I think the general theme is that you should be lifting heavier (this is of course relative to your current ability and a range of other factors) and less frequently.
I'm sticking with the 10lbs. I will move up when I'm ready. Thanks for your concern.
I actually wasn't suggesting you move up weight at all. That was the other guy.
10 lbs is very light for a KB. You won't feel it on anything save for a Turkish get-up or some sick 100x100 of the overhead snatches. However, it is a good weight for you to learn the moves without hurting yourself.
Normally, when you train with KBs, just like with dumbbells and bars and anything else, you need a range of weights for any lift to find the range where the challenge is there, but the hurt is not.
3x a week is a good start for KB, try to see if your local library has a book called Kettlebell Training for Athlets, it is by far the best KB book I have seen.
