Late last week Onnit finally released what it has been teasing for literally months: the Onnit Bigfoot Primal Bells kettlebell! Yup, the same one that The Rock uses. If you get one, you’ll be big and strong like him! (Just kidding, normal people likely can’t even lift the thing.)
On the topic of weight, the Onnit Bigfoot/Sasquatch Primal Bell tips the scales at a hefty 2.5 pood, or 90.28 lbs. Not quite 100 lbs. yet still enough to make you feel like a wimp when you realize there’s no way you’ll be able to exercise with the thing. Maybe start off with the Howler, move on to the Chimp, then to the Orangutan, followed by the Gorilla, and then give Bigfoot a try.
But you don’t necessarily need to exercise with the thing. I know there are some people who just collect the Primal Bells, Zombie Bells (sold out), and Legend Bells to display in the home as decoration. The sculpts are cool enough that a collection of them can act as artwork in the home.
Each one of Onnit’s kettlebells and specialty bells are made with chip-resistant iron so they’re virtually bomb-proof. They’re all balanced as well, so they’re fully functional and can be used daily. You don’t necessarily need to keep these on display and never use them. Beat them up and they’ll still look amazing. Some people even go so far as to paint them to take it to the next level.
You’ll notice that I’m referring to the Bigfoot kettlebell as a Primal Bell rather than a Legend Bell. Despite the fact that Bigfoot doesn’t actually exist, Onnit released the Bigfoot kettlebell under its Primal Bells line rather than the Legend Bells line. Confused? I am too.
The Bigfoot Primal Bell kettlebell is available now on the Onnit Labs website, priced at just under $215. Order one and feel bad for the poor sap who will have to drag it up the stairs to your doorstep.
Last week I posted photographic evidence of the existence of Bigfoot. Today, courtesy of The Rock, I bring you video evidence as well.
Yes, the latest entry in Onnit’s Legend Bells line is the Bigfoot kettlebell, and Onnit is sending it out to all the cool kids. First Brendan Schaub and Joe Rogan got theirs last week, and then The Rock got his today. Soon, former WWE wrestler and soon-to-be UFC fighter CM Punk will be getting a couple of Bigfoot Legend Bells as well.
Although the Bigfoot Legend Bell isn’t available just yet, the Werewolf, Cyclops, and Harpy Legend Bells are in stock and ready to ship. Just head over to the Onnit Labs website and add one to your shopping cart before they’re all scooped up.
Not much is known about the release date of the Bigfoot Legend bell, although in a new video posted by The Rock on his Instagram account, he did drop that each of the Bigfoot Legend Bells will weigh 100 lbs. so at least we know that much.
Bookmark this page and check back soon for news on the release date of the Bigfoot Legend Bell along with other related details.
Just as Onnit dropped the new Harpy Legend Bells kettlebell, Brendan “Big Brown” Schaub has dropped a sneak preview of the upcoming Bigfoot Legend Bell!
Yesterday, Brendan posted an image of the new Bigfoot Legend Bell on his Instagram with the caption “Oooooh hell naaaah!!!!! @onnit found Big Foot! Brace yourselves. If you’re scared, I get it.”
Other than knowing what the new Legend Bell looks like, there are no other details leaked about the Bigfoot kettlebell. One could assume that this will be much larger than the new Harpy Legend Bell, and likely bigger than both the Cyclops and Werewolf Legend Bells. Like the existence of the Sasquatch himself, the release date for the Bigfoot Legend Bell remains a mystery.
Check back soon to find out exactly when this bad boy is released.
Onnit has just dropped the latest in its series of Legend Bells kettlebells, this time it’s the Harpy.
While I had heard the term “harpy” before, I wasn’t exactly sure what one was. My Googling has uncovered that harpy is a female monster from Greek mythology that’s a combination of a human and a bird.
The Harpy Legend Bell weighs in at 12kg or 27lbs. for you Americans. Is it a coinicidence that the lightest of the Legend Bells has the face of a woman? Is this kettlebell designed for women? I’m going to give Onnit the benefit of the doubt and say that the company is not hinting that women are only capable of lifting small amounts of weight. We don’t want the social justice warriors to get angry.
All joking aside, the sculpt for this one is really cool. The sides and top of the kettlebell feature feathers and the front has the angular yet feminine face of the harpy. The rear is inscribed with the weight of the Legend Bell and the Onnit logo.
Like all of Onnit’s specialty kettlebells, the Harpy Legend Bell was 3D scanned and sculpted multiple times to ensure that it’s perfectly balanced. That’s important with a kettlebell, as you don’t want the weight to be improperly balanced to one side, leading you to be off on your throws, resulting in possible injury.
The Legend Bells are all crafted with chip-resistant iron and feature an enlarged handle to increase your grip strength as you increase the size of your muscles.
You can head over to the Onnit website now where you can purchase the Harpy Legend Bell and all the others in this specialty line. The Harpy retails for just $65, which is less than I was expecting. Grab one today before they’re gone!
Wow! I can’t believe that I haven’t updated this blog in so long! Looking back I see that my last post was at the beginning of December, making my last post about two months ago. It’s crazy how quickly time flew by with the holidays, time off work, and spending time with family. That’s no excuse for me to neglect to this blog, but let’s forget about that right now and get on with what really matters: a new Onnit kettlebell!
The latest in the Legends Bell series was released about a week ago. The predictions that I made earlier were little off, which isn’t surprising since they came from Bryan Callen, a man who notoriously gets his facts mixed up or just plain wrong. The guy’s pushing 50 after all, so it’s to be expected.
Onnit dropped the Cyclops Legend Bell kettlebell, which weighs in at a whopping 20 kg, or nearly 45 lbs. That would be heavy for most people, but it’s actually lighter than Onnit’s previous Legend Bell, the Werewolf Legend Bell which tipped the scales at 28 kg, or 62 lbs.
Like the Werewolf Legend Bell–and all other Onnit kettlebells, specialty or traditional–the Cyclops Legend Bell is built with iron to withstand the apocalypse and coated to provide a chip-resistant finish. It’s also custom sculpted and 3D rendered to ensure that it not only looks badass, it’s functional to use as well. The weight of the bell is balanced perfectly so it performs just as a regular kettlebell does. All Legend Bells also feature an enlarged handle for the manliest of men to improve grip strength.
If you’re looking for a new kettlebell but you’re bored with normal kettlebells, this is for you. If you’re a collector of the Primal Bells and Zombie Bells, you need to get the Legend Bells too. They could be a limited edition and they’re selling quickly, so get them before they’re gone. The Onnit Cyclops Legend Bell is available now at the Onnit website for just $104. Not a bad price for a work of art!
