Insanely Heavy Kettlebell Complexes!

No clever quips or words of wisdom here, just some good old fashioned heavy lifting.

Heavy Single Leg Deadlifts

Good example of how you can load up a single leg deadlift to really emphasize balance and coordination while still moving some serious weight.

Training this week:

Lots of pressing and One arm chin negatives (and positives with pinky assistance)--elbow is feeling OK, but not perfect.

Wednesday I hit 5 singles pressing the 48kg bell and it was the most solid I have ever felt.

Thursday I did a bunch of tumbling and sprints at a field (front handsprings, backflips, cartweels, etc)

Today was double pressing and Pistols with more pullups.
Double 40's for sets of 3
Pullups @ 40lbs for sets of 6

Pistols for sets of 15 unweighted.
Finished with battling rope.

CK-FMS next week so training will be sporadic from wed-sun.

Old Time Feat of Strength: 2 hands anyhow

I really enjoyed this lift. I think that I'll actually try practicing it more regularly. The funny part is that to improve on this lift, I'm going to need to do some more curls. I tried with the 40kg kettlebell and couldn't curl the damn thing! I've been working with the program that I outlined in the (All Over) Strong DVD with some minor modifications (which is fine, by the way, just use common sense), and I feel strong, explosive, and athletic. I've been doing barefoot sprinting and agility work on the off days and I am hoping to get down to a 4.4 40-yard dash again soon.
More to come.
