A question for kettlebell-ers!
I have a 5kg kettlebell (that's about 11 pounds). I can do 10 reps of 2 handed kettlebell swings in about 20 secs With the 5kg kettlebell. But I want to be able to do a 10 reps in 15 secs Only.
Shall I increase the weight to 7.5 kg (16.5 pounds) or shall I train more with 5kg kettlebell?
Honestly the 5 kg is not heavy enough I know , & it kinda pauses at the top of swing (don't know the reason why?) Maybe because the weight is light, but am still practicing!
Mmm....Id go with the higher weight... but really its the overall training routine tht u use tht will make the difference
Tbh i would focus more on completing good reps not so much on the time. Faster doesnt really mean better.
When I swing the 5kg kettlebell (her name is Enjy btw ...lol) it goes higher than my chest level so I think I got to go heavier.
The fraction of second that it take to go higher each rep might have an impact on the timing.
And yes I've been learning how to swing (2 hand swing)the proper way for a while now & I know I can't trade a good form with reps or timing or both. But honestly I want more...lol.
