What is a good way to estimate the kettlebell weight I should use?

  • I am not sure how using kettlebells compares to using freeweights. I don't want to buy too heavy, buy I don't want to buy too light either.

    You'll want to go lighter on kettle-bells versus free-weights given the physics of the center of mass versus the handle. Generally (for men ) a 35-50 lbs kettleful is good for leg driven exercises while a 15-25 lbs is good for upper-body.
