Below, I'll explain which weight is the right one for you, and what else you can pay attention to when purchasing a kettle bell. Are you not very experienced with weight training and do you want to get started at home?
Makes sense that you'd choose a kettle bell, as you can use them for lots of different exercises, meaning you'll be training several muscle groups. However, you will need kettle bells with different weights for each exercise and each muscle group.
In that case, it's fine for you to get started with a heavier kettle bell weight. Getting started with leg exercises is most effective with a 20 kg kettle bell for men and a 16kgkettlebell for women.
As a male, you can opt for kettlebelss with a 16, 20, and 24 kg weight to train your legs. The materials that are most often used for kettle bells are plastic and cast iron.
The advantage of plastic kettle bells is that they usually have bigger handles, making them suitable for people with big hands. Apart from this, it's a good idea to check if the kettle bell has a non-slip layer.
Are you planning to train at the gym or do you have a thick mat at home that you do your workouts on? TIP: Use gym gloves for extra grip.
With the right weight of kettle bell you can build up your muscle strength in the right way and work effectively on your sporting goal. You’ve breached the barbells and dominated dumbbells, but if you’re still steering clear of kettle bells you’re missing out on arguably the best burn at the gym.
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. But resistance is assistance, so going too light or too heavy can compromise technique — not to mention increase your risk of injury with the added momentum of most moves, Brown adds.
The general rule of thumb is the more joints involved, the heavier the kettle bell weight you can use. The dead lift is a multi joint move, so the average guy can probably handle 32 kg/70 lbs here to start, Brown says.
Not only are your shoulders and abs working hard to keep you stable, but there’s more challenge to your grip since all the weight is in one hand. “Most use a goblet squat solely as a mobility exercise — they get low and do a hip pry.
“It teaches a powerful hip snap and can be a great bicep and PEC builder — but it’s difficult to master the clean unless you really have your swing dialed-in,” Lopez says. Turkish Get-Up This move involves a lot more than just lying down and standing up with a weight overhead.
“The get-up is known in most training circles as the perfect exercise because the whole move — all 14 steps — includes every possible human movement pattern,” Lopez explains. Lopez actually makes clients ace all 14 steps while balancing their shoe on their fist before they’re allowed to try it with a kettle bell (you can opt for a two-pound dumbbell to save face at the gym).
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.

The actual VAT requirements and rates may vary depending on the final sale. Those things in the corner of your gym shaped like metal purses, that you see people picking up and swinging around like they’re trying to waft away a fart.
Until this week, I’d never really attacked the kettle bells that seriously, instead preferring to wander over midway through a workout and half-heartedly swing them around until I’d got my breath back. However, I’d heard that you could get a full-body workout purely by using a kettle bell, so I found a program online and set to work.
It was still centered around the swing — where you hold a kettle bell two-handed and draw it up until it’s at arm’s length and at chest height — but also included moves such as clean and jerks, dead lifts and rows. There is also an exercise called the Turkish get-up ”, where you repeatedly lie on the floor and stand up, keeping the kettle bell above your head at all times, which stopped being fun incredibly quickly.
One major advantage that kettle bells have over dumbbells is that you don’t need a wide range of weight increments to create a workout with them. Rather, we’ve modified these exercises to more user-friendly—but still supremely challenging—versions that will allow someone of any experience level to train safely and with optimal form.
Use this routine to build strength and burn fat now, and develop the requisite stability and mobility to graduate to more advanced exercises at a later date. Perform the exercises as a circuit, completing one set of each in sequence without rest in between.
When you’ve completed the entire circuit, rest 1–2 minutes, and then repeat for 3 total rounds. Take a deep breath into your belly and twist your feet into the ground (imagine screwing them down without actually moving them) and squat, keeping your torso upright.
Place the kettle bell on the floor and take a staggered stance with your right foot in front. Rest your right elbow on your right thigh for support and reach for the kettle bell with your left hand.
Stand tall holding the kettle bell in one hand at shoulder level. TIP: “Don’t get fixated on achieving a full overhead lockout right away,” says John Wolf, Innit’s Chief Fitness Officer.
“Just going to where your elbow is bent 90 degrees and holding it isometrically is a ton of work for most people.” If you need to arch your back, causing your ribs to flare in order to lock out your arm overhead, you’re not training the shoulder effectively. Stand with feet between hip and shoulder-width apart and hold the kettle bell by its horns, pulling the bottom of the bell into your lower sternum.
Draw your shoulder blades together and down (“proud chest”) and cast your eyes on a spot on the floor approximately 15 feet in front of you. When you feel a stretch in your hamstrings, extend your hips and squeeze your glutes, tucking your tailbone under as you lock out.
Stand with feet between hip and shoulder-width apart and hold the kettle bell by its horns upside down—the bell should face up. Begin moving the kettle bell around your head, being careful to maintain your posture and not bend your torso in any direction.
Set up as you did for the shoulder halo but hold the kettle bell by the handle at arm’s length and make circles around your hips.
