    Not sure if it's as a result of the bjj or if I've been over doing it with my mobility work this week. I've been stretching and working on my prying goblet squats for hip mobility during my lunch hours.

    Do you mean not moving up until you can do 100 swings straight, rather than in 10 sets of 10? If so, I wouldn't worry about that. As soon as you are comfortable that you can do the 10 x 10 in under 5 mins on any given day start working in a set using the 24kg.

    Don't forget, Pavel actually recommends 24kg as the starting weight for an averagely strong man, starting with 2 handed swings then working in the 1 handed after getting really comfortable with the 2.

    If your already doing 1 handed with the 20kg, maybe up the weight but drop back to 2 handed, you'll soon jump back up to 1 handed
    It was the 10 sets of 10 without stopping, but you're right, I can do it in well under 5 mins, and I'd like to think I'm a bit above average strength wise, me back argues that at times, but sod it, so 24's it is, starting with doubles....

    Hope the pressure release stuff works for your back, you don't want to be out of action again so soon!

    Thanks DD, it's helping a bit.


    It's been a while since I've put up any food porn, so here's leftover goat chilli in golden kumara.


    Scooped all of the goat pieces out and put a kilo of beef mince in the leftover chilli sauce to cook off for tomorrow.

    I’ve just started back with S&S over the past few weeks.

    I first started at home with my 16kg on both swings (1h) and GUs as I found the 24kg too heavy, I had previously been happily working 24kg on both movemnts before my back injury.

    Some kind KB fairy left some KBs in the “cardio” room at my work, though the heaviest is a 16kg. As part of my recovery I’d gotten into the habit of taking a break from the desk to do some stretching, mobility and other exercises prescribed by my physio, so as I felt stronger I started back with the 16. The following weekend I was able to do a couple of 1h swings with my 24 at home. 3 weeks later (after just using the 16 3 to 5 days per week) I was able to knock out all 100 1h swings with the 24 as well as the 1st 3 sets of GUs yesterday and my back is feeling solid!

    I feel for you having been there, back strife sucks big time, it's amazing how quickly you lose what you had, but it looks like you're getting it back (no pun intended), pretty sharpish.
    Still doing S&S a couple of times a week aroung me other stuff with the 24kg, I reckon the jump to 32kg is going to be much tough!

    And KB fairy dropping in is a right come in handy....

    Thanks DD, I just need to be careful not to push it. Had a reminder last night, working with the 24 again and something didn't feel quite right on the 6th and 7th sets but I carried on and then had a sharp stabbing in lower back part way into the 8th so dropped back to 2 handed swings to finish up (which felt fine). Feeling ok this morning, so just something to keep an eye on.

    Physio again tomorrow.

    I had a a session with a different physio a few weeks ago at a bjj tournament (they were doing free sessions) and they were pretty stunned I had recovered as much as i have quickly as I have.

    I put it down to a good low inflammatory diet, the foundation training exercises designed by Dr. Goodman (search youtube, these are great as a prehab and rehab) and a good physio.

    It was nice of the fairy to leave some KBs, just a shame most them are the small plastic variety. The only proper one is the 16 but it'll do for now. Will probably carry on using that for a while but doing the swings real hardstyle :-)

    And yep, the jump up to 32 is going to be a bitch!

    Have just been practising with the 16kg kb at work for the past 6 weeks or so, 2 to 4 times a week due to work being hectic.

    As I only got one session in last week and managed to get home early on Friday, I pulled the 24kg out and had a go. I could only manage a few 1 honed swings but the get ups felt good. Strangely better work my left than right arm.

    Hit the 24kg again today, after a full day of bjj yesterday and the back still felt solid. Looks like I've finally turned the corner!

    Will carry on with the 24kg now and start working the 1 handed swings back in.

    Building my strength back up would really help with a couple of comps I've got coming up.

    Have had a very busy time recently. Changed jobs, training for a jiu jitsu grading and 2 competitions.

    Bad news:
    Got injured the week before the 1st comp so had to pull out

    Put an inch on my waist in the past month, probably due to a combination of the stress of leaving old job & starting new, no longer walking 40 plus flights of stairs a day due to the new job being in a low building and not training (either bjj or kettlebells) as frequently as I should be.


    Good news:
    New job is better and now I'm over the "new kid" stress, much less stressful than my previous.

    I'm now 2nd stripe white belt after 9 months training bjj, though I was of the mat for 2 or 3 months due to injury.

    Looking forward to travelling to Oz shortly for my (now) 1st competition. There's a saying in bjj that goes "you win or you learn". Either way, it's goingtoo bea goodexperience.

    As I haven't competed in anything for decades, the adrenalin dump and the resulting physiological effects is going to be an out of the ordinary experience which will make it totally different to rolling in training.
