|Color coded medicine balls not only look great but they're easy to id, too.|
So having enough appropriately sized medicine balls and kettlebells on hand will open up a ton of options for you in programming for all levels of athletes.
So, armed with all that info, how do you choose what sizes are best to invest in?
Gear Tip #1: When Starting Your Facility - Get RX'd Plus Two or Three. When programming, having two sizes below your RX'd weights available gives the Beginner and Intermediate Level athletes the option to grab something other than RX'd. If you've got 32kg/24kg Kettlebell Swings up on the whiteboard, having those plus 16kg and 8kg as options will keep everyone moving, especially if you've programmed a RFT [Rounds for Time] WOD that everyone needs to complete. And with those options, you can provide a challenge for all levels of athletes with only four to five sizes of kettlebells. The same can be said for the Medicine Ball. If you are considering a workout with 20lb/14lb Overhead Squats, then having 16lb and 10lb Medicine Balls available keeps those that aren't ready for as RX'd challenged but not frustrated.
