Adjustable Kettleball Weight Sets |It Helps if you Swing hard but it’s not Necessary

Kettle Gryp

If you already own or have access to dumbbells through a gym or a friends dumbbell rack, or maybe you travel and the hotel you are staying at has a set of dumbbells in the hotel health center, then this item is for you. You simply open the handle and place the dumbbell in the center then clamp the handle and you have a perfect kettleball to use for your workout. The Kettle Gryp has the capability to support up to a 55lb. dumbbell. At 1lb. this accessory will become one of your most important workout devices in your gymbag. The Kettle Gryp is a lightweight, durable and inexpensive solution that comes with a lifetime warranty. Also owned by a Veteran owned company that manufactures every Kettle Gryp in San Diego, CA. So get a gryp and you will never lose your “gryp” in reality…Get it? Gryp? Reality?…nothing.

NewMe Fitness Kettlebell Handle

This kettleball handle uses standard 1″ plates used on standard barbells and dumbbells for its weight load. It also uses a one piece metal construction for the handle making it both durable and very secure. On the plate bar section there are screw in fasteners on the top and bottom that tightly hold the plates in to give a secure and safe workout tool for your use. There is no weight max on the literature I can see but this can easily hold at least 100lbs. of plates. The handle is ergonomically designed and built to feel good in your hand or hands. Go get these so you can get a “handle” on things…anything? (…crickets…)

Apex Adjustable Kettlebell Handle

This Apex Adjustable Kettleball has the capability to adjust from 20lbs. – 50lbs. The minimum weight is made up of the kettleball handle of 15lbs. + 5lb. base plate. You just have to remember that there is a 50lb. limit to your kettleball.

This Apex setup contains just the kettleball handle weight and the 5lb. base plate. Leaving it up to you to provide the standard 1″ weight plates to make up the difference. If you already own standard weight plates no big deal.

If you are just starting maybe the included 20lbs. will suffice. You can buy an extra 5 or 10lb. plate when you are ready to add more weight. I think looking for used weight equipment is a grand idea since when people sell their gym equipment they just want it out of their house and usually price their items to sell fast. Or buy your plates at a local sporting goods store. 5 and 10lb. plates wont break the bank. Either way you have options.

The construction of the Apex Adjustable Kettleball is impressive. It uses a solid cast iron base with a powder coating for a durable finish that will help your kettleball last for years to come…Just don’t go “apex” cray cray on me…okay, I stretched on that one.

AmazonBasics Cast Iron Kettlebell Weights

I know that these are not adjustable but what good is a kettlebell review without good old kettleballs in it. The AmazonBasics Cast Iron Kettlebells come in a range of sizes from 10lbs. to 60lbs. The cost ranges from $21.00 for a 10lb. to $70.00 for a 60lb. weight. If you are a prime member shipping is free. Click on the link below to see all the prices for the kettlebells. These are made of  high quality cast iron and have a painted surface for corrosion and durability to provide you with years of service. So please, don’t “cast” dispersions on me…(…crickets…)

BowFlex 840 Kettlebell

BowFlex, the creator of cool looking workout gear has come up with another winner. The BowFlex 840. The numbers mean the minimum and maximum weight of this kettlebell. The low side is 8lbs. and the maximum is 40lbs.

The weight is chosen by a selector switch on the top of the apparatus and the cast iron weight stacks are either discharged at the bottom, and to add them back on you place the apparatus back over the weight stack and lock them back in place. All put together in a slick package.

I mean it looks great and the ratings are above my minimum rating of 4 out of 5 stars I require on all the products I review, but I don’t like the warning of “Dropping the item may cause internal components to malfunction.” As a piece that is meant to swing around and lift above your head I think it is more than likely to drop something, sometime.

When I was in the gym and I used to bench press 100lb. dumbbells I used to drop…okay, throw the weights down on a rubber mat. This warning does not give me great confidence in it…This is just my opinion, I mean there are a lot of satifsied people who use this.

    1. Hi Dana,

      The Kettle Gryp is great, but you still need access to dumbbells. I do have dumbbells so this would be a great choice for me. The Apex is a good choice too if you can handle the minimum weight of 20lbs. If you are careful I also like the BowFlex, just don’t drop them. And for a durable kettlebell I like the AmazonBasics…My gosh I pretty much named all items in my review. I actually like them all. Thanks for the comment Dana.
