    Default Ending Double KB Cycle - What Next?

    Hi gang,

    Over the weekend I finished approx. 12 weeks of my first double KB cycle (two weeks of practice, then 10 actual work weeks). I feel like I've peaked by pressing two KBs closest to my bodyweight.

    What would be a good cycle to do now? Although I love double drills, and need more experience with them, I don't want to get burnt out...

    If you love doubles, and you 'finished' some type of routine you were doing, but you need more experience with them - then do more doubles - just change up the routine you've been doing.

    Hey Dan, I've been doing doubles for about 7 months. I did 12 weeks of EDT, then did 4 weeks of German Volume Training (brutal) and then moved up from 55's to 70's. I read a lot of Mahler's stuff including his solution to Size and Strength. He has a 16 week program for doubles where you switch up your routine every 4 weeks. If your goal is to get really strong, it's a great way to go. After 16 weeks lighten it up for 3 and start up again.

    I did the 3X3 program from Mahler's KB Solution for Size & Strength (see BChase's comment). Worked quite well. When I started, I could barely press two 28s. Last weekend I pressed two 36s. That be a 35 pound increase.

    Thanks, guys. Sounds like I can spend more time on doubles without burn-out. Just change up the intensity/routines.

    Don't mean to steal the thread, hopefully my question is valid for the OP as well

    What were your results with EDT and GVT respectively? I've been interested in trying both, EDT in particular. Did you do the exercises as suggested by Mike in his book?

    Com Stefan,

    Loved EDT. Doing it now and got excellent results from it. Not only are you trying to hit a PR every time, from a cardio perspective, you're huffing and puffing. Dave Whitley has 3 different EDT workouts in his 101 kb workouts. I did each one for 4 weeks. The total body one is brutal.
    Right now for upper body, I'm doing 20 minutes, Double Military Press alternated w/ Double Rows, rest 5 and then doing 15 minutes of alternating floor press and pullups or renegade rows
    For lower body, 20 minutes of Double Squats alternated w/ Snatch or One Arm Swing, rest 5 then for 15 minutes, Goblet Squat alternated w/ Double Swings

    Was not a fan of German Volume Training, even at 10 sets of 5 or 6. I've done it and was more tired and bored vs. feeling challenged. My personal favorite was the Cluster Training, doing 5 sets of Rest Pause.

    Thanks for the info! Will give EDT a go... Sounds like a fun and effective program.
