New Onnit Silkscreened Art Prints and Zombie T-Shirts!

Onnit Zombie Bell Kettlebell T-ShirtFirst off, let me start this post by apologizing for the lack of updates recently. As I mentioned earlier, I was on holidays last week so I took the week off. Then, I got busy getting back to work and couldn’t find the motivation to update the blog during my free time. But I’m back into the swing of things now and hope to update Tight Lightning at least three times per week: every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

For today’s blog post, I just want to point out a few new things that Onnit has on its webstore. I’ve been writing about Onnit a lot recently, mainly because the company decided to drop so many new products all at once. This isn’t a bad thing by any means, but I’ve been writing more about products and less about other things like exercise, food, and other healthy tips to help improve your life.

As you guys know, Onnit released its line of Zombie Bell kettlebells just before Halloween. Onnit also released DigesTech, its new digestive aid to help ease discomfort caused by eating and to help your body absorb vitamins and nutrients more efficiently. If that wasn’t enough, the Onnit 180 rejuvenating drink mix (with Alpha Brain!) that’s designed to help the body recover was also released within the past couple of weeks. But the company also dropped a few other new items that won’t help you improve the way your body looks or feels.

The first of these items is a line of Onnit silkscreened prints. I’ve always admired the artwork that Onnit uses on its shirts. It’s stylish, it’s unique, and it’s not plastered with logos and text. As you can see below, each print relates to an Onnit product without being too obvious. I’m seriously considering ordering the shark print to frame for my house, but the owl with its glow in the dark ink is badass too. They’re priced just under $15 each, so they’re a rather inexpensive way to add some unique artwork to your home. Also worth mentioning is that each print is printed on fine recycled Speckletone stock paper, they measure 18”x24”, and they’re shipped rolled up to ensure they arrive in mint condition.

Speaking of Onnit’s artwork and T-shirts, a brand new Onnit Zombie Bell T-shirt has also been added to the website. Just like the other shirts, the Zombie Bell shirt features the same style of minimal flowing artwork with a splash of color. This one is more like a rainbow really, but it fits with the almost cartoonish style of the artwork. You can check it out at the top of this post, and if you would like to order it, you can find it on Onnit’s website in men’s and women’s sizes.

Onnit Zombie Bells Now Available!

Onnit Zombie Bells Now Available!Oh shit! Everyone has been waiting weeks for these, and now the Onnit Zombie Bells are finally available. I say “they” because there is actually more than one Zombie Bell. In fact, there are four Zombie Bells in total, varying in size of course, and they’re all available right now. Halloween has always been my favorite holiday, and now it’s that much cooler.

Let’s get right into it and take a look at each of these Zombie Bells working from smallest to largest, from the right side of the image below over to the left:

Onnit Zombie Bells Kettlebells

Brain Goblin Zombie Bell
This is the smallest of the Zombie Bells, weighing in at a half pood, which is 18 lbs. He has rotting flesh, exposed teeth, and angry lifeless eyes that stare back at you as you swing him around.

Staple Head Zombie Bell
The Staple Head Zombie Bell weighs a full pood or 36 lbs. He’s missing his nose and his lips and his scalp has been ripped off revealing his skull underneath, what’s remaining of his flesh is held to his head with staples.

Ghostface Thrilla Zombie Bell
The Ghostface Thrilla Zombie bell weighs 1.5 poods or 54 lbs. This guy has an angry sneer, he’s missing a nose and his lips, and like the others, his flesh is rotting off his face.

The Mega Death Zombie Bell
The most badass of all the Zombie Bells is the two pood 72 lb. Mega Death Zombie Bell. This guy too is a little angry that he’s a member of the living dead. Someone’s gotten to him and managed to clamp his mouth shut. While you won’t have to worry about him biting a chunk out of your body, he’s definitely the most intimidating of the Zombie Bells to workout with.

All four of these Onnit Zombie Bell kettlebells are crafted with chip-resistant iron, so if you want to workout with them, they’ll stand the test of time. If you want to display them as works of art, they’re perfect for that too. They’ll also make incredible weapons should a zombie apocalypse take over the world at any time.

As I said, these Zombie Bells can be displayed as works of art, and that’s not hyperbole. They are beautifully crafted with incredible attention to detail. Each Zombie Bell is made to human skull proportions. They’re balanced perfectly as well, so if you do want to work out with them, you can, and they’re feel just like a traditional kettlebell will. But these are infinitely more badass.

Like the Primal Bells, the Zombie Bells are available for a limited time only. If you want to buy one, don’t wait. If you think you might want the whole collection, scoop them all up. If you choose either of the two biggest Zombie Bells in your order, you’ll also get a pair of Onnit Zombie Bell wrist guards to sweeten the deal.

Happy Halloween!

Onnit Zombie Bell Kettlebell

Onnit Zombie Bell KettlebellUpdate 10/28/13: The Onnit Zombie Bell Kettlebells have now been released! They’re are on the Onnit website, there are four varieties, and they are limited in stock! If you’ve been wanting one of these, now’s the time to jump on them before they’re gone!

I’m a fan of zombie movies and I have been for years. The ironic zombie trend became tired years ago as far as I’m concerned and it can die at any time now–no pun intended. That being said, Onnit is hopping on the zombie bandwagon with the introduction of a new Zombie Bell, and it looks amazing.

What’s a Zombie Bell you ask? Well, it’s just like the Primal Bells that Onnit introduced earlier this year, but instead of using the head of a chimpanzee, gorilla, or an ape, this kettlebell features the head of a zombie. You can pretend it’s a severed zombie head that you swing around to prepare for the impending zombie apocalypse.

Like the Primal Bells that came before it, the Onnit Zombie bell is crafted from chip-resistant iron and it features an enlarged handle for enhanced grip strength. It’s also perfectly balanced, so the Zombie Bell not only looks badass, it’s functional as a traditional kettlebell, or as a piece of artwork.

It’s not known currently whether the Onnit Zombie Bell will be available for purchase, but I’ll let you guys know if and when it does become available. In the meantime, head over to the Onnit Labs Facebook page where you can enter the Zombie Sweepstakes to win a zombie survival kit package that includes the Zombie Bell, a steel mace, a new Onnit zombie T-shirt, Alpha Brain, and a couple zombie survival books as well.
