I admit, the original idea is not mine… it is a training plan from successful Weightlifting Coach in 40s (you read that right), Joe Mills!
To be honest, I used it for Weightlifting at first, and progress was great. You can read more about his exact protocol HERE: (https://barbend.com/joe-mills-2020-workout-perfect-practice-makes-perfect-weightlifting/)
I was wondering for some time, how to make almost the same protocol work for Girevoy Sport. You see, in Weightlifting an Athlete works in ATP-CP energy system and work to rest ratio is 1:12, which makes it great.
In Kettlebell Lifting an Athlete works in all other energy systems, and goal to increase lactate tolerance and VO2max is crucial for high level Girevik.
To work on that energy system, 1:1 work to rest ratio is best option, and working at high pace with heavy weight is just great for obeying the rules of “cyclic movement in Kettlebell Lifting”.
