If for example your main goal is to add muscle or tone to your body then understanding the correct amount of reps for achieving that is important. Exercises should last around 45 seconds resulting in a rush of blood to the muscles and often a swollen or pumped feeling.

Double Kettle bell Clean and Press for Hypertrophy When you perform repetitions over 15 you start to enter the endurance phase and will often experience that burning feeling in your muscles. Higher reps improve your ability to keep going under stress and will raise your heart rate for longer.

Many beginners should start with endurance based exercises as they often have lower chances of injury although they do encourage bad repetitive form if not done correctly. Women often avoid lifting heavier kettle bells because of a fear of adding too much muscle or bulking up, this is a big mistake.

Women lack quantities of the hormone testosterone to add large amounts of muscle but lifting heavier weights will greatly improve aesthetics and increase fat burning potential. The challenge for any kettle bell lifter is selecting the correct weight for your goals, this will take a few workouts to get right.

The heavier you lift the longer your rest periods should be to enable full recovery before the next set. Finding the right balance between how hard you exercise and thus how much rest you should take both during sets and also after workouts is a very personal choice.

For example, younger adults with good nutrition and genes will recover much quicker than older overweight individuals. As a general guide taking 1 days rest after every workout is a good place to start.

Once you understand your goals you can start performing the various kettle bell exercises within your chosen rep range whether endurance, strength or hypertrophy. It will take some time to choose the correct kettle bell weight to ensure you are not lifting too light or too heavy for your chosen rep range.

Recently I listened to Pavel Tsatsouline podcast with Tim Ferris's. I was wondering if that rule is across the board, in bench, squat, kettle bell swings, push ups, pull ups, lunges, abdominal exercises, etc.

Recently I listened to Pavel Tsatsouline podcast with Tim Ferris's. I was wondering if that rule is across the board, in bench, squat, kettle bell swings, push ups, pull ups, lunges, abdominal exercises, etc.

For example, if your focus is strength rather than strength-endurance, then you would choose a more difficult push up variation like feet elevated or explosive or diamond rather than a normal one for those sets, building up slowly to a one arm push up. Nine one arm push ups in sets of three would be a legit workout. Some programs for barbell like power to the people do 2×5 but 4-5 times a week.

For swings, you might do sets of 7-10 with a talk test between them see Simple and Sinister 2 and then keep going for as long as you can maintain quality, not till you are tired and sloppy in form. The principle is to stay fresh, high quality, rest periods, frequent workouts, and quit before your form becomes sloppy.

I'll go a bit further than HQ. Hung and say that if one wants to develop power specifically and optimally then ten reps or seven is far too much. Take a look at athletics where the field depends on maximal power output.

A man goes and throws a javelin once, chats for ten minutes, repeats it, keeps at it for an hour, has a great training session. Of course, there's nothing wrong with doing 10×10 sets of swings, they work great for multiple qualities, but I wouldn't say that it's the best way to develop power.

Personally, I think accessory exercises can also play with the 3-5 * 3-5 role. They can be per iodized just the same as the main exercises of a program, and some very prominent strength athletes have done so with great success.

I can see merit for high reps if there are some muscle groups that are very much slow twitch dominant. I have been told that some abdominal muscles are such, for example, likely calves as well, etc, but I don't know enough about this field to make any assumptions.

I can see merit for high reps if there are some muscle groups that are very much slow twitch dominant. I have been told that some abdominal muscles are such, for example, likely calves as well, etc, but I don't know enough about this field to make any assumptions.

You make a good point that we might need words for manpower vs power-endurance vs long slow distance, but if the weight is too heavy, you won't get the velocity to develop the power. You will get a fast grind I read in an article that 1/3 body weight is optimal for power training of swings.

1 – 5 Reps Per Maximum Strength, Power and Speed Training Set need to be performed in this Repetition Range. Since the swing employs a stretch reflex action, more than 1 Repetition is needed.

Heavy kettle bell swings could be the best damn posterior chain exercise you're not doing, possibly even better than dead lifts! Many exercise scientists argue against using bands to train punches or weighted balls or bats in baseball for this reason.

Technique Training And Development For Maximum Strength This is best accomplished by performing single reps with load of 85% plus of a 1 Repetition Max in the traditional movements; Squats, Bench Press, etc. 1 – 5 Reps Per Maximum Strength, Power and Speed Training Set need to be performed in this Repetition Range.

Since the swing employs a stretch reflex action, more than 1 Repetition is needed. Part of the issue is that a fairly a heavy Kettle bell is required to maximize Power in a KettlebellSwing ; between one-third to 100% of an individuals body weight.

“...there's nothing wrong with doing 10×10 sets of swings, they work great for multiple qualities, but I wouldn't say that it's the best way to develop power. “ The same Reps, Sets and Rest Periods are used for Maximum Strength Training, Power and Speed.

Traditional Exercises (Squat, Bench, etc) 48 to 62% plus of 1 Repetition Max d) Endurance Training alone increased aerobic capacity at the expense of Speed, Power and Maximum Strength; all three drop like a rock during a Hypertrophy only phase.

It seems that higher volume and hypertrophy periods helps provide a foundation to go to higher levels of strength at lower rep ranges in more focused periods. As Pavel has stated a couple of times, two-week cycles seem to be optimal.

In other words, 1-3 reps are optimal for a given period but remaining heavy for too long will not outperform proper cycling I would think. I followed it a while back and it worked well until later in the program I couldn't handle the pressing intensity probably due to poor form at the time.

It seems that higher volume and hypertrophy periods helps provide a foundation to go to higher levels of strength at lower rep ranges in more focused periods. Below is some information on training based on your Euro Type and my Cliff Notes on each.

Thibaudeau's video presentation, as well as the Cliff Note are on the above listed site. As Pavel has stated a couple of times, two-week cycles seem to be optimal.

With program like the Westside Powerlifting Max Effort Method usually mean the after that one week, a new Periodization Training Cycle need to be implemented. That means dramatically decreasing the load in exercise or changing exercise, making them light an easy, then each week progressively increasing the load until you hit you max week.

In other words, 1-3 reps are optimal for a given period but remaining heavy for too long will not outperform proper cycling I would think. Over training is often an issue with ambition individual who won't back off.

It occurs when you push the limit or close to it in the final week of a Periodization Training Program. Overreaching is an effective method of increasing strength and/or size.

It corrects body imbalances; builds strength, endurance, stability, and mobility; and is user-friendly. Committing to a daily exercise program builds mental toughness.

The kettlebellswing engages large muscle groups and small stabilizers. Kettle bell swings strengthen the entire posterior chain (core, lower back, glutes, hamstring), mid-back, upper-back, forearms, lats, and shoulders.

KBS don’t require lots of gear nor space to perform. A more recent 2014 study found that longer kettle bell training provides the same aerobic benefits as treadmill walking.

Especially at the lower rep ranges, KBS activate all kinds of lower-body muscles in the posterior chain affectionately known as the “power zone”. Unlike traditional barbell and dumbbell training, kettle bells don’t subject the body to moments of extreme pressure and load.

Kettle bell swings are one of the few exercises that jack up my heart rate like running without straining my joints. Related to strengthening the cardiovascular system, kettle bell swings build muscular endurance.

Always making sure your shoulders stay above the level of your hips, “hike pass” the kettle bell through your knees by contracting your lats. When you push your hips back keeping your butt high and your shins vertical, you are hinging.

This is good because most people today are hip flexor and quad dominant (your anterior muscles), so learning how to load and use your posterior chain creates a natural balance between front and back that will help in preventing knee and hip issues. Imagine that you are growing roots through your feet and grab the ground with your entire foot.

Because they are a full-body movement, kettle bell swings will drive your heart and breathing rate sky-high, which makes them a beneficial and challenging cardiovascular exercise. Better posture Kettle bell swings are one of the best exercises for undoing the effects of prolonged sitting.

Swings work your posterior chain, which are the muscles responsible for holding you upright against the pull of gravity. In many instances, this will also eliminate the back pain often caused by poor posture.

But, if you master a proper kettlebellswing, you can enjoy all the benefits this exercise has to offer while avoiding all the risks. Standing with your feet about shoulder-width apart, pull your shoulders down and back, and brace your abs.

Focus on your hip drive to pop the kettle bell upwards, not your arms. Use your lats and abs to stop the weight swinging upward and then let the kettle bell fall back down.

However, it’s all too easy to inadvertently shorten your rep range by not swinging the weight high enough, i.e., below shoulder-height. Swinging the weight up until the arms are vertical ensures that each rep is the same, making them easier to judge and quantify.

However, raising the weight so high will increase stress on the lower back, which could lead to injury. The increased range of movement also means you won’t be able to lift as much weight.

If I may venture an idea, do simply leave your kettle bell in a highest area of traffic in your house, say, the kitchen, and each time you encounter the cumbrous thing, work a set of swings to whatever number delights you. For an added bonus knock a set or two off right before you feed and right after, too, to ensure whatever gourd you take aboard is shuttled off preferentially to the hungry muscle flesh and not promptly converted and deposited where it might come off as unappealing.

I said the program is 300 kettle bell swings a day, and that premise, I believe, is plain enough to avoid any further elaborations. This 300 swings a day protocol is simply a splash of hot sauce, which can decorate nearly any dish and do it one better.
