    Default Kettlebell Delorme

    I am attempting to do the modified delorme from BBB and the latest article from Andrew Read. The problem is I can't strictly press the next size bell (or the max bell) but I can push press it, is this alright till I can strict press? I was also thinking of dropping the reps back to three till it feels lighter. Haven't decided whether to do bar deads or just do KB deads yet. If you press and dead lift one day, do you swing on days off? Thanks Comrads and remember, "Real swingers do it Hardstyle"

    TRy it with Clean and Jerks and Front Squats. If you do it this way I suggest doing all your rounds of C&Js first as the Squats will destroy your arms too much to get much out of the overhead work. For a KB only option this works great. Also, for this program to work you need top bells that you can press for maybe 7-8 reps. Otherwise, as you suggest, drop down to triples.

    I've got a whole system of training based on this to get guys ready for BJJ competition. It goes for a fair while to get them used to moving big loads for long periods of time. The results last year were clear though - at the biggest BJJ comp in Australia last year I had four guys They all won golds (and two of them had never managed to make it out of the first round at any competition) and at the ADCC trials I had three guys, who all won their divisions! With only 5 spots up for grabs in Australia to have three of the qualifiers shows how well it works (and again, two of the guys had never managed to do anything in No Gi).

    Book is coming soon. Sorry to tease everyone but these things take time to do right.

    Hey Andrew I don't want to take too much away from your book but where should swings be done? After workout, or different day, and is there any set way to do them ie manmakers various time protocals, or just to the heart/lungs content? About the front squats, are the double racked or goblet styled?

    Having to take sometime off due to some work related injuries,changing work hours, and just wanting some more quality family time, I had to relegate myself to just maintenance training but I am jumping into the Delorme ring once again (hope nothing gets in the way this time, I was just starting to get the ball rolling last time) I have been wondering though, one or two bells? Someone told me if for more mass two bell will work better. Two bells might mean abit quicker workout too. Thanks
