Re: Kettlebell and Medicine ball sizes

Hey,

My husband is about your size-- 6'5" and 235 lbs and decently strong, but nothing spectacular for his size (BW bench, 300 DL, 250 BS). He uses the 24kg kettlebell for most of his workouts (though we are mostly doing swings). He likes the 32kg kettlebell for "strengthier" stuff. You might want a 16kg kettlebell to learn technique and for single arm cleans and such, but I would reccomend against going any lighter than 16kg. My husband (and I'm assuming you) can muscle 30lbs around without getting the benefits of the exercises.

Them's my two cents for what they're worth.

Stephen-

nothing broken?

don't settle for less than the 24kg.

Seriously. You're not going to learn how to do cleans, jerks and snatches with a weight that you could pinky curl.

Shipping for 9 kg, 12 kg, & 16 kg cost $14.95 to ship. Other sizes ship UPS and run around $30 to $40.
