Turn your free weights into kettle bells with Kettle Gryps

Setting up a home gym can quickly become expensive when buying a variety of fitness equipment. All that workout gear can take up a lot of space as well. One way to cut down how much you spend and how much space you need for your equipment is to turn your existing free weights / dumbbells into kettle bells with a Kettle Gryp.

A Kettle Gryp is an adapter made of light weight ABS plastic that snaps around an ordinary dumbbell o provide a handle that allows the dumbbell to mimic a kettle bell.

Kettle Gryps are made in the USA, are portable, and are priced at $34.95 from www.kettlegryp.com. Get one and get sweaty.

    OMG!! Definitely getting this!! I have so many dumbbells and was thinking of getting kettle bells but didn’t want double of practically the “same thing” just with different grip. Placing my order now…

        Three things I would keep in mind:

        1) This won’t really function like a kettlebell, because the center of gravity on a dumbbell is different. A kettlebell has all of the weight concentrated in the bell, and even with grips attached to a dumbbell it’s a bit of a different feel.

        2) I would make damn sure it has a strong grip before you do any swings or ballistic movements. You don’t want to send a dumbbell flying mid-swing. And ballistic movements put a lot of strain on the handles; the only time i’ve heard of a kettlebell breaking at the handle is during swings.

        3) This might be a good way to learn some movements, but if you enjoy kettlebell movements you’re better off investing in a kettlebell. If you’re patient and wait for a sale, you could easily pick up a 16kg (35lb) kettlebell for the same price as these. Plus I would not want to do snatches with a dumbbell impersonating a kettlebell, if you don’t have the catch movement down cold at the top of the movement I would imagine a dumbbell would hurt like hell slamming into your wrist wrong (not that a kettlebell doesn’t, but it’s a rounded surface, not a long metal rod).

        These do look cool, but they aren’t the same as real kettlebells, and really, really check the strength before you start tossing around a heavy dumbbell.
