    Hi,
    I've re-read @Pavel 's The Tension Day | StrongFirst article and decided to give it a try and introduce it into my trenings.
    Thus, here my first exercises I've chosen:
    • Double kettlebell static stomp deadlift
    • ‌Bottom-up kettlebell drills
    • ‌Hard style sit-up
    The guidelines are three sets of 1-3 reps for rep-count exercise and 5-10 seconds for holds.
    My question is are those exercise were chosen correctly, and can I perform those three sets throughout the day, for instance one in the morning, the second in the middle of a day, and the last one in the evening?

    IMO the exercise choices are good but the schedule is not.

    So, they should done in one single session?

    Yes - the idea of a single tension day per week is really a single tension session per week, IMO. You wouldn't want to revisit it, just do it, have it be your focus, and be done with it for a week.

    Personally, I would find myself holding back if I knew I had to perform another high-tension session later in the same day. Maybe it works for some people ...

    @Steve Freides, are there any other exercises that I could perform on my Tension day?
