      Thank you for your comment. The weight of the ball depends on the size and strength of the individual person. Find a ball weight that allows you to comfortably and safely perform this exercise. Whenever in doubt, use lighter the weight. And for this particular exercise, you should focus on generating more speed in your movement, so definitely default to a light enough ball that allows you to generate some speed in the movement.
