I've played with high rep swings a bit recently. One thing I've found is that it's better to use a stopwatch than to count reps. I like 15 seconds on and 15 seconds off with a big kettlebell (32k) or one minute on, one minute off with a small-ish bell (20k). Personally, I find that if I go over a minute, my explosiveness and form begin to deteriorate a lot. A few minutes with the 16k every now and then is OK, but I wouldn't want to base my training around it as a regular thing...

I like medium rep swings. Smile Did 90 x 24kg in 3 minutes, last weekend, because I didn't have much time for a longer workout. For me, that's the big value of KBs in general -- if you only have 3-5 min, you can still get a valid workout done.

Since I've made some progress with rotator cuff issues I have been using a combination of the Convict Conditioning bodyweight workout and kettlebell swings. I have moved back onto the 24 from the 16 and have started trying to do as many swings as I can in 10 minutes. First go was 160, yesterday I managed 200. Nothing impressive but it's a start and it suits my goals at the moment.

I see this more as a physical test than a constant training system,like i said i was dicking around with my kettlebells and it was crap,i needed a singular focus and the high rep swing fits the bill for me.

Im going to hit 500 tonight (or die trying!),there is a huge mental component to this that needs to be appreciated as well,we are devoloping that dont quit atitude here.

Intervals are good as well but theres something about non stop effort that i prefer.

Fraze you going to try for more?

From mick coup

Everyone has a point where they 'want'
to stop, but that is generally nowhere
near the point where they 'need' to
stop. Through constantly progressing
training, the 'want' moves closer to the
'need', and the spin-off is that the
'need' is pushed further in the process.

Thought of this and high rep swings.

Well i just finished 500 reps with the 24kg,hand transfer every ten reps,time was 13 min 34 08.

I think i maybe mucked up a few reps,the door went and the missus walked by me and i lost focus,going back to doing it solo.ohhh matron!

The grip was going before my lungs/legs,i might progress slowly from know and let my grip adapt.

I didnt tear any my calluses but i have developed a nice blood blister.

Im now chugging some milk to recover,some magnesium before bed and ill be good to go.

How's that for a piece of fried gold? It's true our minds usually give out before our bodies.

I use every trick I can to get through the 'paralysis by numbers' barriers. Even little things like relaxing my facial muscles so I am not grimacing when it gets tough seem to help.
