Exercise, health, sports, and fitness is changing, almost evolving right before our eyes, and as a result, so too is the equipment being used on a daily basis.
Where as in the past, in order to workout, all that many people required was an adjustable weight bench and a set of adjustable dumbbells, these days, with more and more people following various disciples such as MMA and crossfit, the need for specialist equipment has never been greater.
Kettlebells are now more popular than ever before, and are providing users with a whole host of various benefits. Onnit for example, quickly realized just how important and beneficial these kettlebells could be, which is why they designed their own signature series, including the now world famous “primal” range. Here’s a more in-depth look.
What are Onnit kettlebells?
Well, they’re kettlebells, and they’re made by Onnit. There, that was easy wasn’t it? What’s that, you want more info? Ok, here we go. As mentioned, kettlebells are now a staple part in gyms all over the world, and are more popular now than ever before. Onnit kettlebells come in a variety of different designs, which is one of the main reasons why they’re so popular.
Of course you have the standard kettlebell design (think of a metal ball with a handle attached to the top), but on top of that they have a kettlebell in the shape of a Cyclops face, as well as a kettlebell in the shape of a werewolf face, both of which look great by the way.
However, in MMA gyms and crossfit centers across the world, there’s one type of Onnit kettlebell that is providing especially popular, and that is the “primal bell”, which are kettlebells in the shape of monkeys.
The primal bells are available as follows:
18 lb primal howler monkey bell
36 lb chimp primal bell
54 lbs orang-utan primal bell
72 lb gorilla primal bell
What makes them so beneficial?
As well as being functional, the main benefit associated with Onnit’s kettlebells is the fact that they look so bad-ass. Even their regular kettlebells look great, but if you’re swinging a 72 lb menacing gorilla face between your legs, you can understand why they decided to name them “primal bells”.
The Cyclops and the werewolf designs are just as great looking, made from the best quality iron, with hand sculpted precision, they certainly have to be seen to be believed. People thought that kettlebells were just the latest workout fad, but as they’ve proved so effective, not only at building muscle and functional strength, but for also burning fat and improving core strength and flexibility in the process, kettlebells looks set to stay.
Not only do Onnit kettlebells look amazing, they perform just as well, if not better, than some of the other popular kettlebells on the market today. The iron is chip and rust resistant, so no matter how heavy handed you are, they will look as good as new for years, even decades. The handles are also slightly longer than regular handles, which has been proven to help improve grip strength.
Truthfully, not really. Ok, the primal bells, the werewolf, and the Cyclops bells may be more expensive, but when you see just how cool they look, you’ll realize they’re well worth their price tags.
