    Second this....Barbell with a reasonable amount of weight.

    A grown man expecting to gain any appreciable size from a 35-45lb weight is futile. Your doing some of the right movements, but with...

    There are lots of areas that fatigue during longer distances besides just the legs. In particular, shoulders and upper & lower back...all of which can be conditioned through swings and higher rep...

    Fwiw...maybe swings instead of Deadlift if a 32kg bell is the heaviest you have.

    Seriously, even if you bought an 40 or 48kg..."for a pretty strong guy" or not that isn't much weight to deadlift. ...

    The numbers for CMS & ms have stayed relatively similar across all rank tables I've seen both older and newer. Some have been tweaked slightly like the WKC to include more incremental bells. Also...

    Linked below are a couple write-ups on the topic. Like most things it is purely opinion, but is borne from lots of trial and error and adapting to what actually worked for us. It may not fit to...

    No Brett....I did not have coaching. Given the highly technical nature of the Kettlebell and a PBS style, it is probably that lack of coaching that held me back and gave me discomfort.

    I go back to an earlier question....is this PBS setting and the results discussed in the paper limited only to swinging?

    Would it not follow that adopting a NON "powerlifting based" style might yield similar results in improvement/ injury prevention of other lifts....snatches, etc.? Since the swing is the foundation...

    Aside from the ending position, the lifts are not that similar. Jerks are more a lower body movement with an overhead support. No doubt strength can be gained by support, but not in a full range of...

    Whether you think it is stupid is your own opinion. You might want to consider that some of the best pullers in history pulled with a round back, so you can take that for what its worth. As mentioned...

    May be my perspective only, BUT....Simply put...COST. If one tool gives you both options... Why spend money on a tool you don't necessarily need?

    NonStop...between 25-28:00 depending on pace (35-40RPM).

    If and dependent on how many and how long breaks are taken then of course it could take much longer.
