Torpedos come in weights ranging from 10-22.5 kg. 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 you train with us, so leave yourself some room to grow!

BEGINNER

Male: 10 - 12kg

Female: 10kg

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: 15 - 20kg 

Female: 12 - 15kg

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: 20 - 22kg

Female: 15 - 20kg

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 HELATH ISSUES

Male: 12 - 15kg 

Female: 10 - 12kg

I am ready to create consistent habits with exercise. I have pre-existing injuries and/or health issues. I’m training with Alchemy to feel alive and make progress.
