Hello, I'm a 61 kg, 5'8" male who is discovering I'm not nearly as strong as I'd like to be (or thought I was). Briefly, I'm new to strength training, having been a swimmer and surfer for years, but now landlocked and 40 years old, with a young family, I have been only doing military style calisthenics in my backyard for some time. My stamina is decent: I did Murph slick in 31 minutes (subbing 2000 m ERGs for the mile runs) on my first try. But after a golfer's elbow injury incurred while trying to repeat that performance weighted, I started looking for something else to do. I started kettlebell, and weight training in general a few months ago. I am being humbled. My question regards my overall body weight and my potential for progression into heavier kettle bells. Yesterday I tried the simple 100 swings, 5 TGU at a gym: I didn't time myself. Embarrassingly, the 16 KG for TGUs tired me, and I could only do the one-arm swings with a 24. I am keen, and looking to get a few bells of my own, but I am wondering, quite frankly, if my body weight will hold me back. Most guys I see in the gym seem to snatch a 24 no problem, and on the forums I see that 32 is not necessarily a big deal. But for me that would be over half my weight. I'm wondering if there's anyone out there who is around my weight who can tell me how their progression is has gone into heavier weights, and where they are currently. It goes without saying that I also welcome advice/narratives from women, as I am perhaps closer to some of their weight categories in body and performance. I see there are some very strong women doing KB.
