Functional, Versatile, Unconventional Training.
SteelBells® are one of the most functional, versatile, and beginner-friendly unconventional training implements available.
Basically a heavy neoprene bag filled with steel shot, Onnit SteelBells are extremely durable and could put up with almost anything you can dish out.
While they can be used for standard lifts like presses, squats, and lunges, the real advantage they hold is in helping you build explosive power and full body stability. Explosive power exercises involve ballastic movements similar to kettlebell training as well as numerous slam drills. Full body stability can be rapidly built through rotational and transverse movements like woodchops, 360s, and rotations. Onnit SteelBells also provide you with a blank canvas to invent and combine your own movements, giving you an endless variety of workouts and exercises to try. SteelBells provide a versatile tool that can be used for sandbag, slam ball, medicine ball, and even kettlebell movements, saving you money and space. Onnit SteelBells are excellent for anyone looking to build functional strength and stamina, including fighters, athletes, soldiers, and anyone looking for a quick, high intensity workout. They are also excellent for grip strength development using both crush and pinch grip exercise variations. If you’re a fighter, arm wrestler, or anyone looking to crush the hand of the next person you meet, you need a SteelBell.
