A serious no-nonsense weightlifting system for your vagina. Read on for my Kegelbell review!
Skip to: Design | 360° View | Packaging | Material and Care | My Experience | Overall
Kegelbell Weighted Kegel Training System is an unusual kegel device. First off, the heaviest portion lies outside of the body, instead of inside, which I’ve never seen before. Plus, most kegel devices try to add a marketing angle of sexiness and pleasure (and go as far as to make the kegel balls vibrate), but this one is just geared towards health. This brand is so careful to be health-oriented, rather than pleasure based, that they went and got this system FDA registered (a true rarity for these products).
What are kegel exercises?
Kegel exercises are designed to strengthen a person’s pelvic floor. Some people seem to have naturally strong pelvic floors, but I’m not one of them, so I’ve been doing strengthening exercises for years. A stronger pelvic floor is always something you want to have. It creates stronger/easier orgasms, allows you to give birth easier, and prevents bladder leakage when coughing, jumping, etc. After pregnancy, kegel muscles are weakened, so using exercisers becomes pretty important.
How does this work?
The Kegelbell Weighted Kegel Training System made up of two elements:
- an internal insertable portion (the yellow bulb), which has a long tail that hangs out of your body (like a tampon string)
- an external weight, which attaches to the tail
The system comes with two internal yellow bulbs. They weigh a mere 30 grams (the external portion is what’ll add proper weight), but the larger bulb will be easier to use than the smaller one.
Next, there are three external weights in increasing size: 30 grams, 60 grams, and 120 grams. They stack so you can use more than one at a time. The heavier the weight, the harder your kegel muscles have to work to hold the internal bulb in place. By using increasingly heavier weights over time, you can strengthen your pelvic floor.
This system comes with a variety of bulbs and weights (labelled A, B, and C) so that you can customize your workout, starting easy and gradually working towards harder combinations. Using the internal bulb alone will only weigh 30 grams, but you can work up all the way to 240 grams using combinations of the weights (which is quite a challenge). Once you’ve worked your way up to 250 grams, you can switch to the smaller insert, which will be considerably harder.
I adore the Kegelbell System‘s colour scheme. It’s a light, fresh, lemon yellow, and it looks great combined with the brushed metal of the external weights. Kegel devices seem to always be pink or purple, so I’m lovin’ this yellow.

Packaging – Kegelbell review
I was a fan of the Kegelbell System‘s packaging. It came in a white and yellow square box, clean and simple and health-oriented.
Inside the box, you receive the 2 silicone inserts, the 3 external weights, a quick instructions guide, and a storage pouch.
Material and Care
The Kegelbell Weighted Kegel Training System insertable portion is made from medical grade silicone. The external body weights are silicone overlay on zinc alloy. This makes this system bodysafe and hygienic.
To clean, I recommend rinsing with warm, soapy water before and after each use. Dry and store in your storage bag.
You will really need a lubricant to help insert the silicone bulb (you’re probably not going to be aroused when inserting these, so you’ll need a lot of synthetic help). I recommend a good quality water-based option like Sliquid H2O. If you purchase through Peepshow Toys, for the same price you can get a bundled version of the Kegelbell system, which includes a bottle of this lube.
If you’re pregnant, have any pelvic pain or an infection, or just had pelvic surgery, you shouldn’t use this device. Unsure? Check with your doctor first!
My Experience with the Kegelbell Kegel Training System
The Kegelbell Weighted Kegel Training System kicked my butt.
One of the best things about using kegel exercising devices(instead of just using nothing and clenching your pelvic muscles) is that you can see, without doubt, when it’s working or not. If you stop clenching your Kegels while using this system, the insertable simply falls out. There’s no way to fake it. You have to keep clenching the correct muscles in order for this to work, and that guarantees a workout. I’ve aimed to do at least 5 minutes at a time; if you find that too easy, do 10 minutes.
Once you insert the internal bulb and attached the weight to the tail, you have to let the weight hang there, freely. If you put on underwear, the weight stops working because it’s being supported. If you sit down, the same thing. So for this to work, you have to stand, legs apart, without any pants… and that gets old fast. I was restricted to my bathroom, and there’s only so many minutes you can spend playing games on your phone before you’re bored out of your mind.
Does this work well?
Despite being bored using this (and that’s more an issue with me, not the system), the Kegelbell system is effective. It was great for forcing me to carefully isolate the correct muscles because whenever I wasn’t, this popped out right away. It’s a little exhausting, which is the point. Strengthening your muscles isn’t supposed to be fun or easy. You need to put in hard work to see any results.
I skipped straight to the smaller bulb (but if you’re new to Kegel exercises, try the larger first). In the first two weeks I used this, I was only able to comfortably use 150 grams for the 5-minute duration. Over the last couple of months, I’ve been able to work my way to using all three weights (A, B, and C) for a combined weight of 240 grams, but I can only keep it up for a few minutes before my muscles get fatigued, which is when you’re supposed to stop. But my goal has been to hit 5 minutes per day, so most days I use the smaller insert and the A and B weights for a total of 120 grams, which I’m able to comfortably do.
It’s a work in progress, but the process is simple enough. There’s no annoying companion app for my phone to fiddle with — it’s just the weights and me.
Overall Kegelbell review
I hope this Kegelbell review shed some light on if this product would suit you!
The Kegelbell Weighted Kegel Training System means business. This isn’t a flimsy love egg masquerading as a health product — It’s truly a weight-lifting regime. What I really like about this system is that it’s so customizable. There’s no one-weight-fits-all.
No matter how strong or weak your pelvic floor is, there’s enough variety in difficulty in this package that you’ll be able to find something that suits.
It’s not the most exciting process, but weight-lifting never is (at least not for me), so if you’re looking for a no-nonsense kegel strengthening system, this is one to add to your wishlist.
You can pick up your own Kegelbell Weighted Kegel Training System at Peepshow Toys! For the same price, you can also pick up this bundle with lube and cleansing tissues. Why do I like Peepshow Toys? They ship internationally, only carry body-safe products, and you can get a 10% discount off your whole purchase with coupon code RUBY.
