Thursday 10 x 10! Reviewing one hand swings, and an optional progression before the "transfer swing"



Happy Thursday!

Today's 10 x 10 reviews the last swing combinations and it adds in more of the "five by five one hand swings" (5 R/ 5 L), with a bit of a "regression"!  Today I give you the option of practicing your one hand swings without a mid air transfer swing.  Instead you can practice one hand swings, setting the bell down, switching hands, and continue to practice your one hand swings on your other hand, until you feel comfortable and confident to switch from R to L in mid air!  This is commonly how I teach brand new students the one hand swing.

The Swing Quest workouts in January started to lead us into more and more one hand swings, and this 10 x 10 reviews them as we start to expand our skills and abilities of doing more one hand swings, AND our skill and ability to switch hands more often (transfer swing OR "hand to hand" swing)

Here is this morning's 10 x 10, so practice up because I have a real treat for you that I will post over the weekend.....

10 2 hd sw x 1 set
5 2 hd sw + 5 R one hand sw x 1 set
5 2 hd sw + 5 L one hand sw x 1 set
5/5 one hand swings

5 R one hd sw, put the bell down, switch to L, 5 L one hd swings

5/5 one hand swings x 1 set

5 R one hd sw, put the bell down, switch to L, 5 L one hd swings

5 R/ 5 L one hand swings x 2 sets

Whoops....that only adds up to 9 sets of 10!  Add in one more practice set of 5/5 to complete you 10 sets!  Sorry!

Anyway....I trust that you all will do what your motivation, time and energy will allow!  Whether it's 9 sets, 10 sets, 11 sets....or more!  Sometimes you may still need me to lead you through a 10 minute workout, while other times you are fine on your own!  And speaking about being on you own....

The next 10 x 10 blog post will include last weekend's 5 rounds of The Swing Quest in it's entirety (25 minutes) with a couple of surprises!  I hope to also post each round so you can chose how long you want to swing, and which swing combinations you want to work on.  So exciting!  Thank you all for your continued support and interest, but most of all for your wanting to take some action to be, feel, and look your absolute best!

Nice blog. I am also facing this problem. I am looking forward to it. After a hectic day kettlebell training is a hard way to go but it worth.
