Definitely the best line of kettlebells for this price point, and the free shipping easily saved me $100. The weight is well balanced, free of irregularities and adequately rounded on the sides.
My only complaint is with the smooth, painted finish, as the lack of a textured iron grip makes certain maneuvers hazardous to household objects in the vicinity.
Not much more to say about a cannonball attached to a handle! This is truly the meat and potatoes of real-world strength conditioning.
NOTE: if you're new to kettlebells, please do your back and joints a favor and avoid any program from these TV "gurus" like the plague! There are specific internal techniques you must master or you will injure yourself. Period. Pavel Tsatsouline's "Enter the Kettlebell" is the most comprehensive guide I have found for mastering the basics. Follow it, and you will make bigger gains with less pain.
I think you can still get "Enter the Kettlebell" from WalMart.com. It is a very detailed manual, though if you shudder at the thought of reading, he has a DVD version available on his website.
The handle is a little rough and needs to have the paint taken off and then be sanded smooth, but for under $50 delivered to my door it is a great value.
Super fast shipping to store.
Price was the lowest around...half that of the sporting goods store!
Product was well wrapped and in perfect condition. Clean, smooth and free of chips, scratches, etc.
The handle is nice and wide (I wasn't sure by looking at the picture) and works well for double arm swings. Pleasant surprise.
I'll definitely order the larger size when needed.
This is exactly what I wanted and expected. You cannot beat the price and free shipping! I'm now rapidly gaining strength and whittling away the fat by doing Kettlebell Swings 3x/week.
I got the 35 and 50, first kettlebells I've used, so I have nothing to compare them to. Walmart had the cheapest price for the 35 and 50 that I could find, and shipping each to home was only $2-3. The finish is smooth so it doesn't tear up my hands. However, they rub the top of my palm near the base of my fingers, so I cut 2-3" strips from a sock to put over the area, at least until my calluses build back up or I get some chalk.
For reference, I'm a 190-205 lb 25yo male, haven't lifted weights in over a year, but lifted off and on for 5-6 years prior (265 bench, 305 atg squat, 375 deadlift). For initially building technique, the 35 feels good, but it's definitely too light to get in real strength work. With the 50, I can already clean & press for 5 and snatch for 5. My roommate is a 180-190 lb male without as much lifting experience. He thinks the 35 may be too heavy for him to start with, so a good starting weight definitely varies. I would recommend watching online tutorials for the clean and snatch; I banged up my forearms pretty nicely when I first tried, and couldn't even hold the 35 without pain for a week.
The CAP brand from Walmart are the best value on kettlebells that I have found, and I have looked extensively before I bought them. Look for the deals WalMart has for sets of 3, where the cost per pound goes even lower. These are sturdy kettlebells. The only drawback is identifying them because when you have 3-4, it is hard to tell which is which. I have used a silver Sharpie to solve that problem. I like them because they are compact. Some kettle bells have long skinny handles and are too bulky. I like to use them for the Kettlebell swings, and you don't want a long skinny bell for that exercise. I thought I would not use them much because I also have dumbells, but as it ends up, I use them all the time.
How can you beat the prices and with free ship to store it cant be beat. these are great pieces of equipment and the workout you get with them cant be beat. Ordering a 45 lb one time to move up in weight. You wont be dissapointed. As far as people saying theyve come chipped or damamge, it isnt a fashion show its a kettlebell, if you want pretty buy a 5 lb pink one.
various online sources recommend 30-35 lb for a kettlebell beginner man. i am a man who has kept in relatively good shape all my life so i went with 35 even though i am a bit older (49). perfect weight for all the exercises i have attempted so far. think is good design, good size and good feel to handle. there are products with plastic coated handle but i dont think you will need that. think you can spend a lot more for the same thing so do think this was a good deal. it might seem heavy the first few times you play with but for me i knew i had the right weight by the end of the first week. at some point will buy some additional (lighter and heavier) but this should work for general fitness.
Speedy shipping, and seems good kettlebell(I am fairly new to kettlebell training)!
The best part of this transaction was the savings from going site to store. There are cheaper kettlebells out there, but once you factor in the cost of shipping you are paying a minimum of $15 more!
I had originally purchased a 20lb kettlebell to get to know KB's and learn the basic exercises, but found that 20lbs was a bit on the light side relatively quickly. So after a bit of research I learned about Cap brand and then started looking for deals. With site to store shipping is free so saving 16+ dollars made Walmart the cheapest by 13 dollars.
Now about the 'bell. The first thing I noticed was the smooth finish all over. When gripping it for me this was not a problem as it was smooth but not "slick". The handle has had all ridges removed properly, and gives a fairly thick gripping surface. (The handle is alot thicker than the Gold's Gym kettlebell handles.)
My first workout, shortly after I got home with it, consisted of swings and military presses. My back and shoulders really felt it as did my abs to a lesser degree. If you are looking to build a Crossfit home gym, or just want a great single piece of exercise equipment I cant recommend the Cap Kettlebel more.
If you are just getting into Kettlebell training I highly recommend you pick up a copy of "Enter the Kettlebell". Also you definitely should consult your physician.
This kettlebell is comfortable to use. The free shipping offered by Walmart was the deciding factor for me in where to purchase.
Bought this for my husband...he uses it daily and loves it! These suckers are expensive & Walmart was the cheapest we found :)
The kettlebell is good quality. walmart was very quick about responding to my email about the first damaged kettlebell we had received. They sent us a new one no problem and paid for us to send the damaged one back. Thanks Walmart for you fast service.
Very good I like it 45 pound would be a little bit better but it's very nice product
My kettlebell is pretty good, the finish is nice and smooth, no seam in the handle my hands do not get raw and it does not get too slippery when my hands are sweaty. The only thing I can say could be improved is the handle width. I can't get both hands in the handle so my pinky fingers are outside the grip. Not a huge deal but some people might prefer a wider handle.
It is the correct weight, handle is smooth, painted finish is execellent. Best value for the money! Minor additions would be a rubber bottom & slightly textured handle. These additions are not a deal breakers. Just buy it already.
Came damaged from
Transport to store. Good item but not something to order online for delivery. Too heavy to arrive in one piece
It's a cannonball with a handle ... not too complex. What is nice about this product is the finish is smooth and clean. Then handle does not need polishing or anything else ... it's ready to go right out of the box. For the price this is one of the best kettlebell values around.
Was purchased as a gift. My friend was pleased.
I ordered this shipped to home to give as a Christmas present. It arrived with a two-inch wide hole through the outer box, the inner box, a plastic strap around the inner box, and the plastic wrap around the kettlebell. The kettlebell was all scratched up. It must have either been dropped a bunch of times or kicked around the warehouse. Very disappointed in Walmart's shipping.
