No gym? No problem

A new kettlebell has been launched that allows you to manually adjust the weight when you feel like it. No need to splash out on a full dumbbell or barbell set for those home workouts.

The adjustable weight system allows you to alter the load based on different muscle groups you’re training.

For instance, your legs are much bigger and stronger than your biceps. Instead of having to invest in a full home gym, you can select a heavier weight for a goblet squat, and a much lighter one for the bicep curl.

How does the adjustable kettlebell work?

It features six weights that can be changed in seconds via an LCD digital display. At the touch of a button, you can alter the weight in six kilo increments ranging from 5.5kg to 19kg.

The six-in-one kettlebell contains a built-in bullet stacking system with a rotating weight-selection core that locks in and out of weighted plates, allowing the kettlebell to add or drop weight in seconds. The device uses a cylinder lithium-ion battery which is fully rechargeable in under four hours and holds a single charge for up to 14 hours.

You’ll also be able to track your workouts and general training progress with this device. It’s equipped with six axis motion sensors and designed to be used with the accompanying JAXJOX app.

In addition to the metabolic conditioning this workout provides, all major muscle groups in your body will feel it. You’re effectively getting a full body workout with one single piece of training equipment.

With the adjustable kettlebell, its KettlebellConnect system logs your workouts through Bluetooth and automatically uploads the data to a cloud where it’s added to your profile. Not only can you get individual data from the device, but you can also combine data from other fitness trackers such as Fitbit.

Whether your goal is to get lean and lose weight, gain muscle or just improve your fitness levels, the app features a variety of educational videos and extra workouts from accredited personal trainers.

It is now available in the UK, retailing on the JAXJOX website at £329.99.
