These Crazy Effective Kettlebells Double As Works of Art

Onnit Primal Kettlebells

A few months ago, we started to switch up our usual cardio and dumbbell routine with some kettlebell training. The combination of front squats, high pulls, deadlifts, and swings left us feeling the burn in muscles we didn't know existed (Seriously. Check out the full kettlebell workout here.) But "beast mode" took on a whole new meaning when we discovered Onnit’s Primal Kettlebells. The hand-sculpted bells come in howler monkey, chimpanzee, orangutan, and gorilla models, weighing 18, 36, 54, and 72 pounds respectively.

These bells are really works of art, evidenced by the number of compliments we got when they were sitting in our office lounge. But they aren’t just a pretty, er, ugly face. They’ve been expertly engineered to be fully functional, properly balanced, and feature enlarged handles for grip strength, so you still get all of the benefits of a standard kettlebell while showing a little more personality.
