    A kg is approx. twice the value of a lb.

    Once a month, I'll update with weekly progress.

    Hi
    My first kettle bell was 5kg and I found it much too heavy by the end of a 45 mins class. I now have a 3kg which feels a bit light at the start of the class but weighs a tonne by the end!!!

    woo!
    went to a proper class yesterday, the instructor got me started on an 8kg straight away (not the 4 or 6!) and the class was an hour long. was an doable weight, parts felt really easy with that size.
    might pick up a 10 and an 8 next time...

    That's what I tend to do now, so if it's 20 snatches with each hand I have an 8kg in both hands and attempt 40 snatches with both hands at once, as I found parts were too easy after a while x but some stuff like shoulder presses I still use just one at a time for
