The weight depends on the exercises being done. The lower-body muscles are more powerful than the upper-body muscles. You can therefore use heavier weights for your squats and lunges (from 1.5kg).
Why use a medicine ball?
The medicine ball is a versatile accessory used in lots of exercises to intensify your workout
It's an alternative to dumbbells for all exercises, with both hands needed for good grip (e.g. throw-downs and floor taps, or more static exercises such as sitting twists)
You can also use its round shape to work your coordination, balance and core by doing mountain climbers with your hands on top of it
