Choose The Right Weight For Persian Meels

Choose The Right Weight For Persian Meels

Persian Meel Weight Guide:

Beginner: 2-3kg each

Intermediate: 3kg-6kg each

Advanced: 7kg - 9kg+ each

Note: Adult Women and youth are recommended to start with 2kg per club however those that exercise regularly, are athletic and do strength training might find 3-4kg each to be a good starting weight.

Traditionally in the Zurkhaneh beginner adults start with a 3kg each set and youth start with a 2kg each set. Once they can do 50 sets (25 per side) with proper form then they increase the weight by 1-2kg per club. However even advanced practioners continue to always use a lighter set for mobility focused flow techniques while the heavier set is for strength.
