Away for the weekend so it will keep for now.
I did 4 circuits with 5 reps wednesday morning and then 3 circuits with 7 reps per exercise wednesday night and a few circuits earlier in the week. I could tell yesterday that my kettlebell "wind" was already better when I did my sets
of dbl swings outside the legs. 20 reps was no problem and I had a problem with 15 reps last week.

You adapt to them quickly. My grip improved in a week from being a limiting factor.

But the increase in wind or sense of work capacity is really noticeable.

Regarding your other post on snatch sets I think Catherine is going to be the expert.

My wife and I did this one for 5 sets each side today with one DB, followed by a bodyrow/push-up circuit. Quite nice.
