I am new to the S&S program and have read the book and am a week into the program. I am completely out of shape and haven't worked out regularly in a number of years. The last time I consistently worked out I was following the Enter the Kettlebell program. I am currently using a 25lb bell for both swings and get-ups but I am planning on moving up to a 35lb bell for swings next week. My question is in regards to moving from 5 to 10 sets of swings. Should I move up to 10 sets now and and then wait until I can do all 10 sets in 5 minutes with the 25lb and then move up to the 35lb? Or should I move up to the larger bell and then work on adding sets within the 5 minute window until I am able to do 10 sets? Also I was wondering when to move up in weight on the get-up? I know my shoulder is not ready yet but I was just wondering if there was a metric for measuring when you are ready to move up?
