Monday, 12/23/13
1. squat: 125x5, 145x5, 160x10
2. long cycle: 12kg x 20/2:00, 16kg x 18/2:00, 20kg x 16/2:00

4a. GHR: 3x8

5. 2-arm swings: 48kg / 44kg / 40kg / 36kg / 32kg x 10 reps each weight

Sunday, 12/22/13
decided to screw around with an extra workout and try this Sinister Strength stuff… Never trained Turkish Get-Ups before so just wanted to see what this workout feels like.

1. 1-arm kettlebell swings (10 ea. arm on the minute, rest the remainder of the minute): 24kg x 10+10 / 5:00
2. Turkish Get-Ups (1 ea. minute for 10:00, 5 right and 5 left): 24kg x 5+5 (10:00)

This was ok, nothing crazy though. I nice “off day” extra workout. Shoulders felt good after TGUs. I could see how working up to the 44kg would be challenging.

Friday, 12/20/13
1. press: 75x3, 85x3, 95x6
*super setted dead hang pull-ups x 2 reps ea. set and finished with a set of 5 = 17 reps total
2a. close grip bench press: 95x10 / 3
2b. barbell row: 95x10 / 3
3. barbell curl: 65x10 / 3
4. kettlebell snatch: 16kg x 10/8/6/4/2 ea. arm

Hey man, good to see you're still around the forum! I know you're very knowledgeable and use a lot of volume and dynamic exercises, so I don't suppose you could help me out.
Are One armed dumbbell deadlifts any good? I was thinking of working them in on back days as il be able to fit more on a single dumbbell. Thanks in advance mate :)

Hey man, sorry for the delay! First week of the year is busy in the gym biz!

I think 1-arm deadlifts are great, as long as the serve a purpose for you. Are you talking about deadlifting the dumbbell centered between your legs? Or on the side, as in a "suit case style" deadlift? The suit case style is fantastic for building torso strength and stability.

I've been really lazy about posting training but I've been hitting all planned sessions. Today I start my 8 week contest prep cycle for the Florida State Kettlebell Sport Championship. Not sure if I'll be lifting 20kg bells or 24kg bells in the long cycle. I plan to train mostly with the 24kgs. My goal is 57-60 reps in 10:00 (in competition we are allowed 10:00 to do as many reps as possible with the kettlebells be we cannot set the bells down). My event is the long cycle, which is the clean & jerk of 2 kettlebells. My current records are 67 reps with 20kg bells in competition and 72 reps with 20kg bells in training.

8 Week Training Cycle for FL KB Meet

Monday 2/10/14
1. long cycle: 24kg x 3/0:30; 24kg x 6/1:00; 24kg x 9/1:30; 24kg x 12/2:00
2. squat: 145x3, 170x3, 190x3
3. speed deadlift w/chains: 155x2 / 5
4. weighted ab bench: 25x25,20,15,10
*finished with Indian club swinging and some stretching.

In case you're interested in the event I compete in, here is a video of me doing 82 reps in 10:00 with the 16kg bells last summer as part of the Ice Chamber gym's International Friendship Meet.
