Row, twist, swing and squat from your own front room with our pick of the best men’s kettlebells to stay in shape from home…

Kettlebells come into their own for swings, cleans and snatches – where they’re more comfortable to use than dumbbells and less technical than barbells – making them excellent for building power.

Discover the best dumbbells for home workouts

Because you’ll often use them unilaterally, in ways that involve holding them at odd angles to your body, they’re also great for teaching your body to ‘resist’ force, building the anti-rotational strength that experts agree is key to long-term health. Finally, because they’re suited to very high reps, they’re great for burning fat.

Unfortunately, however, not all kettlebells are created equal. Look for one with a nice handle: wide enough to comfortably grip with both hands, and with a texture that won’t irritate your hands over dozens of reps.

Ideally, you’ll also want a bell that sits comfortably against your forearm during swings or snatches – big and round is the key, but try it out if you can. The best bells are competition-style – they’re all the same size, whether they weigh 6kg or 32kg, and they’re a joy to swing.

As an all-round option, 16kg is probably the best bet. You might find it a bit light when you get used to swings and squats, but it’ll also let you do a load of pressing variations and high-rep snatches.

If you’re getting a second bell, consider a 20kg or 24kg – the latter is heavy enough for almost any move you’ll want to do.

Without further ado, here’s our pick of the best men’s kettlebells for home workouts…
