I have two 10# Kettlebells that I use. I can put both of them together and use them as one 20# weight when I want so they work fine for me. I'm 63.

I don't do it as often as I should so I'm only using 10 pounders :( I also don't have the money at the moment to buy any more, but soon!

Sometimes the way I write can come across the wrong way. I apologize if I offend anyone. I also have a habit of writing LOOOOOOOONG posts. Again, my apologies.

I have short muscle groups so I use lighter weights with more reps.... I build muscle mass faster (or you see the results quicker). If I use over ten pounds consistently I begin to develop man arms. I use 5lbs and aim for 15 to 20 reps, 3 circuits. It all depends on your body type and what results you want.... good rule of thumb more weight less reps (this is for more mass)less weight more reps (this is for definition)

Depends on what muscle group I'm working.
I do 20 lbs for biceps, 15 lbs for triceps, 30 lbs for chest press, 30 lbs for bent over rows, 20 lbs overhead press.
I do 60 lbs for lunges and the rest of my lower I do around 80-120 lbs depending on the exercise.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. If you don't want to get bulky, lift heavy!

I can bench Nicole Richie, eat more than she does in a day before noon, I have a good 20 lbs on her but could still wear her pants.
