Kettlebell Workouts: How to Choose Correct Weight for your Workouts

Posted by Kettlebell Kings on 2nd May 2018


If you are new to

kettlebell workouts

you are probably wondering what size 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. You'll want different weights for different workouts, and some advanced moves require two 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 workouts, choose the weight you can strict press 8-10 times. Most men are comfortable starting with a 16kg, and most women start with a 8kg. 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.
