TORPEDO WEIGHT GUIDE

TORPEDO
WEIGHT GUIDE

Torpedos come in weights ranging from 10-50lbs, in 5 pound increments. Choose a weight based on your fitness level and goals. If you’re completely unsure of what to weight to purchase and can get your hands on a traditional dumbbell, the ability to press the weight up overhead with one hand using only your shoulder is a great way to gauge what weight range you will fall into. Remember that you’ll be getting stronger as the Challenge progresses so leave yourself some room to grow!

BEGINNER

MALE

10-25 LB

FEMALE

10-20 LB

I am entirely new to exercise and have little to no experience with movements like swings, presses, and squats. I would consider myself out of shape/overweight and am looking to make a big life change.

INTERMEDIATE

MALE

25-35 LB

FEMALE

20-35 LB

I am not new to exercise but would not consider myself an expert at swings, presses, and squats. Carrying grocery bags or helping a friend move is no big deal for me. I would consider myself in decent shape and healthy.

ADVANCED

MALE

40-50 LB

FEMALE

35-50 LB

I currently exercise regularly. I have a background in sports or fitness and am comfortable with high intensity exercise and movements such as swings, presses, and squats. I would consider myself to be in good shape and fit.

PRE-EXISTING INJURIES

OR HEALTH ISSUES

MALE

15-25 LB

FEMALE

10-20 LB

I am doing the challenge to create consistent habits with exercise. I have preexisting injuries and/or health issues which make loading unimportant. The challenge is about feeling alive and making progress.
