    Beginner Question

    Hi was hoping someone could help. I've ordered kettleworx and just waiting for it to be delivered (cant wait!!) but I'm a bit unsure of what size weight to start with. I picked up the 5kg in tesco and it seemed quite heavy to me. I really have no strength at all so was looking for a bit of advice. Thanks in advance

    Hi Claire, if you ordered the full Kettleworx set it comes with a 5lb bell (approx 2.5kg). This will get you going while you get used to the moves and build up to using the 5kg bell.
    I started with the 5lb Kettleworx bell then went for a 5kg bell from TESCO. The 5kg bell felt HEAVY!! and I was swapping between both during workouts. Eventually I got to 7.5 and 10kg bells!
    Been using 5 and 7.5kg bells of recent though as I had several weeks off. Strength soon builds though; enjoy!

    Hi Claire,
    5kg seems really heavy i know, when i took my first swing i thought i was going to fall over backwards but im getting used to it now. Ive read that for women its the perfect weight to start off with and then increase it after a few months.
    Im doing KW aswell and i think its fantastic, on my first week and i can feel a difference, Ryans awesome

    All the best and im here to support

    Hi Aurora

    I'm still waiting on my DVDs being delivered (hoping for today!). I read somewhere that 5kg is best for females to start with too but really don't think I could. Think I'm going to start with either a 2kg or 3kg then see how quickly I can move up.

    Thanks for replying, need all the help I can get!

    Hiya , i guess its best to go with what your most comfortable with and you can always build up from there.

    good morning all!

    i do kettlebell 3/4 times a week in my gym with my crazy instructor (she is just amazing) for 3 years now and im using both 4 kg and 6 kg (it depends on the exercise) and it is not easy at all!
    I think that as starter 2/3 kg is good

    I wish I could move to a 8kg, but it is too heavy!

    you could give it a try... once a week is not that much actually, but if the trainer is good it's better than nothing!
    moreover you can learn new exercises and then you can do them at home
