Default Walking Swings

Mr. Jason C. Brown and his kettlebell circus. Good stuff to mess around with as always.

Hah. I just gave him some shit for sending 3 emails about a teleconference with him and Zack Evens-Esh in 4 days. I think he might have manually unsubscribed me.

Regarding walking swings:

What's is the benefit of doing these instead of swings? Just to switch things up?

I can see that they might be a nice progression for complexity of movement, but sometimes adding complexity without a clear reason for doing so isn't worth it.

How many sessions of walking swings have you done in the last 4 weeks?

Is this something you have your clients do on a frequent basis?

Hmm, personally I would not use such an exercise, instead I would either combine running 400m in 5K or even better in one mile tempo with 20--25 KB swings (doing a couple of rounds of the complex) or simply swing more weight, that is, do double KB swings.
I agree with Steve on this one, complexity is good if there is a good reason for it, and with walking swings I don't see the reason.

Regards,

Peter

Craig, that's not one of them Bulgarian wresting bags in your avatar, is it?

The whole discussion of the role of variety in exercise movement selection is probably one worth having.
