Find the Right Weight for Your Kettlebell Workouts

Posted by Kettlebell Kings on 9th May 2018


If you are new to kettlebell workouts, you are probably wondering what size of kettlebell is best for you. We get asked this questions a lot, and it's one of the main things that prevents people from getting started with this awesome workout method. There are a lot of choices, but we can give you some guidance to get you started.

  • Get more than one kettlebell. You'll want different weights for different workouts, and some advanced moves require two kettlebells anyway. Be prepared and get two.
  • If you are out-of-shape, use a lower weight. You don't want to discourage yourself by starting out too high.
  • For traditional heavy lift kettlebell workouts, choose the weight you can strict press 8-10 times.
  • Most men are comfortable starting with a 16kg kettlebell, and most women start with a 8kg kettlebell.
  • Consider what your goals are, too--weight loss is easier to achieve with higher reps with a lighter kettlebell, while building muscle is more effective with a heavier kettlebell.
