Kettlebell King Adjustable Competition Kettlebell Review by Kim Fox

View this and other helpful posts at: http://blog.kettlebellkings.com/

Kettlebellkings.com 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.

What is the Best Battle Rope and Why?

Most battle ropes are made out of poly dacron fibers, which are very strong, durable, and moderate weight for their size and tensile strength. Here are some other fibers used to make ropes:


Fiber Type

Strengths

Weaknesses

Poly Dacron

Strong, Durable, Moderate Weight, Most Common, Easily twisted and braided

Not good if exposed to outside surfaces such as sand, bark, dirt, asphalt, and rough cement (like sidewalks and driveways)

Nylon

Strong, Durable

Expensive, Heavy, Not good if exposed to outside surfaces such as sand, bark, dirt, asphalt, and rough cement (like sidewalks and driveways)

Manila/Hemp

Inexpensive

Not as strong, not as durable (sheds), Not good if exposed to outside surfaces such as sand, bark, dirt, asphalt, and rough cement (like sidewalks and driveways)

Polyethylene

Great for outdoor use, except on rough cement

Sheds a waxy/plastic fiber with indoor use, Not good if exposed to surfaces such as asphalt, and rough cement (like sidewalks and driveways)

Other Synthetic Fibers

Not Common

Not Common

Canvas Covering

Great to protect above rope fibers if you are using them on outside surfaces

Adds a bit more weight and material


Two types of rope making: Triple Strand Twist and Braided

The triple stranded twist is the most common style of rope making, as it is cheaper and faster than braiding a rope. The downfall, is that if your rope begins to untwist it is nearly impossible to twist it back to its original shape and length. This poses a big issue, if you are attempting any cyclonic or circular style of exercises: i.e. full body circles, triple wrapped rope pulling, or outside circles.

The braided rope is another method of making a rope, and it creates equal forces directing down the length of the rope when creating waves, circles, static engagement, and rope pulling exercises. It also is more durable. The only issue, is when performing circular waves, you will feel the rope wanting to twist inside of your hands. This is part of the tension that is being “held” by the rope. It will not twist the rope, so therefor your grip has to fight to keep the circles going.

Living.Fit by Kettlebell Kings have witnessed the shortfalls in the battle rope production, so we ordered over 30 ropes from 5 different manufacturers to find the very best battle rope. We made our choice after hours of testing and many uses of each rope.

For indoor use, we selected the poly-dacron braided rope.

For outdoor use, we selected the poly-dacron triple strand twist with a canvas covering.

Each rope is manufactured with over 20 key specifications to keep the quality high, as well as three different thicknesses for your continued progressive overload training.

  • 1 ½ inch thick starter battle ropes (this size has humbled the strongest men and women in gyms around the world)

  • 2 inch thick battle ropes for 50% extra mass and more than double the effort needed to send the waves all the way to the anchor.

  • 3 inch thick ropes for double the mass, and an insane amount of effort needed to send the waves all the way to the anchor.

All ropes are 50 feet in length, which is the best length for improved frequency, physics, and dynamic movement capacity (if you need a shorter rope because of space, you can always tie off your rope at shorter length, but you cannot make a short rope longer).
