite uniform and you don't start focusing on, and hating every imperfection after just a couple of minutes of throwing. The precision casting is uniform throughout and it is comfortable to grab the handle at any spot for more complex routines, unlike others where the connection points are thicker or the shape is just plain limiting and irritating.Dragon Door kettlebells are more compact than some others, which again makes it more convenient to use, and store for that matter, especially for heavier ones. The finishing paint is very resilient, and is just right for any exercise - static or dynamic, no need for chalk, but not going to fly off your sweaty hand. The bottom is strainght and flat, and the KB does not wobble.Dragon Door kettlebells are so solid, well made and yummy, I just want to use it every time I pass by! When my gym got some I realized that paying less, well, never pays. And the extra motivation Dragon Door KBs give me is worth the extra money for sure, which is not that much after all - they will last for generations!
Since I tecieved my 16 Kilo Kettlebell, I have been using it to do my two hand swings. I started with the 12 kilo Kettlebell, then after two months, moved up to the 16 Kilo one. It has been working out fore really well. It is also a perfect size to take along with me on road trips . I can use it to also do my one arm rows and even sumo dead lift high pulls. So you see it really is perfect for a lot of different exercises. At home. I always use my beast, the 106 lb kettlebell to do my favorite exercise of the sumo dead lift. But on the road, it's just to heavy to take along. So my 16 kilo does the job, with the sumo dead lift high pulls. Anyway I really love my 16 kilo kettlebell and will always be using it. Thank you Dragondoor for your great service. I will say that using my kettlebells I have bought from Dragondoor has giving me more muscle now then I had when I joined the military. 63 years young now! And getting stronger every day! Thanks again Dragondoor, Yours Truly, Terry C Travinsky USAF Ret
Flawless manufacturing, the handle especially underneath where most other kettlebells fail, is perfectly smooth with no imperfection that can knick up your hands. Best kettlebells I have used and I have tried the best of the rest.
After buying the 16 kg, my k-bell collection is complete! (I bought out of order: 24 kg, 32 kg, 16 kg). Despite my longterm use of heavier bells, this little gem still has plenty of utility. I use it for long endurance sets and for harder pressing variations (bottoms up, Sotts press, etc.). Down the road, I intend to use ankle weights to increase the weight of the 16 kg to 24 kg, enabling double clean and press workouts. As I age, I expect my use of this weight will become more frequent, as it doesn't beat up the joints while demanding cardiovascular fitness. Overall, I can think of no complaints with this purchase. Prompt delivery, durable finish, and typical Dragon Door attention to detail characterize the 16 kg.
I ordered a 16kg and a 24kb bell on Monday 4/15/13 and they came today, 4/17/13. I can't believe how quickly I got them with standard shipping. I though I would have a couple more days to procrastinate before starting my workout but I guess not:) Quality is also top notch. Could not be happier and will be ordering more when I grow out of these. Also, I debated for some time and did a lot of research. I almost bought another companies' product but decided to give these a try based on overwhelming good reviews. Definitely made the right choice. Handles are smooth and the finish it top notch.Jeff - Madison, WI
Having purchased Convict Conditioning and few other products from Dragon Door I was pleased to find that this russian kettlebell falls in line with what I expected...a top quality product that my sons and I will enjoy for many years if not our lifetimes. Thank you Dragon Door for never comprimising quality. Why I am a customer who keeps coming back.
I've purchased several different brands of kettlebells since 2008. After using these kettlebells at our Russian kettlebell studio for several years, I've learned that you get what you pay for. Our studio's Dragon Doors still looked fantastic despite heavy daily use by countless people. In comparison, a couple of my own kettlebells at home -- from other manufacturers -- were already starting to look worn after a mere year of use. I also saw a YouTube clip of a woman doing a comparison of Dragon Door kettlebells with those from other manufacturers. Her experience matched my own: Dragon Door was clearly superior. Listen: You do get what you pay for! Kettlebells are a lifetime investment. Don't cheat yourself. Buy these! I won't settle for anything less these days. P.S. Dragon Door's customer service is terrific.
I purchsed this to complement my growing stock of Dragon Door Kettlebells ( I own 2 18lbs and now two 35 lbs). These will no doubt last me years and I love the durability of the finish on the newer bells. I own one of the old school bells whose finish still far exceeds the quality of all the copycat bells out now. I will always remain loyal to Dragon Door . Thank you DD!!!!
The quality of your kettlebell is not to be taken lightly - it's exceptional. But what I appreciate most about Dragon Door is it's network of certified trainers around the country who are available to coach newcomers to kettlebell training. My experience recently with one such trainer has been both inspiring and humbling as I learned the importance of maintaining proper form throughout the exercises. My appreciation goes out to Dragon Door for it's integrity to make such valuable training available. For those who can, don't miss this opportunity.
I purchased this 35lb bell for a friend, and as I was carrying it to him I was thinking of ways I could keep it for myself. Everything about this bell is superior to other brands. The finish is the perfect balance of smooth and rough. The handle is ample in both girth and width even for a 35 lb bell, and the shape/ dimensions make overhead work so much more comfortable. There is a clear and noticeable difference between DD bells and others. Now I am looking to replace my cheap bells with DD. On a related note, my friend is thrilled with his bell.
