Fetch: according to Wikipedia (and merrily skipping past the ⚠️"this page has multiple issues"⚠️messages) it's commonly 20m: en.wikipedia.org

Funny enough, for entirely different reasons that having nothing whatsoever to having reading about various marathon-in-your-back-garden stories, I've just measured mine.

From the side gate to the steps at the end is... 20 metres!

Hmmm... 🤔

Hey
I have 2 light kettlebells and was wondering if I use wrist/ankle weights on my arms (from a dim and distant past!) with the kettlebells is that helping or hindering?
Would like to increase the weight but not keen on buying more but also don't want to do any damage either!

oh and is low weight high reps just as good as high weight low reps?
Cos if increasing the reps and sets is just as good I might just do that! LOL

Low weight / high reps is a stamina circuit. High weight / low reps is a strength circuit. Which makes them different games really.

I don’t use the weights work for weight loss, Pix, so I don’t know about this aspect. For me, I have done weight training over the past 9 or 10 years or so purely for improving my muscle strength which has certainly helped improve my running. I stick with high reps with relatively low weights. Depending on the exercise I use dumbbells weighing between 3 and 10kgs. Three sets of reps, usually 12 to 15 reps.

Hope my waffling helps.

I was hoping that would be an answer given what I have 😂
