Slam balls just starting out? I'd go 20lb...
Wall ball for men is 20lb, but maybe get a 20lb and 10lb
Kettlebells... again i'd get a range of 8kg, 16kg and 24kg and grow into it.
I went with a local supplier, but they sell online too WFS

Maybe just get the lighter stuff to start, then grab a few heavier items in a few months once you feel comfortable. best of luck man!
Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. A former greenskeeper, now, about to become the Masters champion. It looks like a mirac... It's in the hole! It's in the hole! It's in the hole!
