The CrossFit Weights Conversion Guide: Pounds to Kilograms

CrossFit, a fitness phenomenon that originated in the United States, has gained immense popularity across the globe. One of the unique aspects of CrossFit is its use of specific weights in its workouts. However, there’s a catch: while the original CrossFit standards are set in pounds (lbs), much of Europe and other parts of the world use kilograms (kg) for weight measurement. This can lead to confusion and inconvenience for athletes and trainers alike.

Understanding this need, we’ve created a handy conversion table for some of the most commonly used weights in CrossFit workouts. Whether you’re doing wall balls, deadlifts, or snatches, this table will help you quickly convert pounds to kilograms, ensuring you’re lifting the right weight for your workout.
