The origins of color coding are in competitive kettle bell lifting in which there are international standards for specific weights. Color coding kettle bells is also an easy way to designate particular weights in your gym.

Below, we will go over the international color code if you need ideas and want to follow the standard. Competition style bells are usually all one color (pictured below), indicating the weight.

For example, a 10 Kg bell is pink with black bands on the handle, and an 18 Kg bell is yellow with black bands on the handle. We recommend you read more about receiving a quick, free, dynamic kettle bells workout every week you can click below.

“When performed correctly, all kettle bell exercises are full-body moves, so you’re using more muscles and burning more calories,” says Toronto-based strength coach Chris Lopez, Strongest Level II kettle bell instructor and owner of KettlebellWorkouts.com. Think about a baseball bat, says trainer Jason C. Brown, creator and owner of certification program Kettle bell Athletics.

“Kettle bells create a longer lever arm, which requires you to use more force to move an equal weight the same distance,” Brown says. This recruits more muscles, challenges inter- and intramuscular coordination, and generally delivers one hell of a burn.

When you feel confident that you have the form down sans resistance, reach for a 12 kg/26 lb kettle bell. Since form is so imperative here, Lopez says you shouldn’t move up a weight until you’re able to maintain perfect vertically with your arm, keep the elbow fully locked throughout all 14 steps, and feel comfortable going slow (most people rush due to discomfort).

But because it doesn’t require swinging momentum or extension, a carry has a lower risk of injury than other kettle bell moves, which means you can go a bit heavier. Grab a kettle bell that’s the equivalent of half your body weight to carry in each hand, Brown recommends.

This article will provide you with all the information you need to pick the correct kettlebellweight and perform exercises with proper form. And to make things easier for you, we have included a simple 15-minute kettle bell workout video to get you in the best shape of your life.

I need you to throw away your current perception of weight training, and look at the kettle bell as something new and different. You must do what every trainer in the world hopes you will do: be open, listen, and learn.

While you may not think you need to, having at least one session with a trained kettle bell professional will make an enormous difference in your results. You’ll be using multiple muscle groups at the same time through ballistic, full-body movements.

A kettle bell professional can show you the basics; like, the Clean, Swing, Goblet Squat, Windmill, and Turkish Get Up. When performed properly, kettle bell movements will improve your body control, shorten your workout time, and give you functional results (and physique).

The core movements in kettle bell training have exploded into hundreds of new exercises and techniques. Assuming you’ve been to at least one session with a kettle bell professional and are ready to get started, here is what I recommend based on gender.

A new female kettle bell trainee might pick up the weight, and automatically try to perform a 1- arm upright row (without one thought of lifting technique, mind you), and immediately exclaim, “I can’t lift that!” When done properly, kettle bell movements will improve your body control, shorten your workout time, and give you functional results (and physique) unlike anything you’ve been able to achieve in the past.

A big mistake is selecting a weight that is too light (again, assuming that you have trained with a kettle bell professional). If you do this, you will never perfect your form, you will never progress to heavier weights, and you will not achieve the real benefits that kettle bells have to offer.

Unlike women, most men will look at the 16-kg kettle bell starting weight and say, “That’s way too light! Areas of your core (back, abdominal, and upper legs) will be on fire during your first session.

To maintain proper form, you need a weight that is in proportion to your skill level, which may be low initially. Men who have never used a kettle bell are especially susceptible to muscling through a movement, rather than performing it with proper form.

You will hear this term used more in CrossFit boxes and by most traditional kettle bell instructors. Innit Kettle bells are made with a high-quality, chip-resistant coating that’s strong enough to endure your most punishing workouts.

1) A chip-resistant coating, smooth enough for stamina-building work sets without irritating your hands, yet with just enough texture to take gym chalk. Some other aspects of kettle bell design to consider are: grip diameter, grip width, ball diameter, and the distance from the top of the ball to the bottom of the handle.

This workout will make you so beefy, Hollywood would be crazy not to cast you in the next Marvel movie! Whether you’re a trainer or fitness enthusiast the kettle bell should have a place in your training for the results it can deliver in less time.

Whether you decide to use your kettle bell to supplement your training or as a stand-alone tool you will gather the exact system on how to do so. The benefits of the kettle bell are immense and with this single tool one can create incredible strength, power output, and stamina if used to its potential.

At the Innit Academy we believe the kettle bell can create powerful athletes regardless of your chosen sport and with this system you will have everything they need to do just that. At the Innit Academy we believe the kettle bell can create powerful athletes regardless of your chosen sport and with this system you will have everything they need to do just that.

As part of my FAQ section, I want to help you choose the best weight to start your Kettle bell Training with. Depending on the source you go, to there will be differing opinions on this, so I am recommending these weights based on how I see many beginners cope and with consideration to the type of training I do here.

This is the most vulnerable group, as these individuals need as much focus to be on good form for the exercise, rather than being distracted by the struggle to hold a heavy weight too. I think some beginners put a lot of stress on themselves to be great, especially those who already train.

Strength with Kettle bells takes time to build, and this cannot happen without first understanding what the heck you are doing. Making sure you can perform the exercise effectively before increasing the weight is SO important, which is why I am playing it safe with my recommendations.

When we become arrogant and proud is when we stand to get hurt the most (which doesn’t just apply to Kettle bells). Once you get the hang of the exercises, your confidence will improve and you will feel happier about using that heavy KB.

So there is no reason to be afraid of weight progression, provided your form is good. Many women often struggle with strength, stability, power and confidence, so these things will be overcome quickly with KB training, provided the correct progressions are made.

I can attest to that personally because I have trained with KB's, in this fashion, for over 2 years now and the only part of me that has become “bigger” is my booty! The high intensity and explosive nature of KB training make it very difficult for you to gain much muscle; instead will get a lot stronger and very well conditioned.

Which translates as “tighter” and “leaner” (provided your diet supports your training goals). This may seem “too safe”, but I have seen many men struggle to complete my workouts with weights they normally find easy.

Men tend to try and progress the weight too rapidly, and they end up not mastering good technique. It just happens that the genders do behave differently around weights, and even more so when there are spectators present.

Many people assume that because they can lift Kg with a Barbell or Dumbbell, that they can go right to the equivalent with a KB. I’d recommend testing your SKILL (not your strength) by choosing one of the lower weights first.

However, women should realistically be using 16 kg regularly as an intermediate and moving on to 20 kg and 24 kg as they advance (depending on the exercise). The advantage of these is that the Bell is fairly compact and can be easily racked by smaller individuals and will not be as likely to get in the way of females’ breasts.

The Competition/Pro Grade Kettle bell (usually more expensive): Made of Hollow Steel, they are all the same size no matter the weight. The advantage of this is that your technique never alters to accommodate a different weight through progression.

Personally I love my Pro-Grades, as they have a very stable base for doing push-ups, renegade rows etc, plus the handles are thinner and smoother than most Standard KB, making grip less of an issue. I recommend sourcing good quality Kettle bells with smooth (single cast are best), rounded handles.

I have bought Kb's from Rogue in the past, but I am not a fan of the handles as they are very thick and rough. Color coding your kettle bells can help with group classes and allow the instructor to give clear direction when it comes to weight usage.

I’ve added bands to all of my kettle bells to help with ease of use and this is as much for me, as it is for the rest of the internet. I didn’t make this up, it is an internationally agreed upon Kettle bell competition treaty deal.

To skip the tips and jump straight to the guide, click here. Lose weight / fat loss Gain overall strength Become flexible Increase cardiovascular endurance Etc.

Performing a racked squat with a kettle bell is completely different from a ballistic swing, or overhead reverse lunge. If you can handle a 24 kg swing, that doesn’t mean it’s the right weight to use for high volume or endurance.

If you’re mainly going to be doing slow lifts and carries like, dead lifts, farmer walks, racked walks, goblet squats, racked squats, and even some double arm chest presses etc. Let’s say you would get a 16 kg if you were going to swing a lot, then you could easily get a 24 to 28 kg for these types of exercises.

If you want to work on endurance or cardio, you’ll be doing a higher volume, if you want to work on strength, hypertrophy, then you’ll be doing lower volume. I’ll post a link below where you can see 90+ kettle bell exercises in action.

If so, it will be easier to understand some concepts in kettle bell training, hence, you’ll be safer, so you can increase the weight you choose. Following is a guide on what kettlebellweight to choose, however, you should consider all the points above first and make your own informed decision.

If you’re new to this type of training you might be unsure where to start with your kettlebellweight, or when to move up level. The answers to these questions depend on many factors including your gender, fitness level, and what type of kettle bell exercise you’re doing.

However, if you have a lot of experience with weight training and can bench press over 200lbs, you can try starting with a 40lb kettle bell. A 40lb kettle bell is roughly equivalent to a 20 kg weight, FYI A man who is older or out of shape should start at about 25lbs.

Learning proper form is extremely important in kettle bell training, and starting with too high of a weight can lead to injury quickly. However, if you have a lot of experience with weight training and can bench press over 200lbs, you can try starting with a 40lb kettle bell.

Learning proper form is extremely important in kettle bell training, and starting with too high of a weight can lead to injury quickly. However, women who have previous weight training experience may want to start with a 25lb bell.

You want to make sure you have enough weight to get a good workout in, but not so much that you sacrifice learning form. Some grind style exercises include overhead press, squats, and dead lifts.

Some examples of ballistic exercises include swings, snatches, cleans, and jerks. While these are the two major categories, there are also some varieties that include combinations of grind and ballistic movements.

If the weight is too light you can use your muscles incorrectly and never learn proper form. A trained eye will ensure you’re using proper form and let you know if a weight is too light or too heavy.

When you begin kettle bell strength training you will probably notice yourself getting stronger relatively quickly. If you notice your training getting easier, you may want to increase the weight you are using so that you can continue to improve.

Moving up in kettlebellweight can be a bit more difficult than with traditional weights because kettle bells usually progress in increments of 8.8lbs. This is a pretty big jump so don’t get discouraged if moving up is harder than you expected.

Save yourself from potential injuries by improving your form before you go for the bigger weights. Make sure you’re practicing your technique for each exercise regularly before you move up, especially if you’re starting with a beginner’s routine.

Testing your progress by maxing out should be done sparingly, as it takes your body time to recover after doing this. The main factors to consider when choosing the proper kettlebellweight are your gender and fitness level.

Overall remember to put your form and technique first in your training and you should be increasing your weight before you know it! Despite their versatility, kettle bells have one primary drawback: the gap in available sizes presents a significant increase in weight.

I will lay out a set of guidelines to help you determine when you are ready to make a jump and how to do so safely. Increasing your weight in each area requires a different strategy and set of criteria.

These criteria are not set in stone and do not need to be completely satisfied to safely size up. Your primary criteria should be the ability to demonstrate smooth proficiency and feel a sense of ease with your current selection of kettle bells.

These strategies focus on introducing the next weight at a pace that allows your body to adapt to the increased load. They utilize scaled versions of the desired movements, sets with low repetitions, and structured rest intervals.

The aim is to allow your body to feel the demand of the new challenge with ample recovery to maintain your form and composure. These guidelines seek to determine the level of proficiency with which you can both move and stabilize the weight overhead.

If you pass the above or similar tests, you can feel confident in sizing up. Begin by developing the ability to control and stabilize the new weight overhead.

Pull ups and rows add a perfect accessory compliment to high volume pressing for maximal strength gain. If you are a competent swinger, playing with a heavier weight will not only make you stronger and more explosive, but will also force you to maintain perfect form in the areas that you might have slacked.

These guidelines aim to determine the proficiency in your swing form, and your ability to maintain it. If you pass the above tests and/or feel a sense that you can smoothly move your bell for extended sets or complexes, you can feel confident and safe in swinging a larger bell.

You have my permission to simply try a few swings with a heavier bell, no other preparation (except a proper warm up) required. The rule of thumb is to begin with low repetition and ample rest.

This movement pattern is nearly identical to your swing form and will allow you to adapt to moving the heavier bell. Stay in the bottom position and simply let the bell pendulum forward.

You can perform these as single repetitions by allowing the bell to rest on the ground between swings or link multiple repetitions together by actively pulling the bell back as its begins to swing toward you. The focus of these workouts is to allow you to feel the new weight in a challenging yet safe manner.

To create your own, use the guideline: low repetitions and structured rest. You want to challenge yourself to continue moving, yet allow ample rest to maintain your form.

All kettle bell exercises are based on full body movements so unlike dumbbell training there are no isolation based exercises like bicep curls or tricep extensions. Kettle bell exercises use 100’s of muscles at a time meaning you are able to lift more weight but also condition the body quicker.

The Kettle bell Swing is based on our strongest movement pattern: the Dead lift (see image below). A light kettle bell will not challenge your full body especially not your powerful hips and legs.

Kettle bells are traditionally available in the following sizes and classified in goods, a Russian weight measurement: The perfect kettlebellweight for women to start with a 8 kg (15lbs) or for those with weight training experience a 12 kg (25lbs).

Remember you should start with those big strong exercises using the dead lift movement patterns for the best results. Trust me, I’ve never trained a lady who has started on anything lower than a 8 kg (15lbs) kettle bell.

Women will drag suitcases, carry shopping bags or hold children under one arm, you are stronger than you think, so start with at least a 8 kg (15lbs). I have trained men using kettle bells above 24 kg (53lbs) but for the majority of your basics this is as heavy as you will need to go.

Most women will start their kettle bell journey with a 8 kg (17lbs) and progress to a 12 kg (25lbs) relatively quickly. Most male beginners will start with either a 12 kg (25lbs) or a 16 kg (35lbs) depending on their weight training background.
