What is a Kettlebell? The kettlebell, or girya in Russian, is a cast iron weight which resembles a cannon ball with a handle. An ancient Russian exercise device for those seeking a special edge in strength and endurance.
Kettlebells were used by the great strongmen of old "Worlds Strongest Man" Eugene Sandow, undefeated six times world wrestling champion Ivan Poddubny, and the great Arthur Saxon whose lift "The Two Hands Anyhow" of 448lbs has never been equalled.
Soviet weightlifting legends such as Vorobyev, Vlasov, Alexeyev and Stogov started their Olympic careers with old-fashioned kettlebells. The Russian Special Forces owe much of their strength, explosive agility, and never-quitting stamina to kettlebells.
The Eleiko Kettlebell offers a unique handle design which makes it comfortable to use in training and very high quality cast iron hammerstone black plated finish. Pullum Sports are proud to offer this highly robust product from such a trusted source.
