    plyo jump boxes and kettlebells

    But I don't want to spend 115+ for each individual one. I was on performbetter.com and all their stuff is pretty expensive. Anybody know of any instructional/how to to make plyo jump boxes?

    For Kettlebells, I am seeing about 55 bucks for a 12kg kettlebell on performbetter.com. Does anybody know of any better prices?

    Its a box... shouldn't be too hard to make your own. Maybe just nail some palletes together.



    As for kettlebells, I would look on Craigslist or a used sporting goods store. Making them yourself isn't worth the effort IMO. Buying quality is important with these I think.

    Cool, so you think the cost is fair?

    For kettlebells? Hell no, but they are still worth it, if that makes sense.

    You could try this DIY kettlebell if you are handy with concrete/rebar.
    Concrete is like $2-3 bucks for a bag and rebar can be found around any construction site.
    Or you can rig the handle out of pipe and angled pipe fittings.
