And the swinging is easy . . . until the last set
May 22, 2019
I’ve really enjoyed working up to doing 90-seconds of light kettlebell swings every 30- to 60-minutes—between 50-60 swings-per-set.
Each and every one was really nice. I could feel my heart ramping up, I could feel my body tensing more and more each set, and I would sit back down to sync my Atlas Wristband2 out of breath; however, I didn’t sweat during any of them. Perfect.
During and after what turned out to be the last set, at around 7:30PM, I knew I was done. Could I have pushed through and kept on going through to bedtime, every 30-60 minutes? Probably.
I didn’t because I’m still stress-testing myself to make sure I’m not all bonked the next day. Or not recovered. Or overworked.
Pavel always reminds us to leave gas in the tank, to make sure you come right up to “I’m so done” and not that much further—at least not during the everyday. Yes, in competitions and in strength testing, but not in daily training.
