Although they might not look like much, take it from us; the kettlebell is your ticket to faster fitness. Packing the same weighty punch as dumbbells, kettlebells can be used in a home gym, or an outdoor workout for a range of different exercises.
Similar to kettlebells, YBells are another powerhouse product (they’re secretly our favourite!). Not only can they be used as a kettlebell, but they also double as dumbbells, a push-up stand or a double-grip medicine ball. Yep, that’s four pieces of equipment in one! Talk about value for money.
YBells are made from a non-slip & non-rust material called Neoprene, enabling you to increase efficiency in your workouts, whilst being able to perform them anytime and anywhere. Our YBells come in a range of sizes to suit all fitness levels including:
- XS (4.3 kg, 9.5 lb) - recommended for those who are new to resistance training
- S (6.5 kg, 14.3 lb) - recommended for those who train but don’t usually use weights
- M (8 kg, 17.6 lb) - recommended for those who usually train a few times a week
- L (10 kg, 22 lb) - recommended for those who are very fit & strong
- XL (12 kg, 26.4 lb) - recommended for those who are extremely fit & strong

Kettlebells and YBells are super versatile and can be incorporated into a range of different workouts. Whether you’re looking to lose weight, build strength, or just increase your overall health and fitness, a kettlebell or YBell is the perfect addition to any full-body workout. They’re a great tool for improving balance, flexibility, core strength and coordination, and are commonly used in functional training programs and classes.
In most cases, for a full-body training session, a kettlebell or YBell isn’t the only thing you’ll need, but the great thing is, they can easily be combined with other pieces of equipment and exercises to create the workout you’re looking for. Kettlebells are especially effective when completing repetitive type exercises, to improve muscle endurance and build full-body strength.
Kettlebells And YBells FAQs
Are YBells better than kettlebells?
We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again - YBells might just be one of our favourite pieces of workout equipment! If you hold them from the inner handle (called a Centre Grip) you get the same even weight distribution as a dumbbell. Or, if you change your grip you can have the uneven weight distribution of a kettlebell. Whilst dumbbells and kettlebells offer similar benefits, they also pack a unique punch, so choosing a tool like a YBell that lets you combine a range of different options in one is a huge win.
What is a YBell used for?
YBells are an extremely versatile piece of equipment that let you combine kettlebell, dumbbell, double grip med ball, push-up stand and unique YBell exercises in one. They’ve been crafted by fitness and design experts to be easy to use for individuals of all shapes, sizes, ages and fitness levels. If we’re being honest, there’s very little a YBell can’t be used for! If you want to learn more, you can check out our unique collection of YBells, or find some workout examples here.
Are kettlebells as effective as dumbbells?
Most exercises you do with dumbbells can also be done with a kettlebell. While dumbbells may be easier to handle, the extra effort you need to properly use a kettlebell is well worth the time and energy. The thicker handle helps to build your grip strength, while the off-centre weight distribution forces you to use your core stabiliser muscles. All in all, kettlebells and dumbbells are equally as effective depending on the workout you wish to have.
