This is one of the reasons why I use it at the end of my Back major, Shoulders minor workout, so I'm fatigued and can use that weight most effectively.

What I intend on doing is asking (pos in a new thread) how I might secure myself to the bench so I can load more plates... it's been on my mind of late.

No worries about the hijack, others get to benefit from discussions

At least you worked something around out of necessity instead of just ditching the exercise all together. Yeah, securing to the bench so that the weightload doesn't pull you could be a problem; I know with lat-pulldowns (??) you sometimes see knees hooked under rollers or someone holding the person etc, but since you'll need shoulder movement to be totally free that would only leave abdomen/chest areas for possible securing points, since anything lower than that will still allow the upper body to be pulled forward. A plate on the chest?? maybe not a good idea...a thread may get people's minds working on it; there's always an answer somewhere, normally where you least expect to find it at that.

I just realised that since I have 2 of each of the following KBs: 8kg, 12kg, 16kg, I can use combos and make up 2 x 20kg and 2 x 24kg and with the 20kg that permits a 28kg, 32kg and a 36kg weight load...not that I think I'll be needing those loads any time soon.

But if I use the popcorn technique it certainly will permit 2 x 20kg clean and jerk at a later date, if required; and I just gave the grip a shot with the lower weights and 2 KBs in one hand and it works very well.

Gotta get my new workout together in the next day or so.

It's going to be a hybrid workout; otherwise I'd miss my deadlifts and zerchers, and then I'd have to start frothing at the mouth

I'll be ditching some exercises such as the triceps-blaster and barbell finger rolls; the forearms will get all the work they need from the KBs and the triceps-blaster was a floor exercise which worked fantastically but I'd rather just remove it from the routine.

I have to admit, they are an interesting addition; brilliant if you wanna throw some weight/volume-wise around in a short amount of time; great for the cardio aspect, 4 minutes with a heavier KB and you're all-in, frazzed quite literally gasping.

On another forum, I decided to do the 100 rep challenge that had been set, so I decided on 100 x 20kg KB swings (mostly because I couldn't access my barbell at the time) even though I'd only had the thing a day or so and had not swung it up to that point in time...boy was that fun, plenty of cardio there and never moved from the spot.
