Kettlebells are a useful exercise tool for leg, arm and back exercises. One problem is, though, they are expensive to buy. You can save some cash by making a kettlebell yourself at home. You'll need supplies from a hardware or big box store, plus one to four circular 4.54kg. weights. In just a short time, you'll be ready to pump some iron.
