    I’ve never used a kettle bell before but notice it being used quite a bit in your workout tips. What weight is a good average weight to use for most of your exercises for women? I’m 5’8″ and not in great shape, not too strong (about 30lbs overweight) – if that makes any difference.

      Hi Dana
      I am same height and while I used to have good strength I have lost a lot of it. I’m doing kettlebell ab workouts with a mix of 4kg Dumbbells and 6 kg kettlebell. When it comes to standing workouts I’m using an 8 & 10kg bell, and working up to using a 16.. I just do fewer reps with the 10 and 16. If I were starting out I’d buy a few around the 6-8 range and then just workout with them while I can, and when you get strong enough then go for something bigger. Good luck! Mandy
