    Default 1000 swings a day... for ten days!

    Some good and some bad. Form has pretty much gone out the window with sets as long as 100 reps. Pretty interesting and fun to read though. Check it out..

    This was an interesting experiment. I am not surprised by the fat loss that the folks who did the swings in an anaerobic fashion achieved. I was surprised by the uptick in lean body mass at the same time. I do believe most of the folks were kettlebellers so the increase in muscle mass may have been due largely in part to the increase in volume (and calories consumed) with their chosen implement.

    The swing is imo one of the best all around movements you can do.

    I was actually surprised that the guy who did it in the breathing ladder style didn't lose fat.

    same here. I would think if anything that would enhance the fat loss. I also feel pretty bad for Angela.

    i hear ya. i wonder what he did (notice the mention of drinking) to get in the way of body comp improvements made by the other test subjects. I wouldn't expect the breathing/tempo part to be the variable that threw things off.

    Note that the increase in fat-free mass is not necessarily an increase in muscle. Hydration levels that vary from the level assumed in the DEXA'S formula can muck with the results. Nobody puts on 12lbs of muscle in 10 days absent pharmacological help.

    Heathers' failure to drop fat is likely explained more by food inhalation than by breathing ladders.
