Kettlebell Comparison: Kettlebell Kings & Rogue Kettlebells

Powder Coat Kettlebell Comparison

We work extremely hard to create some of the best kettlebells available in the United States. This is done through a rigorous process of research and development, customer feedback and quality control with our manufacturer. As we enter our third year in business we are really happy that our work has resulted in the over 1,000 Five Star Reviews

Part of our feedback process is monitoring different platforms for comments and reviews of our products. Recently, we came across a comparison on Reddit in which a user who has purchased from Kettlebell Kings as well as Rogue Fitness, did a review of both Powder Coat Kettlebells side by side. We wanted to share that review here.  We are honored that someone would compare our kettlebells to Rogue, an industry leader known for providing quality products and service, as we have worked to perfect those same things in our company.

The reviewer evaluated the kettlebells on:

Kettlebell Guide: What Is A Pood?

Posted by Kettlebell Kings on Aug 5, 2016 3:59:41 PM

What is a Pood?

This is common question for folks new to kettlebell, especially if you have been getting your workouts from Crossfit. 'Pood' originated in Russia along with kettlebells and is a unit of measurement for kettlebells in Russia. More specifically it is a unit equal to 40 funt (фунт, Russian Pound). A funt is a Russian pound

What is a Pood in Kilograms and Pounds?

  • It is approximately 16.38 kilograms.  A kilogram is 2.2 pounds. So one pood is also 36.11 pounds.

Often times you will see a Crossfit workout call for 1 Pood, 1.5 Pood or 2 Pood. So, the common kettlebell weights closest to this would be a 16 Kg Kettlebell, 24 Kilogram Kettlebell and a 32 Kilogram Kettlebell respectively.

Introducing Steel Standard Kettlebells

Posted by Kettlebell Kings on Jun 22, 2016 4:21:39 PM

You might think selling kettlebells is a pretty standard operation, but like any business that seeks to meet customer needs and innovate that is not the only case. Not only do we strive to create kettlebells with perfect dimensions and high quality, but we also try to innovate with our kettlebells as much as possible. So we do have a few different kettlebell products that are completely original to Kettlebell Kings or that we were the first to carry. Our efforts have led to the release of our Adjustable Kettlebells and Kettlebell Sport Series, both of which have been very popular and now our Black Steel Standard Kettlebells

What We Desired To Create:

  • an affordable/high quality kettlebell different than what people are used to
  • introduce kettlebell enthusiasts to competition style bells
    • all kettlebells in this series are the same size and dimensions regardless of weight. Even though kettlebells are fairly mainstream, most folks are not familiar with competition style bells. Training with bells that are the same size and shape regardless of weight creates a more uniform experience as your hands, wrists and forearms will always fit the bell the same way regardless of weight. All handle diameters are 33mm.
  • a model that looks different from our traditional competition style bells
    • competition bells are colored to an international standard, we thought some customers might not like being forced to buy a particular color because that is the training weight they need
  • weight increments more people are familiar with
    • a lot of lifters still hesitate when they see kilograms. Most of us have trained our whole lives with 'American style' five pound increments. So for this reason a lot of people forego high quality kettlebell options for lesser quality because of the unfamiliarity with the weight increments
  • an easy way to identify weights
    • color coding is valuable for easy identification of weights in the gym, even though we made the kettlebells all black we still have colored bands on the handles as well as the weight imprinted on the band so you can easily identify a weight among all your other kettlebells

Adjustable Kettlebell - Competition Style Kettlebell

Posted by Kettlebell Kings on Dec 9, 2015 11:26:23 PM is fortunate to have Kimberly Fox review our new 12-32KG Adjustable Competition Kettlebell model. Many different competition style, adjustable kettlebells have come out over the years but none have been able to meet the needs and requirements of serious kettlebell sport athletes. We got our model in the hands of some of the best in the sport to get their opinions about them.
