BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Thank you for purchasing the new Adjustable-weight
ettlebell. The Adjustable-weight Kettlebell allows you
to quickly and easily vary the amount of weight you
use during your workouts. Please read this guide
before using the Adjustable-weight Kettlebell. If
you have questions after reading this guide,
please see the back of this guide.
HOW TO USE THE KETTLEBELL
Depending on which model you purchased, the kettle-
bell has either a 5-lb. housing with five 3-lb. weight
plates or a 10-lb. housing with six 5-lb. weight plates.
To add or remove weight plates, first set the kettlebell
on a flat, level surface. Next, press the button on the
weight lock, rotate the weight lock to the right (coun-
terclockwise), and then release the button.
To add weight to the kettlebell, slide a weight plate
into the lowest open slot. Continue to add the desired
number of weight plates to the kettlebell, working
from the lowest open slot upward. IMPORTANT:
There are three different shapes of weight plates,
and they must be inserted into the proper slots.
See the inset drawing above. The top and bottom
weight plates (A) are thicker and have slanted edges.
The center weight plate (C) is thinner and has vertical
edges (if your kettlebell has six weight plates, there
are two center weight plates). The other two weight
plates (B) have slightly slanted edges.
