How Important Is Kettlebell Handle Design?

If you are not having an appropriate abrasive handle of Kettlebell, chances are that you will not be able to progress in training due to shiny/ slippery handles.You just cannot add chalk on shinny Kettlebells, it’s just impossible & those Kettlebells slip from the hand when you train with them.Most Kettlebells available on Amazon are China made and most of them import low quality Kettlebells which are designed poorly. Students do not know or are unaware and after they place order they realize they have made a mistake. Being pioneers of Kettlebell training in India we ensure that students / lifters or fitness enthusiasts buy appropriate Kettlebells.

There is a process to apply chalk to Kettlebells so that the chalk stays with the handle for some time during lifting. Generally for 30 minute or 60 minute marathon lifts we can use chalk multiple times but for 10 min classic it is applied only once before lift. So selection of Kettlebell is extremely important for students as everything depends on the handle.

Why Bottom Hollow ?

Competition grade Kettlebells are bottom hollow Kettlebells and generally the bottom is plate welded. At EKFA we have not welded the plate as its single cast Kettlebell with no moving parts.The main advantage of no moving part is no maintenance, Welding of plate is done with China make Kettlebells & due to poor casting finish the parts come out and make a hustling sound inside the Kettlebell. As we maintain the weight in tolerance of -200/+200 gms the loose parts are not present which gives an advantage for lifters with unique design and very low maintenance.
