1000 kettlebell swing challenge excepted

Well, it’s been a year since I put this one out (1,014 swings)  but finally one of you took up the challenge. Nick knocked out 1,120 swings using a 16kg bell in 50min. He actually completed the 1000 around the 45 min mark. The split was somewhat more aggressive then the 30/30 i.e. 35/25. The average rep range was 23 swings per minute.  I am only guessing but would say, given Nick’s body comp, he would have burned around 600cal plus couple of hundred as an afterburn. Not a bad day’s work. Well done !

Different intervals are on the menu !

    We have another student who took on the challenge. Anna completed the 1000 swing challenge today in 46mins with an 8kg bell averaging 22 swings per set/min. Now we have a lady in the 1000 club. Well done Anna !

    Anyone else out there? It’s not that hard you just have to be willing to do and bite the bullet (or kettlebell in this case).

    I just did 1000 swings as part of a charity event. I’m an RKC so used Hardstyle swings with a 24, 28, 32 & 40 kg bell. Took 1:01:58 to complete but had some camera issues to resolve that cost me time. I recorded as evidence of the effort.
    Was working on an average 16 per minute but attempting mostly 10l / 10r throughout

    Great session
