Okay- it’s been a minute since I’ve posted- but I’ve been going thru the flagship program now for 6 months. It is just what I do now- and I’m still loving it! I had never used KBs for training, and coming off elbow surgery- I started small and humble at 16kg GU/20kg Swings. I’m now needing to buy my first 48kg bell to start working it in on my heavy swings!! 👀👀💪🏻💪🏻. I’ve been looking forward to this day - but now I’m left with a dilemma (a fun dilemma). WHAT 48KG BELL DO I BUY??? I want something special to commemorate the occasion- I have mostly all Rogue bells and a few Lifeline (Amazon) bells. So I thought I’d ask the community of big boys @Grant Anderson @Sean Griffin @Tom Kortegaard @Bas De ruyter @Rhys Evans @David Hall @Nathan Visser @Nate Dye @Jacob Nuesser - what should I get???

Looking for a solid 40kg, I have CAP bells for my others but want something a bit better as I go bigger. My CAP 80lber is nice and solid but can’t find the 96 or 105lbs anywhere as easily as something like a Rogue.
Maybe hitting a wall?
Have not posted in a while. Worked up to: (Using the Flagship Program) ( 4 x per week) - 2 hand swings with 40 kg (going to 48kg) - TGU 40 kg, (couldn't get all of the 10 TGUs with 40kg). Hit a wall, felt weak. Started to do 1 hand swings: (3 to 4 x per week) - 1 hand swings with 24 kg (going to 28kg) - TGU 32 kg Last week I took a deload week because I have had a lot of stress in my life. (3 x on the week) - 2 hand swings with 28 kg - TGU with 28 kg This next week I will begin working my way up to heavier 1 hand swings. (4 x per week) - 1 hand swings 24 kg (Heavier KB of 28 kg) - TGU 32 kg (Heavier KB of 40 kg) Ive been rejected from the 40 kg TGUs maybe I can just work myself up with these "lower" bells with the 1 hand swings, after all it is less weight on my frame even if it is harder with only one hand. Any suggestions of how to proceed? @Grant Anderson

That’s awesome strength but Mike has solid points that will only pay dividends in the end.
Ended up back in PT with L5-S1 bulge
Got great results from the paid program and love the simplicity. Issue I have is old injury from work that popped up and now has gotten worse. I had a swollen (slight bulge) disc years ago when the injury happened and had kept it in check. Due to heavy swings and get ups, I now have a more significant injury and am curious how to train with swings being on hold for a while? I do have work outs from the PT but those are for the back and he didn’t restrict my Working out.

I’ll give the DLs a shot. I like doing offset sumo dead’s

I do those as part of my warm up for that very reason. Best warm up if you break down the movement slow in the first few ranges of the ROM of the rep with doubles. I am too janky to do unilaterals right now lol
December challenges
Full disclosure! With a newborn baby, sleeping between 5-7 hours of broken up sleep per night has been making it tough to do Get ups 4 times per week. My knees are aching since it’s cold and due to sleep deprivation. Swings aren’t bad at all, and the full body lifts aren’t bad either. But putting gains with heavier bells and get ups multiple days per week on hold currently. It’s still all worth it! We love our son so much!

Ok don’t worry about 4 days man, look for like 1-2 days. Or if you wanna be feogfy split them lifts up over the day. As you walk past the KB in the living room do a set of get ups. Do some swings. You’ll grease the groove and improve without needing to exert tons of energy you don’t have to then not recover. Sleep is key, diet is key, training is stimulus and damage. Growth is key - which happens when you sleep or rest. Since sleep is scarce right now, from one dad to another, do what you can and what works for you. I hiring yourself will make it ALL harder. Take it from someone who did, with a new born and had to PT for his first 6 months of life…
