Quick kg to lb Conversion

Brian Dick

Want to learn an easy lb to kg conversion? Try out the simple steps below:

kgs –> lbs

  1. Take the amount in kg and double it. Ex: 30kg kettlebell * 2 = 60
  2. Then, take your new number and take 10% of that number. Not a math whiz? Simply take the decimal point and move it to the left once. Ex: 60.0 * 10% = 6.00.
  3. Add this 10% figure to the doubled number. Ex: 30kg kettlebell * 2 = 6060 * 10% = 660 6 = 66lbs (give or take a tiny sum.)

lbs –> kgs

  1. Take the amount in lbs and divide by 2. 
  2. Find 10% of the new number.
  3. Take the 10% figure and subtract it from the doubled amount. Ex: 66lb kettlebell *(1/2) = 33 … 33 * 10% = 3.3 … 33 – 3.3 = 29.7kgs (or close to it)
