    Up 'til I got a Gymboss, I used to use this workout timer. It's pretty versatile.

    aaagh! What have I signed up to? Got 500 done; 5 sets of 100 with a minute rest between each. Now my callouses are aflame (I think I'll be spending a lot of time in the beauticians, getting my manicure on or just put coconut oil on my hands instead of in my mouth.)

    I'm gonna have to postpone my other KB programmes to get this done. That being said, it will be a great opportunity to establish a good base for my snatch; my weakest comp. lift.

    I'm 800 in. Got 200 left. Tomorrow's deadlift day, so I'm going to swing GTG style, 50-100 at a time, spaced out all day.

    Well done Guys,

    I have just found out I have to travel for work next week, so as much as I would like to take the 24kg on a plane with me I dont think I can sneak it on as hand luggage or dress it up as wilson and take it as my first born ugly child.

    Anyway looking fwed to reading up on your progress. Keep it up

    cheers

    Last 200 done = 1,000 swings for today! I can already tell tomorrow is going to be DOMS hell...stretching and foam rolling now to try to reduce it.

    Thought I'd share this with my kettlebell brethren. My fiance made this for me a while back.

    I've reached 880 and popped a callous/blister. It's only popped and not ripped, thankfully. And it's at the base of my right ring-finger, which is an unusual place for me to have a callous. Not been working the swings enough, I guess. Anyhow, I will see what's to be done to remedy the situation for tomorrow...

    From incorporating the tips from the last ten minutes of this tutorial means I'm feeling the work in my traps and rhomboids. Incorporating these tips will also smoke ones forearms and grip (perhaps, the cause of my popped callous.)
    All the best!

    The guy who started the experiment would soak his hands in hot water between sets to avoid callous issues. You can find the post in his blog.

    I'm three blisters in so far. I use athletic tape on my fingers now and it really helps the situation. Also cotton gloves with the fingers cut off help me. They don't look too attractive, but they're effective. Reminds me, I need a new pair. Oh, and I got my 1,000 in for today. I'm about to do a LOT of foam rolling.

    Thanks, for the pointer, ToddS. I didn't find the information that you mentioned, neither in the T-Nation post (in the OP) nor Bud Jeffries' post (Dragon Door.) What I did find though, is that, the protocol is based on double-handed (DH) swings. I'm back in the game.

    My first day's 1000 is complete; 880 singled-handed (SW) swings and 120 DH swings.
    All the best!
