That's a whole lot of repetitions, Tracy. With a 12kg and switching every 10 reps, I bet you could go 5-10+ minutes without putting the bell down.

Tracy everyones high volume KB workouts inspired me today. Mine don't look like yours or Dustins but I did 20x10 2 hand swings with the bulldog today. As hard and high as I could each rep. FaREEEKIN hard.

Tracy said...

Charley, When I did the SSST w/12kg, (10 min.) I never put it down. So, I'm not following you.

Are you suggesting a slower pace (20 reps/1 min.?)to build some strength? It is much harder ro hold at the top.

I'm pretty sure I could not go the whole 10 min. w/16kg, for sure not without putting it down.

Tracy said...

Royce, Wow! 10 sets..of 20? I love 2 hand swings!

Charley Allen said...

You understand me perfectly - I should have read your SSST post closer - that is doubly impressive that you did not put the bell down during the 10 minutes.

A slower pace might be "fun" for a change of pace.

Your muscular endurance is something for us all to shoot for.

Royce said...

I wish ten sets of 20!
20 sets of 10.

Royce said...

Lots of rest in between too :-)

Nice! Those are some high reps using the 20kg. Looks like your hip power is super strong these days. Have you tried snatching the 20kg yet?? I bet you could do it!



Tracy said...

Charley, Maybe I'll work with the 12kg this weekend, doing 10 min. sets at a slower pace (16-20 per min.). It would be "fun"!

I need to sit down and organize my training, and where I'm going with it. I will test the 10 min. snatch w/ 16kg soon to get a baseline, and then test the SSST w/12kg in a couple of months again.

I like the new look of your blog by the way.

Lauren, What I can do and what I should do are 2 different things at my age!

I just started working with the 16kg and I really want to get much stronger before messing around with anything heavier. It is hard for me though to not want to continually "test" myself.
