    Q) For the record, when you go for this type of conditioning , do you opt for two handed swings - or alternate 1 handed swings ??
    Also what weight bell do you swing with when going for these numbers?

    A)I would do a combination of one hand and two handed swings. BTW, I don't train this way, but this is how I've been training my brother for the RKC next week and how I'm gonna start training myself very soon for level II next month. I'd say Dee does close to 1000 reps in a workout about once every 2 weeks.

    Q) If I was thinking of having a crack at this would it be advisable to start with say a 20kg for 1000, then try a 24kg etc ?

    A) I would prefare for someone (who is already well capable of swinging the weight) to start with snatch test weight (24kg) and above, vary the load to keep things interesting and do about 200 swings for your first "long practice", (you should veiw it as a practice and it should be an effort that is well within you. . . always, even by the time you reach 1000 reps). The sets should be crisp and the reps should only go as high as you can whilst still remaining "Hardstyle" during application.

    This should be viewed in the same way as the marathon runner uses the weekly "long run", it has as many mental benefits as it does physical. You should start this kind of training 12 weeks out and as part of a complete plan. The volume should be built up over time, don't start out trying to do 1000 reps of anything.

    I too am seriously considering taking this RKC since doing the HKC a couple of weeks back in London.

    Theres just one thing that worrys me.

    I am still struggling with a lower back injury that won't go away! I am worried that if I put my money down and am not fixed in time, I will lose $300 for a cancellation or transfer.

    Don't know what to do, so annoying cos I am so up for this!!

    Good to see you're both going to Belfast! Sometimes the best way around an injury is necessity! Have patcience, but be relentless at the same time. The help is out there, and in here.

    Good Luck!

    Am hoping to go along too. Found a great coach in Roger McCarthy RKC II at BodyOlogy, who is helping me with technique, but so much to learn, never mind getting in good enough condition. Less worried about the snatch test (naïvely) than just getting through 3 days of volume and grad workout without breaking. Perhaps I should just man up and sign on, rather than waiting to see how training goes first?

    Its my experience your training only kicks into the gear it needs to be in once you've actually signed up for something and there's no escape LOL! Then the "Fight" response kicks in!

    Roger is excellent, you'll learn a lot under him, his name has been suggested as a possible assistant at the event but I don't know yet what the final verdict is?

    Your instincts to focus on overall work capacity and not putting all your eggs in the snatch test basket are wise!

    Good luck with your decision!

    Decided to bite the bullet and just go for it. Lots of hard work ahead, but very exciting if slightly scary

    Have set up a twitter feed to help motivate me www.twitter.com/RCKettlebell feel free to follow and yell encouragement!

    Looking forward to meeting everybody there.
