nice. I can't wait to build up to 400 swing work outs.

So, you do 40 reps/min on the swing sets, then rest 30 seconds?

I want to give this a shot:)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Yeah Brad. These are Hardstyle 2 handed swings. I line the weights up in a row and work my way down the line. You have to really push it to complete the set in 1 minute, especially during the weight switches. Towards the end I would go over a few seconds.....not a big deal, but it does decrease your rest. I use a gymboss to keep me honest on the time intervals.
Good luck....let me know how you like the routine.

Using the Queen of Swing's theories helps break up the monotony of doing large volume swings. Each set is broken into 4 sets of 10 and before you know it you have done 400 swings in 15 minutes and are huffing and puffing....

It smoked me!! It was real tough for me to get all 40 in a minute, I think I made it once. First time I've ever done that many swings. I can see why you haven't lost your wind. I'm going to work that in once per week....Thanks!
