All this mess about the 1000 kettlebell swings.
Try it... Don't try it?
1000 swings with the 24kg kettlebell is a lot of swings. (Nice work Tracy) I started out with 500 in 20 minutes, I'll increase that as I go along, but it's taxing on the grip. I must admit my heart rate barely made it to 145 and I try to get it up to 175-180 once or twice a week during conditioning workouts. From this standpoint I was disappointed. I did notice that I started to tense up in my lower back, same problems as before after injury. Still working with my chiropractor, and have seen some very good feedback.
I think I can pull it off in under 40 minutes.
