Always 2-handed first
After I get used to the weight, I introduce 1 handed swings.
Sup Al,Can you expand on this? What did your longer term progression look like? How many months?
I started S&S on October last year.
Never did kettlebells before in my life.
First month I did swings with 16kg to get used to the movement.
The next 7 months I did swings with 24kg with long rests and taking it very easy. I was able to improve my technique and the swings got easier, but everytime I tried the 5 minute test I couldn't make it. I think 5:47 was my personal best.
First few months I was doing S&S 3 times a week and then lately increased it to 4 times a week.
I suspect that had I done S&S 6-7 times a week I probably would have reached the 5 minute mark with the 24kg easily.
Currently I'm doing 5x10 swings with the 32kg, taking it easy. Will add more sets once it feels comfortable enough to do it.
