    10,000 Kettlebell Swings Challenge

    T Nation | The 10,000 Swing Kettlebell Workout

    Aim of the game: 4-5 days per week. 2 days on, 1 day off, and repeat.

    Each session involves 5x of this:
    Set 1:  10 reps
    Set 2:  15 reps
    Set 3:  25 reps
    Set 4:  50 reps


    I am not gonna fuss over the weight of the kettlebell - heck, if you wanna just do unweighted squats - that's cool too.

    Anyone?

    Hi Cavegirl. Thanks for the reply. I had considered putting the thread in the KB section too, but put it here instead as KBs need a higher profile I feel. Would be great to do the 10,000 swings "challenge" together!

    I'm starting tomorrow.

    I'm going to stick to just the Goblet squat.

    10 Swings
    Goblet Squat 1 rep
    15 Swings
    Goblet Squat 2 reps
    25 Swings
    Goblet Squat 3 reps
    50 Swings
    Rest 30-60 seconds; repeat 4 more times.


    By the end of the workout, you'll have completed 500 swings and 30 goblet squats.
    If you want it enough you won't keep finding excuses to not do it.

    Sorry for my ignorance, but what's a goblet squat? I've only ever been to KB classes so haven't learned the names...!

    Also, I'll be (attempting) to use my 6kg.

    Can anyone tell me a bit on kettle bells. I am 63, not in great shape. Not bad though. What weight bell? Where to learn online. I have done masses of exercise and hand weights in the past so am aware of what I can do but have never tried this.
    Thanks in anticipation - I need something new to get my enthusiasm back!

    Hi Solange! Great to see you're interested in this.

    This is a pretty good video regarding the techniques of a Swing. How to Do Kettlebell Swings | Sleek/Strong With Rachel Cosgrove - YouTube

    And here's one of the many places where you can buy a kettlebell:

    Lonsdale | Lonsdale 3 Kg Kettle Bell | Fitness Equipment

    Three names I would strongly recommend you do a search on ar Pavel Tsatsouline, Paul Chek, and Soctt Sonnon. They are fountains of knowledge and of the 3, I think Scott Sonnon's style of teaching works best for me.

    It's hard to guage what would be a good size for you without meeting you, but I think the "small" would be good to start on. Some may argue that the weight is too light, but I would counter argue that it is not - for 500 reps per session, for someone who is starting out!

    Many thanks, I shall be looking all this up asap. 3 kg sounds light but then taking into account age and number of reps would probably be sensible! Even now I do build muscle easily so as I just want to tone I'll trust your judgement!! I chuck around two cans of beans at 400 grams each now and then doing squats and lunges but trouble is I don't keep it up. My home gym (small but functional) is now the junk room. I need a big turnout and get it up and running again as it has a BIG mirror so no escaping the bitter truth . I am 5ft 7ins and strongly built bone wise but at the moment with a lard covering . I'll be back when I get a bell. Thanks for the inspiration

    I would go to JJBSports or somewhere who sells Kettlebells and try the different weights.I wouldn't go below 4kg to start with.You'll be surprised after a few swings how light a 4kg is.

    Don't buy the plastic ones as they are bulky.Go for cast iron ones.
    If you want it enough you won't keep finding excuses to not do it.
