What I think about Gold’s Gym Extreme Adjustable Kettlebell
If I was looking for a light (20 pounds) adjustable kettlebell, I would consider this kettlebell or the Rocketlok 14-20 Adjustable Kettlebell since both are easy to assemble and add weight.
Even with little or no experienceGold’s Gym Extreme Adjustable Kettlebell presents users with an easy way to add and remove weights. Of all other adjustable kettlebells I have reviewed, I would score it highly on the ease of use.
I also like the fact that this kettlebell maker has made an effort to provide users with a workout DVD something I find useful especially for complete beginners. The handle also is not that bad since it’s smooth and easy to use without injuring your hands. The price is also value for money and affordable for such an adjustable kettlebell.
I however have two concerns with Gold’s Gym extreme adjustable kettlebell, I think the weight range of 3 pounds is rather light for me, I would prefer at least to add 5 pounds for every adjustment. Secondly, the overall weight of 2 pound is also very light for me since I have been used to larger kettlebells like my overall favorite Stamina 36 pounds adjustable kettlebell.
The small weight may be a limitation for those kettlebell users who want to go beyond the 20 pounds weight limit. Nevertheless Gold’s Gym extreme adjustable kettlebell is ideal for someone looking for a light kettlebell weight that can be adjusted without spending more.
