Somehow your Savvy Shopper has lived multiple decades blissfully unaware of the existence of the kettlebell, an ancient russian workout weight that looks like a cast-iron cannonball with a handle. Kettlebell enthusiasts claim that swinging it around can provide a combined strength and cardio full-body workout in just 20 minutes.
The Weider PowerBell improves on the original by using removable plates to switch between seven different weights, from 5 pounds to 20 pounds. And of course if comes with the obligatory workout DVD, plus a fitness journal to record every detail of your PowerBell workouts and the amazing results.
Make sure you have plenty of room for your workout. With my well-proven lack of coordination, I’m a little leery of swinging and tossing the PowerBell around in front of my new big screen TV.
