I started a new swing/strength cycle this morning, only this one is only 3 weeks long. It will ramp up quickly and aggressively and then end 7-10 days before my August 17th Kettlebell Sport competition. It includes double 16kg swings (sets of 10), and it also includes minute long swing sets with the single weight (40 reps w/16kg), but instead of the 32kg I'm using the 28kg because the workouts are starting at 30 minutes (instead of 22.5) and will increase at least another 6 - 10 minutes over the next two weeks. A 30-40 minute heavy workout is much more intense than a 22.5 minute workout...maybe. In this cycle there is more rest, so taking that into account it's not as extreme as it appears.
So, a short video of a new favorite of mine, "swing snatches", this time with doubles. 7 rep per 30 sec work to rest x 10.
I'll be back to post more about our heavy Thursday swing workouts, and the progress we are all making in preparation to the Orange Kettlebell Club Bay Area Championships!
