another place for rantings and ravings of kettlebells, sandbags, odd object lifting & old school strength from a stoopid boy.

add.

add.

medium day today, moderate presses, pulls & swings.
added pull-ups to this movement. strict, head above the bar, with no swing or kip. more challenging by wrapping a towel around the bar.
minimal rest between sets.

MOVEMENT
1a) kettlebell clean & presses @ 53# - 5 ladders x 5 rungs
1b) mixed grip thick bar pull-ups - 5 ladders x 3 rungs

2) kettlebell one-handed swings @ 35# - descending ladder
50l/50r
40l/40r
30l/30r
20l/20r
10l/10r

300 swinging reps altogether. one of my goals is to minimize hand switches.
the thick bar pull-ups & one-handed swings really taxed my grip endurance.

Nice session, daniel!
Like the KB swing ladder; looks tiring. (good!)

Still enjoying the simplicity and balance of your site. I really meant it when I said it was a pleasant experience to visit...

Pull-ups rock. Glad you don't kip up on them.

Stay strong,
Fred

pull-ups, definitely one of my favorite bodyweight exercises. mixed grips for more fun.
