Competition Kettlebell Color Coding:

Kettlebell Color Coding

Color coding your kettlebells can help with group classes and allow the instructor to give clear direction when it comes to weight usage. It is much easier to tell a newbie to go grab a blue kettlebell than it is to tell them to grab a 12 kg one. I’ve added bands to all of my kettlebells to help with ease of use and this is as much for me, as it is for the rest of the internet. I don’t really dig the full painted coloured competition kettlebells, I’m a bit more monochromatic, and a prefer mostly black bells with a touch of colour.

I used electrical tape around the bottom of the handles to signify which weight it is. Here is the color coding for kettlebells. I didn’t make this up, it is an internationally agreed upon Kettlebell competition treaty deal.

 

  • 8 kg / 17.6 lbs – Pink
  • 12 kg / 26.4 lbs – Blue
  • 16 kg / 35.2 lbs – Yellow
  • 20 kg / 44.0 lbs – Purple
  • 24 kg / 52.8 lbs – Green
  • 28 kg / 61.6 lbs – Orange
  • 32 kg / 70.4 lbs – Red
  • 36 kg / 79.2 lbs – Grey
  • 40 kg / 88.0 lbs – White
  • 44 kg / 96.8 lbs – Silver
  • 48 kg / 105.6 lbs – Black
