Don't weight Lift
Weightlifting- How much weight do you lift?
Hey all, just curious about how many of you weight lift and more importantly how much you lift. I would like to see the faster one can spin the more they weights they do. Personally, I do 5kg and spin at a top speed of 11,175- I know it's not much but it's a start...
error: below or equal to 5k

Hi ARZG ,
I don't lift any weights though i think they will help u alot with powerballing
I do not understand this question.
I know what weights are and I know what lifting is, but what kind of weight lifting are you referring to exactly? Do you mean dumbells?
I did wonder but the answers given show that it must be dumbell because your not gonna barbell below 5kgs, 6-16kgs etc....
17-39kg must be very few reps and looking for ultimum muscle mass...
6-16kg is your average lifting weight, many reps for teens through to adults. doing over 40kg is just sick theres 50kg dumbell's at my gym and just lifting it off the rack is a start let alone ONE arm pull ups
and lifting weights and powerballing wont work in sync, like saying to a bodybuilder "Here's a powerball, spin it as fast as you can" garanteed he wont get it over 12k first time.
And lifting shopping bags is like:
DEAD LIFT (for REPS)
it is easier to carry mass amounts of weight this way as you can carry weight on leg muscles shoulders arms peck etc...
With dumbells, your doing curls (bicep or tricep) which is alot harder...

I dont lift weights but the last time I Weight myself with shopping bags, according to my weight it was 48kg's and with the bags I weight near 80kg's...
almost half of my body weight
lol well there are people who can do 50k 1 arm pull up which is very difficult!! but not that it will help with power balling- although I still don't understand why someone who has great muscle mass can't power a power ball past 12k first time...

Powerball requires 2 skills to master the technique.
Firstly you need strength to power the powerball to reach high revs...
But this is nothing with out co-ordination, being able to spin the powerball smoothly, clearly without clunking the ball.
So yes, if you gave a body-builder a powerball and gave him a month or so to get a record...then the muscle mass to powerball speed might work in sync, as soon as he/she would get hang of it...like anything it takes good practice....
When you say lift weight d'you mean rowing, pressing, curling, kickbacks...?
Because you can use a LOT more weight rowing than you can on kickbacks!
Both rowing and pressing I'll use more than 40kg per arm but not curling and kickbacks.
I lifted two 90lb crates off the back of a lorry yesterday.
I managed a whopping overloaded spoon full of Heinz baked beans in a tablespoon, and managed to lift it into my mouth....did this process over 15 times !!!! muscular endurance
