Comment posted Buying your first kettlebell by Clement.

Hi! I’m a 19 year old male and I was introduced to and have been lifting weights for 3 years, mainly using Craig Ballantyne’s TT fat loss workouts. Only last year have I started training for strength. I now want to buy a kettlebell and use it for metabolic conditioning and strength and power gains but I’ve never used one before in a workout, though I’ve practised the technique before. Which weight/s should I buy and in what quantities?

Some information about me:
Bench press 3RM: 45kg
Pullup max: 7
Incline chest press: 3×8 reps@17.5kg
DB one-armed row: 3×12 reps@15kg
DB forward lunge: 3×6 reps@12.5kg in each hand
