Ummm ... It's early and all, but maybe my ex was right when she introduced me to her mum as "not very bright but lifts heavy things" ... my brain hurts.


I'm gonna go lift something heavy:dunno:

Cheers, kempie

David.. I agree.. my time would be significantly increased if I went up on weight...but I really like this exercise as a measure of overall fitness & could use the 60# as a baseline.. Anything heavier than a total of 60# & I'd probably have to use the barbell.Towards the end this felt like burpees gone bad & I was exhausted...naturally.
It might be interesting to do a round using 33%BWT & a set with 50% BWT & a set with 75% add the three for total...

I like that (3 different loads as % of bw, get a total time) . . . definitely tests "power" under three different conditions.

A lot easier on the head than my calculation, too.

Why not try and do C&Js with a pair of 70# KB for the required reps? In Kettlebell competition it's called the long cycle. Valery Fedorenko (KB world Champ) did 84 reps in 10 minutes without putting the bells down (only can "rest" them overhead or on your chest). Bodyweight - 175# Deadlift = 500# 1 handed DL = 286#

Here's a link to him doing 40 reps with a pair of 53# KBs in 3 minutes.

Hi Tom: I think the short (and true) answer to your question is: 'Because it would be very, very hard that way' . . . I'd be fortunate if I could do them with two 36's or 54's. I'd probably fall backwards trying to do them with 70's.

Was thinking also that the LCCJ doesn't go from the floor as demonsrated in that vid. I think the dead stop changes things quite a bit.

I like Tom's idea. Even at rest, the load remains on the body. I say this now after witnessing Valery perform yesterday. Impressive.

Then it becomes a different challenge and shouldn't be compared to the one posted.

I think that if the end result of this is that we discover that it's always going to be faster to put a lighter weight overhead we can chuck the 10000 lb thing out and say that it's not a great measure of strength/power and get back to lifting really heavy stuff.
