My next purchase with be a 32 kg. The "mistake" most people make in their kettlebell training is using very light weight. Most people, though, need to use light weight because they haven't been trained in the proper movements for real kettlebell training and will get hurt if they use heavy weight.
So you're doing actual weight training with it? Interesting. I only use them to make things harder (adding weight, but not really weight lifting). Like I might get in a crunch position with a 12-15 pounder in my hands and touch the ground on either side of me back and forth or something. Imagining doing something like that with the kind of weight you're talking about makes me think I'd wind up in traction.
I do want to get something I can strap to my back to make pushups harder, though. The 45 pound weight I've been using from time to time is about to turn six, and he keeps getting heavier and heavier. I can't keep up.
