Work to “True” failure (loss of physical positioning) not “Relative” failure (loss of mental endurance).
”Short swing” simply denotes a heavy, short-range kettlebell swing with the intent of safely driving as much weight as structurally possible to just below chin height.
Weights on all movements today are self-scaled and challenging- Put in what you expect to get out, and adjust by round as needed.
Stand strong and organized- tension helps build strength, provided we stay engaged in the process.
Keep a strong, steady pace, attempt no rest, and accept no positional compromise.
Organization of movement, power, timing, and dexterity all play an equal part in the safe and heavy completion of either lift chosen today.
The mindset must be addressed and in place before the physical skillset is practiced.
Today, weight is a distant second to position and execution- if designated weight detracts from near-perfect execution, adjust at least one interval down and continue.
Move and breathe deliberately, and attempt no rest outside of the designated durations.
Transition seamlessly, move deliberately and take no rest.
Fluidity increases efficiency, and both open the door to progress; Clunky is very seldom progressive.
Switch arms as needed/ desired in kettlebell swing, and adjust weight immediately if power drops or position breaks.
