Step 1: Tape one end of PVC pipes.

Step 2: Fill pipes with sand to add weight and keep shape when you bend them:

Make sure that you pack the sand and tape both ends when done.

Step 3. Place in oven for no more than 10 minutes at 450 degrees. They should wobble or bend slightly under their own weight when you pick them up. (Note! You want them pliable, not melted. Watch carefully!) Taped ends may melt a little.

Step 4: Take out and immediately start shaping. I read that some people make a mold to shape it with. I just grabbed both ends and started to bend it with the middle of the handle against the ground. Once I found the shape I desired, quick dip in cold water and presto!

I taped the ends to give the handle a better lock in the concrete. I was going to use wire, but alas, I had none on hand. If you do not like the shape, you can re-heat them.

Step 5: Cut a slit in your cheap ball making sure that you add holes at the end for the handle. The wider the slit, the deeper the handle sits in the ball. Check the handle before the next step to be sure on desire height.

Mix your concrete with water and scoop into ball. Add handle towards the end.

First homemade kettlebell weighs about 32 1bs. Second one weighs about 40.5 lbs because I added some solid scrap metal that I had around the garage. I waited about two days before I used them to allow the concrete to set. They feel good and durable. I’m not going to be throwing them around, so they will serve their purpose well. Enjoy.
