This means:

8x left arm kb swing + left arm kb high pull
then 8x with right arm
then 8x left arm kb push press
then 8x right arm kb push press

Niels -The swing high-pull is one exercise. Do 8 of those per arm, then 8 push press per arm - that = 1 set.

Snatch - 80% x 1 x 5
78 x 1 x 5

Clean & jerk - 80% x 1 x 5
97 x 1 x 5

Back squat - 75% x 5 x 5
Only made one set to four reps and had to cut it due to back fatigue

4 sets; no rest:
1-arm KB swing high-pull x 8/arm
1-arm KB push press x 8/arm

1 pood

Then I did it all wrong. I did about twice the work on the swings by performing a swing first, then a high pull at the finish of a second swing; counting those 2 swings as 1 rep.

That's not a problem, but my question remains then:
How do I perform a KB swing high-pull

Is that like I performed the high-pull? -> KB swing till eye-height and pulling the kb towards the body at the top of the swing?


(Snatches at a light 50kg for technique; C&J at 80kg; Back squat at 90kg; KB 24kg)
