Re: Sandbag + kettlebell?

I had any idea for a plastic re-fillable kettlebell. It could maybe be filled with a lead shot of some sort. With kettlebell prices so high, any alternative I think would be a good one...

doesn't get super heavy (only 50lbs when filled with shot), but it's out there.

Lead Shot prices arent exactly cheap either. 25lbs bags go for 20-30 bucks a bag. By the time you bought the fillable kettlebell and put 50 lbs of shot in it it would be close to a 100 bucks. Not a great deal IMO.

Re: Sandbag + kettlebell?

Troy Kettlebells are cheaper than buying the lead shot and fillable kettlebell. They are also as good as any kettlebells I have used. There are several crossfit friendly vendors that sell the Troy Kettlebells for as good a price as you will find anything else for. If you are wanting something that you can change the weight on this won't work of course, but if budget is your concern, I would recommend looking into them.
